Subatomic Software has announced the renaming of its modular synthesis app for Mac OS X, Antimatter, to "Audulus."
"We like the new name – Audulus – because it's an original word derived from 'audio' and 'modular' and won't be confused with other subjects," says W. Taylor Holliday, founder of Subatomic Software.
Audulus is a minimalist modular software synthesizer and effect processor. With Audulus, users can build synthesizers, design new sounds, or process audio. All with low latency real-time processing suitable for live performance.
The Audulus user interface was inspired by analog guitar pedals: sounds are created or altered by connecting processing nodes. There are no hidden controls, no complex menus, and everything fits in a single window. The user begins with a blank canvas, rather than with daunting controls, and can build up to the desired level of complexity.
Audulus includes a diverse collection of processing nodes, with new nodes in constant development. Additionally, Audio Unit plugins can be hosted as processing nodes, greatly expanding the types of processing nodes at the user's disposal.
Audulus also integrates into a studio workflow through an Audio Unit plugin version, which is available for download at no additional cost.
