“We knew that once customers got a taste of the sophisticated sounds found in Dimension, it was destined to become an addiction,” commented Rene Ceballos, development lead for Dimension. “This prediction has proven to be the case. Not only, did we hear from Cakewalk’s PC-based customers saying they wanted more, we heard from musicians working on the Mac platform the world-over, that they wanted Dimension too. So, the simultaneous Mac/PC release of Dimension Pro is just part of the natural evolution of this world-class product, and the beginning of a series of instruments that can be used anywhere and everywhere by anyone," added Ceballos.
Additional features of the Dimension Pro include real world samples and powerful synthesis; two DVDs of professional sample content and more than 1,500 sound programs (guitars, grand pianos, basses, synth basses, analog-style leads, pads, atmospheres, electric pianos, orchestral strings, dozens of stellar evolving textures and more); synthesis capabilities; multiple velocity and keyboard switching and crossfading; advanced and unique sample playback techniques, multi-looping, sample switching; and more.
