Soundart Releases Australis GUI for ChameleonPolyphonic analog synthesizer emulator (June 25, 2004)
Soundart is pleased to release version 1.0 of their PC and Mac based standalone graphical editor. The development of this program means the Chameleon can integrate even better into computer-based systems.
The rollout of GUI's for all the soundskins starts with the Australis Polysynth:
The Australis GUI module allows the editing, saving and uploading of presets, as well as loading the skins themselves, with easy parameter control via MIDI. Users can design their own patches, manage their libraries of sounds and save everything locally to their hard-disc. This way, the task of switching skins and loading all your favorite sounds is made even easier.
Version 1.0 offers comprehensive control over Australis in Multi Mode, including all the parameters of individual single parts within a multi. Editing directly in Single Mode will follow in an upcoming release of the GUI.
There are three versions available which can be downloaded from the Soundart website, together with a new version of Australis (v1.23) supporting all features offered by the GUI:
- Mac OS X (10.3 using core MIDI) http://www.soundart-hot.com/files/apps/Australis_v1.23_osx.hqx
- Mac OS 9 (using OMS) http://www.soundart-hot.com/files/apps/Australis_v1.23_os9.hqx
About the Chameleon
The Chameleon houses in a 1U rack the same powerful Motorola DSP processing power as found in many top-name brands of audio hardware, along with 2 x 24bit I/O A/D D/A converters and MIDI I/O. Low-level Soundart code allows it to effectively function as a "blank canvas" for talented developers to use how they please. End-users load soundskins like MonoWave II via MIDI and the Chameleon instantly becomes a completely different tool.
The other current soundskins available to date include:
- AUSTRALIS - virtual analog polysynth skin.
- CHROMASONIC - workhorse multi FX skin.
- AMP-O-MATIC - amp-modeller skin.
- INFILTRATOR - monster vocoder and filterbank FX skin.
- FAHRENHEIT - dance music production skin.
- FX DESIGNER - delay-based FX skin from Spin Audio.
- MONOWAVE II - unique open-source fat monosynth DSP project.
- ROOMVERB M1 - high quality true-stereo studio reverb skin from Spin Audio.
- SOUTHPOLE - open-source modulating filter and saturation unit.
