We brought you stories in the last week about iZotope technology being used by Digidesign and Sonic Studio and now iZotope have announced that Cakewalk has licensed iZotope Radius
technology to make it available as a standard feature integrated into SONAR 6 Producer Edition
flagship product for music creation and production which has been unveiled at the show.
Alex Westner, SONAR Product Manager, told us, â€œFor SONAR 6 Producer Edition, we developed AudioSnap, to provide our users with a suite of the best professional audio
timing tools available. The iZotope Radius time stretching algorithms
integrate tightly into this feature set, providing unmatched sound quality that our customers demand and expect.â€�
iZotope Radiusâ€™ world class pitch-shifting and time stretching algorithms are designed to preserve natural timbres even with
extreme use. Large time stretches and pitch shifts can be accomplished while maintaining the original acoustic space, transient
attacks, and timing accuracy for a natural sound and feel.
Using an advanced hybrid method, Radius is able to preserve transients and sustained material at the same time. For example,
when stretching a recording with sustained brass and pizzicato strings, Radius preserves continuity of the brass notes as well
as the timing and attack characteristics of the strings.
Radius is designed for completely transparent operation on a wide variety of source material with nearly automatic operation
and is well suited for both home studio use and industrial studio applications supporting sampling rates up to 192 kHz.
