Grapes is a VST Plug-In to control various 3d audio rendering systems (e.g. Spatial Sound Wave, d&b, Ambisonics, MNTN) within a user-friendly and intuitive graphical user interface. The main goal of the Plug-In is to enable users of 3d audio systems to enjoyably produce and control their creative content in one single software environment, regardless of the rendering system behind, and easily switch between different systems with the same result. The software enables a creative workflow to build complex spatial movement arrangements for 3d audio productions or live scenarios.
It provides all basic settings of the respective 3d audio systems and extends them with a large spectrum of integrated options, for example live tracking of dance movements via infrared camera and their autmoatic localisation in space. To guarantee a fast and intuitive management of complex productions, the software is designed as a multitouch application with an easy-to-grasp graphical user interface concept.
