About the DSP Series

Common to all the tools in the series, the workflow is simple and immediate: select a category, a type of sound, and adjust the parameters. Once you have created a sound you like, you can save it as a wave file.

Thanks to our unique procedural audio engine, the sounds are fully customizable to perfectly match your game. Since the tools use advanced synthesis techniques rather than sample playback, if the duration of an animation changes during the development, you can simply regenerate a sound of the right length, without any artifacts or degradation.


A massive advantage of procedural tools is that they can automatically create a huge number of sound variations, which is primordial when working in games to avoid repetitiveness. Furthermore, you can export the sounds (including multiple variations if needed) into a Unity project with a single click! Metadata files will be automatically created with the correct settings and C# scripts can even be generated!

DSP Action

DSP Action generates high-impact sounds. There is everything you need to create high-octane teasers, action-packed games, and thrilling animations, from the sounds of destruction (impacts, crashes, debris…) and fight (punches, gunshots, explosions…) to mechanisms (giant robots, gears, engines…) and powerful synths (screeching sounds, risers, braams…).

The Sketchpad lets you draw your sound effects in real time (optionally synchronized with a video) and interact with generative graphics to trigger new sounds or transform existing ones.

DSP Motion

In DSP Motion, you can select a type of movement (rotation, scaling, transformation…), an audio shader (fire, electricity, machine, animal…) and draw your sound effects in real-time. It is the best tool to easily create evolving textures for animated logos, character animations, visual effects, user interfaces and more.

Like in DSP Action, the position of the mouse and the drawing speed are used to generate sound effects that perfectly matches your motion.
