snapshot of demo
The fluidXtra is an Xtra for Adobe Director which integrates the fluidsynth software sound synthesizer into Director. It gives access to all the features of fluidsynth, and adds a few features, especially the ability to load sound files and sound cast members directly into the synth.
Non-exhausitve feature-list :
The fluidXtra has been developped by Antoine Schmitt as part of the "infiniteCD Author" project managed by Antoine Schmitt and produced by Hyptique, with support from the PRIAM funds from the French government. As it is too much work to maintain this large API and codebase, we have decided to give it for free and open source under the LGPL license. Source code is available in the download section.
The fluidsynth software synthesizer has been designed by Peter Hanappe, and is available under the LGPL licence. It emulates in software the SoundFont 2.01 Specifications designed by Creative Labs (SoundBlaster maker). It is basically a small, fast and robust wavetable synthesizer, with a MIDI-like interface, integrated sequencer and realtime effects. The official page of the fluidsynth synthesizer is here.
