Support forum

We finally have a dedicated company forum hosted by KVR Audio. Having fiddled around with phpBB a couple of times in the past, i really prefer not to host our forum by myself. KVR hosts probably the best forums i’ve ever been to, and has been extremely kind to provide us with our own little place on their site. Please visit the forum if you have any questions about Futucraft’s stuff.

Cotracks – new software coming up!

We’ve been developing a new music software called Cotracks. It’s a collaborative music studio for the iPad, and it’s taken most of our time in the past year or so. We’ve had some really good time while testing it and we’re very exited about the upcoming launch.


New website up

The new website is up and running. I removed the posts containing Kairatune sound samples. The audio player plugin didn’t work anymore. AFAIK all other content is available, although many URL’s have changed.

I’m using WordPress, the free open source publishing platform, with the WP-Foundation theme from 320press, based on the magnificent Foundation framework by Zurb.

Setting up a new website

I’m setting up a new website on a new server. The current service has not been the best possible. The load times have been just too long just too often. I really hope the new server will perform better, but we’ll see about that. The site may behave a bit weird or be occasionally down during the next couple of days. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

Kairatune version 1.1.1 released

Version 1.1.1 of Kairatune Virtual Instrument is out for download. This version fixes some minor user interface bugs and an FXP/FXB file version bug that caused headache when attempting to export sounds on some hosts.

Fixing some bugs

Just dug into Kairatune again – it sure has been a while…

Next update will be a minor bugfix release, fixing some of the issues that were discovered shortly after the version 1.1 release. Big thanks to all of the kind users who have taken the time to report the bugs they’ve found!

If nothing too dramatic happens the update to version 1.1.1 will be available in a few days.

Some FX sounds

Mad Processor has contributed a bank of instrument presets for Kairatune. Almost all of the presets are FX sounds and some of them are really wild and scary and some of the roars are absolutely impressive. The bank is available in the KVR banks and patches section. Thank you very much Mad Processor!

Something from the OSC

There were plenty of really great tunes on the KVR One-Synth-Challenge’s Kairatune round. The tracks are available on the OSC-36 page. A Child’s Hope by Irion Da Ronin was voted for the best track by a clear margin. I got the biggest kicks out of Kaira’s Nightmare by Doc Jon.

I asked the participants to contribute some of their instrument presets and received a good set of really great sounds from Doc Jon, InterSlot Call, Kraftraum, Mark Heath, Manvanmars, Photonic and Ruedi Rena. The sounds are available at the KVR banks and patches section in a single FXB bank.
