Ambient – v4 is a unique ambient soundscape generator capable of producing a vast array of ambient textures, from the bizarre to the beautiful. The module has already featured on numerous professional recordings demonstrating its versatility in bring inspiration to the creative process.
Ambient processes any WAV or AIFF sound you care to load into it. The possibilities are endless.
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. Often the output WAV will be then imported into a DAW of the artists choice.
Version 4 Update: Ambient – v4 updates, 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.
The design of software includes randomly loaded graphic backdrops created by Mike Podolak. Niccolò Granieri (PhD @ Integra Lab) has undertaken additional programming to bring Ambient up to date and build on the legacy of Christopher Hipgrave's original work.
