Spectrasonics Announces New Delivery Platforms
Spectrasonics announced a major change in their delivery platforms and has eliminated all DVD-ROM discs in its virtual instrument product line — replacing them with modern Download and Drive Editions. The company is now using high quality USB drives in their in-store packaging for all three of their award-winning virtual instruments, Omnisphere 2, Trilian and Stylus RMX Xpanded — making physical installation dramatically faster, easier, and more reliable.
Eric Persing, Spectrasonics’ Founder and Creative Director, says, “We are extremely pleased to at last offer our whole line of virtual instruments in vastly improved modern platforms that truly match the rest of the premium experience of our award-winning instruments. We happily bid farewell to the era of optical discs and their eternal install times!”
USB Drive Editions
The new metal credit-card style USB drives are designed to make installing Spectrasonics products a vastly simplified process. The transfer speed is many-times faster than optical discs as well, saving users hours during the install process. While these non-writeable drives are intended for installation and not for actually streaming the instruments, they are much more reliable than DVD discs. Finally, the wallet-size USB drive can be easily stored for future use when new computer installs are needed.
