I’ve just been given a sneak preview of a new Presence sound bank that a third-party developer has been making and it sounds really nice… Not sure when it will be on the market, it’s a work in progress, but I personally can’t wait to have it. People keep asking me about new sounds for Presence – I guess a lot of people don’t realise that Presence is basically a sophisticated SoundFont player, so any sounds in that format should work great with it. So there are already a huge amount of sounds available if you know where to look.
My personal favorite place is Digital Sound Factory. These guys are ex-Emu developers, and they have pretty much the entire Emu sampler and Proteus module library available as SoundFonts, which can be dragged and dropped directly from the Studio One browser into Presence. I have a ton of these sounds and they are killer, highly recommended. The Proteus Pack especially is ridiculous value for money: 3,500 Proteus instruments for $99! That’s a no-brainer if you want to increase your library fast.
Or if you are really on a budget, a quick Google search will turn up some nice freebies, such as:
Anyone know of any other good resources like this?
