Studio is 15 years old now
Yes. It's a long time… when we started,
there were no soft-samplers in existence. We worked
on hardware sampler cards which carried a very limited
Gravis Ultrasound, Turtle Beach Maui, Tropez, Pinnacle, Terratec EWS64… does anyone remember them at all?
These samplers educated us, and we have learned a lot of things - for example how to optimize our libraries and how to fit a sampled instrument into 4, 8 or 32 MB of RAM. They also taught us that quality always prevails over quantity.
Since then the world of sampling has dramatically changed. The hardware samplers slowly but surely disappeared. Now we use software samplers - they provide us with practically unlimited capacity, and carry so many features that we have never been able to imagine before. We have terabytes of libraries - no limits.
But we never forget where we are coming from and we remain committed to our fundamental value: quality must win over quantity.
OK, that's all for pathos...

advanced scripting technology we were able to create
a software instrument that sounds and behaves as a
We have also made some improvements on reasonbanks,
most of which are imperceptible, but believe us:
we have devoted a lot of work to it. You can notice

We hope you like it.

30 April 2010
The commerce of CD and DVD versions of our products (that need physical shipping) will be discontinued from 3 May 2010.
Thanks to the general use of broadband internet the disk versions have become obsolete in the past few years.
So we will only distribute our refills in downloadable format , and we believe this is the most comfortable option for all of us.
New bundled packs - you can save 25%
In addition to the BIG BUNDLE, we created two more bundled packages, as we think these refills belong together and somehow they complement well each other.
Waldorf Bundle: ORANGE3 + LEMON
The ultimate package for Waldorf fans. Three Waldorf synths in one pack, based on 3.7 GB sample source. You get also the Keyboard Loop player as a bonus.
Eric's Bundle: Analog Night + Quadrasynth Story
