Developer Christophe Duquesne has released version 2 of SpringSound – a physical-modeling audio synthesizer.
Version 2 adds support for Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and more.
MPE support means that you can use modern MIDI controllers that allow for continuous control over the expression (pitch bend, volume, timbre, etc) of each individual note that you play.
SpringSound produces sounds by simulating interactions and vibrations of a set of activators and masses connected to springs. The model offers detailed control of an array of features including: gravity, bouncing, fluid and static friction, mechanical limits, non-linear functions, and more.
Here’s what’s new in SpringSound 2.0:
- MIDI MPE compliant (compatible with Haken Continuum, ROLI Seaboard, Linnstrument, Madrona Labs Soundplane, etc.)
- IOS9 update
- iPhone 6S and 6S Plus compatibility
- Bug fixes
SpringSound is available for US $2.99 in the App Store.
