FabFilter has released updates for all plug-ins, adding great new features
to the Pro-Q EQ plug-in and the Timeless 2 delay plug-in, next to general
improvements and bug fixes. New in FabFilter Pro-Q are an intelligent solo
mode, a notch filter type and spectrum analyzer improvements, while FabFilter
Timeless 2 has got a new wide interface layout option. Finally, all effect 
plug-ins now support the Pro Tools AudioSuite format, in addition
to RTAS.
 
The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions, free 
for existing FabFilter customers, and now available on all formats and 
platforms: VST/VST 3, AU, RTAS/AS, Windows and Mac OS X, 32-bit and 64-
bit. Updates and 30-day trial versions can be downloaded from 
www.fabfilter.com/download.
 
New features and bug fixes in FabFilter Pro-Q:
 
- Added a notch filter type to cut very narrow bands in the frequency 
  spectrum. Double-clicking in the bottom of the EQ display creates a 
  notch band immediately.
 
- Added an intelligent solo mode for EQ bands. Click and hold the solo 
  button (in the parameter value display) to enter solo mode for the 
  current EQ band. Now, you don't hear the effect of the EQ band itself,
  but instead you will hear the part of the frequency spectrum that is 
  being affected by that band. Of course, the frequency range depends on 
  the frequency and Q settings, and is visualized in the display as 
  well.
 
- Improved the built-in spectrum analyzer with smoother curves, a 
  combined Pre+Post mode and customizable resolution and speed settings, 
  accessible via the Analyzer drop-down menu in the bottom bar of the 
  plug-in.
 
- Added a 3 dB display range, useful for mastering purposes.
 
- Added a small output level and clipping indicator in the bottom bar.
 
- Improved the EQ display's rollover behavior: the parameter value 
  display is now shown much earlier when you approach an EQ curve point, 
  making it easier to view the band's settings and use the new solo 
  button.
 
- Fixed possible audible "plops" when selecting a different filter shape 
  in an EQ band.
 
- Fixed bug when Shift-dragging multiple selected points: this could 
  accidentally deselect some of the points.
 
 
New features in FabFilter Timeless 2:
 
- Added a new "wide" layout for the interface that eliminates scrolling 
  in the component display in the top half of the plug-in. The resize 
  button in the lower-right corner of the interface chooses between 
  normal and wide layouts.
 
- You can now change the default value of the Dry Enabled parameter, 
  simply by clicking Options > Save As Default in the presets menu. This 
  is useful for example if you always happen to use Timeless 2 as a send 
  effect.
 
 
Other new features and bug fixes:
 
- In addition to the RTAS format, all effect plug-ins are now also 
  available in the AudioSuite format for Pro Tools.
 
- All plug-ins are now Unicode-aware and correctly handle international 
  characters on both Windows and Mac OS X, for example in preset folders 
  and file names.
 
- Improved the way parameter values with custom ranges and transforms 
  are shown by Audio Unit hosts and Pro Tools (e.g. for automation 
  purposes).
 
- Added a Deauthorize option to the plug-in's Help menu, which makes it 
  easy to delete your license key from a computer if needed.
 
- In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: fixed bug that could cause the XLFO to run 
  out of sync after a while.
 
- In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: fixed bug that caused the XLFO Phase Offset 
  parameter to work incorrectly in combination with random steps. Also 
  improved sonic behavior when dragging the phase offset across its 
  "circular" boundary.
 
- In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: Improved mouse wheel scrolling and editing 
  behavior.
 
- In Pro-C and Pro-L: It's now possible to enter positive values in the 
  parameter value display for knobs with a negative-only range (like 
  Threshold or Output Level). So for example, typing "0.3" will also 
  result in "-0.3 dB".
 
- Fixed incorrect redrawing in the plug-in interface that could occur in 
  some cases in Pro Tools on Mac, for example when selecting <factory 
  default> from the Pro Tools-provided presets menu in the plug-in 
  header.
 
- Fixed bug that caused the help file to open only in the first instance 
  of the plug-in. 
 
System requirements for the 64-bit plug-ins are a 64-bit edition of 
Windows Vista or Windows 7, or Mac OS X 10.6 (Intel only). The 32-bit 
plug-ins require either Windows XP, Vista or 7, or Mac OS X 10.4 and 
higher (PowerPC or Intel).
