IL Multimedia are announcing:
"The first software sound module which combines a sophisticated sampler/synth engine with high
quality multisampled sounds, into a VST instrument.'
A killer combination
for Cubase, Logic or any VST compatible MIDI sequencer. No other hardware
or software synth/sampler lets the user browse tons of highest-quality
natural and synthesized sounds with one click, select them in a flash, and
have them ready for you to play in a fraction of the usual time. "
As well as 128 note polyphony, 20 DSP effects and 4 dynamically assignable paramters, the package comes with a substantial library of sounds - compiled using IK's 2Pack technology which allows for comression of the sample data. Essentially this allows you to load a 32mb sound into 16MB of RAM (huh?).
