Ambrosia Software Releases Soundboard
Ambrosia Software, the folk who brought you WireTap, have released Soundboard, a new application for Mac that allows users map sound effects, audio clips, or musical accompaniment to keys on the Mac keyboard, easily triggered with a single tap.
Soundboard answers the needs of podcasters and broadcasters everywhere looking for an elegant way to instantly incorporate sound clips into their live performances, or to quickly and efficiently use onboard audio to create custom musical mashups.
Soundboard’s elegant interface is designed to be used “live,” scaling up visually so you can see your triggers from a distance. When you import audio into Soundboard, it is converted to Apple Lossless format so playback will be instant. This avoids any delay caused by decoding either MP3 or AAC files on the fly.
You’ll be able to find your desired sounds at a glance, and triggering them will quickly become automatic. Triggers can be renamed at will, color-coded, and shuffled around the board to suit your needs. Assign up to 32 sounds per tab, and create as many tabs as you need, and you can share ‘boards with other Soundboard users.
Soundboard’s 32 triggers can also be used to quickly and efficiently build custom mashups from your onboard audio. Combine this easy-to-adapt workspace with the recording power of WireTap Studio – or WireTap Anywhere and your favorite high-end editor – and your creative and recording potential is boundless.
You can control Soundboard via any MIDI device, and MIDI effects such as panning and gain are automatically applied to Soundboard’s output. Have your sound play in its entirety with a tap, or have it run only while holding down your chosen MIDI trigger. With Soundboard, it’s your audio, your way.
Ambrosia Software’s Soundboard is available now for $29. More information on Ambrosia Software Soundboard.
