Sound Particles introduces SkyDust 3D, The First Synthesizer with Full 3D Audio Support

Sound Particles has introduced SkyDust 3D, a new virtual instrument with full 3D audio support.

SkyDust 3D lets you incorporate spatial effects into your patches, using the Spatial Sequencer, Spatial Envelope Generators, Spatial LFOs and more. For example, you could use MIDI aftertouch to control 3D position, use EGs to control the movement of each note, use an LFO to change the elevation of notes or create an arpeggio that moves through space.

SkyDust 3D Overview:

“Spatial audio has been in the domain of mixing for a long time,” notes Nuno Fonseca, Sound Particles Founder & CEO. “Now, SkyDust 3D brings spatial audio into the domain of the musician.”

SkyDust 3D supports more than 30 output formats, including stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 7.1.2 (Dolby Atmos), 9.1.6, Ambisonics (up to 6th order), Binaural (3D sound over headphones), among many others.


  • Oscillators: 8 oscillators, each with a 3D position per note, to obtain fantastic sounds.
  • Spatial: Use EGs, LFOs or movement modifiers, with the fully integrated 3D engine, to create unbelievable spatial effects.
  • Presets: Easy-to-use presets, with the power and flexibility of sub-presets.
  • Arpeggiator: A modern approach to the Arpeggiator and Sequencer.
  • Frequency Modulation: Add FM synthesis and create amazing sounds.
  • Filter: Subtractive synthesis, with independent filters, to obtain wonderful results.
  • Pitch: Use pitch effects to create unique sounds.
  • Effects/Mix: A Mixer and audio effects that help you shape the sound.
  • Matrix: The maximum flexibility for the ultimate power – anything is possible.
  • Randomizer: Create endless presets if you are looking for “happy accidents”.

SkyDust 3D is available now with an intro price of $299 for the spatial version and $149 for the stereo-only version
