Zen Audio is unfortunately closing down as a company, which means they will no longer be making plugins. But, that misfortune has a silver lining for the rest of us. Namely, their Looper-Sequencer ALK2 is from now on FREE for everyone!
You can read a message about this from the founder of Zen Audio here.
Zen Audio is best known for ALK2, a cross between a looper and a sequencer that also hosts VSTs.
Technically, this makes ALK2 a DAW, but one that is streamlined for recording loops and arrangements, and for live performance. Clips are looped live to create layers, but they can be drawn, moved, copied, cut, pasted and rearranged like a sequencer too. They can then be completely automated to trigger effects and record/play at the correct timings, and much more. For live gigs or swift and efficient recording, this plugin feels engaging and innovating at all times.
This is not just a better looper, or a more efficient sequencer, nor just another stripped DAW-alike, but to see all the things it can do for you, please check the link provided and the video below, or better yet, just download it and try it out for yourself. Other than a few minutes of your time to download and install, it will cost you nothing, because it is FREE!
One thing to mind though is that, because Zen Audio is closing down its business, there will be no more updates for this device. This means, for as long as it remains functioning, you may use it indefinitely.
ALK2 from Zen Audio is FREE forever!
