which brings the interactive music studio to the Mac for the first
time. The new version — which works with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher —
sports an interface update and workflow improvements including drag
and drop patching .

pattern editor, performance increases for audio processing, and new

improvisational approach to music making. The software offers a range
of built in sound processing and audio mangling tools along with
parameter control capabilities that include time line automation, a
MIDI control mapping system and the Metasurface multi-parameter
After 10 years of running exclusively on Windows, entry into the Mac
market is a significant step for AudioMulch, says AudioMulch
developer and owner Ross Bencina. The software costs $189. Licensedd
version 1.0 users can upgrade for $89.
