EdgeSounds has released the Genevoice GM64Pro24, a 64 MB 24-bit quality General Midi (GM) SoundFont bank.
Nowadays just the “CD quality” is not enough anymore. Contemporary equipment is capable of reproducing much better quality. So, why midi-files still must suffer? Well created midi-files deserve the appropriate sound quality. That is why we have created the Genevoice GM64Pro24, the first 24-bit sound quality General Midi (GM) SoundFont bank.
In a process of creating this exclusive bank we have recorded 6436 raw stereo samples with total volume of more than 1.5 GB. 950 samples were carefully chosen, edited, looped, balanced and added to the collection. The EdgeSounds Genevoice GM64Pro24 contains 2 banks of 128 GM compatible melodic instruments each (256 total) and 11 XG compatible drum sets. 24-bit quality allows approximately +6db dynamic range increase compared to 16-bit, which delivers large amount of extra details in a sound of instruments. Users of the new 24-bit capable hardware can enjoy the higher fidelity sound when playing standard midi-files. But other 16-bit hardware and software synthesizers will render the Genevoice GM64Pro24 bank in 16-bit quality, still delivering the brilliant quality of its samples. This flexibility makes the bank attractive not only for computer game users but also for music professionals in a search for new distinct soundings.
Although a relatively new name, the EdgeSounds has a long history of development and research in fields of electro-acoustics and pro-sound engineering. It partially continues the former Geniesys Voice work and incorporates some of the former Geniesys Voice and NTONYX specialists. The company’s main business is developing sound libraries in various formats with an emphasis on rare ethnic musical instruments, particularly from Central Siberian region of Russia.
