sonicLAB has released Cosmosƒ, a dynamic stochastic synthesis tool for Mac.

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.

The overall goal of these functions is to achieve control on each event space and perform the process of change on the appropriate operation level. The user intervenes with the system in real-time by inputting a sound source or accessing different type of synthesis/modulation generators and by controlling the parameters for the sonic event distribution on different time scales.

Cosmosƒ features

  • Developed in C++
    C++ is the right language to talk to the computer; means sample level precision and flawless operation, hardware accelerated graphics output.
  • Audio rate operation
    LFO’s , LineGENs etc. can operate with great speed and detail, such as this application offers peculiar sonic phenomena (FM, AM, oscillator modulation) and seamless connections in manipulating the timbre space in continuum.
  • Fast & intuitive interface
    No menus; so you can quickly organize processes, fast graphical visualization.

Cosmosƒ for Mac is available to purchase for 89 EUR.
