Audiobulb has released Ambient v4.01, a standalone audio processing software capable of producing radically transformed audio, sound sculpting and design. It is designed to allow a user to paint a vast array of ambient textures, from the bizarre to the beautiful with sound.
Ambient processes any WAV or AIFF sound you care to load into it. Once the artist has achieved the sculpted sound they desire they simply press record to output the new sound WAV – with the option of live recording any tweaks of changes they choose to make. The output WAV can be imported into a DAW of the artists choice.
Ambient v4 improves and builds upon customer feedback provided by v1. It is now compatible with the latest OS X and Windows platforms and has an improved GUI.
- Granular sampler with random pitch function.
- Amplitude envelope with a trigger speed control.
- Three pitch shift controls for adding extra layers to the sound.
- Tape delay.
- Multi-mode filter.
- Ambient reverb.
- MIDI learn – link to your hardware controller.
- Preset save and recall.
The granular function is capable of transforming and mutating sounds into gentle molecules of ambience all the way to harsh and crunchy Autechre style sound-assaults.
