Zynaptiq acquires The DSP Dimension and Surround SFX

Zynaptiq

Zynaptiq has announced the recent acquisition of The DSP Dimension and Surround SFX, and all of their assets and technologies, effective January 1st, 2014.

About The DSP Dimension

Founded in 2005 by Stephan Bernsee as audio and image technology research and development firm, The DSP Dimension is widely known for its critically acclaimed DIRAC time stretching technology, its feature-based RTmorph sound morphing software, as well as its cutting edge audio, speech, speaker, gesture and face recognition technologies. The DSP Dimension web site has also become a widely popular repository for various tutorials on audio signal processing written to explain digital signal processing techniques from an engineer’s hands-on perspective with a minimum amount of math.
Zynaptiq will continue to offer all available The DSP Dimension technologies for licensing and The DSP Dimension team will continue to provide tech support under the new owner.

About Surround SFX

Founded in 2006 by Denis Goekdag, Surround SFX specialises in the design, production and licensing of audio content and creative effects processing algorithms, as well as sound design for games, film and advertising. Their content has been used in conjunction with products and media by Native Instruments, Terratec, Elysia, BMW Mini, VW, Hyundai and more.

“The acquisition of The DSP Dimension and Surround SFX extends our business scope and product range significantly” said Denis Goekdag, Surround SFX founder and CEO at Zynaptiq.

“Integrating these assets with our existing IP opens up exciting new options in signal acquisition and processing, that our users and clients will benefit from greatly in the near future.” added Stephan Bernsee, founder of The DSP Dimension and CTO at Zynaptiq.

Zynaptiq GmbH, based in Hannover, Germany, creates audio software based on artificial intelligence technology, and is known for their award-winning UNVEIL reverb removal, UNFILTER adaptive equalization and PITCHMAP real-time polyphonic pitch processing plug-ins.

Zynaptiq announces PITCHMAP: Real-Time Polyphonic Pitch-Correction and Pitch-Mapping

Zynaptiq has announced the imminent release of PITCHMAP, the worldʼs first and only audio plug-in capable of polyphonic pitch-correction and pitch-mapping in real-time.

PITCHMAP allows real-time correction of pitch inaccuracies within mixed signals, as well as completely altering the tonality, chords, harmonies or melodies of a musical signal on the fly, a process Zynaptiq refers to as Pitch Mapping. PITCHMAP does this using Zynaptiq’s proprietary, artificial intelligence based MAP technology (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) to de-mix an incoming signal – like, for example, a full mix – into individual elements, and then allows the user to arbitrarily or automatically correct and modify their pitches. Additionally, PITCHMAP provides means to deliberately induce processing “errors” to make results sound synthetic in a very futuristic and unique way.

“Our DSP Developer Stephan M. Bernsee has come up with what we believe to be a real game-changer.” Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag said. “PITCHMAP lets you reach into a recording and change the pitch-related aspects of the composition on-the-fly. You can change an entire song from minor to major with just a couple of clicks, simultaneously correcting any tuning issues and changing the key. While there are other pitch processing solutions available, PITCHMAP combines polyphonic capability, a real-time workflow and an exceptional processing quality based on techniques that model the human auditory system, thus opening up a whole new level of creativity.”

Zynaptiq GmbH, based in Hannover, Germany, creates audio software based on artificial intelligence technology, and was founded in 2011 by Stephan M. Bernsee and Denis H. Goekdag, known for their involvement with Prosoniq, Hartmann Music, Surround SFX and the DSP Dimension, amongst others.

Pitchmap features

  • Automatic correction of pitch inaccuracies in polyphonic/mixed signals.
  • Pitch Mapping: Change harmonies and melodies on the fly.
  • Pitch Mapping via GUI-created source/destination maps or real-time MIDI-input.
  • Macro controls for near-instant creation of harmony- and key-changes.
  • Snapshot functionality for fast workflow and easy automation.
  • Perceptive modeling based Natural mode for voice-adapted processing.
  • Continuously variable Electrify parameter for making results sound synthetic in an exciting and unique way.

PITCHMAP will initially be released as Mac AU (AudioUnits) plug-in on January 19th, 2012, with VST and AAX support for both Mac and Windows platforms planned for later in 2012.

PITCHMAP has will be available to purchase for the introductory price of 269 USD/EUR until April 1st, 2012. The regular price is 399 USD/EUR (prices in EUR inclusive of 19% VAT).

The DSP Dimension releases DiracFxAU pitch shifting plug-in

DiracFxAU

The DSP Dimension has announced the release of DiracFxAU, a freeware pitch shifting plug-in for Mac based on its new DiracFx API.

DiracFx is a high performance pitch shifting and time stretching algorithm that allows changing pitch and speed of audio signals independently of each other at very high quality and very fast speed. Optimized for use on mobile platforms, DiracFx uses no trigonometric operations and is available for iOS, Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

A feature-limited DiracLE edition of the SDK is available to developers at dirac.dspdimension.com (this distro also contains the AU plug-in), a professional version can be licensed from The DSP Dimension upon request.

DSP Dimension is the former Prosoniq R&D department and the company responsible for developing the DSP technology behind all Prosoniq products.

As for all the updates released so far, TwistedWave 1.7 is freely available for all the registered users. It contains a number of new features, fixes and improvements, the most important ones being the new support for batch processing, and the DIRAC Time Stretch/Pitch Shift technology, licensed from The DSP Dimension, one of the best pitch shifting implementations, an excellent replacement for Apple’s built in pitch shifting algorithms.

Changes in TwistedWave v1.7

  • New Features
    • Batch processing.
    • Support for DIRAC time stretching/pitch shifting and automatic pitch correction.
    • Exporting waveform images.
    • Support for saving WMA files.
    • Added support for the MS and IMA4 ADPCM codec.
  • Improvements
    • Clicking on a marker moves the cursor.
    • Selecting markers in the markers window selects the corresponding audio regin.
    • Prevent doing a selection by mistake when doing a simple click.
  • Fixes
    • Fixed a problem exporting CAF AAC and IMA4 files.
    • Fixed a problem with Audio Units whose GUI would resize.
    • A crash when Command-dropping a file before 0.
