GPU Audio have announced the first release in their free beta-suite of plugins - the Modulation Bundle, made up of a Chorus, a Flanger and a Phaser, all powered by your computer's graphics card. The bundle is the first installment in a suite of plugins which will include a collection of effects using their patented technology. We spoke to GPU Audio in person at NAMM this year and spoke to them for our Meet The Devs series. More info here:
The Modulation Bundle starts off their groundbreaking beta-suite collection, with further installments being added in bundles in the coming weeks - check the full lineup here. The beta suite illustrates their intent to make GPU audio processing accessible to a huge range of producers, sound designers, and musicians - alleviating the pressure and workload ordinarily placed on the CPU.
In the past few months, they've forged official partnerships with AMD and NVIDIA for Windows systems and there is good news for Mac users - they're working closely with Apple right now to roll out support for macOS in November. The Modulation bundle is initially compatible with NVIDIA GPUs, with AMD support and AAX formats coming soon.
Before the end of the year, they'll be releasing an SDK for third-party developers, allowing for the creation of audio effects, systems, and technologies that break free from the constraints of conventional audio. With multiple contracts signed, they have already announced the first 3rd party plugin will be made in conjunction with the acclaimed Spatial Audio company Mach1. Sign up for the SDK here.
Catch the GPU Audio team in the real world - they'll be speaking at ADC in London (sign up to join at Audio.dev), AES in New York, and will be at Adobe Max in LA!
As with their early-access plugin, the Modulation Bundle will be incrementally updated with new features added as they go, so look out for updates, improvements, and refinements in the near future. All feedback on the collection is valued and gratefully received on their Discord channel where they provide support directly to their community.
If you haven't tried their free Early Access FIR Convolution Reverb, you can download all of their plugins from gpu.audio! But for now, get your hands on the Modulation Bundle and try out these revolutionary plugins for yourself.
