The Situation of the Reality …

The current lack of “NT” upgrades to Reality products does not need to be a problem. Many of the new architectures introduce delays that Reality users have never had. Seer products work great with Windows 95/98/Me, as long as you avoid WDM drivers that come with some new sound cards. They also work well with Cakewalk, Cubase, and all the other major sequencer programs as-is. We also observe an international market persists were OS and cpus are not changed as frequently. The price-to-performance ratio of a sufficient Intel PC, Reality or Surreal, sequencer and digital output card simply cannot be beat.

We are not aware of anyone who has exhausted the sonic potential of these instruments. Most importantly, As we’ve always said, if all you want is a simple “analog” synth, or just a sample-playback engine, go and buy the flavor of the month. On the other hand if you want a totally integrated instrument that includes analog, FM, Sondius physical modeling, sampling, modal synthesis – the whole tradition – all available simultaneously, we’re basically the only game in town. And you can always try our free demo versions first on a modern installation.

Producer: John Holston
Music and lyrics by: John Holston
14 reMixer tracks

This tune was composed in MIDI using Cakewalk Pro Audio 8.0 and Reality 1.5.3 for all the instruments. The vocal tracks were recorded onto Cakewalk Pro Audio multi tracks, mixed down to one track and edited into samples in Sound Forge 4.0. The resulting vocal samples were then imported into the Reality sound bank and mapped to the keyboard using Reality. Going back to Cakewalk the vocal samples were then “played” on the keyboard controller while the other MIDI tracks played. After the MIDI file was complete it was imported into Reality and the entire soundbank was saved as a SeerMusic file, given a discrete name, and you are now listening to it!

Gear used: Homemade computer with Pentium II-350, 64 megs RAM, Win 98, AWE64 Gold sound card, Stedman vocal mic, Behringer Autocomp compressor.
