Of course, times have changed, and with the advent of affordable high-speed CD ROM drives, more and more musicians have come to depend upon the CD ROM method of sample storage over all others. And for good reason: a CD ROM is a nearly perfect archival medium. It's small, lightweight, dependable and holds a ton of data, none of which will ever be lost as long as reasonable care is taken when handling the discs.
Last year, Sweetwater began the time-consuming process of mastering all the samples in their massive library onto five CD ROMs. The first disc released was the much-requested Grand Piano CD ROM Collection, consisting of all eleven grand piano samples in both the Stratus Sounds and RSI libraries, including stunning 16 megabyte stereo, triple strike Young Chang and Yamaha grands and a stereo Bosendorfer Imperial Grand.
Following closely were Volumes One through Three of the Stratus Sounds library Classical Instruments, American Standard Collection and Exotic Instruments and Synths plus the final disc in the current series, RSI Samples on CD ROM.
All five discs in the Sweetwater Sound K2000 CD ROM library are fully compatible with the brand new Kurzweil K2500 (which should be close to shipping in very limited quantities by the time you read this). Each of the discs costs just $399, a fraction of the price this material would cost if purchased on individual floppies.
