Sound Rider is a 3D visualizer that gives you the ability to navigate a 3D representation of a sound signal in your DAW. As well as the traditional horizontal frequency scale and vertical decibel scale the 3D aspect provides a time axis into the screen.

Sound Rider was written for entry into the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.

Sound Rider Main Features:

  • High resolution 3D Visualizer.
  • Navigation of the waveform with control of position and orientation in 3D.
  • Written from scratch in C++ for 64 bit and 32 bit windows.
  • User views can be stored.
  • Averaging and peak display.
  • User peak values can be stored.
  • Position and orientation can be automated.
  • Includes a 2D view with statistical output.
  • 3 Rendering modes: Solid, Wireframe and Points.
  • Axis that can be moved in the Z plane for clear measurements.
  • Peak and RMS meter.
  • Settings can be altered to change key controls, smoothing, frame rate, ballistics etc.
  • Interpolation - the faster your machine the smoother the ride.

Hi Keith excellent software !

Is there a way to slow down or have on screen a longer portion of time showing ?

I'm using your plugin with my passive radar audio that I use to detect meteors in the atmosphere .

It would be awesome to be able to see the shapes of meteors in 3D rather than at the current speed of real time (disappearing quickly).

How much would it cost to implement that feature if possible?

can the display window be enlarged to full screen as well?

I use software called spectrum lab but I can't zoom in to see detail.
