The original free DAW finally gets a big update this September with version 3.2.0.

The long awaited addition of VST3 support elevates Audacity from a simple capture program to a usable tool for music production.

That might not be enough to entice any established producers to switch over. But it’s certainly a boon for new DAW users who need a free option to get started.

Dreadbox Raindrops

Greek boutique synth manufacturer Dreadbox has been steadily building its catalog of creative effects pedals.

With distinct styling and a focus on features that appeal to synth users as much as guitarists, the Raindrops stereo delay is the latest in their line of sound processing tools.

Raindrops’ hybrid circuit offers three different algorithms that combine delay, pitch shifting and reverb with true stereo I/O.

With multiple delay stages capable of 50-1000 ms of delay, Raindrops takes on a dirtier lo-fi character at higher delay times.

Apogee sets its sights on content creators of all kinds with the new Boom compact interface.

Featuring a robust mic preamp capable of driving the notoriously quiet Shure SM7B, Boom promises other handy capabilities for podcasters, streamers and musicians.
