The user can synthesize sound effects and music effectively from scratch using this program. Musical pitches are constructed using a system of frequency ratios, rather than the conventional equal-temperament notation; however MIDI pitch numbers can be used to specify a base note from which other notes are relative to. The user interface uses a system of cells or boxes, which are placed using drag and drop, and that have associated properties which describe various characteristics of the instrument/sound/chord group etc. This QI variant of the Kangas Sound Editor has its own internal database engine (HSQLDB), unlike the regular Kangas Sound Editor which needs MySQL Server to be separately downloaded and installed. There is a kangaroo theme to this software.
What is new in this release:
- Fix to prevent a dialog 'Kangas Sound Editor QI Install.app is damaged and can't be opened'.
- Changes to new installation sample database.
- Made the extent of Recorded Sound boxes sensitive to the Volume multiplier field in the containing Sequence box.
- Fixed bugs with .WAV sound file handling.
