Yellow Tools Independence sampling workstation garnered plenty of praise when it was launched, and the second version of it is now shipping in a ‘Pro´ bundle with two other products: Independence Live and Independence FX.
Version 2 of the main Independence app adds some crucial new functionality, including support for multi-core computers and the ability to host third-party plug-ins. It´s fronted by a redesigned interface and comes with a 70GB sound library.
Independence Live is designed for users who want to take Independence to the stage and use it in a performance context. You can load an unlimited number of projects and instantly switch between them, there´s flexible audio and MIDI routing, and you can use any hardware controller.
Finally, Independence FX is a virtual effects rack that contains all the insert and effects from the main Independence 2 application (including Origami, the realtime impulse response processor). It can be used in any suitable host application and features a drag ‘n´ drop browser for quick-and-easy loading of the hundreds of supplied presets.
Independence Pro is Mac- and PC-compatible and costs $499/€449/£299. Find out more at the Yellow Tools website.
