Cakewalk has announced the release of two new Expansion Packs, one each for Rapture and Dimension Pro.
Biolabs Volume 1 is a new Rapture Expansion Pack containing 250 programs programmed by Biomechanoid. The Expansion Pack includes a 230 MB sample library hand selected by BiolabsAudio for use with Rapture's sfz Expression Engine. All of the sounds have been crafted to take advantage of all of Rapture's advanced features. Biolabs Volume 1 was designed to focus on inspiring new sounds for use with any composition. This is the first Cakewalk Expansion Pack to be released since the free Rapture 1.1 update. This Expansion Pack utilizes all of the new features; filters, DSP routings, DSP transforms, and step sequencer features of Rapture 1.1.
Digital Sound Factory Volume 1 is a new Dimension Pro Expansion Pack that highlights a completely new Grand Piano. The new expansion pack includes over 200 new presets programmed by sound designer Timothy Swartz. This set packs 520MB of new content professionally recorded and engineered from a finely crafted Yamaha Conservatory Grand Piano. Multiple velocities of pedal up, pedal down, and key up were recorded to preserve the acoustic harmonic content, resulting in unmatched realism and playability. The Digital Sound Factory Volume 1 set also expands upon Dimension Pro's factory set of Orchestral, Layers, Splits, Electric Pianos, Basses and more. These new presets layer the new piano samples for the ultimate Multi-Timbral experience.
The Biolabs Volume 1 expansion pack for Rapture and the Digital Sound Factory Volume 1 expansion pack for Dimension Pro are available to registered Rapture and Dimension Pro customers direct from the Cakewalk online store for $59 / €56 / £35.
