posted 25 Jan 2016, 14:48 by Ash Foster   [ updated 25 Jan 2016, 14:58 ]

Symphobia Series 2016 Edition now supports the Native Kontrol Standard, bringing :-
  • Full integration with Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol and Maschine hardware and software. 
  • Light Guide, a dedicated light above each key, to show you what's where on the keyboard: blue for orchestra, yellow for percussion, red for keyswitches, and so on, & Symphobia's main controls are directly available from Komplete Kontrol as well. 
  • Full integration into the NI Browser, which means you can access all instruments in Maschine, control Symphobia's most important parameters and search for instruments using tags.

Supercharge your Beat(ropolis)

Over at pluginguru.com Skippy is working on a drum library, and back at Xmas he released a little teaser set of samples to wet the appetite. Tasty stuff indeed, so I threw it all into Geist along with Skippy's Beatropolis and (after finally getting round to editing it down) the result was this...

101's delayed pending DP8

Apologies to anyone waiting on new DP101 vids, I figured it would be best to continue them using DP8 for GUI consistency if nothing else, but I haven't got my hands on it yet. Not have I had much time either come to think of it! Thanks however to all who've sent me feedback, much appreciated, and there will be more forthcoming in due course.

10 years of fstaudio

It's only just occurred to me, but this year does in fact mark our 10th year of existence. Strange to think about it really, I only noticed when glancing at the date on some old project files. Now I feel old, well, older than usual that is. So to all those who've stopped by over the years, colleagues & friends, a big thank you from everyone here. Who'd have thought it eh?
