Universal Audio has introduced LUNA v1.2, a software update that brings new features to the LUNA recording system with control surface support and sidechain integration that’s available for free download to Thunderbolt Apollo interface owners and requires a Mac running 10.14 or later.
The update brings additional analog‑style workflows to LUNA and delivers a highly‑requested feature to users. Control surface support is designed to allow users to perform fader movements and adjust mixer parameters in LUNA using any compatible desktop MCU control surface or DAW controller app on their phone or tablet.
Additional features include Bus Spill, which quickly lays out the individual tracks feeding a bus, and Focus Module mode, which allows users to integrate single fader surfaces into larger surface configurations.
With a new dedicated sidechain Input in LUNA’s utility row, users can apply compatible plugins and extensions — including third-party Audio Units and API LUNA extensions — to tracks for creative mix effects.
Further LUNA v1.2 Updates:
— Mix and automate tracks using MCU‑compatible DAW controllers
— LUNA app, instruments, and extensions now support Apple Silicon Rosetta
— Nudge Editing allows for quick adjustments to the timing of clips and MIDI notes
— More than 20 added features and enhancements since LUNA v1.1
