sonicLAB has introduced Cosmosƒ Fx for Mac & Windows, described as a ‘live input stochastic processor’.
It’s based on the engine of sonicLab’s vSaturn, but is designed for audio processing.
Here’s a demo of Cosmosƒ FX in action:
- Three different live input handling methods for the micro events
- The direct input mode delivers the live input directly to the micro events being sampled and manipulated synchronously.
- The circular buffer sampling mode records the live input into a circular buffer and each micro event can access to this buffer with different sample lengths set individually.
- The additive synthesis sampling mode offers the data in the circular buffer to each of the 12partials of the Cosmosƒ additive synthesis engine. Their pitch and amplitude balance can bet individually to build fascinating clusters with the live input audio stream.
Cosmosƒ Fx is bundled with vSaturn synthesizer, which is priced at US $230. See the sonicLab site for details.
