IRCAM Spat (pictured) is a complete room acoustics simulation and localization solution, managing spatialization (source localization) and room acoustic simulation in a consistent and visually logical way. Spat introduces state-of-the-art techniques for room acoustics simulation using advanced perceptive models, Spat presents the option to set up the output arrangements providing a variety of stereo and surround configurations, including subwoofer configuration. With eight input and output channels available, configurations up to 7.1 and 8.0 are feasible.

RCAM Verb is an algorithmic room acoustics and reverberation processor. It has a modular construction, employing a recursive filtering reverb engine, reproducing and synthesizing the specific acoustical characteristics of any spatial sound environment. Verb provides eight input and output channels, presenting the option for reverberation processing in multichannel and surround formats. A built in I/O routing matrix provides instant flexibility when setting up the I/O in relation to the physical audio monitoring in the control room.

Transformer is based on an augmented phase vocoder technology and a cutting-edge transformation algorithm, allowing for manipulating characteristic properties of a voice such as gender, age and breath, and on any other sound; expression, formant and pitch.

TRAX Cross Synthesis uses a phase vocoder to morph the spectral characteristics of two sounds. The amplitude and frequency/phase spectra can be blended continuously and because the features that are used here are strongly nonlinear, the sound morphing is also nonlinear, offering a way to create a wide range of new and unusual sound effects.

TRAX Source Filter is based on a signal model decomposing the signal into a time envelope describing the energy/loudness contour of the sound, and a spectral envelope describing the spectral color of the sound timbre. The energy contour and the spectral color of the source sound can be continuously blended with the spectral color and energy contour of an arbitrary filtrating sound, allowing transformation that extend well beyond the more common source filter morphing effect.

Pricing is as follows: IRCAM Tools (bundle), $1,999; Spat, $1,799; Trax, $499; and Verb, $899.
