“I have found no other program quite like this.. and the inbuilt potential of simultaneous images, animation, and sound.” – Paul Fletcher
The ArtMatic Creative ToolboX (CTX) is a graphics and sound engine plus a unique set of integrated applications for procedurally creating still images, motion graphics, video special effects, animation, sound design, and music: Designer, Voyager, and Explorer.
Modular synthesizer for 2D and 3D graphics, video animation, and audio creations. Edit 3D objects placed within Voyager worlds.
Procedural 3D renderer for ArtMatic files and compositions creating landscapes, crafts, and creatures.
Explore ArtMatic modular system presets by adjusting their parameters and create abstract art, process images and video.

Designer has hundreds of graphics and mathematical modules that you can link together in countless ways to generate still images and animations at any resolution also sounds of limitless complexity. Designer can be seen as a Modular synthesizer capable of almost anything that is algorithmically and mathematically possible. Use it to create all kinds of graphics: decorative images, background textures, video effects, fractals, fine art, motion graphics, and much more. You can even use it to process photos and videos.
Voyager renders ArtMatic 3D objects and generates landscapes from 2D images. It has a built-in environment for controlling clouds, sun position, haze, sea level for landscape creation. With the no-planet mode you can also render cosmic scenes, with multiple lights, including multiple suns. The Voyager camera let’s you animate all the environmental parameters within keyframes and create fly thoughts of your worlds. Place and animate any ArtMatic 3D objects and use Designer to adjust their components parameters.
The “Live Link” in Designer communicates parameter changes to Voyager when both are running. This allows for editing complex models in Designer while watching a preview rendered by Voyager. Be sure to check out the ArtMatic videos by subscribing to our YouTube channel.
Explorer is an entry-level “Designer Lite” application that allows you to rapidly adjust ArtMatic files to create content. Use it to make abstract art, or modify images and video using the parameters of ArtMatic presets. Upgrade to Designer to create your own custom presets.
“As an electronic ambient musician, I mainly use ArtMatic (Designer+Voyager) for album artwork and videos. Modular synthesis – be it Eurorack for music or ArtMatic for graphics – is a way of exploring the fundamental building blocks of reality and use that knowledge to create complete alternate synthetic worlds that somehow feel organic and authentic. ArtMatic is a magical and unique piece of software that feels familiar with my modular workflow and blends natural with my electronic music!” – Wim Daans – Pulse Mandala
