Sonivox Pulse - Advanced Production Instrument

Although not yet available, Sonivox have announced that Pulse will be in stores on November 1st with an introductory price of $99.99.

Bringing Akai's famous MPC concept to the desktop results in something that goes beyond a beat making machine and is much more flexible than the old hardware units.

Sonivox say this is "Next-generation music production software", it combines MPC style editing and workflow, with the power of you computer.

It imports most MPC file formats including MPC 60/II, MPC 3000, MPC 2000, MPC 2000XL, MPC 1000, MPC 2500, MPC 500, MPC 5000 as well as AIFF, WAV, Broadcast WAV, ACID & MP3 files.

In addition to being able to import your own sounds, Pulse has a factory sound bank with more than 400 drum kits, boomin basses, juicy instruments, and SFX.

Here is an overview of the feature list:

  • N8 User-assignable stereo outputs and 8 User-assignable effects busses complete with tempo sync stereo delay, EQ, and reverb effects.
