Saurus 3.4 released
« on: November 17, 2022, 10:29:51 AM »
Saurus 3.4 (free update for PC and Mac)

The update is available for free for all Saurus users.
Please note that the AudioUnit interface of Saurus 3.4 is not downward compatible.

New features:

- Added a VST3 version for Mac (M1 native and Intel).
- Added a standalone version for Mac (M1 native and Intel).
- Completely new AudioUnit interface.


- Several small enhancements.


- Automation in the VST3 version did not work with parameters that were located behind the 10th slot.
- Workaround for a bug of Ableton and FL Studio which did not display AudioUnits.
- Workaround for a bug of Reaper which did display automation parameters incorrectly.
- The AU version of Saurus 3.2 running in M1 mode could occasionally crash.

You will have to re-select the patches and re-save your song or you might prefer to stick with the previous Saurus 3.3 beta (
