iZotope Brings Studio Quality Audio Effects to iPhone & iPod Touch Developers
Cambridge, Mass. (MuseWire) – iZotope, Inc., a leading innovator in audio signal processing technology, has expanded their extensive licensing program with a suite of audio enhancement tools and effects available for integration into 3rd party software applications for the iPhone and iPod touch handheld devices.
“We are seeing a significant demand for our audio effect libraries on the iPhone as thousands of developers are flocking to this revolutionary platform. These developers are redefining the way consumers interact with their music and audio,” explained Mark Ethier, CEO of iZotope. “With our offerings for the iPhone, we are excited to enable their innovation as the first to offer high quality audio algorithms for developers to integrate into their applications.”
Over the years, many companies have come to rely on iZotope’s research and development, product design, and long-term support to help improve and differentiate their products. The new iZotope Mobile Audio software development library is based on award-winning and innovative audio DSP code base derived from iZotope’s best in class professional and consumer product lines. Now phone applications can benefit from the same audio processing technology used by millions of people in over 50 countries, from independent musicians to major broadcast and recording studios and GRAMMY Award winners.
Two key iPhone application developers will be among the first to incorporate iZotope technology into their products. “FiRe” from Audiofile Engineering and “SmackTalk!” from Marcus Satellite will both feature licensed audio tools from iZotope.
Audiofile Engineering, a leading Mac-based developer of professional audio products, plans to incorporate iZotope audio effects for audio normalization, cleanup, and enhancement in an upcoming release of their highly-regarded “FiRe” Field Recorder App for the iPhone. “We already rely on iZotope’s expertise and audio DSP for our Mac OS X line of products, so it was natural for us to work with iZotope to bring high quality audio processing to the iPhone,” explains Matthew Foust, Co-founder of Audiofile Engineering. Audiofile Engineering is actively developing new iPhone applications as well as providing development services to produce third party iPhone applications.
Marcus Satellite, an animation and electronic music veteran turned App producer, is looking forward to using the iZotope audio effects SDK in his top-100 best selling iPhone App “SmackTalk!” to enhance his users’ experience by adding a wide array of interactive voice effects. “I’ve been using iZotope’s audio DSP technology as VST plug-ins on the desktop, and I’m excited about having that level of quality and interactivity available on the iPhone platform.”
