Samplebase.com has released a new sample player, Satellite Pro. Satellite Pro loads REX, Wave, and Acid files and includes features such as auto-mapping, a sample editor, batch processing, a patch editor with three ADSTR envelopes, an effects module, and more.
Details are available at the SampleBase site.
Along with the Satellite Pro anouncement, Samplebase has introduced three new SoundBlocks.
Peter DiStefano’s famous talent for creating mind-bending guitar sounds is captured in Exopshere-Experimental Guitar ($29), available exclusively for Samplebase.com users. This SoundBlock contains over 100 atmospheric guitar phrases and loops in 80, 100, and 120 BPM that will automatically time-stretch in Satellite or Satellite Pro to match the tempo of the song.
Another new SoundBlock is Katastrophic Kutz-Virtual Vinyl ($29), a collection of royalty-free phrases scratched and decimated by turntablist Diggabeatz. Unlike many scratch libraries, each of the 300 loops and one-shots in Katastrophic Kutz was custom-made for this library, so users don’t have to worry about “uncleared” samples. All phrases and FX used are also included in their original form, so users can combine these samples to create authentic scratch technique.
The latest addition to Samplebase.com includes raw, rugged and relentless drum beats. Catalyst Audio’s Beatdown-Hard Hitting Drums ($29) have been tracked with grimy, vintage gear in a big live room. Many of the 33 live drum loops include fills, and the SoundBlock also contains 72 individual drum hits from the large kit used for the Beatdown loops. As with all Samplebase SoundBlocks, all loops can be easily adjusted to the host tempo using Satellite.
Through November 11, 2007, Satellite Pro is being offered for download at only $99. The regular price after this introductory offer will be $149.
