Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 Crossgrade

Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 Crossgrade

This Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0 drum sampler crossgrade offers registered owners of Toontrack’s EZdrummer an opportunity to save some cash. Superior Drummer 2.0, featuring the first part of “The New York Studio Legacy Series,” is a complete overhaul of the original dfh Superior engine. The Toontrack team made painstakingly sure not to lose any of the sound quality, attention to detail, and musicality of their popular drum sampler. Superior Drummer 2.0 has been redeveloped for optimized use with e-drums with more effective use of sample layers and much improved loading times. It includes custom MIDI played by session drummer Nir Z accessed through its new customized MIDI engine and arranger, EZplayer Pro, and has standalone capacity through Toontrack solo. Premium UK-based software developer Sonalksis has outfitted the Superior 2.0 with a 5-band EQ, high and low pass filter, compressor, gate, and transient designer filters. The new interface is reminiscent of EZdrummer with its simple handling and layout but gives the user layer upon layer of in-depth features to create the ultimate drum track. Superior Drummer 2.0’s samples were recorded by Pat Thrall, Neil Dorfsman, and Nir Z at Hit Factory, Avatar Studios, and Allaire studios, NY. The three have worked with artists as diverse as Meatloaf, Celine Dion, Nick Lachey, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Beyonce, Björk, Kiss, Joss Stone, Genesis, John Mayer, and Chris Cornell.

Pantone huey Pro MEU113

Pantone huey Pro MEU113

It’s all about the color: Color in your photos. Color in your designs. And it all starts with accurate color on your screen. Photographers understand that a color-managed workflow is essential to obtain true color from capture, to edit, to print; but what you see on-screen is only as accurate as your display. Over time, the color performance of monitors changes – phosphors and liquid crystals fade, causing the display to drift into unknown colors. hueyPRO automatically brings back the true colors, so whether you are editing photos to print, sell or share with others, gaming or shopping on-line, you deserve to see the right color on your display. The hueyPRO delivers extensive controls in an affordable, easy-to-use solution designed to calibrate and profile all types of LCD and CRT displays. Each package includes an emission-only colorimeter with ambient measurement capabilities and intuitive software. Designed with the same advanced optical color sensors as the i1Display product family, hueyPRO’s optical sensors provide the same accurate on-screen color that used to only be available to professionals, PLUS automatically measures the ambient light within a room for precision calibration. Even after the calibration process, hueyPRO will observe the light falling on the display and apply your personal preferences for viewing accuracy, any time of day. hueyPRO INCLUDES hueyPRO colorimeter with USB power cord, hueyPRO device cradle, hueyPRO profiling software and Quick Start Guide. hueyPRO’s increased color accuracy combined with the ability to calibrate multiple monitors delivers the solution you need to accurately view your images. With its customizable white point and gamma combinations, enhanced LCD calibration and Advanced Help, the hueyPRO is the answer to your color needs.
