The 4DSOUND Suite brings powerful features to explore, challenge and advance the potential of spatial sound.




Spatial Synthesis



Inside 4DSOUND’s virtual environment, sounds can be embedded with acoustic reflections to model the flexibility of sonic experiences from inside a small room to a vast, reverberant space. 


Particles as Building-Blocks



4DSOUND’s particle-based sound objects are able to recreate complex geometries and deliver a rich and complete message to the listener by approaching spatial sound composition on a highly detailed level.

The 4DSOUND Suite is much more than a way to spatialize your existing music, it is a spatial composition, performance and sound design tool.

Designed to encourage thinking in spatial dimensions

The Suite allows users to design sound spatializations, immersive performances, compositions and interactive installations that directly
control the articulation of sound in space with great sculptural detail.






Spatial sound productions can be transferred directly from studio usage to large scale public events
and spatial installations, without the need for in-between conversion and adaptation of content.




Beyond object-based audio



The Suite offers more than twenty predefined shapes, each with their own characteristic algorithms and dynamic particle counts at a high resolution. The properties of these shapes are fully integrated with audio processing in order to provide spatial sound synthesis with incredible depth. Adding custom dynamic shapes is also possible using a Python scripting interface.




The particle system, paired with omnidirectional sound technology, enables the production of Sound Holograms, which manifest as highly vivid and dynamic appearances of sound with distinct spatial depth and dimensionality.



Sound design using position, size and characteristics at its core




While taking the ‘natural’ behavior of sound as its starting point, the software gives the user the ability to tweak these parameters to surreal extremes, providing the option to use spatial properties as sound design tools.

→ What would a synthesizer sound like while flying over your head at 300 km/hour?

→ What would 100 delays sound like when placed throughout the space, slowly moving towards and away from you?

→ What if a sound was cut in a thousand pieces and spread throughout a grain cloud encompassing the whole space?


These are possible scenarios to explore with the 4DSOUND Suite.









Spatial Audio Framework




4DSOUND’s proprietary audio framework is built using the NAP framework; an open source, highly performant, modular, real-time control and visualization platform. The 4DSOUND NAP Framework enables far-reaching customisation for a wide range of sound applications and products to be built upon.
