Monalisa Audio Unit <--> Image Unit

    Interesting work - from their web site:
    ---------------- What is Monalisa-Audio Unit? Monalisa-Audio Unit is a software component which allows you to process audio using Apple Image Units by routing this audio through any Audio Unit capable application. Monalisa-Audio Unit acts as a plug-in host to mediate between Audio Units and Image Units, allowing you to process your audio signal through any Image Unit. All processing in Monalisa-Audio Unit is dependant on Image Units, therefore by installing a new Image Unit you can in turn get a new audio signal processing function.
    Monalisa-Audio Unit is a world first for processing Audio Units via the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), utilising it's abundant resources. Making it possible to use the GPU not only for 3d games but also for audio signal processing. This presents new possibilities for heavy realtime processing, which previously could not have been handled by the CPU alone. From this point on, we are planning to develop a "GPU Reverb" Image Unit which can perform audio reverb processing using the GPU.
    Monalisa-Audio Unit is a part of the application system Monalisa. Monalisa can interconvert image and audio signal, while maintaining it's structure. It enables real time processing for the process or the end result of the conversion, using image/audio plug-ins. Monalisa is under development and currently at alpha stage. -----------------
    They have a video on the site that shows it in action...

      Were you able to download it successfully? The download seems to quit at about 640KB though it appears to be about 2.8MB in size.
      Never mind it works now.

      I never get a complete file. 640KB, 1.25MB and 1.9MB are the closet I get to the 2.8MB file. *sigh* It looks like a lot of fun.

      Got it! Finally. Didn't know that I had to wake up at 5am to get it, though. Anyway - thanks for the heads-up.
