a new tool for sound design

Dear Max users,

I am developing a program with Max/MSP/Jitter for sound design that uses images to tranform sound, called Sonos.
It is so far a spectral reverb. One can load its own sounds and images and process them in real time.

To go further, I’d like to have some comments and advices, possibly collaborations.
This program might be part of the design section of my PhD. Roughly, I’m exploring visual strategies for music composition and sound design.

Here is a standalone version of the program that runs under Mac OS X and Windows XP:

Also, I developed last year a program that allows children to create small compositions for the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
I’d be really glad to have comments on this one too: http://www.pompiloop.com/

Thanks,

I’m really into the color mixer.

Nice.

This looks and sounds promising, and there is a picture of Sinan in there…

I like the graphical design you made with the bpachers. This could be a
good example of how things can be designed without looking like a Max
patch…

Im working on something similar with my klystron spectral suite :D

How do you turn down the direct signal?

By direct signal, do you mean the microphone?
There is a toggle in the upper left part of the interface to control that.
But it is initially off, so Im not sure that’s what you mean.

I’d be curious to check your klystron suite :)

by direct signal I mean the ratio of “effected” and “non effeced” signals. I can hear the file playing clearly in the foreground andn the effects in the background, I would like to fully eliminate the non effected signal so that I just hear the effects.

the red layer of the image filters the frequencies, while the green one add a delay and the blue one add a feedback.

so, if you want to have the original sound, you need to fill the filter (either the vector or the whole image) with red only. There is a button “all red” that does that.

Misscommunication is fun

I want to do the opposite of what you said.

I did in fact read the help box, and I know how to get it to play the original sound.

I want only WET

MMMMM wet

wet
wet
wet

no dry

wet
