Audiokids has launched Undertone, a new AudioSuite plugin for Pro Tools. They describe Undertone as a semi-random ambience and texture generator, sound multiplier and drone maker, based on granular and convolution synthesis. Here's more details in their own words...
A revolution for dialogue editors: easily create realistic and living backgrounds to fill your editing in just a few seconds.
The sound is evolving and dynamic and always very close to the audio source, thanks to our highly customised granular engine.
With a few hundred milliseconds of sound, it is possible to create constant tones and dynamic backgrounds: rain, wind, traffic, constant and evolving noises, it just works. Multiple sound sources can be used at the same time to create even more complex backgrounds and textures.
Undertone is also a powerful tool for sound designers and musicians: up to 10 samples are randomly selected by our granular engine to create drones and realistic backgrounds, complex soundscapes and dynamic sound design, from mono to 7.1.2.
- Undertone requires an iLok account and an iLok 2 or 3 dongle.
- Undertone is a Pro Tools only (version 11 or greater), 64-bit AudioSuite plugin.
- This release supports MacOS 10.10 or greater.
- A Windows 10 version will come later.
Audiokids was formed by three sound editors and mixers, Davide Favargiotti (Call Me By Your Name, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, We Are Who We Are - IMDB), Mattia Persico (The New Pope - IMDB), Fabrizio Cheloni (I Medici - IMDB), with the goal to develop new software and plugins for sound post and music.
