Puremagnetik released Lore
Lore is an advanced sound design workstation inspired by musique concrète, microsound and other pioneering sound technologies of the past several decades. It combines spectral and granular engines along with several other features designed to unleash the power of microsonic resynthesis.
An Advanced Sound Design Workstation.
Lore isn’t simply a synth or effect but a crowd-funded, continuously updated environment for manipulating and processing sounds. Currently, Lore functions as a granular and spectral processor that opens as a plugin in a host like Ableton Live or Logic.
Lore dissects audio into tiny particles that can be stretched, spectrally delayed and surgically altered on very specific frequency bands. From there everything can be modulated for dynamically shifting, constantly-evolving sound sculptures.
Lore is an open-source project, developed by Puremagnetik artist and lead developer Micah Frank and supported by monthly patrons. Much of Puremagnetik’s development for the past several years has culminated into experimental sound processing tools. Lore absorbs these tools into a flagship, modular environment.
Powered by Csound.
Lore’s entire engine is built on the powerful, open-source sound computation language Csound. Continually developed since the 1980s, Csound is an incredibly mature audio framework with immaculate sound quality.
Lore is freely available to compile on your own* (CC BY-NC 4.0) but also available as a plugin for patrons of the project. Updates are consistently being added and each month you will get new features as Lore develops. You can keep whatever you download even if you decide to no longer support the project.
* to compile Lore on your own, you need Cabbage and the Lore folder from Github.
