Audio Design Desk has released a free version of its real-time editing tool add.app for sound effects (macOS only), which was launched 4 months ago.
The new free Audio Design Desk Create app allows users to use a library of over 2,500 sound effects created by the same team that created the effects for "Spider-Man" and "The Avengers".

What makes Audio Design Desk so special?
The Audio Design Desk App was created by professional sound effect producers specifically to meet their requirements and allows extremely fast real-time editing of sound effects (SFX) in their own timeline using a new intuitive operating concept. You never leave the timeline to search for specific sounds: in a separate area you can search for specific sounds from the 20,000-sample library.
The highlight is the sync point defined for each sample and a number of characteristics according to which the sounds can be filtered. The selected sound effect is then assigned a key that can be used to insert it into the timeline while the video is playing.
This allows you to insert different sounds at exactly the right place in the Timeline while the video is playing (at full or slow speed) with a single keystroke. The individual SFX are equipped with metadata such as the Sync Point, which allows the program to recognize where exactly the sample should be placed for the right sound impression.
For example, the sound of a clash of swords is built in such a way that the meeting of two swords is heard exactly when the blades cross in the picture. Audio Design Desk is used like an instrument. This saves the time normally needed to synchronize the sounds with the image in SFX editing - the beginning of a sample is rarely the point that should be in sync.
Another unique feature is the ability to automatically replace sound effects with alternative (or completely different) ones. Audio Design Desk works with the most popular editing programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, and Avid Media Composer.
So if you do your own sound effects dubbing, don&t miss the chance to try out Audio Design Desk&s very special operating concept with the free version.
