Redmatica has announced that it is presenting the 64-bit version of its creative sampling suite, Compendium Pro Bundle 2.1 at the Winter NAMM show, booth 6328 Hall A. The new set of applications includes Keymap Pro 2.1, AutoSampler 2.1 and ProManager 3.1. The Compendium Pro Bundle 2.1 will be available in February 2010 with the price set at $489.95 / €379.95. It is a free update for current Compendium Pro Bundle 2.0 users.
Keymap Pro 2.1 is the direct 64-bit evolution of Redmatica's Keymap 1.5 sampled instruments editor, and extends its file support to all the major instrument formats on the market, including Apple EXS24, Native Instrument Kontakt, Digidesign Structure and Propellerheads Reason NNXT. Keymap Pro 2.1 incorporates a massive amount features, including multiple playback personalities to match each corresponding instrument format, integrated direct multichannel recording (sampling) also from networked computers with autostart/stop/cut/map/loop, new DSP tools for looping the unloopable, new resynthesis algorithms for non-harmonic samples and loops, integrated AutoSampling features with AutoSampling Live mode for effortless interactive recording from sound sources, SoundDesign layers for using AudioUnit plugins as synthesis blocks in the playback chain, massively multimode envelopes, dimensional panning, continuous background rendering, and a Core Animation based visual interface. Version 2.1 adds virtually unlimited 64-bit memory space support, support for 64-bit AudioUnit plugins, faster overall performance, and new remapping features, including the ability to build conversion maps and perform drum remapping from one layout to another with a single click.
AutoSampler 2.1 takes the original tool for automatically sampling hardware and software synths to 64-bit by presenting a new user interface and extending instrument creation format support to Redmatica Keymap, Apple EXS24, Native Instrument Kontakt, Digidesign Structure and Propellerheads Reason NNXT. It also offers a built-in mapping editor to build custom templates, a simplified view mode, autolooping algorithms taken directly from Keymap Pro 2.1, multichannel autosampling of up to 8 channels from local audio devices or networked computers, Key Switch autosampling, Round Robin autosampling, and much faster operations.
ProManager 3.1 is the completely redesigned next generation 64-bit version of the ExsManager 2 sampled library manager application. It now handles Redmatica Keymap, Apple EXS24, Native Instrument Kontakt, Digidesign Structure and Propellerheads Reason NNXT instrument formats simultaneously. The intuitive goal-based interface makes it easy to relink instruments to samples for quick loading, manage duplicate and unused files, or to completely reorganize the sample libraries. ProManager also offers browsing capabilities for both instruments and samples, an integrated streaming sample viewer, metadata tagging, and search and synchronization over the network. The new 64-bit support allows management of sample libraries of virtually unlimited size.
"Revolutionary Evolution was the concept behind the entire development of the Compendium Pro Bundle 2.1," said Andrea Gozzi, Founder and Technical Director of Redmatica. "We didn't just want to introduce a killer set of new features, but also offer new ways to use already existing technologies and make full use of the hardware available in modern computers. We are tremendously excited about going to 64bit, as it allows our applications to make full use of modern computer hardware, and brings what was already a world class set of creative sampling applications to another level."
OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard required for 64 bit support. OS X 10.5 or OS X 10.6 required for 32 bit support.
