New software version 3.01 for the CreamWare DSP cards Luna II, PowerSampler 18/11/01
Starting immediately, CreamWare's Luna II recording card for Windows and
Mac is delivered with version 3.01 software. With the new software, Luna II
positions itself even further out in front of other audio I/O cards. Dozens
of new features and improvements make the recording card more attractive
than ever before. Since PowerSampler and Elektra are based on Luna II, all
new features apply to these DSP systems as well.
The new software package includes a collection of new DSP effects which are
computed in realtime by the Luna card's three SHARC DSPs. Especially worthy
of note is the MasterVerb, a high-quality reverb effects that compares well
against external reverb processors. Also included: chorus, flanger, phaser,
compressor, limiter, gate, EQ and various delay effects. All effects use
the same 32-bit precision algorithms employed by the larger CreamWare DSP
The new version also benefits from countless improvements to the user
interface. Most of the new features have been adopted from Pulsar software
version 3 (e.g. screensets, replace function, search engine). They
significantly simplify working with Luna II, especially regarding the
simultaneous use of many plug-ins. The Luna Recording Mixer and the 5.1
Surround Mixer have also been revised.
Further new developments include an ultra-low-latency ASIO driver with 64
channels, AC3 Dolby Surround digital output via S/PDIF, a control room
module with a test tone generator, tools to enhance the integration of
external studio equipment, accelerated graphics and more. In addition, Luna
II can now be used under Windows 2000/XP.
Owners of all previous versions of Luna, PowerSampler and Elektra can
update to version 3 software for 98 Euro. The update is available directly
via the CreamWare Online Shop, as well as from authorized CreamWare
dealers. The update is available free of charge to those who purchased Luna
II, PowerSampler or Elektra in October 2001.
For users who are only interested in Windows 2000/XP compatibility, a
special update for software version 2.5 will also be provided - for free
download from our website. Tentative date of availability: December 2001.
