LibraryLoader from Gallery Software

Monday May 19, 2003. 12:16 PM, by Francois Déchery Music Software > Gallery Software
Music Software : LibraryLoader from Gallery Software - macmusicGallery UK announced a special introductory discounted price of US $299 for their new LibraryLoader application which is now shipping. LibraryLoader allows owners of Sound Effects and Production Music CDs to quickly and easily transfer them to hard disk, building them into an on-line, networkable SFX Library to be catalogued and accessed by the new DigiBase management system included with Pro Tools 6.

LibraryLoader was designed specifically to support Pro Tools 6 and Digibase leveraging Gallery's 10 years experience of developing Sound Effects and CDRipping software, which is currently used by more than 4,000 of the world's leading sound designers in most of the worlds major sound facilities. However, LibraryLoader creates files which are fully compatible with a number of other systems, including Gallery's industry standard Mtools sound effects system (which includes LibraryLoader), Waveframe 7 and any other application which reads industry standard BWF File descriptions. The file descriptions can even be viewed directly in OS9 and OSX Finder windows.

LibraryLoader is the ONLY software which reads track and index subcode directly from the CD when turbo-ripping disks on OSX. This is essential to properly segment each of the sub-track indexes into discreet soundfiles with their own descriptions. Turbo-ripping completes ripping a CD in as little as 3 minutes, more than twice as fast as OS9 ripping solutions.

Unlike other OSX 'Ripper' applications, LibraryLoader does not simply 'copy' and 'rename' the mounted AIFF files from the desktop - it actually communicates directly with the CD-drive to extract the precious index subcode information from the disk. It renames the created files, and embeds full manufacturer's descriptions drawn from LibraryLoader's massive CDLink library, which covers virtually every commercial Sound Effect CD ever pressed, plus thousands of CDs of the most popular production music.

The LibraryLoader CDLink system supplies a description for every index of every track of more than 6,000 different Sound Effects and Production Music Cds with more added daily, unlike other OSX 'Ripper' applications which provide support for only the 2 most common sound effects vendors, with no way to support the remainder of your library. LibraryLoader uses dual processors where available for incredible performance, It is optimized for batch ripping, and users need only pop in the next disk and close the tray between disks in a batch. LibraryLoader also offers the option to encode directly into MP4 (AAC) format.

For a limited period, LibraryLoader costs $299 / 199 / eu299, and is available through all good Gallery/Pro Tools dealers and online at The regular retail price of LibraryLoader is US $599.
