The award-winning additive synthesizer Cameleon 5000 continues it’s development. It’s now reached version 1.5, can be run as a standalone application, provides RTAS support for ProTools users, and boasts a substantially revised manual, including new tutorials and tips. All this, plus a whole range of smaller improvements and optimisations. The upgrade is free to all registered users.

By popular demand, Cameleon's PDF-format manual is now also available on paper. The official, professionally-bound, 90-page manual can be bought for just ($24.95/€19.95/£12.95). Cameleon itself (usually sold as a download) can also be ordered on CD, for an extra $10.95.
In addition, Camel Audio recently announced an educational discount of 50% for all students and staff – head over to the Camel Audio online shop for details!
More and more free preset banks are being added to the Camel Audio website every month, adding to a free sound library currently numbering over 1500 patches, and covering a wide variety of styles.
The first of a new set of commercial sound packs has also been released, courtesy of top sound designer Tim Conrardy. These are priced at $24.95/€19.95/£12.95, with free MP3 demos and example patches available online.
And there's more: a free program called MorphMaker has been released by hardcore Cameleon enthusiast Glen Berry, which allows users to create even the most complex Cameleon morph timeline patterns with a minimum of effort. MorphMaker 1.1 even features a step sequencer, opening the door to all kinds of outlandish wave-sequencing experiments!
