Presence XT Editor offers quick creation of expressive sound programs in Studio One 3 23/05/16
In response to customer demand for user-created soundsets for the Presence XT sample player found in its Studio One 3 DAW, PreSonus has released Presence XT Editor, a powerful Add-on for Studio One that they say enables quick creation of expressive sound programs that offer deep control and realistic playability. Here's the details directly from Presonus...
A Presence XT Program (or Preset in Studio One) is made of a set of samples organized in zones and layers. Normally, parameter changes on the Presence XT main page affect all sample zones at the same time. With Presence XT Editor, all sound parameters are available per zone, layer, or program, so you can adjust parameters individually for every sample and on all three levels to create subtle or dramatic changes.
You don't have to be a software programmer to create expressive Presence XT instruments and implement powerful performance control. Users can start by simply dragging and dropping in raw samples that are then automatically mapped across the keyboard. Alternatively, users can drag, drop, and modify Kontakt, Giga, or EXS programs.
Flexible layer parameters allow you to define variations, articulations, and key switches with just a few clicks. You can stack samples as velocity layers for dynamic sound-changes; define round-robin variations for natural, realistic retriggering; and assign layer variations to keys for fast, easy switching between articulations. Up to eight assignable knobs and eight assignable buttons can be named and used as performance controls.
Once satisfied, designers can export a compact Sampler file containing all samples, mappings, scripts, and settings. These files can easily be shared with other Studio One users via services such as DropBox or PreSonus Exchange and can be exported with or without password protection, granting the designer control over who can further edit the Sampler file.
