Zynaptiq has announced the introduction of UNVEIL, a real-time de-reverberation and signal focusing plug-in for the Mac OS X AudioUnits (AU) format, at their booth at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, Hall 5.1 Booth A91.

UNVEIL is a real-time, de-mixing based plug-in that allows attenuating or boosting reverb components within a mixed signal of any channel count, including mono sources, as well as modifying contained reverb characteristics. Additionally, UNVEIL allows bringing the key features of a recording into focus, or moving them to the background, by attenuating or boosting perceptionally less important signal components.

Based on Zynaptiq’s proprietary, artificial intelligence based MAP (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) technology, UNVEIL’s applications include:

  • Audio engineers can attenuate reverb in recordings, gaining flexibility both in microphone placement as well as mix-down.
  • Film mixers and dialog editors can remove reverb from dialog and location sound, reducing the need for dialog replacement and foley, and match reverb amounts across different takes or perspectives.
  • Music producers can turn drum-loops rich in reverb into dry recordings, and vice-versa.
  • Sound designers and foley artists can remove reflections and ambience from suboptimally captured sounds.
  • Mix and mastering engineers can bring key mix elements into focus by attenuating components commonly referred to as “mud”.

“Removing reverb from recordings has always been difficult, if not impossible.” Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag said. “Existing de-reverberation strategies either manipulate signal dynamics, require specific channel formats, are limited to certain signal types, or all of the above. Not so with UNVEIL, which effectively “listens” to your signal and discerns which parts of the signal are reverb, much like a human would, and then allows you to manipulate just those parts, even when processing mono sources. As it turns out, the process is not limited to processing reverb, but can bring out or move back the key elements of a recording nicely. Dialog editors, mix engineers for music and film, music producers as well as sound designers will make good use of this tool!”

Unveil real-time features

  • Attenuate or boost the level of reverb components in mixed signals.
  • Modify reverb characteristics within a mixed recording.
  • Bring key features of any signal into focus by attenuating perceptively less significant components.
  • Works with any sample rate and channel count, including mono sources.

Zynaptiq will demonstrate UNVEIL at their booth H5.1 A91 at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, March 21st until March 24th, and hand out personal discount vouchers for both UNVEIL as well as their polyphonic pitch processor PITCHMAP to visitors.

UNVEIL as well as a free trial will be available from the Zynaptiq website Monday, March 26th. UNVEIL comes as Mac AU (AudioUnits) Plug-In, with VST and AAX support for both Mac and Windows platforms planned for later in 2012. UNVEIL is priced at USD/EUR 399,- and a limited-time introductory price of USD/EUR 269,- is available until June 1st, 2012 (prices in EUR inclusive of 19% VAT).

Zynaptiq Pitchmap

Zynaptiq has announced the release of Pitchmap, a real-time polyphonic pitch-mapping and pitch-correction plug-in for Windows and Mac.

PITCHMAP is a demixing-based plug-in that allows changing melodies and harmonies of any mixed musical recording in real-time, either by transforming them to new ones played on a MIDI keyboard, or by setting freely defined target scales. Based on Zynaptiq’s proprietary MAP artificial intelligence technology, PITCHMAP can be applied to a wide variety of tasks, including original music production, remix work, correction of tuning issues and creative manipulation of existing recordings. In addition, PITCHMAP provides functions to remove or extract individual sounds from a mix, and can apply advanced synthesizer-like sound transformations.

“We’re really excited to release PITCHMAP. ” Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag said. “The intuitive real-time interaction with a mixed recording’s compositional aspects via live MIDI makes PITCHMAP an inspiring musical instrument, in addition to being a precision corrective tool. It quite literally lets you shape music with your hands, which we believe makes it an essential tool for composers, producers, remixers, mash-up artists, engineers and sound-designers.”

Pitchmap features

  • Pitch Mapping: Change harmonies and melodies within mixed signals on the fly.
  • Pitch Mapping via live MIDI-input or GUI-created source/destination Pitch Maps.
  • Automatic correction of pitch inaccuracies in polyphonic/mixed signals.
  • Perceptive modeling based Natural mode for voice-adapted processing.
  • Content-aware Mute-Filters for removing sounds, including their harmonics, transients and noise components, from a mix.
  • Transform macro-controls for near-instant creation of harmony- and key-changes
  • Snapshot functionality for fast workflow and easy automation.
  • Continuously variable Electrify and Purify parameters for applying advanced synthesizerlike sound manipulation.
  • Continuously variable Glide parameter for adding polyphonic portamento/glide effects.

Pitchmap is currently available to purchase for Mac (AU) for the introductory price of 269 USD/EUR until April 1st, 2012 (regular price 399 USD/EUR). Prices in EUR inclusive of 19% VAT. VST and AAX support for both Mac and Windows platforms is planned for later in 2012.

A free trial version is available to download from Zynaptiq.

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.
