In their continuing quest to promote the optimum blend of high technology music products and haute cuisine, MV Pro Audio announced the kickoff of a US/Canadian clinic tour showcasing Redmatica Srl’s Compendium Bundle suite of sampled instrument creation, editing, and management tools.
Redmatica, founded in 2003 in Correggio, Italy, was recently the honored recipient of Electronic Musician magazine’s prestigious 2008 Editors Choice Award, in recognition of their Keymap 1.5 software. Included in the Compendium Bundle, Keymap is a powerful Mac application that automates the traditionally painstaking tasks associated with the creation of sample-based instruments—from the detailed editing and looping of samples to the final output of presets.
"When I first saw Keymap in action, I was absolutely floored,” noted MV Pro Audio president Michael Marans. “All I could think of was the months and months of effort it would have saved me when I was creating sampler libraries.”
“Did you say Correggio?”gasped Dino Virella, MV Pro Audio’s executive vice president. “Sample libraries, shmample libraries…Correggio is the historic home of pasta, parmesan, and prosciutto!”
And so, armed with a Mac laptop, a folder of raw samples, and a bucket of steamed clams, Andrea “Gnocci” Gozzi, Redmatica’s founder and technical guru, will hit the road in mid-April with Dino “Mozzarella” Virella, holding public clinics at a variety of retail music stores in Midwestern and Eastern states and Eastern Canada.
The precursor “Redmatica Eats LA” tour, which included visits to a number of prominent music retailers in Southern California, was hugely successful. “Everyone was truly amazed by Andrea’s software,” noted Virella. “But ending the demonstrations with giant helpings of tiramisu and espresso was a mistake. People actually tore Andrea’s clothes trying to keep him from leaving. This time around it’ll be dry biscotti and quick “ciao for now.”
