Software Description

Coagula is a graphical editor for additive synthesis. You construct sounds by adding massive amounts of sine-wave oscillators. There are drawing tools specially geared towards musically relevant image editing. Graphical editing provides an easy and extremely intuitive way of controlling the oscillators. You will find that you can create original and very complex sounds with minimal effort. Paint with sound and render to a WAV file.

Coagula reads image data and adds up masses of sine waves -- each line in the image controls the amplitude of one oscillator at a certain pitch. The vertical position of a pixel decides the frequency, while its horizontal position corresponds to time. Red and green control stereo placement: Red is sent to left channel, while green controls amplitude of the right channel. The brighter the colour, the louder the sound.

This version is a major upgrade: The noise generator is changed to do some real work. Added some images to filter pack. Overlays fixed to work better. Also change menus for clearer layout.

Granulab

I use the freeware version of granulab, and it is great. i always acknowledge Rasmus Ekman in the liner notes of the pieces made with Granulab...

Here is perfect demo for Coagula Light

Here is an youtube demo to capture image embedded in the sound file created by Coagula Light.

Coagulalight is a great graphic synth

I love graphical interface software, like IXI's Slicer. This is in that same tradition, though a very different product. It's a good way to create samples for use in Slicer or other sampling synths.

Kudos. Easy to use. Ideal for the non-musician music maker.

Coagula Art/Music

Have been experimenting with Coagula for a little while. Creating bmp files in Photoshop and importing them into Coagula to render as waves.
Very tricky to achieve pure tones and there is alot of guess work at first, but instantly exciting to hear your art as sounds. I use some Coagula work to create "music" with my band Carcass Fracas. You can download our stuff here: www.reverbnation.com/carcassfracas

I'm looking to share findings, thoughts and info with other musicians and users of Coagula. Please leave a note at reverbnation or here:

If you like CoagulaLight, try Granulab

Mr Ekman has also produced a freeware granular synthesizer called Granulab that is wonderful, complex and produces totally different sounds than anything you've heard before.
There is a shareware 8-voice version of Granulab for $20, but Mr. Ekman has no access to a commercial payment network so you have to send him cash through the mail (not a great option).
But I wannit!!

This is the future of music

Ever wondered what music on other planets sounds like? THis is as close as you get without leaving our solar system. Absolutely ubelievable!!

Re: This is the future of music

I concur. Just think of the possibilities musicians and artists working together.

alguien en español?

no entiendo el programa, consigo hacer el rendering,
pero después no puedo hacerlo sonar.
Voy a la configuración de la tarjeta de sonido, y no se
puede configurarla.
Alguien me puede ayudar ?

Coagula

The Coagula Sound Engine and GranuLab are both
downright fantastic. It is possible the most innovative
music software ever designed for the PC. Fuck
sequencing - let's go for noise!
