Tsugi Studio has introduced DSP Action, a unique sound design tool designed to let you create dynamic sound effects by drawing them with a mouse or a graphic tablet.

DSP Action is based on a a procedural audio engine, so you customize sounds and then animate them to meet your needs.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“From the sounds of destruction (impacts, crashes, debris…) and fight (punches, gunshots, explosions…) to mechanisms (giant robots, gears, engines…) and powerful synths (screeching sounds, risers, braams…), everything needed to create high-octane teasers, action-packed games, and thrilling animations is just one click away.

The workflow is immediate: select a type of action (e.g., hit, break, scrape), a sound generator (e.g., metal, synth, engine), and simply draw your sound effect! While drawing, the position and speed of the mouse (or stylus) are evaluated to generate a sound that perfectly matches your movements.
In addition, interactions with graphic triggers allow for the creation of an infinity of sound variations. Crossing lines and entering shapes while drawing will start new sounds or transform existing ones.”

DSP Action is available now for US $49 (EUR 36, GBP 29).
