AES: Digidesign Go Soft

SoftSampleCell brings host CPU into play      13/05/01
Years ago, Digidesign made SampleCell – a NUBUS card (prehistoric mac card format) sampler with 8 outputs. Then came SampleCell II: the 32-voice, 32MB RAM, PCI based sample playback card with 8 outs. This card integrated into the ProTools TDM architecture allowing you to apply the DSP power of your TDM system to it’s outputs. Now comes SoftSampleCell, a software only version that uses the power of the host computer, allowing access to up to 128Mb of sample RAM (if you have it) and 64 voices. The software integrates into fully blown ProTools 5.1 TDM rigs or systems running DIGI001 hardware (giving up to 16 outputs with DirectConnect) It will also integrate into Emagic’s Logic software, allowing you to process the outputs with any number of VST plug-ins - assuming you have DIGI hardware. Further enhancements over the hardware SampleCell include:
  • 4-pole resonant filter
  • 24-bit samples
  • Phase coherent stereo samples ( Hardware SampleCell is not)
  • Multi-file format as well as access to the huge SampleCell libraries (no Akai?). Shipping end of may with a price of around $300.
  • SampleCell info @ Sonic Studio
