  • Patent number: 10191607
    Abstract: A user-configurable modular audio control surface comprises master modules for controlling global surface properties and channel modules for controlling one or more individual audio channels. The modules are disposed in a two-dimensional spatial arrangement such that any module can occupy a location within the control surface not occupied by another module. The modules are connected to each other and to external platforms hosting media applications and plug-ins via a network. Control surface users can interact with external applications via remote graphical user interfaces displayed on modules within the surface, and can automate multiple external applications using an automation system built into the surface. Automation line graphs and metadata for both internal and external applications are displayed over the corresponding waveform displays that can include audio ahead of a current playback location.

  • Publication number: 20150066175
    Abstract: Methods and systems for generating computationally complex audio effects with low latency involve partitioning computation required to produce the effect into two components: a first component to be executed on a low latency signal network; and the second component to be executed simultaneously with the first component on a high latency signal network. For certain effects for which computation is separable into high and low latency functions, such dual signal network execution results in an overall signal latency of the low latency signal network and an overall efficiency of the high latency signal network. The low and high latency signal networks may be implemented on a DSP and a general purpose microprocessor respectively or both networks may be implemented on a single CPU. Simultaneous dual network implementation is especially beneficial in professional audio performance and recording environments.
