I updated the Samplitude Pro page to Samplitude Pro X8 Suite. I recently found a number of links on the LINKS pages that had been corrupted, so I reviewed each LINKS page and corrected any that needed correcting. I removed the Sonicracker, Stems, Unmix, and VOXISO pages since they are all no longer valid. I updated the RECOMMENDATIONS page again. I also recently updated the DeMIX Pro page to mention the impressive new features in Version 4.2. DeMIX Pro is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I updated the SpectraLayers Elements 9 and SpectraLayers Pro 9 pages to SpectraLayers Elements 10 and SpectraLayers Pro 10 respectively. SpectraLayers Pro 10 is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The iZotope RX 9 Standard and iZotope RX 9 Advanced pages have been updated to iZotope RX 10 Standard and iZotope RX 10 Advanced, respectively. The NUO-STEMS page has been updated to reflect the new version, which now uses Demucs. I added two new tools to the TOOLS pages: DRUMLESS and RemixThere are now a total of 116 (!) tools listed on the TOOLS pages, which are available from the pull-down menu at the top of each page. I split the LINKS pages into six pages to allow for room for more links! I just added three superb new releases on the LATEST RELEASES page and recently added another 8 superb examples to the new MEDIA 25 page! Be sure to also check out the many other examples on the MEDIA 1, MEDIA 2, MEDIA 3, MEDIA 4, MEDIA 5, MEDIA 6, MEDIA 7, MEDIA 8, MEDIA 9, MEDIA 10, MEDIA 11, MEDIA 12, MEDIA 13, MEDIA 14, MEDIA 15, MEDIA 16, MEDIA 17, MEDIA 18, MEDIA 19, MEDIA 20, MEDIA 21, MEDIA 22, MEDIA 23, and MEDIA 24 pages!

There are now links to over 1,700 research papers and presentations in the field, which are listed on the RESEARCH pages of the website! They are also all available from the RESEARCH pull-down menu at the top of each page. I will continue adding additional content as time permits. Thanks to all of the researchers who contacted me with suggestions for additions to the listings!   Be sure to also visit the Facebook page and click on "Like" to follow the page for news of updates to the website, as well as for related content.
