IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MAC VST3 USERS: Due to a bug in ADAPTIVERB v1.0.x, ADAPTIVERB v1.1.0 VST3 Mac will not be loaded when opening sessions created on a Mac using earlier VST3 versions - breaking session backward compatibility. Other formats and platforms, as well as plug-in presets, are not affected.

As a solution, the ADAPTIVERB 1.1.0 Mac archive includes a special ADAPTIVERB VST3 Legacy Support version installer. Please read the relevant Read Me file before updating to v1.1.0!

 What's new in v1.0.1:

  • Fix for obscure crashes in various hosts. 
  • Now compiled using a different compiler/optimizer. 


Version 1.0.0, August 13th, 2016:

Initial Release.

Please note: ADAPTIVERB uses a LOT of CPU! We recommend setting your playback buffer size to at least 512 or ideally 1024 samples for optimum performance.
