10th April 2013
After AudioWind, AudioRain and AudioMotors, AudioGaming will release in early April its new AudioSteps plug-in. It is based on Audiogaming's advanced real-time audio manipulation tools, coupled with a large and high-definition footstep sound library recorded with DPA precision microphones (more than 100,000 files were recorded to produce AudioSteps). The library includes large numbers of high quality recordings per combination, 7 surfaces and 6 types of shoes allowing real-time adaptation of sounds to fit most of audio post-production needs.
AudioSteps offers instant sounding of any media material involving footsteps. Available in most standard industry formats (Mac/PC, VST/RTAS/AU), AudioSteps offers a wide range of controls that allow sound designers to shape their footstep sounds to match almost any kind of situation. Coming by default with around 40 variations for each footstep sound type, professionals have instant access to over 20 combinations plus additional presets creating endless possibilities. AudioSteps has a unique feature that enables sound designers to adjust the virtual recording microphone perspective as well as the perceived distance. It also includes the possibility of adding additional footstep databases that will soon populate AudioGaming's catalog as well as the unique possibility of requesting custom databases specifically tailored to specific needs and specifications.
AudioSteps will be available in two flavors: free with no limitations but with only one databank, or commercially licensed like other plug-ins with a complete databank set covering everyday needs.
