2 November 2023

APG is a French loudspeaker manufacturer and designer of sound reinforcement systems for immersive live sound. Seeing its competitors selling expensive sound spatialization solutions for big productions, APG took up the challenge to develop some affordable software that would allow every artist, sound designer and producer the tools to try their hand at immersive sound and be part of this new exciting world. And by “affordable”, APG went all the way and made it free.

That’s NESS, which stands for New Experience of Sound Spatialization.

Put it on any computer with a low latency sound card, and within minutes you’re mixing live immersive sound.

NESS offers a reliable sound spatialization solution based on established, proven audio algorithms. It works on PC and Mac with any kind of sound card and allows managing up to 16 audio objects on 32 output channels. The software has been optimized to work on scalable configurations, from small home studio setups to big live venues.

If you work with any audio software that handles multitrack projects, you can route all those signals to NESS to render each track in a dedicated position in your room.

You can configure your loudspeaker setups directly in the software or work with headphones thanks to its binaural engine.

Unlock your creativity with the automation features, create synchronized movements, and realistic spaces with the reverb engine.

NESS comes with some convenient tools:

Plugins to control the audio object’s position from your DAW

A TouchOSC patch for remote control of NESS features.

A full OSC API for interactive sound art installations, or synchronization with light and video.

Resources such as tutorials, demo projects and documentation are also available online: https://ness-apg.com/
