Nomad Factory has announced a comprehensive new effects plug-in suite which they say is designed for premium quality processing, flexibility, and unprecedented ease-of-use. MAGMA is an advanced plug-in suite that features 50 unique "single-rack" audio processors, each with a friendly and familiar interface, which can be "mounted" into a user-customizable rack interface. Categories include Dynamics, Equalizers, Modulation, Reverbs, among others, with more currently in development.
MAGMA is a VST, AU, and RTAS plug-in host that allows the user to combine an infinite number of audio effects, all in four easy-to-use racks. (AAX plug-in format will be available in a subsequent update.) Its architecture allows the user to interchange racks freely with a flexible routing matrix for building custom effects chains. Individual plug-ins may also be loaded directly into a DAW. For added flexibility, the Chainer Module allows the creation of FX chains within chains.
Future updates of MAGMA will support 3rd party VST, and AU plug-ins, allowing users to utilize the MAGMA framework for plug-ins from other manufacturers. Pricing and Availability:
MAGMA will be available in Q2, 2012 with an MSRP of $199
