Kenaxis 3.1 Released! Adds OSC compatibility and an FFT Phase Vocoder

On September 30th, 2009, we released Kenaxis 3.1, adding Open Sound Control (OSC) compatibility and a new time stretching tool, the FFT Phase Vocoder to our flagship software. This update, like all Kenaxis updates to date is free for current Kenaxis users.

OSC enables Kenaxis to communicate with a variety of hardware and software interfaces including consumer devices as familiar as the iPod touch, the iPhone and Wii remotes.

Meanwhile, the new FFT Phase Vocoder offers a new technique for sonic time stretching and freezing.  While Kenaxis 3.1 is still loaded with granular synthesis tools, the Phase Vocoder will appeal to musicians who desire more organic, analog-sounding textures in their performances and compositions.  While it is a valuable tool for all musicians and composers, the FFT Phase Vocoder may resonate particularly well with noise artists.

Feel free to read our press release for more details on this update.
