Ambrosia Software has updated Soundboard (http://www.ambrosiasw.com/dl/soundboard) for Mac OS X to version 2.0. 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.
The new 2.0.0 version features major functionality upgrades, such as our new Soundpipe technology, which allows users to route audio to other applications (such as GarageBand) for recording. Other features include a totally redesigned one-window user interface, with improvements such as per-effect fader controls, Duck and Pause All controls, and more.
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 is available immediately for US$49. Registered users of version 1.x can upgrade for $19. Soundboard requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
