Audio input may be acquired via built-in microphone or external measurement microphone.
Designed with musicians and recording engineers in mind, it can also be used by anyone interested in the world of sound. Ideal for room tuning or speaker tuning, the app enables portable, precision audio measurement and visualization.
Spectrum Analyzer harnesses the computational and graphical power of its host device to provide precision, real-time readouts that are smooth and responsive. It has been designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the newest features and capabilities of iOS 6. It is a completely integrated app – there are no plug-ins or in-app purchases available or required.
sonicLAB has announced the release of version 2 of its Cosmosƒ synthesis tool for Windows and Mac.
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.
sonicLAB has updated the Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesis instrument to version 1.2, which includes the first Windows release alongside the updated Mac version.
New feature in Cosmosƒ V1.2: Additive Synthesis with Sample Waveform
Cosmosƒ V1.2 offers new features for its Synthesis Engine: For instance a genuine Additive Synthesis feature has been developed, where you can control, automate and modulate up to 12 partials with their frequency and amplitude distribution. You can assign either a sine wave or a sample waveform to the partials. All partials sum up to one micro event waveform! Unheard clusters of sound objects can be created in real time within seconds.
A 300% performance gain has been achieved thanks to the immense efforts in coding for precision and optimization.
Now available on Windows7: in response to the significant demand for the Windows version, from now on Cosmosƒ is available on Windows 7 (for earlier OS versions please test the demo app).
Cosmosƒ is now available to purchase for Windows an Mac for 89 EUR. The update is free for registered users.
U&I Software has updated the MetaSynth composition and sound design software for Mac OS X to version 5.31, adding full OS X Lion compatibility as well as powerful new spectral processing features and other refinements.
MetaSynth is a revolutionary electronic music and sound design environment. It is not a soft synth but a full-fledged sound design and electronic music studio.
Changes in MetaSynth v5.31
SO Filters: The new Second Order Filters (in the Effects Room) implement combinations of high-quality peak, bandpass, high-pass and low-pass filters.
New Spectrum Synth Capabilities: A number of new capabilities were added to the Spectrum Synth Room. The new Apply Image Filter command allows color images to be applied to Spectrum Synth sequences to provide dynamic stereo envelopes. This capability enables the creation of rich sounds with complex, dynamic frequency-based stereo movement. New commands provide complex compositing of clipboard spectrum data with sequence events to create amazing sound morphs.
Many Other Refinements: The new release features numerous useful refinements, bug fixes and full OS X Lion compatibility.
MetaSynth for Mac is available to purchase for $599 USD. MetaSynth 5.31 is a free update to users of MetaSynth 5. Upgrades are available to users of previous versions of MetaSynth. A bundle with Xx 5.3 is available at a $200 USD discount until April 3, 2012. Suggested retail price for the MetaSynth/Xx bundle is $679. Xx 5 is an algorithmic composer and MetaSynth companion.
sonicLAB has updated its Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesizer to version 1.1, featuring new addons dedicated to live performance and automation.
Cosmosƒ is a real-time dynamic stochastic synthesis engine, which does generate sonic textures with a complex event distribution process. Discrete sonic events of certain density are distributed in a time space with their onset time and duration parameter calculated with stochastic/deterministic functions. Each macro event defines the duration of a meso space, and the sub events are distributed inside it.
Changes in Cosmosƒ v1.1
Full OSC support: You can control and automate any parameter of Cosmosƒ from another software/hardware (registered version only).
Manual Mute/Unmute switches for mesoµ events: Like on a mixing console, you can individually mute/unmute events inside the Cosmosƒ cycle: very efficient for developing controlled rhythmic structures.
Preset Morphing: You can morph the parameter space between 4 presets, therefore instantly interpolate over 250 parameters with a simple gesture.
Plus many improvements in the code including quadratic interpolation on all the audio playback routines.
Cosmosƒ for Mac is available to purchase for 89 EUR.
