AudioMulch 2 update
Ross Bencina on Friday released AudioMulch 2.0, an update to his interactive music software. The latest version adds support for Mac systems, along with a new user interface and pattern editor. The software now offers patchable MIDI routing and allows users to automate features such as the Metasurface controller. The update is also claimed to improve audio processing performance.
AudioMulch provides tools for musical audio processing, composition and live performance. A modular user interface is geared toward improvisation, with a fully-configurable control scheme. Users can synthesize, process, loop or sequence sounds during a live performance. Songs can be modified, rebuilt or reconfigured using a drag-and-drop interface.
The MIDI features now allow integration of third-party plug-ins, such as VST software or instruments. The controls can be set using Quick Mapping, while a single controller can be used for a variety of effect and patch parameters. Users can morph between multiple parameter settings with the Metasurface.
AudioMulch 2.0 runs on both PC and Mac platforms and can be purchased for $190. A 60-day evaluation version is also available to download.
