SysTune 1.3 goes Beta – Integration with Lake Controller 6

Since the release of SysTune 1.2 in May we have received much positive feedback from you especially on the new Delay Analysis and Web Interface features. The past months have been filled with intense work to add another popularly demanded plug in. Together with Lab.Gruppen we have established the seamless integration of SysTune with the Lake Controller 6.

Our beta testers have received the first beta release of SysTune 1.3 last week to once again set out on a quest for perfect usability and optimized functionality. If you are an audio professional using SysTune with Lake controllers on a daily basis and would like to try out this new feature as a beta tester, please sign up here.
