Get trigger happy today, try Soundboard 2.0.0 out for free now.
The new 2.0.0 version of Soundboard features major functionality upgrades, such as our new Soundpipe(TM) technology, which allows users to route audio to other applications (such as GarageBand) for recording. Other features include a totally redesigned one-window user interface, with major improvements such as per-effect fader controls, Duck and Pause All controls, and much more!
Soundboard is available immediately for $49. Registered users of Soundboard 1.x can upgrade to version 2.0.0 at the discounted rate of just $19.
Soundboard answers the needs of live performers, podcasters and broadcasters everywhere looking for an elegant way to instantly incorporate sound clips into their productions, or to quickly and efficiently use onboard audio to create custom musical mashups.
Hitting the wrong trigger during a live performance can have dire consequences, so Soundboard's user interface has been designed to scale proportionally for easy to see and activate triggers. You'll be able to find your desired sounds at a glance, and triggering them will quickly become automatic. Triggers can be renamed at will, color-coded, and shuffled around the board to suit your needs.
When you import audio into Soundboard, it is converted to Apple Lossless format so playback will be instant. In addition, Soundboard has a sophisticated internal sound caching mechanism to ensure very low latency when cuing effects, and also minimal CPU impact when playing them.
The sound triggers available to you in Soundboard can also be used to quickly and efficiently build custom mashups from your onboard audio. Assign up to 32 sounds per tab, and create as many tabs as you need, and you can share 'boards with other Soundboard users. Combine this easy-to-adapt workspace with the recording power of WireTap Studio - or WireTap Anywhere and your favorite high-end editor - and your creative and recording potential is boundless.
Soundboard applies the familiar audio editing environment and filtering tools of WireTap Studio to any sounds you import. Create intros and fades, crop at will, and apply filters to your audio without fear of losing your original file. Soundboard's streamlined interface and speed will get you the sound you need, when you need it.
You can control Soundboard via any MIDI device, and MIDI effects such as panning and gain are automatically applied to Soundboard's output. Have your sound play in its entirety with a tap, or have it run only while holding down your chosen MIDI trigger. With Soundboard, it's your audio, your way.
Soundboard requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later; and a 1.25GHz G4 with 1G RAM or better is recommended. Soundboard is a Universal Binary application. Screenshots, press releases, logos, and usage guidelines can be downloaded from the Ambrosia Software, Inc. Press Room.
