Seer Systems has introduced the first four sets of Seer Sound voices to support Reality and SurReal synthesizer software. In addition to added extra functionality to those programs, Seer Sounds can stand alone and be played even without Reality or SurReal.
"It's a basic fact that good synths need good sounds and quality sounds help support buyers of our SurReal and Reality software synthesizers," stated David Roach, VP Operations at Seer Systems.
Unlike other sound software available, the Seer Sounds' CDs include a version of SurReal that allows the sounds to be played using most Windows/Pentium computers. So the buyer gets immediate gratification without SurReal or Reality to play these sounds live. SurReal adds the capabilities of easy edit, MIDI set up and sequence player and the ability to combine the sounds with other voices. When used with Reality, Seer Sounds are fully editable in any of five synthesis formats (sampling, FM, physical modeling, analog and modal).
While many sets of SeerSounds will be introduced throughout 1999, the initial four CDs include a disk of Piano samples, Synthetic Sounds from Italy's Sound Burst, and two sets of sample based sounds from Sonic Implants of Boston, MA.
Suggested retail price is $69 for each package, which will be available in Fall, 1999.
