Madison, WI (December 19, 2007)–Sony Creative Software has announced the formation of its Artist Integrated “Quartet” of Sony Sound Series loop libraries, with the release of two new Premium Collection tier titles: Parthenon Huxley’s Six-String Orchestra, and Matt Fink: Rock & Pop Keyboard Essentials.
Artist Integrated library development begins when new music is played over song structures made using existing Artist Integrated catalog titles. Fresh performances are edited and organized into new Artist Integrated logo-bearing titles that each contain 15 flexible song session templates. End users can combine sounds from corresponding sessions across libraries to make new music.
“Music producers have been using our libraries for nearly a decade, but finding great rock titles that work perfectly together has always been a challenge because the rock band approach to making music is so organic in nature,” says Dave Chaimson, VP of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. “The expanding Artist Integrated lineup makes it easier and more fun to make genuine-sounding rock music. Every Artist Integrated title that we release will increase the flexibility of the entire series. The current “Quartet” configuration of libraries actually allows producers to make better-sounding music with unprecedented workflow speed.”
Matt Fink: Rock & Pop Keyboard Essentials is a Premium Collection tier library created by Prince band veteran Matt Fink, who utilized his extensive personal collection of vintage and modern gear to generate 1.2 gigs of content only available on the title.
Created by guitarist and songwriter Parthenon Huxley, Six-String Orchestra contains an assortment of lead and rhythm guitar tracks played through classic, vintage gear that typifies the rock/pop genre.
While Artist Integrated titles are designed to be used with their Artist Integrated counterparts, all titles in the “Quartet” can be used just as one would any conventional sample libraries. Formatted as ACIDized .wav, Sony Sound Series libraries for use within Sony Creative Software’s leading ACID loop-based music creation software, says the manufacturer, and any other programs that support the .wav file format.
