U&I Software has releasedMetaSynth 5, an electronic music studio for Mac OS X.
MetaSynth is not intended to be a soft-synth or plug-in. It is a complete sound design and electronic music composition environment with six “rooms “that you can use to create and process sounds in a variety of paradigm-smashing ways.
MetaSynth 5 Features:
MetaSynth 5 is universal binary, multi-threaded and fully Leopard-compatible.
Recording available in both Sample Editor and Montage Room.
32-bit floating point sound buffers and 64-bit floating point math for all audio operations.
Full support for .caf and .wav files. – MetaSynth 5 can read and write .aif, .sd2, .caf and .wav files in all rooms.
Add output device selection to Preferences. – MetaSynth no longer uses the default output device chosen in Audio MIDI Setup. MetaSynth now allows the selection of any available output device.
Files can be saved at up to 32-bit resolution.
Much longer sounds can be loaded and created than previously.
MetaSynth retails for $599.
