Bright Light Interstellar Ltd. today announced the public launch of a unique modular synthesizer for virtual reality, Synthspace.
“This is an opportunity for everyone who ever wanted to try their hand at sound design to compose and create,” says creator Markus Hofer.
The company says that cost and space are no longer an issue with Synthspace, because the app gives you a virtual modular system at a fraction of the cost of a physical system.
Users can “spawn” as many modules as they choose. Setups can be saved and shared with others by generating a unique save-code that can be shared.
An interactive tutorial teaches the basics of shaping sound and each of the 40+ included modules comes with help built in.
Bright Light Interstellar has also released the source of the Synthspace Audio Layer on GitHub, which allows people to code their own modules.
Pricing and Availability
Synthspace is available now for $29.99.
Note: Requires a VR headset.
