Digidesign is now shipping its Structure ($499) professional sampler workstation. Structure is the latest RTAS virtual instrument plug-in developed by the company’s Advanced Instrument Research (A.I.R.) group.
Structure incorporates a multitimbral universal sound engine with 128 levels, an integrated multi-effects processing engine including convolution reverb, and support for an unlimited number of nestable patches and up to 8-channel interleaved samples. Structure features 20 GB worth of factory sound libraries from EastWest and A.I.R., including Quantum Leap Orchestral Elements. Also included is a 30-day trial of Goliath—Structure Edition, EastWest’s 40 GB professional sound library. Structure also supports SampleCell, EXS24, and Kontakt 1 and 2 sample libraries.
Optimized exclusively for Pro Tools, Structure directly integrates with the Pro Tools audio engine, allowing users to drag and drop Pro Tools regions directly into Structure, and to control multiple facets of the sampler with a Digidesign control surface or a MIDI controller. Its fully resizable built-in Sample Editor enables waveform editing and sample mapping. It also includes a database and integrated file browser for loading samples.
For a limited time, Digidesign is offering owners of the older Soft SampleCell workstation an opportunity to purchase Structure at a special upgrade price of $199.
