-------------------------------KVR Audio News
- a little overwhelming at first, but well worth the effort of exploring.
KVR Audio is the Internet's number one news and information resource for open standard audio plug-ins.
We report new releases, product announcements and product updates (major and minor) for all VST Plug-ins, Audio Unit Plug-ins, RTAS Plug-ins and AAX Plug-ins. Plus we report on mobile apps for iOS and Android and of course the numerous related soundware and hardware products.
We manage a fully searchable audio plug-in, application, soundware, hardware and app database (updated daily), and offer many free member services including user reviews, product update notifications and a very active discussion forum. We also host official forums for many plug-in and soundware developers.

About Michael Pietroforte
I have 30 years experience in system administration. Before I started working as a full time IT journalist and editor for 4sysops, I’ve been heading the IT department at the University Library of the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich. With about 46,000 students, it is the biggest German university. Please note that English is my second language. I am trying my best here, but just in case you read an odd sounding sentence every now and then, I hope you will pardon me.
