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).

Computer Music magazine launches Facebook competitions, win XILS Lab synths and Photosounder

Computer Music Facebook Contests

Computer Music magazine has announced two Facebook competitions, offering a chance to win XILS Lab synths and Photosounder, the image-based audio editor/synthesiser for PC and Mac.

Computer Music magazine has teamed up with soft synth wizards XILS-lab (xils-lab.com) to offer four great prizes. Two winners will each receive their choice of either PolyKB II (€149) or XILS 3 (€149), and two runners-up can pick between PolyKB Player (€25) and XILS 3 LE (€30).

PolyKB II is one of the finest analogue synth emulations in existence – in CM154′s review, we slapped it with a Performance award and a 9/10 rating.

XILS 3 offers a semimodular design based on the classic EMS VCS3 synth. CM143′s review saw it garner a 9/10 score and a Performance award.

Computer Music magazine is also offering a chance to win one of 10 copies of Photosounder.

Photosounder works by converting sound into an image, for direct editing in a visual manner, offering up numerous editing options that you simply won’t find anywhere else. It’s a lot more fun, intuitive and easy to use than you might expect, so don’t write it off as a high-brow tool that’s only for tech-heads!

The entry forms for both competitions are available to those who ‘like’ Computer Music on Facebook. The XILS Lab competition deadline is 8 April 2011, the Photosounder one ends 15 April 2011.

Note: Due to legal restrictions, both competitions are open only to UK and US residents aged 18+.

Photosounder

Michel Rouzic has released Photosounder, a one-of-a-kind image-sound editing program.

It is unique in that it opens images and sounds indiscriminately, treats and processes them as images, and synthesizes them as sounds. Sounds, once turned into images, can be powerfully modified to achieve effects and results that couldn’t be obtained in any other way, while images of all sorts reveal the infinite kinds of otherworldly sounds they contain. Ultimately, knowing how sounds look and how images sound, you’ll be able to create images that sound like what you want to hear, or like what you couldn’t imagine to hear.

Photosounder features

  • Loads nearly all image formats
  • Loads OGG and WAV sounds
  • Can save the resulting sound into a WAV file
  • Analyses sounds into images for processing
  • Features spray tools to edit the image-sound by hand
  • Can adjust the frequency range, frequency scale, tempo (playback rate),
    gamma
  • Can rotate and flip the image-sound

Photosounder is available for Windows PC (Mac OS and Linux versions coming soon) for 99 EUR. A demo version is available, with the ability to save the resulting sound to file disabled, and a small noise inserted every 3 seconds.
