Northern Sounds.... East West and everything in between. Cool place. I\'ve been hearing nothing but good things from my sound developer friends. So, by tomorrow afternoon you\'ll have a Sonic Reality forum in here too. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] That would be technically \"southern\" because we are making sounds down here in the southern tip of the US... Florida. It\'s hot and sunny down here. Samples grow very nicely though.
I\'ll make a proper introduction when the forum is up. I just wanted to say hello because we\'re excited about being here. Also, we have a lot of multi-format libraries (yes, including Giga support) to discuss.
For those of you who don\'t know Sonic Reality, we make sample libraries that are distributed by ILIO. We also have new multiformat \"UFO\" libraries through esoundz.com that use a special technology we created with your resident Chicken (Garth Hjelte, creator of Translator) that allows many format versions of certain SR titles to be installed on your computer such as Kontakt, Battery, HALion, EXS, Reason, Sampletank, Giga, Soundfont and potentially any popular software sampler format that comes out. So you get all of these format options at no extra cost which is nice and flexible for the user.
In addition to that we have Reason refills being released by M Audio this year and a nice selection of virtual instrument plug-ins based around Sampletank (such as Sonic Synth and expansion ROMS). If you want to know more about us then just go to these web sites:
There are even pictures of some of us on esoundz.com (I am the one with the wall of samplers behind me). I go by Squids on the forums (you can see me sometimes on cubase.net and we have a VST plug-in forum we host on K-v-R). But, that is just a nick (oh really?). In reality (npi), I am Dave Kerzner from Sonic Reality. I started the company and do a vast amount of sampling and programming around here. I like to make myself available to talk about samples in general or answer questions about our products. Other programmers who work with SR will try to make themselves available too whenver possible.
Hope to see you in our new forum on Nothern Sounds!
