Editing Sound With Photoshop


You may be used to making music with apps like GarageBand, Logic Pro and Pro Tools. But did you know, that you can use the world’s most popular photo-editing software to manipulate sound? Using a program called Photosounder, John Keston was able to save a piano recording as a bitmap image file. He then loaded it into Photoshop, added some blur and filtering and saved it. The result was an ethereal, church-like sound with his piano distorted to hell and back.

Looks like a really fun way to play around with sound. I wonder if you could use this technique for live sound manipulation a la Eclectic Method. I guess we’ll see as 2009 pushes on.
