As a strategic partner of Samplebase, Ilio has launched the Samplebase Web site, which offers downloadable, production-ready loops, phrases, and multisampled instruments.
Samplebase offers a free sample-playback synth engine called Satellite (Mac/Win) that features automated time and pitch control with host tempo sync, syncable LFOs and effects, 16-part multitimbral operation with assignable MIDI channels, 8 audio outputs, 8 Quick Edit knobs for real-time control, Rex file support, and more. Satellite is an AU/VST plug-in that works with most major host platforms and is also available as a standalone application.
The Samplebase Web site features a variety of sounds by well-known music industry talents, such as Kaskade, Catalyst Audio, Peter DiStefano, and Def Jef. It also highlights sounds produced by Ilio and the Vienna Symphonic Library, available in specific packages.
Sounds on Samplebase are arranged into 20 to 200 MB sets called SoundBlocks ($19 to $39 each) that can be loaded directly into Satellite and used in host sequencer and digital audio workstation programs. Sound categories include drums/percussion, guitar/bass, keys, synths, soundscapes/FX, strings, brass/woodwinds, vocals, and ethnic.
