AWE Designer is a Windows-based, graphical IDE for the AWE Core™ embedded processing engine.  AWE Designer is used to easily design, debug, and tune audio processing flows in real time. Unlike other graphical tools, Audio Weaver does not generate code; instead, it generates run-time configurations for the data-driven AWE Core.  Using a palette of over 400 optimized processing modules, complex audio processing chains can be quickly designed, run, profiled and tuned on hardware without writing any DSP software.

Audio Weaver Editions

Audio Weaver comes in three different editions, STMicro Edition, Standard Edition, and Pro Edition. STMicro and Standard Editions run as stand-alone applications, while (Pro) runs as an application launched from MATLAB.
