Version 1.5 of Nomad Factory's multi-effects plug-in MAGMA was released earlier this year. This version adds new real-time controls and features that appeal to DJs, producers, engineers and creative sound designers. The Modulation Matrix boasts up to 32 source/destination routings, 8 programmable LFOs, and a programmable 16-step Envelope Generator that allows users to create up to 8 unique envelopes for modulation sources. All sources, including MIDI messages, can control any parameter of any MAGMA effect loaded in the virtual rack. Another new feature, the VST Chainer, allows users to load and access all other Nomad Factory plug-ins or other 3rd party VST plug-ins for use in the MAGMA routing and processing environment.
MAGMA 1.5 comes with 65 effects. Featuring 1-rack-unit interfaces that can be loaded and rearranged using up to four racks, MAGMA also comes with a flexible routing matrix enabling serial, parallel or combined routings. Effects categories include Dynamics, Equalizers, Pre-Amps, Distortions, Reverbs, Delays, Modulation, Sequencers, Filters, Special FX, and Guitar FX.

Both boxed and download versions of MAGMA are available now at ILIO.com and from dealers everywhere. MAGMA is available at a street price of $179 (MSRP $199).
