System Requirements and Configuration

Mac Universal Binary. Mac PPC compatible – G4 or more, Mac Intel.


  1. Go to the Forumnet web page and click on the corresponding download link. The AudioSculpt .dmg volume will appear on your desktop once download is completed.

  2. Double click on the volume that contains the AS folder if it doesn't open automatically. Drop the directory in the desired location – possibly in the Applications folder.

Installed Items

The Audiosculpt folder contains the application launcher, as well as a number of directories dedicated to additional software, settings, audio material, documentation, analysis and other files.

Applications and Utilities
  • AS Application Launcher
  • Kernels : SuperVP and Pm2 kernels, Install Commandline Tools.
  • SDIF Utilities : a set of tools to convert and inspect SDIF analysis files – see also: Among these, SDIFConverter can convert some types of SDIF files to text files. This can be useful to import sound analysis data into applications that don't support the SDIF standard, such as CSound.

Documentation : Audiosculpt and SVP pdf and html documentation and release notes.

Audio Material

  • Annotation : sonogram MIDI annotations (.mid or .sdif ).
  • ChordSeqs : chord sequence analysis files (.cs.sdif).

Settings and Treatments
  • Settings : contains the text files presets of audiosculpt, also dedicated to user settings (.txt).

  • Temp : temporary files represent parametric treatments values (.txt). They are stored in this folder automatically at a session. These files can be edited as well.

Setting Default Folders

Uninstallation and Update


Select the items you wish to uninstall and drop them in the trash.
