Magic AB - Playing FLAC files

Please note: As of May 2019, Magic AB has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. Unfortunately, we were not able to continue developing and updating Magic AB. As such, we could not, in good faith, continue selling Magic AB and have reached the operational limit of what our support team can provide. If you previously purchased any of Sample Magic's plugins via www.samplemagic.com and would like to download them again please get in touch with us via our contact form here.
