Just got into the mood of recording a short melody when testing grain and backward delay modes of the REFLEX-PRO successor REFLEX-PRO-X.
I'm still in alpha stage with it but am working hard to get it released soon. Stay tuned...

stw-audio is going native...!!
We're proud to announce that our first native plugin is available NOW!
REFLEX+ is available for Mac and PC as 32 and 64bit compatible VST/AU plugin.
After a long period of silence we're finally breaking a new ground. The long awaited Mac and 64bit plug in compatibility is there.
This is our first step in native c++ programming and will be the starting point of future releases. Next goal will be the port of REFLEX PRO beside other upcoming products which will take a while due to their way more complex structure.
We will spread information of any progress on this in this blog. Stay tuned...

REFLEX PRO V2.1 hotfix

This hotfix covers a bug which could occour with some 64bit hosts. "Rotation" settings which reached the 100% limit could lead to a distorted noise.
Though REFLEX PRO V2 runs fine with my testing environment in 64bit hosts using "jbridge", i strongly recommend to do intese testing with your own DAW yourself before buying the PlugIn if you're going to use it with a 64bit host!

Release of REFLEXfree
Launch of stw-audio.com website
After a long time of hesitation and development on different VST Plugs and more...
And finally after some (many) hours of design and content filling i'm happy to have this site up and running. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do and find some interesting and valuable stuff.
You can get my finished VST PlugIns which are designed for Windows only right now. Maybe they'll manage the crossing over the fruit river in future, maybe not.
However time will tell if i'll publish other things than that.
If you're interested in upcoming releases you can subscribe to my newsletter here.
Stay tuned and have a good day!
Best regards, Stefan
