SNAMM06: M-Audio Expands ProSessions Sample Library

Four new Producer and Premium Instruments lines: Orchestral Percussion, Orchestral Woodwinds, Synth Bass and Premium Classical Guitar      15/07/06
M-Audio has introduced the latest additions to the ProSessions Producer and Premium Instruments lines. Developed by SONiVOX (formerly Sonic Implants), the titles in the Producer series are comprehensive libraries of multi-format ensembles, while the Premium Instruments line explores the full depth of a single instrument or section. All ProSessions Producer and Premium Instruments titles offer support for EXS24, HALion, Kontakt, MachFive and Reason's NN-XT formats.
ProSessions Producer Orchestral Percussion
With this library, users can construct a custom percussion section based on a wide variety of orchestral percussion instruments and articulations. Included in this selection are bass drum hits, rolls, 26� and 29� timpani, soft mallet tom hits, gong mallet hits, as well as a broad palette of cymbals, hand percussion instruments and more. ProSessions Producer Orchestral Woodwinds
This collection features ensemble woodwind samples of oboes, flutes, piccolos, clarinets and bassoons. Each individual section is comprised of multi-velocity legato (with vibrato) and staccato patches with additional ensemble programming that layers all sections across the keyboard, creating useful woodwind ‘sketch pads.’
ProSessions Producer Synth Bass
The ultimate synth bass sample library, this volume features 48 bass sounds recorded from a variety of analog and digital bass synthesizers. Synth Bass includes everything from clean square and saw sounds to a variety of hardcore and far-out bass sounds. Each sound comes preprogrammed with MIDI continuous controllers that are set to control envelope filters, filter frequency and resonance.
ProSessions Premium Instruments Premium Classical Guitar
Premium Classical Guitar gives users access to a meticulously sampled original Ramirez 1A classical acoustic guitar, including muted strings, harmonics, hammer-ons and more.
Adam Castillo, marketing director at M-Audio told us, “The ProSessions Producer and ProSessions Premium Instruments lines offer so much more than the average sample library. In addition of offering top-shelf content from SONiVOX, each of the titles is fully compatible with the most popular software sample formats so these same titles can be used with a variety of software samplers and instruments.�
