Krotos has released Dehumaniser Simple Monsters, a compact version of their Dehumaniser II technology workflow with six parameters and two unique interfaces designed to allow sound designers to choose a set-up that's best for them.
Simple Monsters is designed to bring sound design back to basics, allowing designers to mold audio from visual parameters and traits. With five adjustable characteristics, and a sample scrubbing element, designing the perfect voice is intended to be easier than ever.
The Bar Slider configuration allows users to edit each parameter in a meter format. The XY Pads allow for two characteristics to be dynamically assigned, letting designers see how changes in one parameter affect another. In addition, TouchOSC integration for iOS lets users adjust the output wirelessly from an iOS device, freeing designers from the tether of sound boards and computers. This could be great for a variety of applications, including live adjustments during a recording session without leaving the booth, or even changing effects on the fly in live theatre or Halloween/Scare productions.
