ProjectSAM releases 2014 Edition Updates for Symphobia 1 and Symphobia 2 + Summer Sale

ProjectSAM has announced the release of the 2014 Edition Updates for Symphobia 1 and Symphobia 2, a free update for all registered Symphobia 1 and 2 users.

ProjectSAM Symphobia

Changes in 2014 Edition Updates

  • Microphone mixing — Symphobia 1.4 allows you to mix the two available microphone sets in realtime. This can be done individually, using the vertical mic faders, or together, using the horizontal cross fade slider. This slider smoothly morphs between a close and a stage mix.
  • Individual control over articulations — Symphobia groups multiple articulations in each instrument file. In previous versions, these articulations could be switched using keyswitches and played one at a time. Symphobia 1.4 allows you to independently toggle and mix articulations.
  • Toggling articulations — Click an articulation name to toggle between activating and deactivating it. This way you can easily combine multiple articulations and perform them together.
  • MIDI toggle keys — You can also use MIDI toggle keys to activate and deactivate articulations.
  • Reset toggles — To reset the articulation toggles to their default state (first one activated, others deactivated) click reset toggles. You can also reset toggles by using the assigned MIDI key.
  • Purging — By default, all articulations are loaded into memory, regardless of whether they are activated or deactivated using the toggles. This way, toggling articulations works instantaneously. To save memory, you can unload articulations.

ProjectSAM has also launched a limited time Summer Sale.
