Manytone Music has now released ManyStation, their new windows VSTi sample-based workstation, updated from the initial announcement with 1.5GB of multi-sampled soundsets.
The focus of ManyStation is on detailed and highly playable sounds. Some of the instrument soundsets include between 20 and 60 multi-samples with special layers (such as slides, string noise and guitar palm mutes).
The sounds include multi-sampled acoustic guitars, electric guitars, bass guitars, cellos and vintage hardware synths. There are hundreds of presets covering drums, percussion, pads and FX. All samples have been hand edited by Manytone. The natural instrument samples have captured each note's full decay without any looping.
ManyStation also allows extensive programming and comes with onboard FX (including chorus, distortion, delay and reverb).
ManyStation costs $99.99 ($79.99 for registered Wusikstation users) and is available for download. A CD/DVD version is available for $114.99 ($94.99 for Wusikstation users).
