Plugivery : a New Audio Software Distribution Service for Dealers.

Today we are proud to announce the launch of our new audio software distribution website called Plugivery (plug-in delivery). While Plugivery is a B to B (business to business) website, end-users will also find useful information about the products they want to use in their daily tasks. Plugivery provides clear product descriptions, OS compatibility and requirements, the latest updates and their download links, Manufacturer’s videos, tweets and much more content that will help you purchase only the best audio software & plug-ins available from your preferred music store. Plugivery lists hundreds of music stores around the world and makes it easy for them to propose the finest audio software to their customers.

Plugivery aims at being a useful bridge between audio manufacturers and audio dealers. Many great plug-in developers are not represented in music stores simply due to a lack of distribution, that is due in part to the “virtual” nature of the products they build. Plugivery is the first website totally designed and dedicated to distributing audio software to dealers. We have designed the website to make it clear, fast and easy for dealers to promote and sell the best software available on the market.

Plugivery will certainly help many audio software manufacturers by introducing their products into hundreds of cool music stores around the world and therefore offering them great new opportunities to market and sell their products.

Flux celebrates AAX DSP compatibility with a 50% off Promo!

Today we are proud to announce that our friends at Flux:: after much hard work and devoting much time and resources have managed to upgrade all of their products to the AAX DSP platform.

This excludes the IRCAM products and Flux’s Alchemist that use a very extensive algorithm that exceeds the DSP resources available on the HDX cards for the moment and are unlikely to be ported to the DSP platform in the near future…

On top of that the entire Version 3 product line has been entirely built around Flux’s latest 64-bit version 3 framework, vastly improving the processing performance depending on the host environment it is used in.

The graphic rendering in the v3 version uses a very GPU-efficient 2D/3D graphic engine specially designed by Flux. This engine, introduced first in the Pure Analyzer System, is based on the OpenGL standard optimizing the audio-to-visual experience by utilizing the computer’s built in graphics card to give you the best possible feedback.

We should mention again that all Flux:: products have been ported to the Native AAX format and that was really quite an achievement as many developers are still struggling to be compatible with the AAX and some haven’t even started working on the AAX DSP format.

Congratulations to the folks at Flux:: for their hard work resulting in this achievement!!!

Check-out the 50% Off Flux:: from our store !

The actual version of the song and the audio files have been copy-protected to avoid any future conflicts.

We hope you appreciate our “different” idea. And that your partner who gets the song, gives you a big kiss in return ;-)

Imagine if 5 billion lovers shared “I ❤ U” on February 14…

About Rick Paris

The song was composed, performed and produced by Eric (alias Rick Paris) who is the President and CEO at DontCrack and Plug & Mix (yes, we all do music at DontCrack / P&M).

It’s a simple easy listening POP song with a strong 70s influence. The recording started in the office at DontCrack on a basic M-Box with Pro Tools (Acoustic Guitars + Voice).

Eric then moved the project to the basement studio where he recorded live drums, bass, vocals, electric guitars, keyboards, etc. He then mixed the song using ONLY Plug & Mix plug-ins which enabled him to get that “70s” mood very easily…

[The Plug & Mix V.I.P. Bundle is actually sold at the promoted price of ONLY $179 !]

Have FUN !
The DontCrack Team
