New Sonic Arts Announces Nuance 2 Creative Sampler

Creative sampler gets a major update with workflow and engine enhancements - and it's on special offer until the end of July.  

The latest release from New Sonic Arts is a major update to Nuance, an advanced creative software sampler with a host of new features. Here's what the developers told us. 

"Proudly standing out from the crowd of complex and cumbersome samplers, New Sonic Arts Nuance 2's streamlined and intuitive approach will boost your productivity and inspire you to create new sounds - fast.

Nuance 2 excels as both an instrument and drum sampler, providing an all-in-one solution for all your essential sampling needs. With the powerful Map Editor and unlimited Parameter Groups, Nuance offers all the tools necessary to create high-fidelity multi-instruments, key split setups and rich layered sounds."

Version 2 New Features

  • New modulators – new Table Sequencers allow rhythmic, tempo-synced modulation of any modulation target, while the XY Pad provides a powerful link between the Assignment Manager and the Modulation Matrix.
  • Modulation drag and drop – assigning modulation is now quicker and easier than ever!
  • All new User Samples database – organise, batch tag and access your entire sample library within Nuance.
  • Cycle groups - allow 'Round Robin' behaviour across layered Groups, allowing enhanced realism in your instrument patches.
  • Group Multi-Edit – group and layer multi-selection allows convenient bulk editing of any parameter across multiple Groups.
  • Assignment Shortcuts – now allow quick in-place access to MIDI learn and Host Automation assignment.
  • Export to SFZ – in addition to the existing SFZ Import, Nuance 2.0 can now also write SFZ files.
  • New FX – Nuance 2.0 adds two new polyphonic FX modules: Chorus and FM
  • Drag files to host – drag samples from the File Browser and Database to your host or other apps
