    Break through in sample play back technology

    http://www.toontrack.com/news.shtml

    On Thursday the 15th of September Toontrack Music will be releasing
    their update to the SUPERIOR software powering dfh-Superior and
    Superior Custom and Vintage.

    The update, Superior 1.5, features Toontrack Percussive Compression, a
    revolutionary on-the-fly compression/decompression technology that
    helps to keep the sampler memory footprint low at no cost to playback
    quality.

    Also available in the new update is 16 Bit playback, a feature that will
    minimize demand on resources even further, up to a factor 5 in
    combination with TPC. This will be of particular interest to performers
    who do not need pristine quality while tracking their parts but demand
    the best for their final output.

    Toontrack Music plans to keep developing and incorporating TPC
    technology in products to come and claims it a major step in further
    developing revolutionary drumsamplers at all levels.

    It's quite nifty - i can now load the *entire* bleed set for a kit into less than 1 gig of RAM with 16bit mode and TPC on. Eats more CPU, of course, but by being somewhat more selective than "everything on!", it would become possible to get the overall character of the final sound in memory while tracking.

    I'm having trouble understanding what Superior is. (Is it just me, or is their website written by people who don't speak English as their first language?)


    Is Superior a new soft sampler? I couldn't find any mention of it one the three pages at the site.

    More research led me to understand that dfh is the abbreviation for Drums From Hell. Not sure I would use the abbreviation in news releases.

    I agree with Ash, this is not a break through in sample play back technology...it's just marketing PR hype!

    What it is, a useful way of managing a library that is otherwise pretty unmanageable!

    Jake,

    I got the same impression from their site. In doing some research, the Toontrack drum libraries are aimed at people who want ultra-realistic drums, to include many of the hassles. By "hassles", the samples are dry and to properly use the set you need to know how to mix, use effects on each separate part, etc. Geeting a great sound will be an effort, but the payoff is phenomenal.

    I think the Toontrack guys are drummers and this is their idea of a perfect library for e-drummers (drummers that use midi triggers), though it'll work fine under the control of a good sequencer.

    Good stuff.

    Right, so that explains the problems with English then.
