Tsugi has announced a major update to its GameSynth, a sound design tool geared towards games and movies.

GameSynth 2022 offers many specialized synthesizers to generate all the sound effects needed in games and animations: impacts, whooshes, footsteps, engines, particle-based sounds, environmental sounds, voice effects and more. It also provides a patching environment to build sound effects synthesizers by connecting over 130 modules together.

GameSynth is a revolutionary sound design tool that uses the latest advances in procedural audio to help you create amazing sound effects. It offers many unique features aimed at game, animation, and movie production, like the automatic generation of sound variations.

When coupled with the GameSynth run-time engine (sold separately), it can be integrated to your game as a powerful audio middleware; the perfect solution to fight repetition and increase audio interactivity while saving memory.
