Vrsonic VibeStudio Designer 1
VRSonic announced the release of the first publicly available version of its VibeStudio Designer 1 spatial audio design suite.
Built on VRSonic's SoundScape3DTM technology, VibeStudio Designer 1 is said to give sound designers the ability to render real time audio environments in a way that is both intuitive and powerful.
The VRSonic development team has created a set of tools that they say will for the first time allow the interactive creation of highly dynamic immersive sonic environments. Based on proprietary real-time, parallel scheduling algorithms, SoundScape3D utilizes the power of new multi-core processor technology to render a theoretically unlimited number of audio sources, while applying sophisticated reverb, occlusion, and motion algorithms in real time. "VibeStudio Designer 1 creates environments independently from the rendering process, so you can dynamically switch between presentation methods — from headphones using our own HRTF database, to up to 32 speakers using one of our panning algorithms," said Fouad. "Gone is the notion of separate audio mixes for stereo or 5.1. It's incredibly powerful."
VibeStudio Designer 1 is a design suite specifically built for both content creation and rendering of dynamic and immersive spatial audio environments. Vrsonic says that now audio designers can quickly and easily position audio emitters anywhere in the environment, apply a variety of motion algorithms and parameters to those emitters and dynamically control their behavior using new sound animation technologies. They also tell us that designers can also add geometric structures to the scene with acoustic properties and apply material properties such as concrete, brick, glass, or lead to any structure in your scene. VibeStudio Designer 1 is supposed to be a completely new way to think about audio.
