German audio developer Emagic has released version 3.0 of its universal MIDI device editor and librarian, SoundDiver. The new version gets an overall interface redesign and new key commands, as well as a few new features. It's also boosted the number of supported devices to 512.
SoundDiver 3.0 automatically scans and identifies MIDI devices and displays them, along with all of their parameters, onscreen. Each MIDI device is identified with a detailed icon that looks like the original unit. SoundDiver offers definable key commands, and the graphic editors allow users to edit every aspect of their setup with a few mouse clicks. Users can also freely organize and catalog patches in searchable libraries and define shortcut keys.
The new version also features Controller Assignments. These allow for the use of a single MIDI controller unit as a universal control surface for every device in the MIDI system. Any parameter in any device can be assigned to be remote controlled by almost any MIDI message. SoundDiver is available now for $199.
Emagic has also announced the release of ES1 TDM, an analog synth. The ES1 TDM can be used by Logic Audio Platinum 4.5 (or higher) with Digidesign's ProTools TDM-based systems only on the Macintosh. The ES1 TDM runs on one DSP of a Digidesign Pro Tools 24 Mix Core/Farm card or a PCI DSP Farm card. With one DSP the ES1 TDM generates eight voices with a single patch, two different patches with four voices each or eight different monophonic patches. It's available now for $299.
