So if you've been waiting for some new sounds to add to your Reason or SampleTank set ups there's some cool stuff coming for you.
Happy Holidays from eSoundz and SR!

Are the sr sampletank instruments here written for the new upcoming sampletank 3 as well, do they offer anything new in terms of script's for the s3 release? thanks
Upcoming? I think they are aiming to release it when Windows 12 is released.

I was just about so post a message...WTF is going on???!!!! SampleTank has gone mobile and Reason is a full service recording/production monster. I would love an Amplitube rack extension!!!!!! I'm hoping we see something this week, Squids. It's been a llllllllllllllllooooooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggggg time since you guys came out with some new SampleTank and REason stuff.

SampleTank 2.5 (yes we're still going to support it with new libraries until ST3 is released and they will be upward compatible - all of our sounds are).
Kontakt (full version) - for the first time in years we're going to be releasing libraries in straight Kontakt sampler format as opposed to the Infinite Player versions. There are a number of reasons for this - one of them being that we can come out with products faster and more under our own control (also easier to update etc.). We'll still keep supporting the Infinite Player for awhile but we urge all Infinite Player customers to upgrade to full Kontakt anyway... it's a great sampler to have and you don't want to miss out on any Kontakt-only libraries we do.
Reason 6 and beyond - LOTS and LOTS of new refills coming this year!!!!!! More than you can handle.

And I was wondering just today about the new libs! When will you be releasing the new stuff? Any hints on content? (kontent?)
I'm ready and waiting for the new coolness!

So, while that's a mystery for the moment I do have some hints at things I've already hinted at coming and this is the year we'll see them. A Nick Davis "Farm Sessions" library featuring Tony Banks' keyboards sampled, Mike Rutherford's guitars and basses (some of them anyway) sampled and drums in the stone room at Genesis' studio "The Farm" recorded and drum specs in the style of Phil Collins (and we sampled one of his kits that he used in the early 80's too). There's the Alan Parsons Sample Project which will be officially announced very soon as well as products with Keith Emerson, Hugh Padgham, Carmine and Vinny Appice, Guy Pratt, Durga and Lorelei McBroom (of Pink Floyd) and all sorts of interesting artist and/or producer themed libraries coming out in formats like SampleTank, Kontakt, Reason, EXS and more. Which one's first and when I can't answer yet but I can tell you that we'll start to see new products rolling out THIS month and it could be fairly steady for the rest of the year.
