VRSonic has announced the release of version 2.9.0 of its flagship 3D sound design software, VibeStationLE, on Apple's Mac Store. For $79.99, sound designers, musicians, DJs, as well as virtual environment developers can easily create compelling 3D and surround sound content for their projects.
VRSonic says that VibeStationLE is a feature rich application that will change the way people think of 3D and surround sound design. Using its 3D sound canvas, designers can easily create compelling dynamic sound environments simply by dragging objects onto the scene. These can be audio sources from sound files and mic or line inputs, room geometry that creates physically based reverb and occlusion effects, as well as path motion animation. Designers can control every aspect of how the sound is rendered by manipulating an initiative set of parameters for each object. Best of all, VibeStationLE is completely interactive so designers can audition their scene as they're editing it.
For live applications, VibeStationLE provides a comprehensive Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol that allows users to control every aspect of the audio scene by sending OSC messages to the application. OSC clients can be on the same computer or an external control surface such as Apple's iPad. This creates a host of possibilities for DJs, musicians, virtual environment, as well as installed sound developers to explore interactive applications of 3D and surround sound.
