You can now add your own samples to Devious Machines Texture 1.5

Devious Machines has updated its sound design plugin, Textures, to version 1.5.

Already equipped with 340 built-in sounds, the latest version is now affording users the option to import their own samples into Texture's resynthesis engine, via drag and drop from browser or DAW.

1.5 also brings in Granular, Random, Loop and Trigger modes, as well as a new drum replacement feature.

Available in VST, AU and AAX formats, Texture 1.5 is a free upgrade for existing users and until 21 April will retail for $65/£49/€57 ($106/£80/€94 thereafter). For more details and to download the demo, check out the Devious Machines website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
