Anaheim, CA (April 14, 2004)–Ultimate Sound Bank recently introduced the new “X-Treme FX,” a fast, flexible sound design tool. A virtual instrument that allows users to easily create and trigger complex sound effects, Foleys and atmospheric sounds, X-Treme FX was engineered from the ground up as a tool to create effects for video, CD-ROM, games, music and broadcast programs. X-Treme FX will be distributed in North America by ILIO Entertainments, and is currently shipping.
With a 3-Gigabyte library delivering thousands of creative, readily-accessible sound effects, X-Treme FX is faster and more affordable than traditional, CD-based soundbanks. Each sound file contained within the collection is divided into an intuitive category, such as Science Fiction, Drones & Sub, Natural Sounds, Urban Sounds, Foleys and Musical Effects. In addition, X-Treme FX includes a number of preset sound “scenes” which automatically load up an ensemble of related sounds, to use for live mixing or creating a virtual soundscape. Finally, X-Treme FX features the fastest loading times in its category, providing minimal access times for even the most complex scenes and allowing users to begin experimenting with sound designs within seconds.
The USB’s UVI Engine, which powers X-Treme FX, provides uncompromising sound quality throughout the plug-in. The library’s interface places all sound shaping controls in a single window for maximum ease of use, and offers premium quality sound design tools that allow users twist and reshape each sound to fit their projects.
“X-Treme Sound FX is a high-quality, easy to use tool that will prove extremely useful in any situation where sound effects are required,” said Mark Hiskey, principal of ILIO. “We invite all of our customers to get some hands-on experience with this innovative product at Winter NAMM 2004.”
X-Treme FX is available for VST, RTAS, AudioUnits, MAS, Dxi and MachFive, and is compatible with PC, Mac OSX and OS9.
