Sound Particles is a CGI-like software for Sound Design, capable of using particle systems to generate thousands of sounds in a virtual 3D world.
Particle Systems are a common tool used in computer graphics and VFX to create fuzzy/shapeless objects like fire, rain, dust or smoke. Instead of animating all individual points (water drops, grains of dust or smoke), the user creates a particle system, an entity that is responsible for the creation and management of thousands of small objects. Sound Particles uses the same concept, but for audio: each particle represents a sound source (instead of a 3D object) and a virtual microphone captures the virtual sound of the particles (instead of the virtual CGI camera).
