Michel Rouzic updates Photosounder to v1.9

Photosounder

Michel Rouzic has released version 1.9 of Photosounder, a software application for turning images into sound.

Every sound you’ve ever heard can be represented as an image and all possible sounds can be made from an image. Only Photosounder truly allows you to transform any sound as an image and to create any possible sound from an image. It is the ultimate bridge between the graphical world and the audio world, bringing the full power of image editing to the service of creating and transforming sounds.

Photosounder is the first audio editor/synthesizer to have an entirely image-based approach to sound creation and editing. Thanks to its powerful and omnipotent synthesis algorithms, it is capable of creating any sound possible. Powerful built-in image editing tools, some yet unknown to general image editing programs, are specifically tailored to enable you to create and edit sounds with ease in ways and with results simply impossible with other programs.

Changes in Photosounder v1.9

  • Live Synthesis mode added, it makes any change to the image heard instantly with no interruption.
  • Cursor-controlled playback.
  • Option to dump/save live synthesis output to an audio file.
  • Image rotation has been changed to make the image keep the same dimensions, can be applied on individual layers in multi-layer images.
  • Layers and groups of layers can be disabled.
  • Fixed layer list in menu in the Mac version to display more than just the names of the layers.
  • Various bug fixes, improvements and optimisations.

Photosounder for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $175 USD (full license) / $59 USD (non-commercial use).

The full license version of Photosounder is currently on sale at MacUpdate for only $49.99 USD (71% off).
