After the release of SkyDust 3D, a spatial synthesizer at The NAMM Show in April, Sound Particles tells us that they are raising the bar once again with updates that bring a host of new features and functionality to SkyDust users. Here's the details in their own words...
SkyDust 3D is a virtual instrument with full 3D audio support – you play a note and get instant spatial audio. By fully integrating Sound Particles 3D engine with a polyphonic synthesizer, you will be able to achieve ground-breaking results in more than 30 output formats, including stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 7.1.2 (Dolby Atmos), 9.1.6, Ambisonics (up to 6th order), Binaural (3D sound over headphones), among many others.
SkyDust 3D v1.1 is now available and brings full MPE support, more unique and musical presets as well as performance enhancements designed to streamline the user experience. MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) is a new MIDI protocol that allows users to be more expressive and spontaneous in their performance. SkyDust 3D implements MPE in the spatial realm to bring even more creative possibilities for artists and composers. A host of new presets in version 1.1 is designed to take advantage of MPE and its expanding list of compatible hardware.
Version 1.5 of SkyDust 3D, scheduled for release this summer, will bring even more updates and additions such as the ability to import samples - which opens up the platform to endless sound possibilities when paired with SkyDust's powerful spatial audio engine, more oscillator waveforms, more waveform modifiers, more effects as well as workflow improvements like program change control, copy/paste between oscillators, and the ability to link oscillators.
"We are very proud of how amazingly SkyDust 3D was received by the market." says Nuno Fonseca, founder and CEO of Sound Particles. "However, now is not the time to rest as we have many more ideas for spatial audio in the creative space, the first of which we are releasing with SkyDust 3D v1.1 and v1.5. We are hard at work to bring users the best spatialaudio experience possible and have more to come!"
