    03/01/2018: 2CAUDIO RELEASES BREEZE 2.0, PERFECT STORM 3.0, & NEW EXPANSIONS

    [​IMG]

    Breeze 2.0 is the first member of the next generation of our award-winning reverb family. We believe it is one of our best efforts to date! Not only does it sound absolutely sublime, but it is also now one of the most efficient reverbs on the market. It's more than twice as light, twice as pristine, simpler, prettier, and vastly more powerful. It's simply better. Over 800 new presets for Breeze 2.0 are also now available to help you get the most out of it, and we have updated our Perfect Storm Pack to 3.0 to include Breeze 2.0 and the new expansions.

    Perfect Storm 3.0 is a bundle of all 2CAudio reverb and spatial-FX plug-ins (Breeze 2, Aether & B2) and associated preset expansions, which all together total approximately 4,000 presets! The change from Perfect Storm 2.5 is the addition of Breeze 2.0 and three new expansion packs.

    2CAudio - Breeze | Simple. Light. Pristine.
    2CAudio - The Perfect Storm
    2CAudio - Breeze Expansions | Simplicity Simplified

    WHAT'S NEW?

    • Support of High DPI Screens

    • Advanced color preferences system
    • Customize the look and feel of the GUI

    What's not new? Everything that made Breeze 1.0 so widely loved, including access to its original sound, the price, and most importantly its simplicity. Breeze remains true to its own product identity: Simple. Light. Pristine. Happily Breeze 2.0 is all of these things and much more. It is truly the state of our art, and rather epic start of the next generation of our reverbs.

    quantum7 1 more year until I turn 50...then it's all over.

    As an owner of B2, what would the discount be on Perfect Storm 3? I didn’t notice it on your website.

    Thanks! :)

    Hey Andrew,
    Just checking in - sent an email enquiry the other day from your website regarding getting perfect storm - but have not heard back yet.
    Totally understand that at times of software release things go crazy, but also don't want to miss out on this / have it slide off my radar (which easily happens!)
    Cheers, Brendan.

    Thanks for the question. Can you tell me a last name or part of an email address to search for, or just resend it again? I'm looking but i don't seem to find it and we have several customers named "Brendan"...

    Hi Andrew, just downloaded the 2.0.3 version of Breeze 2, and redownloaded the "Simplicity" Expansion I previously had for Breeze 1.

    I added the expansion into Breeze 2 and my preset folder now looks like this :

    Capture.JPG

    Could you please tell me if this looks correct to you ? Also, what is the difference between "F1 Factory Current" and "New 2.0 Factory" ?

    Kind regards,

    Emmanuel

    Hi,

    We decided to change the Factory Bank names to:

    F1 Factory Current
    F2 Factory Legacy


    you can delete "New 2.0 Factory" and "Old 1.0 Factory"

    they are duplicates simply with different folder names.

    Things end up cleaner in the Browser this way, as you would hypothetically have:

    E1 Simply Better
    E2 Glacier Breeze
    E3 Spatial Creatives
    E4 Simplicity V1
    F1 Factory Current
    F2 Factory Legacy

    Just got the free upgrade to the rest of the Breeze expansions that weren't part of what was promised when I pre-ordered the Perfect Storm 3.0. Thank you for treating your customers so well!

    You're welcome. We think it's important to take care of our existing customers. You helped to get us to where we are and we try not to forget that. So if the deal ever changes, we make sure it changes in your favor.

    There's some really great stuff in these other two crated by Simon Stockhausen and Andrew Schlesinger!

    Meanwhile, I've been trying to get the manual complete, but I got slightly side-tracked by another related topic.

    Check this out:



    Solo flute performance with Breeze 2, with left positioning applied to the flute to demonstrate stage positioning and respect of input position within Breeze 2.

    (I think I will combine wet/dry examples into one audio file from now on since it is easy to jump around in playback position in SC).

    Andrew, your wet/dry orchestral examples are striking! You should keep posting these. This plugin could be the holy grail to so many threads on VI-C on how to tie together wet/dry orchestral libraries, and how to give an ensemble a cohesive sound+space.

    Can you share the exact settings used here (and also with the anechoic orchestral stems), so we can follow along at home? Thanks!
