Plugin Alliance have announced a new partnership with ROLI to provide plug-ins for the latter’s nifty Lightpad Block control surface. The first plug-in to embrace ROLI’s platform is Instant Delay from Unfiltered Audio, a close partner of Plugin Alliance.
Essentially, what this latest partnership means is that anyone who purchases one of ROLI’s Blocks products before November 25, will receive Instant Delay (normally $49) for free. Plugin Alliance are also offering Instant Delay license holders a discounted upgrade to Sandman Pro — Unfiltered Audio’s flagship delay plug-in — for only $29(ordinarily $99).
Unfiltered Audio’s Dr. Michael Hetrick explains his excitement at the partnership: “When ROLI announced the Lightpad Block, we were blown away. The combination of portability and flexibility excited us so much that we reached out to ROLI with our design ideas. We think our performance-based modulation system demonstrates a future of plugins as real-time instruments — not just point-and-click studio tools. We cannot wait to hear what our users make with this creative combo!”
