polyphontics gb

April 29th, 2006


If you’re like me*, you love playing around with Apple’s multi-track audio editor but you’re not satisfied with the standard software instuments. I’ve been looking for a way to get my own loops and samples into GarageBand since it came out; Apple has a secret loop utility stashed away on their ftp site but it’s not super useful compared to other looping tools — and it only allows you to make drag n’ drop loops, not “software instruments” that can be triggered via MIDI.

Enter PolyPhontics GB; this cheap ($25.00) little utility allows you to take your own sound files and make software instruments out of them, quickly and easily. The user interface is clear, and the output is perfect; it’s just what I was looking for.


*And if you’re even more like me, you’re a little tipsy right now.
