Soundplant

Description

Soundplant is a digital audio performance tool that turns the computer keyboard into a feature-rich, low latency sound trigger and playable instrument. Via drag-and-drop, easily assign sound files of any format and unlimited size onto 72 keyboard keys, for hours of instantly-playing audio at your fingertips with no extra hardware needed.Soundplant is used for live music and sound effects, as a drum pad, as a unique electronic instrument, as an educational aid, and just for fun - in radio, television, podcasting, presentations, theaters, studios, classrooms, arenas, clubs, museums, and churches - by DJs, musicians, engineers, sound designers, composers, teachers, magicians, puppeteers, comedians, public speakers, and more.Features:
1. 72 keyboard keys can be used to trigger sounds, all with very low latency
2. drag and drop sound files on to keyboard keys for quick and easy key assignment
3. plays virtually all sound file formats in existence including .wav, .aif, .mp3, .mp4, .m4a, .flac, .wma, .alac, .wv, .ogg, even audio from video files like .wmv, .mov, .avi, .divx, .mpg, .flv, and .3gp, and many many more; free version is limited after 25 launches to loading only uncompressed 16- and 8-bit .wav and .aif files
4. 'background key detection' mode allows Soundplant to continue receiving key input while minimized or hidden; trigger sounds while using other audio software, typing a document, or doing anything else in any other program
5. intuitive visual interface displays full configuration and playback progress info for all sounds in 'detailed view', or switch to 'simple view' for a smaller display of only essential info
6. waveform display
7. samples can be loaded to RAM for virtually instant cueing, or played from disk, allowing for minimal RAM usage and unlimited sound length
8. in addition to keyboard key triggering, Soundplant can also play sounds via mouse click, like a 'virtual cart machine'
9. capable of playing 8 stereo or mono samples simultaneously (i.e. 16 channel polyphony)
10. pitch adjust allows micro-tuning to the 100th of a semitone and a 10 octave range; easily auto-assign the same sound to multiple keys at varying pitches to create playable instruments
11. precise sound start and end offset control to the 100,000th of a second, more than most editors; easily auto-'splice' pieces of a sound across multiple keys (for example, to extract individual drum sounds from a breakbeat loop)
12. support for wav file cue points; easily set playback offsets to cue points defined in any audio editor
13. realtime volume, panning, and pitch control for each key, all non-destructive
14. randomization settings for varying the playback of sounds
15. customizable sound triggering, allowing for looping, overlapping, restarting, muting, pausing, and fading
16. onscreen keyboard keys are highlighted and animated as they play and can be color-coded
17. a true performance software that allows playback and triggering to continue even while configuring keys and loading and unloading sounds on the fly; multiple instances of the software can be open simultaneously for even more flexibility
18. 1st non-beta Mac version of Soundplant; works identically on Windows or Mac
19. saves and loads keyboard configurations as .keymap files; *new* .keymaps are fully cross-platform compatible and can be easily transferred between different computers with the convenient 'save w/ sounds' feature
20. lightweight, runs well even on older computers and includes several options for minimizing CPU and RAM usage for performance tuning; Soundplant can give new life to that dusty old slow laptop you thought you'd never use again
