Arboretum Systems, in conjunction with U&I software, is demonstrating the new 2.1 version of the MetaSynth graphic sound design program at this weekend's AES Convention in San Francisco.
Among the many new features and changes in MetaSynth version 2.1, most startling is the eye-popping, ear-tickling Displacement Mapping tool, which produces unusual time acceleration or deceleration effects and other indescribable audio results. Further enhancements to MetaSynth 2.1 include:
Since its first public demonstration at last year's New York AES conference, MetaSynth has become the most talked-about, and widely used, new signal processing and sound design software in years.
MetaSynth-generated sounds are heard daily on MTV commercials, on dozens of electronic, dance and underground CDs, and in new computer game soundtracks.
MetaSynth 2.0 has garnered a number of notable industry citations including a TEC Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Computer Software, the Keyboard Magazine "Key Buy" award, and a rating of 4.5 Mice (out of a possible 5) from MacWorld magazine.
Designed by KPT Bryce creator Eric Wenger, MetaSynth is a creation of U&I software LLC which is marketed and distributed world-wide exclusively by Arboretum Systems Inc. MetaSynth 2.0 is now available at a U.S. suggested retail price of $249.00, international pricing may vary. MetaSynth 2.1 will be shipping later in 1998. Free MetaSynth demo is available on the new Arboretum Systems Demo CD-ROM, or by download from: www.arboretum.com.
MetaSynth demos and accompanying information, as well as libraries of new sounds and pictures, are also available at www.uisoftware.com.
