New Media Gear reviews Soundboard

Posted Aug 5 2009, 02:40 PM

ROCHESTER, New York -- August 5, 2009 -- "How times have changed. Picture large industrial, proprietary tape players with equally clunky and huge START buttons, tapes and huge blade-connection Molex plugs for cabling. That’s a cart machine. They needed to be cleaned, aligned and were notorious for wearing the rubber pinch rollers quicker than a set of retreads on an old Camaro." The words from Mark Jensen sound almost like poetry. Mark Jensen is clearly an old hand at servicing these beasts of yore. It is for users like him that we were thinking of when we conceived Ambrosia Soundboard.

Soundboard offers instant, one tap access to any audio clips, FX, or music on your Mac for use in podcasting or DJ mashups. Nimble and elegant, Soundboard combines drag and drop ease with a feature-rich lossless editor to create the ideal platform for live performances.

Mr. Jensen continues: "At a current price of $29, Soundboard (at least in my opinion) doesn’t have any competition."

Soundboard used on Macworld Mac Pundit Showdown Podcast

Posted Jul 30 2009, 04:59 PM

ROCHESTER, New York -- July 30, 2009 -- "I'll take 'Game Show Necessities' for $29, please." Answer is: Soundboard. "Is it 'What is Ambrosia Software's newest utility, designed to offer easy and instant access to any audio file available on your Mac?"

If you are running a game show, sound effects are the one thing you don't want to be without. You can't fully enjoy any game show without having the bombardment of buzzers, alarms, and winning sound effects.  And that is why Jason Snell of Macworld.com is this week's winner!

It seems that Jason has forgone the old clunky method of using GarageBand to cobble together his sound effects and has instead turned to Soundboard to handle all his sound requirements.   In his blog he states that he enjoyed using Soundboard for his latest Mac Pundit Showdown podcast.  He continues to briefly describe it's uses, as it has become a key part of the Macworld Podcasts.

If you would like to Soundboard for yourself, there is a free trial here:

***Offer not valid on PCs, Linux, or abacus.  Consult your doctor if while using this easy to use application your experience increased respiration, quickening of pulse, or frequent smiles.

Best games you’ve never heard of: Escape Velocity Nova

Posted Jun 17 2009, 06:02 AM

ROCHESTER, New York -- June 17, 2009 -- What makes Ambrosia so distinguishable amongst the other software companies? Is it it's unique games and utilities, It's way in creating them, or perhaps even the crew itself? To answer that question; Yes, it's all of those, and much more. Ambrosia might not be the most well known company on the planet, but to our fans we are one of the best.  That is why we are always happy to read news articles/blog postings/reviews of our product from genuine fans hoping to share their favorite games with the world. Chris Rhodan is one of those individuals, he recently posted the first in hopefully a continuing series entitled "Best games you've never heard of". With that, the very first product he decide to share with his readers was Ambrosia's EV Nova.

Chris writes:

"Escape Velocity: Nova boasts depth beyond most major games; with 6 unique major factions (each with their own deep and unique though mutually exclusive storylines) and numerous smaller factions and sidequests (theres around 700 unique missions in all), as well as countless unique ships (as well as numerous models of each ship) to purchase as well as hundreds of upgrades to add your ship of choice. All these alone allow for huge amounts of replayability, but theres also a massive mod support base with hundreds of mods ranging from small additions (such as the ability to repaint your ship) to huge total conversions (such as recreating the Star Trek universe) available to increase the game’s longevity.

All in this one little shareware package where you can try it for free for 30 days… whats not to lose?"
