The Change Log: Assimilate SCRATCH 9.1, Cebas thinkingParticles, Synchro Arts, Nuendo

Although these are small point updates, they’re often important updates. They can add support for hosts and remove support for older hosts. Sometimes bugs that have been driving you mad can get fixed, and other times it’s a crucial security fix. And, sometimes they’re just giving you some great new features!

I’ve also tried to make The Change Log more concise so I’ve removed product descriptions and left it as a button to learn more about a product. Scroll down to see what’s new!

Assimilate SCRATCHAssimilate Scratch 9.1

SCRATCH 9.1 was released on July 1. New features include new color tools, immensely strengthened transcoding performance and many dailies tools. Full release notes and installer are available from the SCRATCH  support site immediately.

SCRATCH v9.1 requires a re-activation of your license. If you have a valid v9.0 license, your license is automatically updated to include the new 9.1 version. After installing v9.1 you re-activate your existing license key. Contact licensing@assimilateinc.com if you have any question on licensing for version 9.1. Also, note that this version is not backward compatible. You should not downgrade from this version and open a project in a lower version after it has been opened in v9.1. DO create a backup of your projects before upgrading and we advise not to upgrade in the middle of a project.

Synchro ArtsSynchro Arts VocALign Project and VocALign Pro

Synchro Arts updated both of the VocALign products last week. Both products now support ARA2, or Audio Random Access, an extension for audio plug-ins that speeds up communication between the DAW and the plug-in. This essentially improves integration with programs like Cubase, Nuendo, Studio One, Cakewalk, and Reaper.
