Sonic Reality has announced a new expandable studio instrument plug-in called the "Infinite Player", which is powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt Player. This new powerhouse plug-in and stand-alone music software is made to be infinitely expandable with fresh new sample content from Sonic Reality including the highly anticipated Studio ProFiles series multi-track drum kit and groove collections. Special bundles of libraries with the Infinite Player will be made available through Sonic Reality dealers world-wide as well as ala carte instant downloads on the new www.downloadablesoundz.com.
Sonic Reality's Infinite Player is able to read a wide range of sounds whether it's the sounds of famous drummers's kits and grooves from the Studio ProFiles Drum Masters series or a new range of Infinite Instruments. It will also read the sounds of Sonic Reality's "Sonik Capsule" series with special Kontakt-only versions now called "Kapsules". New Kapsule collections, Studio ProFiles libraries and other sample products are being developed to further expand the Infinite Player from Sonic Reality and its development partners. For the initial launch there will be over 50 gigabytes of material available to customize your own studio instrument sound station.
"Since we've been capturing so many different studio instrument sounds it made sense to give them a home in a plug-in that could handle both streaming from disc and the synchronization of multi-channel grooves that could be mapped across the keyboard" says Dave Kerzner, CEO and found of Sonic Reality. "While we still love to make sounds for every popular sampler and will continue to do so, this expandable virtual instrument offers a nice outlet for high end material that takes advantage of this popular engine's technology."
Powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player, the Infinite Player features high resolution 24 bit fidelity, virtually unlimited polyphony, up to 64-part multi-timbrality, advanced surround capabilities and integrated effects including convolution and master effects. The Infinite Player also has the unique ability to read Sonic Reality's proprietary multi-channel Rex 2 files which are mapped across the keyboard in Kontakt's Beat Mode which offers for the first time real audio drum grooves with both the ability to lock to your host's tempo and also the ability to mix the discrete mics of the recorded drums. Users of Kontakt software can also read Infinite Player libraries inside full Kontakt and the individual rex grooves can also be read by any software that supports Rex 2 files such as ProTools, Cubase, Logic, Stylus RMX, Reason, Project 5 and more.

The Infinite Player will be available world-wide as a download before the end of November from www.esoundz.com and it can be purchased in combination with Sonic Reality sound collections such as the Studio ProFiles Drum Masters Silver, Gold and Platinum packages and others at a variety of prices ranging from $199 to $995.
