Physics-based sound synthesis represents a promising paradigm for the design of a veridical and effective continuous feedback in augmented everyday contexts. In this paper, we introduce the Sound Design Toolkit (SDT), a software package available as a complete front-end application, providing a palette of virtual lutheries and foley pits, that can be exploited in sonic interaction design research and education. In particular, the package includes polyphonic features and connectivity to multiple external devices and sensors in order to facilitate the embedding of sonic attributes in interactive artifacts. The present release represents an initial version towards an effective and usable tool for sonic interaction designers.

Abstract

Physics-based sound synthesis represents a promising paradigm for the design of a veridical and effective continuous feedback in augmented everyday contexts. In this paper, we introduce the Sound Design Toolkit (SDT), a software package available as a complete front-end application, providing a palette of virtual lutheries and foley pits, that can be exploited in sonic interaction design research and education. In particular, the package includes polyphonic features and connectivity to multiple external devices and sensors in order to facilitate the embedding of sonic attributes in interactive artifacts. The present release represents an initial version towards an effective and usable tool for sonic interaction designers.
