For some time back Klevgränd has been developing an audio effect development environment called KRETS. Initially it was made exclusively for internal use to prototype plugins and quickly test DSP ideas. Now they want to let real users try it out, aiming for the release of an official product. Currently KRETS is in an alpha state; it works but parts of the functionality (and design) will most likely change. Klevgränd is making this alpha public to get suggestions for features and feedback about the whole idea. Here’s what they have to say about it...
KRETS is a modular environment that can be used in any DAW compatible with the AudioUnit or VST format.
The application is based on a set of modules that can be connected in different ways, where focus is on low level audio DSP processing. There are (almost) no ready-made effects to hook into an audio stream, the purpose is for the user to create these more or less from scratch.
By combining mathematical expressions and functions (available as modules) a plethora of audio effects can be created, anything from a compression algorithm to generative soundscapes.
