New Mouse-Based Sound Synthesis Software

RolloSONIC Software, a California-based software firm, has released its flagship product, RolloSONIC, a synthesizer designed to provide a new method for trance and sound-effect artists to create smooth-flowing synth-sounds.

The synthesizer software uses the computer’s mouse as the primary source of control-data to the synthesis-components – allowing for a more smooth and natural guidance of sound.

Description:

Many synths have come out, but they seem to most all do the same thing… use MIDI input as the only source of control-data. The new synth by RolloSONIC Software provides not only MIDI-based synthesis control, but also provides many additional control options – all based on the user’s mouse movement, giving many synth artists new options and new sounds.

New, freeform-modular design:

With its freeform-modular design, the software was designed to be intuitive to configure and, because of this, can be easily configured to make a great variety of sounds. Most synthesizer software is built in a static configuration – creating a situation in which one must try to figure out which part passes its control-data to which other part – usually requiring documentation and/or previous experience with that synthesizer.

With RolloSONIC, all components are open-ended and can be connected to the others at will and as needed – all in real-time. Additionally, there is virtually no limit to the number of components that can be created and wired together in a given configuration.
