SonicBirth is an AudioUnit designing application.
The first in its category, it allows users to build
their own AudioUnit plugins, either by working with
existing circuits or by creating circuits completely
from scratch. SonicBirth is also a free AudioUnits
package, as it comes bundled with a set of plugins
designed for standalone use as plugins as well as
pre-constructed circuits to modify or build upon for
