Samplebase.com is “going public”at Winter NAMM 2008.
Presenting at Winter NAMM Show, booth 6724, demonstrators will give visitors a first-hand look at how it works, allowing them to create accounts and walk away with a freshly burned bonus CD of their newly purchased sounds, right from the show floor. They’ll also get to experience Satellite, the free sample-synth player that loads Samplebase “SoundBlocks”, and see the Satellite Pro upgrade that loads REX, Wave, and Acid files and includes a wealth of additional features for $149.
One of the unique characteristics of Samplebase is its growing community of artists, many of whom are both contributors and users. British chart-topping producers and remix wizards Freemasons are among the fans of Samplebase. Says James Wiltshire, one half of the Brighton duo, “Samplebase is one of those perfect internet moments where a great idea gets turned into an excellent reality. Within 15 minutes from downloading everything I had the sounds up and running straight into a new track. You know a website is living up to its hype when you make way for it on your favourites bar.”
Many top-notch artists provide instrument sets and construction kits for download on Samplebase, including Catalyst Audio, Kaskade, Def Jef, Peter DiStefano, Midihead, Heatseekers, Vienna Symphonic Library, ILIO, John “Skippy” Lehmkuhl, and many others. Over 150 SoundBlocks are currently available on Samplebase, and the number continues to grow on a weekly basis.
Samplebase.com is a revolutionary new website dedicated to offering thousands of high quality, downloadable production-ready Loops, Phrases, and Multisampled Instruments that cater to today’s “wired” musician. All of the samples are vetted and approved by Samplebase’s “A&R” department, assuring consistently high levels of musicality and authenticity. The sample-playback synth engines Satellite (free for all Samplebase users) and Satellite Pro run stand-alone on Macs and PCs, or as plug-ins in AU, VST (Universal Binary on Mac) and VST (PC) hosts. The exclusive strategic partner of Samplebase is ILIO, carrying the highest quality virtual instruments, sample libraries, and creative tools for professional musicians.
