Loris 1.0beta1 released

Loris 1.0beta1 has been released.

This is the first beta release of Loris 1.0. It includes the Loris C++ class library, a c-linkable procedural interface, a scripting interface built using SWIG (www.swig.org), and documentation.

In addition to the source distribution, a demo distribution is available, containing two Python scripts and some sound files demonstrating sound morphing using Loris. A distribution for building Loris under MacOS (using CodeWarrior 5.3) is available, as is a binary distribution for the PowerMac.

Support for .spc files for Kyma users is not included in this release, but will be added in the next beta version, to be released in less than two weeks.

Loris is an Open Source C++ class library implementing analysis, manipulation, and synthesis of digitized sounds using the Reassigned Bandwidth-Enhanced Additive Sound Model. Loris supports modified resynthesis and manipulations of the model data, such as time- and frequency-scale modification and sound morphing. Loris includes support and wrapper code for building extension modules for various scripting languages (Python, Tcl, Perl).

Loris is developed by Kelly Fitz and Lippold Haken at the CERL Sound Group (www.cerlsoundgroup.org).

For more information about Loris and the Reassigned Bandwidth-Enhanced Additive Model, contact the developers at loris@cersloundgroup.org, or visit them at www.cerlsoundgroup.org/Loris/.
