Premier provider of virtual instrument technology teams up with industry legend to form new research and development arm.
SONiVOX ®, the Boston based virtual instrument manufacturer, today announced the formation of NEMESYNTH™ Research & Development Group, SONiVOX’s new research and development arm dedicated solely to the exploration and innovation of new audio technologies.
To lead this new group, SONiVOX has hired Jim Van Buskirk as Chief R&D Technologist. Van Buskirk, a co-inventor of the very first computer hosted virtual instrument, is a legendary figure in the music software industry. Inventor, creator, and publisher of Gigastudio™, GigaSampler™, GigaViolin™, GigaPiano™, and GigaPulse™, Van Buskirk has invented and co-invented many music and audio related US patents, including the patent for low-latency direct from disc sample streaming.
“Joining the SONiVOX team is much like coming home to an innovation-driven atmosphere,” said Van Buskirk. “Now we are in the process of brining the first of many significant new technologies to the table and have a dream team assembled to bring them out. Our vision is that SONiVOX’s NemeSynth™ technology will do for the next generation of instruments what disk-based streaming did for sampling, blowing it wide open with 100 times the potential.”
Under Jim Van Buskirk’s leadership the NEMESYNTH™ R&D group will focus solely on the development of new enabling technologies for computer based musicians. These technologies will be integrated into SONiVOX’ premier line of end-user software products as well as its OEM offerings. The first of these products will be previewed and released in early/mid 2010.
