SonicBirth v1.0.2 released

SonicBirth is an AudioUnit designing application. The first in its category, it allows users to build their own AudioUnit plugins, either by working with existing circuits or by creating circuits completely from scratch. SonicBirth is also a free AudioUnits package, as it comes bundled with a set of plugins designed for standalone use as plugins as well as pre-constructed circuits to modify or build upon for creating new plugins. Whether you're looking for traditional eqs, compressors, and reverbs, or softsynths, distortion, and filters, etc., SonicBirth allows you unprecedented freedom and creativity over your sound.

SonicBirth is based on a powerful, flexible engine. Every plugin can be used in 32 bits or 64 bits for added precision. Since all plugins share this engine, any improvement in speed will benefit all of them.

With SonicBirth, you can also create audio effects and instruments directly in the host, saving you time and allowing you to work directly in your usual environment. You can also use it to modify the behavior of third party AudioUnits by automatically modifying its parameters or by adding processing elements on its inputs or outputs.

SonicBirth allows you to modify the prebuilt plugins and create new ones from scratch. For example, you might want to take the Multiband Scraper, and make the frequency controllable via a MIDI keyboard instead of an on-screen slider.

You could take two circuits (elements patched together), and mix them in an original way! SonicBirth allows you to create and modify a plugin while it is playing, so you get immediate results.

Best of all, you can share the results with everyone! (If you wish, you may also submit your plugins for them to be bundled with the main application.)
