Manytone has announced the release of ManyOne, is a fully-featured, high-quality, sample player plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X that comes with a wide range of sounds intended to form the foundation of every musician's day to day musical needs.
The sounds come in four categories: electric pianos, ensembles, organs, and waveforms (which include classic analog waves). The sounds are all selectable from the easy-to-use sound browser. Most of the sounds were sampled from classic analog hardware.
The waveforms can be used as they come or some of the synthesis tools can be applied through the simple interface to tweak the sounds. For speed in programming, there is a Sound Wizard with a range of preset synthesizer settings for all purposes.
This extensive range of sounds has then been coupled with an efficient low CPU sample playback engine with a powerful FX rack. The FX rack includes ten units: Tremolo; Overdrive; Mono Phaser; Stereo Phaser; Dual Chorus; Quad Chorus; Mono Flanger; Stereo Flange; Echo (with three varieties—warm, crush and light); and an Output Limiter. Like the Sound Wizard, there is an FX Wizard with a range of preset FX settings.
All Manytone users get access to a wide range of additional sounds (which will load into ManyOne) in the Manytone FreeZone. Users can also load their own samples (which can be easily mapped using the free ManyMapper utility), and in addition, Wusik and Dash soundsets will show up in the browser.
ManyOne is available for the special introductory price of $37.95. This introductory price is available until 15th January 2007 when the long term price of $49.95 will be adopted. ManyOne is available to ManyGuitar users for a special cross-grade price of $29.95. ManyOne is available in Windows VSTi format and Mac OS X AU and VSTi formats (Universal Binary). One license covers both formats.
