The Music and Sound Design Platform (MSDP) is a free and open-source platform for Multimedia Synthesis, Design, and Performance.
The Music and Sound Design Platform (MSDP) is a free and open-source platform for Multimedia Synthesis, Design, and Performance. The tools included in this software provide everything you need to make audio and video creations that are complex, exciting and exploratory, and gives you an interface designed for the stage – whether that stage is a concert hall, a bar, or a bedroom. MSDP is easy to get into – you’ll be making exciting sonic and visual exlorations in seconds – and the software is a thrill to master with an absolute wealth of possibilities for what you can create. We’ve got a getting started video series alongside more involved tutorials on YouTube that will guide you through the use of the software, and an online manual with plenty of information to help you dig deeper.
Built around a paradigm that emulates the non-linear design of guitar pedal boards, MSDP includes over 100 modules that can be mixed and matched in any combination across any number of boards. MSDP 2.0 features 61 Audio tools, 24 Video tools, and 17 Data tools, each of which is designed to communicate with the others. Beautiful and powerful instruments can be dropped in next to audio file manipulators and wild signal-processing effects. Video synthesis and web cam feeds can be fed through filters and can easily be controlled with audio signals or your favorite MIDI controller. Video and Audio modules can sit side-by-side and can interact with each other in exciting and dynamic ways! MSDP is an ideal platform for experimental multimedia and intermedia artists, VJs, laptop musicians and orchestras, electroacoustic composers, musicians looking for new sonic possibilities for their instruments, and anyone interested in blurring the lines between traditional modes of art making and new, forward-looking creative spaces.
