Sunics develops revolutionary signal processing technology.
We provide professional services, tailored solutions and innovative products employing our algorithms on cyclic data, signals and time-series within a wide range of applications, including:
- DSP tools and products in music production, digital media and arts
- conditiong monitoring and trend analysis in health, science and technology
- enhancement, assessment, categorisation and visualisation of any cyclic data.
It is our mission to deliver intuitive, smart and powerful signal processing technology.

Today we had a nice break-through. Our in-house prototype just produced the first real-time animation of evolving sound timbres ever.
We played a single note on a Minimoog synthesiser and slowly changed its settings, therefore changing the timbre of the note played. At the same time, we also let our prototype repeatedly transform the current timbre data of the sound to an image, creating an animation that shows the current timbre in sync with the sound playing at the time. As the timbre changes over time, the visual pattern representing the timbre changes accordingly.
The pixels you see are the colour-coded values of the soundwave, this is very different to the somewhat random or "interpreted" sound visualisations you may know from media players. Here, what you see is what you hear.
Signal Modeling in the Time-Phase Domain
Signals are traditionally modelled in the time domain or in the time-frequency domain. We've developed a fundamentally new approach that operates in the time-phase domain. Just like existing models this introduces an entirely new class of processing methods and algorithms applicable to signal analysis, modification and synthesis.
