Spitfire Audio has announced the next title in their incredible Albion series of  sample libraries. I'm incredibly excited, and I actually got to play with the library a bit at NAMM 2020. I definitely agree with their description of the library, it feels pretty modern and intimate and reminds me of their LCO library. I'll have more information when I get to spend more time with it, but here's the official release information: LONDON, UK: Spitfire Audio is proud to announce ALBION NEO — neatly turning the proverbial page to open a new decade- dawning next chapter in its bestselling ALBION... series sample libraries and...

FabFilter has released their new FabFilter Pro-Q 3, a modern equalizer plug-in with a ton of power. While many in the audio plug-in industry are focusing on replicating old hardware, FabFilter has maintained laser focus on providing modern tools that make your life easier.
