Undertone – plug-in for dialogue editors and sound designers
Posted on: Wednesday 23rd of September 2020
Audiokids has launched Undertone, a new AudioSuite plugin for Pro Tools. Undertone is a semi-random ambience and texture generator, sound multiplier and drone maker, based on granular and convolution synthesis. The new plug-in certainly seems to follow the rule that the best audio tools are made by practitioners (dialogue editors) who need them. It enables quick creation of realistic and living backgrounds to fill your editing in just a few seconds.
The sound is evolving and dynamic and always very close to the audio source, thanks to a highly customised granular engine. With a few hundred milliseconds of sound, it is possible to create constant tones and dynamic backgrounds: rain, wind, traffic, constant and evolving noises. Multiple sound sources can be used at the same time to create even more complex backgrounds and textures.
Undertone is also a powerful tool for sound designers and musicians: up to 10 samples are randomly selected by our granular engine to create drones and realistic backgrounds, complex soundscapes and dynamic sound design, from mono to 7.1.2.
Undertone requires an iLok account and an iLok 2 or 3 dongle and is a Pro Tools only (version 11 or greater), 64-bit AudioSuite plug-in. This release supports MacOS 10.12 or greater. A Windows 10 version will come later. Audiokids are offering an introductory sale price of €139. Full price is €199 (inc). A 15-days trial is available.
Audiokids are three sound editors and mixers from Rome:
