Sound Particles 2.1 – a new take on 3D audio

Posted on: Saturday 18th of January 2020

Sound Particles is an immersive 3D CGI-like application for film, TV, VR and game audio production. Introduced in 2015, Sound Particles offers unique and efficient workflows, increasing creativity and reducing the time needed to create and record complex sounds in virtual 3D environments.

Since its release just over four years ago Sound Particles has helped sound professionals create unique effects on many Hollywood feature film releases, epic TV shows, and AAA videogames, including “Game of Thrones”, “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”, “Ready Player One”, “Alita: Battle Angel”, “Assassin’s Creed: Origins”, among many others. Following the release of 2.0 earlier in 2019 ​Sound Particles 2.1 adds a completely rewritten audio engine, batch processing and increased track-based functionality, along with many more feature updates, available to download now.

Batch Processing –​ Render hundreds of variations of your session with just a few clicks. You can use different audio files for each render and several variations of the random parameters. Sound Particles will render these files in the background so that you can focus on your next project.

Track presets ​– Let your productivity run even further with the creation of presets. Create and save an infinite number of track or microphone settings and recall them whenever you want. With just two mouse clicks quickly save or apply any track preset. We have included over 100 of our own presets to get your ideas started.

User templates​ – Save sessions as templates. Include any number of tracks or microphones that you wish to reuse frequently.

New Audio Engine​ – Completely rewritten 3D audio engine, optimized for smoothness, efficiency and maximized sonic precision.

Additional features:

  • ●  Users can now enable / disable modifiers and audio files
  • ●  Enhanced automation features
  • ●  General bug fixes
