Presence & SoundFonts

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?

    I have the DSF Proteus set and a hardware Proteus 2000 – the sounds aren’t exactly the same but that’s OK. What I’d like to be able to do and can’t figure out how is, in Studio One, to search for a particular sound among these 3500! Stepping through the folders takes aaages.. The search works OK for Presonus samples,,,

    Just messing with the free Studio ONE 2, trying to get presence to do anything with no luck.. There is nothing in my sounds browser as is so I am trying to install some sounds to test presence. I have found some sound font downloads through this page but everything is compressed as sfark. I cannot find a sfark converter for OSX. Does anyone know the name of one, or have a link!.. Thanks.

    I love the presence synth/sampler on S1. I was wondering if the presence patches could be loaded directly into a E-MU hardware sampler like an ESI-32 or ESI 2000. It would be great to have some of these patches for live use without having to use a PC or laptop on stage.
