U&I Software announced the release of version 5.31 of MetaSynth for OS X, which adds full OS X Lion compatibility as well as powerful new spectral processing features and other refinements.
New Feature Highlights:
- SO Filters: The new Second Order Filters (in the Effects Room) implement combinations of high-quality peak, bandpass, high-pass and low-pass filters.
- New Spectrum Synth Capabilities: A number of new capabilities were added to the Spectrum Synth Room. The new Apply Image Filter command allows color images to be applied to Spectrum Synth sequences to provide dynamic stereo envelopes. This capability enables the creation of rich sounds with complex, dynamic frequency-based stereo movement. New commands provide complex compositing of clipboard spectrum data with sequence events to create amazing sound morphs.
- Many Other Refinements: The new release features numerous useful refinements, bug fixes and full OS X Lion compatibility.
