Ambrosia Software has updated Soundboard for Mac OS X
(”) to version 1.0.3. The
upgrade adds Japanese localization and fixes a bug relating to
registration on Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”).

Like cart machines in broadcast radio studios, Soundboard lets users
map sound effects, audio clips, or musical accompaniment to keys on
the Mac keyboard, triggered with a single tap. When you import audio
into Soundboard, it is converted to Apple Lossless format so playback
will be instant. According to the folks at Ambrosia, 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. You can 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 build custom mashups
from your onboard audio. You can create intros and fades, crop at
will, and apply filters to your audio without fear of losing your
original file.

You can control Soundboard via any MIDI device, and MIDI effects such
as panning and gain are automatically applied to Soundboard’s output.
You can 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.

Soundboard normally costs US$29. However, for a limited time,
registered Sound Byte users may participate in our new “Does your
software Byte? Jump on Board!” program to purchase Soundboard for
$19. Registered WireTap Studio or WireTap Anywhere customers continue
to receive a 25 percent discount when purchasing Soundboard.
