plasq ships Rax 2.0

plasq today announced Rax 2.0 for Mac OS X, an update to its streamlined virtual rack software. The update brings a range of improvements with a focus on the visual aspect of performance - both by reducing on-screen visual complexity for the performer and by adding elaborate VJ visualizer output. The redesigned interface features a new fullscreen OnStage Hi-contrast interface, allowing performers to monitor Rax from a physical distance whilst remaining in control. In addition version 2.0 of Rax adds a new model for building and organizing setlists, with remote control via MIDI and the Apple Remote. Rax 2.0 also now supports 'Quartz Compositions' to provide projection-quality output of visualizers. Other improvements include a collection of professional 'skins' for the pre-installed Apple Audio Units, MIDI file playback and a song notepad. Rax 2.0, now a Universal Binary, features a built-in 16 channel mixer that offers access to 25 effects racks for fine-tuning. It is a free update to the $50 software.
