Digidesign Structure professional software sampler is now available 03/07/07
Following a very successful public beta program, Digidesign has announced that its highly anticipated Structure professional sampler workstation is now shipping. Structure is the latest RTAS virtual instrument plug-in developed by the Advanced Instrument Research (A.I.R.) group.
Structure ships with an impressive 128-level multitimbral universal sound engine, an integrated multi-effects processing engine including convolution reverb, and support for an unlimited number of nestable patches and up to 8-channel interleaved samples. Structure features 20 GB worth of comprehensive, premium factory sound libraries from EastWest and A.I.R., including Quantum Leap Orchestral Elements.
Also included is a 30-day trial of Goliath â€” Structure Edition, EastWestâ€™s 40 GB professional sound library.
Structure also allows users to work with their existing sound libraries by providing support for importing SampleCell, EXS24, and Kontakt 1 and 2 sample libraries although use of encrypted third-party sample libraries not supported.
Optimized exclusively for Pro Tools, Structure directly integrates with the Pro Tools audio engine allowing users to drag and drop Pro Tools regions directly into Structure, and to control multiple facets of the sampler with a Digidesign control surface (or a MIDI controller). Digidesign say that its fully resizable built-in Sample Editor enables fast and easy waveform editing and sample mapping while a powerful database and integrated file browser make it easy for users to find and load any sample. Pricing and Availability:
Structure can be purchased at authorized Digidesign dealers and on the DigiStore for $499 MSRP (USD).
For a limited time, Digidesign is offering owners of the older Soft SampleCell workstation an opportunity to purchase Structure at a special upgrade price of $199 USD. More information:
