Superpowered Interactive Audio Features

Advanced Audio Player

The most advanced out-of-the-box audio player unit ever built.

It boasts built-in functions including time-stretching, pitch-shifting, scratching, looping and multi-player sync.

Not to mention built-in resampling (automatic sample rate conversion), cue points and HLS audio streaming. Eliminates need to develop any additional player functionality.

Identical and reliable audio playback across Android, iOS, macOS, tvOS, Linux and Windows.

Decoders

The fastest audio decoder set available to developers: MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, Quicktime wrapped Audio and direct iPod Music Library reading. Also includes metadata parsing and ID3 reading.

All on Android, iOS, macOS, tvOS, Linux and Windows.

Dramatically increases app and device battery life and play time.

FX

Out of the box Echo, Flanger, Gate & Roll, Reverb, Whoosh, Compressor, Clipper and Limiter.

Ready built audio IIR filters include Low-Pass, High-Pass, Low-Shelf, High-Shelf, Bandpass, Notch and Parametric. 3 Band EQ and N-band EQ.

Easily roll-your-own FX and filters by combining existing components, such as a high-pass filter for compressor sidechaining.

Audio I/O

Programming audio I/O is a laborious time-sink. Developers need to know every single OS idiosyncrasy to get glitch-free audio in and out of a system.

With Superpowered Audio IO classes, it only takes a few lines of code and you're done!

Streaming & Encryption

Audio drop-out free HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) for Android, iOS, macOS, tvOS, Linux and Windows.

Including handling of encrypted content, adaptive bitrate switching and live streams.

Music Analysis

Analyzing music or other audio?

The fundamental music analysis technologies such as a BPM Analyzer, Key Detection, Beatgrid Detection, Audio Waveform Visualization, & Filter Bank Analysis are easily deployed.

Spatialization & 3D Audio

Spatialization is notorious for consuming CPU.

With Superpowered, that's no longer an issue.

Object-based 3D Audio Spatializer, Ambisonics B-format & Unity Native Audio Plugin Support are all CPU friendly.

Spatialize much more than game sounds with a spatializer tuned for a certain musicality.
