iZotope has licensed Radius to AIR Music Technology for inclusion in Ignite. Ignite, a desktop recording and creative software solution, is for musicians looking to capture ideas quickly and easily with M-Audio, Akai Pro and Alesis MIDI keyboard controllers. Radius, a time-stretching and pitch-shifting algorithm, will provide Ignite users with even more control over their creative workflow.
Principal Product Manager Samara Winterfeld of AIR Music Technology, told us, "When we were looking for a time-stretching algorithm for Ignite, iZotope was the first company we thought of because of the pedigree of their technology. Even at extreme tempo changes, the quality of Radius is very high. iZotope worked closely with our development team on ways to optimize the integration, which is also something that is very important to us."
Ignite features Smart MIDI technology to help jump-start ideas and enhance music-making skills. In addition to hundreds of onboard instruments and extensive MIDI control, Ignite supports two tracks of simultaneous audio recording.
"iZotope is very excited to have our high-quality time-stretching and pitch-shifting technology as part of Ignite. It's a pleasure to support a product that helps musicians quickly create and publish musical ideas so quickly," says Scott Simon, Business Development Manager at iZotope.
AIR Music Technology will be exhibiting at Hall 5.1, Booth B45 during the 2013 Musikmesse, April 10-13, in Frankfurt, Germany.
