72.600 Samples - Edward Ultimate SUITE includes 72.600 real recorded and lovely edited Foley Artist sounds. Recorded with state-of-the-art equipment in a professional environment with 48.000 Hz and 24 Bit.
90 Variations - Great sounding Foley lives from its variation. Edward Ultimate SUITE comes with 60 different combinations of shoes and surfaces, 18 Clothes and 12 Props to give you access instantly to a professional arsenal on Foley possibilities.
13 Moves - Three different walking speeds plus jog and run, stairs, stomp, land, scuff and three types of scrapes! All varieties mapped to a specified keyboard key for real time performance with left/right foot diversion.
Two Decks - Layering Foley sounds is the most efficient way to get your desired sound. The Edward Ultimate interface includes two decks, each can load a different setup for endless possibilities to mix or change the sound while performing.
Pitch Perform - Do not stretch your fingers to far – Use the pitch wheel to play common variations while performing. Use the top and bottom menus to select a performance to be played when the pitch wheel is used.
Mix with Mod-Wheel - Use your modulation wheel on the keyboard as a crossfader, for shifts and blends between the two decks. Alternatively, mix two textures or shoe types to sustain throughout a performance or for creating an altogether new sound.
Lock the type of Randomization - Improve your workflow with locking the start sample of a clip. Edward will play the performance always with the same set of samples. Use the fader to adjust the first sound.
Adjustable Delay - Either way if you mix two or more instances of Edward together or you just want to delay the entire footsteps in your session, the delay fader can be a genius helping hand. Also if you like to play more people at once with your keyboard.
Perfect with EDV3RB - Footsteps have to suite the environment where the action is happening. Edward uses all EdV3rb Impulse-Responses inside the instrument. This is useful to archive your desired ambience and makes EdV3rb the perfekt AddOn.
"A year ago Edward (footsteps library) surprised a SFX market with its unique instrument for sound design. Since then the Edward was mentioned quite a lot in various magazines as well as the audio spotlight for its unique capabilities. Now, the Edward makes a comeback with two new versions of the instrument (Extended and Ultimate editions). I took them for a spin and was quite surprised by it." by
"If you are doing foley work and you cannot afford a real Foley artist in a real foley studio then Edward is well worth checking out." - by Mike Thornton
