[8:00 AM] Mac Web Site Music Creator Updated
SSEYO has updated all the products of its Koan software product line for audio creation. It now supports full MIDI file playback allowing generative augmentation of existing MIDI material. According to SSEYO:
In this release SSEYO have upgraded its entire product range to include the new engine. Major products are versioned as follows: SSEYO Koan Pro 2.5 PE (Win / Mac), SSEYO Koan X V1.5 XE (Win) and the SSEYO Koan Plugin V7 (Win / Mac).
The new integrated hybrid digital/analogue synth allows authors to create and control low-bandwidth audio, realistically from files as small as 1Kb. It also lets authors apply synth sounds and MP3 samples to MIDI tracks and even to add FX to the MP3 samples! It features the following: a range of effects units including distortion, chorus, reverb, delay, compression, ring modulation and filter; a range of highly specified generator units including tone generator, granular synthesis, percussion synth and virtual sample generator; a range of powerful transformer and modulator units including: synching/non-synching LFO, envelope, multiply, add, pan and amplify; a built in limiter.
The Koan Pro authoring system costs US$200 and the Koan X drag and mix system costs US$30. You can find more information at SSEYO's Web site.
