Galaxy is a simple but powerful tool that will dramatically transform the quality of your musicmaking experience- and your music.

Music is all about sound, and for that synth track you're about to lay down, you need the perfect sound... let's see... where is it? Perhaps lurking somewhere in bank 17 of your keyboard... no, it's on one of those sound cards for this module... no, maybe that one... or is it on some CD-ROM, or your hard drive, or in the closet on a floppy disk in the side zipper pocket of your turquoise parachute pants...?

Forget that! Forget hitting arrow keys until your finger falls off, squinting into tiny dim green LCD displays, searching for the perfect sound forever. Now you have Opcode's Galaxy, a Universal Sound Librarian software package that gives you the power to quickly and conveniently organize vast numbers of sounds and setups for your entire studio- all your synthesizers, modules, effects processors, drum brains, guitar synths or multi-effects, keyboard controllers or any other MIDI device. Galaxy also works in perfect tandem with Vision (or any other OMS Name Manager-compatible program), supplying currently loaded patch names so you're always choosing your sounds from a friendly pop-up menu on your big, bright computer screen with all sounds listed by name- even organized into subfolders by category if you'd like!

With Galaxy Plus Editors you get all the sophisticated patch librarian functions of Galaxy listed above PLUS the ability to easily program your sounds onscreen.

Distinctive music deserves distinctive sounds, and there's a lot of depth in today's synthesizers that most users never access because of the frustration of trying to program through a small LCD window.

Galaxy Plus Editors lays out your instruments' sound controls on your computer screen, allowing instant click-and-drag control of any patch parameter. Even envelopes can be graphically viewed and edited.

Changes are sent to your instrument in realtime, so you can hear changes as you're making them. In fact, while your song is playing in Vision (or any OMS-compatible software), you can switch into Galaxy Plus Editors and edit a sound in real time- while the actual part plays!

Whether you just want to easily and quickly tweak an envelope or effect to better fit your song, or blaze new trails through uncharted sound universes, Galaxy Plus Editors is the perfect solution.
