Redwood City, Calif.-based U&I Software on Monday released MetaSynth 4 and MetaSynth 4 Pro, new versions of the company’s sound design tool. The developer noted so much has changed that it decided to bypass version 3 when updating version 2.7, the last one released. In addition to a revamped user interface, the software offers such new real-time capabilities as real-time stereo previews and capture-to-disk, along with the ability to create and play music on the fly in the Image Synth and Effects “rooms.”
MetaSynth 4 features six “rooms” — Effects, Image Synth, Image Filter, Spectrum Synth, Sequencer and Montage — that offer different ways to create and manipulate music. Image Synth now supports layers and includes a built-in graphic equalizer. In the Effects room, users can employ envelope control of effects parameters and new effects while taking advantage of improved fidelity.
Redwood City, Calif.-based U&I Software on Monday released MetaSynth 4 and MetaSynth 4 Pro, new versions of the company's sound design tool. The developer noted so much has changed that it decided. MetaSynth’s other windows fall into two categories: windows for creating source sounds to be used in synthesiz-ing pictures and windows for sample processing. But since any sample can be used as a source for synthesizing pic-tures, these categories overlap.
Four of the rooms are new: Image Filter, in which users can create dynamic stereo filters with MetaSynth’s image-to-sound capability; Spectrum Synth, which uses granular spectral synthesis for creating music by analyzing, editing and rearranging the harmonics of other sounds; Sequencer, a non-MIDI single-track sequencer with single- and multi-oscillator instruments; and Montage, which replaces the previous MetaTrack utility and offers 16-track mixing.
The regular version of MetaSynth 4 opens and saves sounds in 16-bit format while Pro employs 24-bit format and includes a recording feature in the Montage room. U&I Software said that current MetaSynth users should receive an email regarding discounted upgrades from previous versions; check the product page for more information if you didn’t receive one. The regular version of the software is US$499 while the Pro edition is $599. System requirements were not provided.
Anyone who works as a sound designer today probably knows MetaSynth from U & I Software. This is mainly known for its innovative image and spectrum synth. With the first one, you can transform any photo into complex sounds. After the principle: paint your desired sound. Additional synthesis methods expand the possibilities of this engine and gives yon endless sound design options here. Even so complex but interesting is the Spectrum Synth which is also included in MetaSynth. It analyses sounds and creates events that captures the original’s harmonics which you can manipulate further.
Since I really like such software products, I was pleased when the news came that MetaSynth 6 was released. Highlights are: the graphic engine has been expanded, the spectrum synth resolution is now bigger, improved workflow of the Montage Room, new effects and compatibility for Sierra/High Sierra. Also in version 6 MetaSynth is still only available for macOS systems. No Windows 10 version yet announced or planed.
MetaSynth is an award-winning electronic music and sound design studio for OS X. Its six “rooms”provide six unique environments for creating and manipulating sound. There is much more to MetaSynth than creating sound from pictures.
The six rooms are:
- Image Synth
- Image Filter
- Spectrum Synth
New In MetaSynth 6
- Sierra/High Sierra compatibility
- Updated Quartz/Core Graphics engine
- Larger Image Synth/Filter canvas options
- Increased Spectrum Synth resolution
- Montage Room: improved workflow with dynamic sound library
- Improved Image Synth instrument and Montage Room track effects
- Sample Editor: New Generate Menu waveforms
- Increased number of items available in the quick-access menus in all rooms
- All Rooms: new Render icon/popup that consolidates all render options for that room
- Effects: expanded VFT filter with multiple modes
- Image Synth/Image Filter: max canvas width increased to 4096
- Spectrum Synth: maximum regions increased to 128 from 64
- Spectrum Synth: improved time resolution for improved resynthesis
