Music software maker BitHeadz Inc. has announced support for Audio Units, the operating system-level plug-in technology in Mac OS X 10.2 designed specifically for audio software.

BitHeadz plans to introduce support for Audio Units first with an upcoming version 3.1 update for its Unity software, anticipated for release sometime in the first quarter of 2003. BitHeadz said the update would be free for all current Unity Session, Unity DS-1 and Unity AS-1 3.0 users.
Mac OS X Core Audio technology has been developed by Apple to provide developers with access to audio plug-ins in a more centralized way. Audio Units handle incoming audio and return processed audio back to Mac OS X applications.
With Audio Units support, BitHeadz products like the forthcoming Unity updates will be able to work with other Audio Units-compatible applications, like Logic, instead of having to rely on operation either as independent applications or as plug-ins using a proprietary application-specific format.
