Robert Tubb releases The Wablet – Scanned Synthesis on a Multi-touch Interface

Robert Tubb has released The Wablet app, a physics based synthesiser and noise toy.

Robert Tubb The Wablet

An animated mesh of springs can be vibrated with the fingers. The Mesh’s displacement around a path on this mesh is read as an audio waveform, and hence your gestures are turned into sound.

Complex evolving drones, chiptunes bleeps or full on noise can be produced, and beautiful undulating patterns created.

The physical properties of the mesh can be changed using the sliders, new sound-paths can be drawn onto the Mesh and the App comes with a Max/MSP patch for wireless MIDI control and more in depth adjustable parameters.

The Wablet is available to purchase for 0.89 EUR. Note: the app is currently not available in the US because of a patent on the underlying algorithm.

sonicLAB updates Cosmosƒ stochastic synthesizer to V2

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 04, 2012 - comment 0 comments

sonicLAB has announced the release of version 2 of its Cosmosƒ synthesis tool for Windows and Mac.

sonicLAB Cosmosƒ V2
Version 2 of Cosmosƒ presents a new paradigm: ”parallel universes”.

Cosmosƒ, an advanced stochastic synthesizer offering elegant sound design possibilities with precision and real time operations, suggesting a new paradigm in sound synthesis while extending its polyphonic structure.

Changes in Cosmosƒ V2

  • Previous versions offered a single cycle of events distributed in a macro cell with defined start, duration and ending. Cosmosƒ V2 offers a second cycle running in parallel with the primary one, and not just that…
  • The same stochastic engine decides the event distribution, cycle length and modulation scheme for both cycles with the assigned parameters. However, the synth engines of the cycles are running independent!
  • You can define a time interval between the initiation of cycles, and change the cycle rate of the parallel cycle relative to the primary cycle in continuum, enhance the continuity and design the polyphony.
  • Rich sonic potential is only seconds ahead with the output “Buffer feedback” and “Buffers frozen” modes with the comfort of precision real time control and processing.

Demonstrating the “Parallel Universes” feature in Cosmosƒ V2.

Cosmosƒ is available to purchase for Windows and Mac, priced at 89 EUR.
