Here’s what Galbanum have to say about the concept behind sample line:
“Modern electronic and urban music production is highly dependent on technical sound-design elements to infuse novelty and uniqueness into the music of today and tomorrow. Modish sound-design elements define style and are what makes a given project in-the-now. A posh groove and a stupendous shock-and-awe campaign of information-age sonic non-conformities are prerequisite to success in today's market.
The Abstraction Sample Line is designed to advance these bleeding-edge sound-design elements and make them effortlessly accessible without requiring a PhD in rocket science or esoteric digital signal processing. To further accomplish this goal and stay perpetually in-the-now, Abstraction Sample Line products are available for instant direct download from Galbanum's web-store. This ensures that the contents stay fresh and stylistically up-to-date, and allows the product line to be regularly updated with inexpensive additions and expansions. Physical distribution is also planned for early 2008.
Pricing and Availability:
Abstraction 01 is available for direct download and is priced at $29.95 from now until December 31. Following this 30 day introductory offer, the standard price of $39.95 will take effect. More information:
