VRSonic has announced the first release of the SoundScape3D immersive audio API for Mac and Windows platforms. SoundScape3D provides a complete framework for modeling and rendering immersive audio. Now audio application and plug-in developers will have access to a powerful set of technologies for integrating immersive audio into their software.
SoundScape3D contains two separate engines for modeling and rendering immersive audio. Its modeling engine provides powerful sound animation controllers, fast scene geometry processing, and a new technology for designing and delivering animated audio objects. Developers can use the modeling engine to integrate everything from natural ambiences, realistic acoustic simulation, to interactive audio into their applications.
SoundScape3D’s rendering engine contains a completely configurable audio processing pipeline that lets it support a wide range of audio rending configurations from headphones to large speaker arrays.
