8Dio - Dobro Solo

Size: 2,10 Go

Configuration: KONTAKT 5.5.0

NKS Compatible: NO

Accessible parameters: NO

Demo here.

Presentation:

8Dio Dobro Guitar Solo VST is a warm and authentic sounding Dobro Americana. We recorded the Dobro Guitar VST in great detail with both sources and the strings muted.

We've included hundreds of natural frets and release noises.

Additionally, we've also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play everything in an intuitive, pulse-pounding way.

8Dio Dobro Guitar comes with 18 basic patches divided into natural, morphed and synthesized categories.

Morphea category merges with Dobro guitar with other instruments

(ex: grand piano, steel string guitar, analog synthesizers and other exotic type instruments).

The synthetic category contains Dobro mixed with different types of synths.

8Dio has also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi,

convolution) in the presets, so you can trigger these FX by

directly to patches using the keyboard switches.

8Dio has also incorporated a dual convolution reverb.

 

Features :

The Dobro Strummer contains over 8,500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 18 common rhythm types.

All chords and rhythms can be mixed seamlessly using our x-legato technology.

The X-legato system allows you to combine any chord and rhythm to give you endless combinations.

Additionally, the Dobro Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times, you'll get subtle natural variation. The Dobro Strummer also contains a unique patch with movie-inspired strums. Dobro Strummer contains all the classic chords used in traditional writing, but also contains more elaborate chords.

The rhythm section is equally deep from the type of traditional strum rhythms to more genre-specific rhythms (ex: country, arped fingered, muted muted).

In addition, we have also recorded Dobro Slide beats, which gives additional options for designing new types of beats.

The Dobro Guitar Solo is incredibly flexible, intuitive and easy to use.

All major controls are available on the front of the interface.

So if you want to control the rubbing sounds of fingers moving through the strings,

adjust the volume of fingers dropping strings, adding real-time strings to chords.

Presentation:

LIBERIS - Exquisite Angelic Choir VST is our next-generation choir library featuring the 45-piece professional choir Piedmont led by choirmaster Bob Geary.

The library represents the most accurate and detailed symphonic children's choir on the market, including the full ensemble choir and 3 deeply sampled soloists.

LIBERIS lets you create realistic choirs using a variety of next-gen features, including True Layered Legato, which includes both normal and velocity-based legato portamento.

 

Features :

The library contains a deep section of over 28 different Multi-Vowels for the ensemble and 22 different Multi-Vowels for the 3 soloists.

The mix of True Layered Legato and Multi-Vowels lets you create 100% lively choral renditions.

The library also includes 3 unique Soloists, designed to work with the Ensemble Chorus and add a more distinct profile to your mix if needed.

We also include an unparalleled effects section with +1000 effects ranging from basic consonants/vowels, clusters, sweeps, whispers, shouts, chirps, children's songs, claps, snaps and more.

LIBERIS exclusively recorded large series of Neumann microphones in the same A-shaped church that we used for our Adagio, Agitato, Adagietto and Anthology String series. The library includes three distinct microphone positions (5.1), including Close, Middle, and Room/Far.

Everything was recorded in pristine 24-bit using some of the best preamps and recording devices around.

The library is also available in a very intuitive and playable user interface (UI). The user interface allows you to freely switch between joints without loading additional patches. We created additional controls like Amp Env, Pitch Env and the ability to rhythmically pulse between joints. We've also added new Front-Faced effects, including various filter options, BPM-synchronized gate, Stereo-Delays, Compression, Textural Convolutions, Experimental Convolutions and a large number of custom reverb pulses from our private catalog of samples.

 

Instrument details

Layered True Legato

LIBERIS contains a wonderful in-depth selection of real layered legato substrates, which are completely smooth and realistic. Layered legato means that different types of legatos are triggered depending on how hard you play the keys. The softer you play - the more slut and portamento like legato becomes. The firmer you play - the faster legatos react to your playing styles. Layered legatos come in three main articulation groups: "Ah", "Mmmm" and "Oh" and with each of them with dynamic dynamics controls.

LIBERIS also contains three exclusive groups of true legato portamento articulation which include: “Ah”, Mmmm” and “Oh”. combination, you can create completely realistic choral pieces.

 

Liberis Soloists

The LIBERIS choir includes 3 different solo singers, including 1 boy soloist and 2 soloists. All soloists have identical articulations, so you can create advanced pieces by using them together. Articulations include a set of 18 deep samples and 22 different multi-vowels. Additionally, the 3rd soloist also has real legato and portamento articulations for added realism.

LIBERIS soloists are designed to be used with the main choir.

 

Phrase-Builder. Staccato and Marcatos.

LIBERIS comes with an easy-to-use phrase builder, which gives you the ability to create strings of sequenced phrases in seconds.

Liberis contains a large collection of Staccato and Marcatos which allows you to create advanced words and phrases together. Staccatos include 9 different vowels including: "Ah, Doh, Fah, La, Mi, Oooh, Re, So, Tus".

The Marcatos are longer and with a more deliberate and planned force in them, they include 6 different vowels: "Ah, Doh, Fah, Meh, Rey, Soh". All Staccatos and Marcatos are preloaded, so you can freely switch between them on your keyswitches.

 

Choral effects

LIBERIS contains the most comprehensive effects section. Choral effects let you do amazing things with the choir, including assorted body percussion (breath sounds, chirps, consonants with quick select option, doppler, percussion, children's songs, swoops, swoops, moods etc). The idea is to give you a great selection of effects that should be used with the other parts of the library. Whether adding breath sounds for naturalism or inserting consonants with other phrases to create new words.

 

Chaos FX

LIBERIS also includes our Deep Chaos effects.

We've included Phaser and Flangers, Three Band EQ, Bit-Crusher and Distortion. Stereo-Delay makes two parallel delays. Two types of convolution reverb. Including a large collection of custom reverb pulses and more experimental convolutions. The Chaos Effects also contains built-in randomizers - letting the spell roll its dice on the instrument. Besides, you also have a variety of other effects called Front-Faced Effects.

 

New front-end effects

LIBERIS also contains our new Front-Faced FX, which allows you to control the most fundamental effects from the front panel (ex: Filter, Gate, Delay, Compression, Pitch- and Envelopes and our new textural convolution system, Form). You can also take it a step further with our new Chaos FX system, which includes step filtering, EQ, bit crusher, distortion, dual stereo delay and an additional convolution system on top of our textural convolution delays personalized.

At the request of Jaeger users, Audio Imperia offers the vocal part of Merethe Soltvedt in a limited edition in a separate bank.

If you own Jaeger, this ad won't help you, but if you're looking for a cinematic voicebank for Kontakt, check out this special Hangar 4 edition from Audio Imperia's limited-edition collection.

Jaeger Hangar 4 brings together the vocal section of Merethe Soltvedt, with Aah, Ooh and Mmm in legato and sustain, as well as chromatic rises and phrases sung in major, minor, with power and softness.

Since Jaeger's release, the library has received accolades from users and reviewers and we've received an overwhelming number of emails and messages about Jaeger's Hangar 4: Merethe Soltvedt's Song.

Here's what some of you said about Hangar 4:

"If there's one area where Jaeger impressed me, it's this set of samples, from singer Soltvedt. Vocal libraries are unwieldy because they present challenges and obstacles that don't are not present in the other instruments of the orchestra. Audio Imperia has made it stand out with its offer in this department." - Monthly Movie Score

The library comes with:

• Legatos (Aah / Ooh / Mmm).

• Supports (Aah / Ooh / Mmm).

• Higher scales (in Major/Minor and Soft/Loud).

• Phrases (in Major/Minor and Soft/Loud).

Merethe Soltvedt is an award-winning singer who has played for composers such as Jeff Broadbent, Henry Lai, Tom Salta, Ivan Torrent and companies like Brand X, Two Steps From Hell and Ghostwriter Music. A truly unique and very angelic voice that will add a whole new dimension to your music.

Presentation:

• Bechstein is the Stradivarius of pianists." (Hans Bόlow)

• Piano music should only be written for the Bechstein!" (Claude Debussy)

While the sound banks of American and Japanese concert pianos from the brands Steinway & Sons and Yamaha are multiplying, there are relatively few European-made pianos in sampled instruments, whereas it is in France and Germany that at the half of the 19th century, appeared the first pianos of modern construction, and in particular those of Pleyel and Carl Bechstein.

 

C.Bechstein, a name entered into legend. An instrument elevated to the rank of a work of art by the greatest artists of all time. Bechstein, the instrument of Queen Victoria and the official supplier of the British crown, the piano of the last Tsars of Russia but also the choice of legendary artists such as Franz Liszt, Hans von Bόlow, Pablo de Sarasate, Alexander Scriabin, Serge Rachmaninov, Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, Wilhelm Kempf, Sviatoslav Richter, Arthur Schnabel, Jorge Bolet, Duke Ellington, Freddie Mercury, The Beatles, Bod Dylan or Elton John among many others. After the fall of the Berlin wall and German reunification, Bechstein is taking up the challenge of equaling the quality of the Steinways & Sons, of overtaking the Yamahas (in Japan, more and more classical pianists are switching to Bechstein) and perhaps even to constantly seduce new pianists, who, after having tried a Bechstein, find in it more warmth and possibilities than in a Steinway, yet the market leader.

The C. Bechstein Digital Grand was developed to meet the high expectations of composers and musicians, as well as the detailed demands of high-level everyday recording. The model sampled for Kontakt v5.68 and up, is C. Bechstein's top of the line D282, with an average value of $142,000. This heir to the fortepianos has a sound that is both warm and melodious, strong and clear, offering great pianists a very great ability to play, to the point that it is today one of the 5 best pianos on the market and interest more and more musicians. With a European sound and a construction tradition that combines German craftsmanship with the secrets of Frenchman Sιbastien Erard, the inventor of the key repeating system (known as the double escapement system), secrets presumably transmitted in Paris to Carl Bechstein by the son of 'Erard, this piano makes it possible to combine the extreme demands of the Romantic period with the sonic simplicity of the Baroque period. Widely used in classical music, and increasingly in jazz and modern music, this piano takes its place in the digital audio world with this sound bank for demanding musicians.

The double escapement system makes it possible to repeatedly play a key when it has not yet returned to its fully released position. This is where Bechstein pianos make the difference, in the ability to adapt to the very complex playing of pianists of the Romantic period, who played in a way that was both very expressive and very sporty. Isn't it Franz List, who, in the ardor of his youth, broke 3 to 4 hammers per concert, before new, more solid pianos appeared from 1855, including the Bechstein? Obviously, in the digital world, this problem no longer exists and it is difficult to have with virtual instruments the same sensations as on an acoustic piano.

 

With 26 velocity layers, the sounds, constituting more than 10,000 samples, can be adjusted very precisely through the graphical interface. The samples were made by the Teldex studio in Berlin, in 24 bits / 192 kHz using a Mid / Side separation thanks to the precise positioning of 6 microphones. The sound of a piano string is influenced by many parameters. With the acoustic instrument, the tuner ensures that certain areas of the grand piano sound warmer, more percussive, lively or on the contrary more contained, a struck string causing the resonance of other strings. The Digital Grand comes with 12 presets: Enjoy Digital Grand, Classical (Near), Classical (Far), Warm Chords, Grand Pop, 80ies Rock, Distant Melodies, Eco (CPU eco mode), Ultra Eco (same), Aura Borealis , Too old to move, Too much of everything. There are added 7 utilities.

With version 1.2, C. Bechstein presents the second major update of the Digital Grand on PC and Mac. The updated sample library, developed with great attention to detail, offers new tonal possibilities and also brings improvements in half-pedal playing. This version brings some corrections and new features:

 

Correction:

• The sound of the pedal when releasing the sustain pedal (CC64) will only be heard when the pedal is fully released.

• An error using the Sustenuto pedal (CC66) has been corrected.

• Fixed Kontakt v6 closing error after using the Digital Grand (Kontakt crash on Windows)

 

New and optimizations:

• New TOP and SIDE instruments with adjusted Sampling Start Points (SP). With these instruments, the starting points of all samples have been shifted in order to improve the touch behavior during playback. The resulting phase shift also allows for tonal alternatives when combining instruments (e.g. with multis).

• 10 new MULTIS give an idea of ​​the sonic possibilities resulting from the combination of different microphone signals. MULTIS marked SP (Starting Point) uses the new instruments adapted to the starting point.

• When playing with sympathetic resonances, chords can now also resonate. With the multiple STRING-EQ and SYMPATHETIC settings, you can switch between the two modes of operation. Use monophonic resonances to save resources or set the volume to zero to not use the function at all.

• The sound of sympathetic resonances has been improved.

• A Silent Key function has been added: when MIDI notes with a velocity of 1 arrive, only key noises are heard (if active under DETAILS).

• Improvements have been made for playing with the half-pedal position. The end of the notes is now extended according to the threshold and starts at around 2/3 of the set value.

Instruments in v1.1.0 can be found in the Legacy subdirectory and are compatible with versions of Kontakt prior to v5.8.2

In the Berchstein Digital Grand, an interface containing 4 basic parameters (BASE, PARTIALS, BODY and MELLOW) and a general STRING-EQ which can mix the 4 or not, allows a very fine adjustment of the sound. Fully closed, STRING-EQ will only play the sound of a single string in mono mode. But by opening it gradually, we can bring out the vibration of the other strings as well as a stereophonic spatialization.

BASE: raises or lowers the root of a note

PARTIALS: Intensifies or reduces the harmonics

BODY: adds sustain or shortens the note

MELLOW: deals with transients and softens the sound and makes it more mellow (mellow)

Each of the series can be fine-tuned with the mouse, according to the notes of the keyboard, bringing the equalization and the leveling of the presence of each note of the keyboard.

 

Over 1,200 combinations of these parameters offer beginners and experienced sound designers an Eldorado of possibilities!

An Audio-Design module allows you to adjust the dynamics of the sound between Mid and Side. The C. Bechstein Digital Grand offers sound engineers and sound designers a method of choice for reproducing different acoustic timbres. Each channel is individually controllable within the plug-in with volume, compression and EQ. A "Magic Eye" adjustable with the mouse, serves as a control of the clarity of the sound from Warm to Bright, depending on the color. The Mid/Side potentiometer allows you to fine tune the sound between all mono on the left, and the opening towards stereo on the right. Compression and EQ settings exist for each Mid and Side channel.

A setting called AURA allows you to add a Close or Direct type stereo sound in phase with the Mid and Side channels. The LID adjustment allows the opening of the lid to be adjusted from 0° to 40°. Finally, a STAGE setting allows you to set the reverberation and the type of environment.

 

If you have a tripe pedal, then you will see on the screen the set of pedals that you can adjust.

 

•Right pedal: called damper or wrongly sustain pedal. By pressing this pedal, all the dampers of all the strings are raised. The notes continue to sound, even after releasing the keys. Unstruck strings can resonate.

•Left pedal: Called mute or sordino or even Una Corda, this pedal causes a mechanical shift to the right of the hammer system. As each key on the keyboard normally activates 2 strings for the bass and 3 strings for the mids and highs, by shifting slightly to the right, only one string is struck in the lows and two strings out of 3 in the mids and highs, resulting in less loud sound.

•Middle pedal: real support pedal (sustain) which keeps the hammers raised, when this pedal is pressed, only for the notes played, but not the others. Thus, the harmonics are reduced to the only notes played and not to the resonances of the other strings which remain muffled.

 

This description only applies to the Bechstein D282 and not to other pianos which may adopt other techniques.

The play of the pedals requires the installation of a triple Midi pedal and to fully benefit from the functionalities of C. Bechstein Digital Grand, a midi keyboard compatible with a triple pedalboard is recommended.

 

Finally, in a DETAILS screen, you can find the settings of the velocity curve with a dynamic expression knob. This is to adapt the sound between seasoned pianists who generally play louder than beginners. 4 settings at the top of the screen allow you to adjust the sounds of:

•KEYS: key sound

•DAMPERS: strength of the shock absorbers (dampers)

•PEDALS: adjusting the action of the pedals

•STRING RELEASES: key release setting

 

Finally 3 potentiometers allow to adjust the depth and the color of the resonance as well as the volume (intensity) of the SYMPATHETIC mode (mode which allows to highlight the harmonics of a note held down with the left hand, in "sympathy" with the notes played with the right hand.) This SYMPATHETIC mode is a trick for experienced pianists and is only possible in this digital version, because no acoustic piano can achieve this.

 

Bechstein-Digital has released a slimmed down version of this bank under the designation "Digital Grand Essential".

The instruments can reach up to 14 GB of samples, which requires waiting for the complete loading of the instruments (white light on), especially for multis whose loading time can reach up to 1mn 30 depending on the speed of the hardware . 16 GB of memory is highly recommended!

• 178 files

• nearly 10,200 24-bit / 192kHz samples

• 4GB of memory (8GB highly recommended, 16GB for an ideal game)

• Modern quadcore CPU recommended

Presentation:

Pattern Strings offers a unique take on ostinatos by providing a collection of tempo-synced rhythmic fragments.

These 19 rhythms were recorded at two dynamic layers on violin, viola, cello and bass, with 4 round robins.

The interface uses an intuitive drag-and-drop mechanism that lets you organize beats into sequences where all the beats flow together with natural phrasing and musicality.

You can drag and drop the rhythms in the center to either pattern strip. If you want to change the order of the rhythms, you can also do this by dragging them.

When Legato is on, new notes are synchronized with previously held notes. In this way, it is possible to create convincing lines by changing the notes according to the rhythms, as can be seen in the demos.

Pattern Strings has an automatic bow direction feature. It plays downbow samples on the low beats and upbow samples on the upbeats, creating a natural ebb and flow between the beats.

The Tempo Sync switch lets you set sample playback at half or double the speed.

Some of the samples were recorded at 90bpm, and others at 80bpm. So let's say you're working out at 160bpm. This would mean that 90bpm samples would be time-stretched at twice their original speed! To compensate for this, you can use the Tempo Sync option to set the speed to half the initial speed.

All instrument combinations have been rendered, both single and with stereo dubbing. It is thus possible to overlay instruments without needing a lot of memory and computing power.

As Pattern Strings contains 8.32 GB of samples, the interface has been designed with a dynamic loading system in order to only load what you need. In order to make the interface more efficient, the instrument combinations have been rendered together, which saves on the number of voices and memory. Thus, if all instruments are enabled, the interface will use the same amount of memory and CPU as if only one instrument was enabled.

Enhance the sound of an instrument by enabling doubling. Stereo-dubbed samples have been rendered lower, so enabling it will not increase the number of voices or memory needed.

Say you're using Pattern Strings on a track, and you have a few different variations to use in different places on the track. Rather than opening multiple instances, you can save variations to Custom Keyswitches.

Simply click on "Map", then on one of the colored keys at the very bottom of the keyboard, and voila, the current pattern can now be recalled by that key!

Generate a sequence of rhythms using the "Random" button, and maybe you'll find something useful.

Configuration: Kontakt

Presentation:

Emotional Cello, unlike other soundbanks developed by Best Service, is intended for use in Kontakt 5 (versions 5.5.2 minimum). The collection was designed in partnership with Harmonic Subtones and is aimed at composers who wish to bring emotion to their sound creations, whether it is film scores, classical music, pop, etc.

To create the bank, the team recorded the instrument at Studio Mastermix in Germany with two Neumann KM184 and U47 microphones in the proximity position. The result is a sample bank with a wide variety of unusual articulations and techniques, including sul ponticello, legato flageolet, morbid sustain, ricochet, spilegno, rota spiccato, plectrum pizzicato, and Renaissance sounds. Harmonic Subtones has also developed so-called smart scripts to achieve 16 playing styles and true legato.

Custom interface for Kontakt includes convolution reverb, overdrive, EQ, room and timbre settings, and 50 patches, each with unique articulation and up to 8 round robins, will save you from playing keyswitches .

 

Traditionally, sampled solo sounds were somewhat masked amidst a multitude of reverbs and other instruments. Because when it comes to the creation of a solo, there was always a reason for the production to fall through. With Emotional Cello, you don't have this problem! It has so many articulations and round robins (repeated recording of the same note) that it's hard to choose.

According to the designers, this collection is capable of reproducing 90% of the sounds produced during the career of a classical or modern style cellist. It's a great promise! It seems that this promise is kept. Indeed, when you close your eyes, you easily imagine the cellist in action. The content of the Emotional Cello software is extremely varied. It not only has the standard articulations (such as legato, spiccato and pizzicato), but also more complex variations and for example special effects. If necessary, you have two, four and eight round robins available to give a realistic feeling to your compositions. It is also possible to borrow round robins from other manufacturers in order to double the number.

Presentation:

The most expressive and detailed virtual viola ever

Emotional Viola is the third member of Harmonic Subtones' Emotional Strings series. This logical and long-awaited addition to the cello and violin, represents a very complete virtual instrument, easy to play, and of course offers many possibilities for customization.

Not only does this Viola Emotional harmonize perfectly with the cello and the violin, but it is also very popular as a solo instrument thanks to its direct and pure sound, its variety of essential elements with extraordinary articulations as well as to its true legato and rebowing.

Emotional Viola is the first choice if you are looking for the perfect instrument for film music, pop music, songwriting, classical or modern and avant-garde compositions for viola!

Contextual sampling

As with the other instruments in the Emotional series, the Munich developers have decided to stay true to their concept of contextual sampling, in which all samples are always recorded in a musical context in order to capture the natural bow and expressiveness of real instrumentalists. In this approach, recordings of real vibrato play an important role, as they are always more uplifting and organic than adding artificial vibrato.

Like the cello and the violin, the viola was recorded in the Mastermix studio near Munich, in a wood-paneled room with high ceilings and the greatest possible distance from the wall. For the greatest possible flexibility of use, two Neumann microphones, type KM184 and U87, were used for close recording. This way the room is kept quite subtle, and you can then create the desired sound with your own effects. However, you can also use the built-in convolution reverb.

• Contains a solo viola with expressive and detailed sounds thanks to its 38 realistic articulations

• 4 legato transitions and extended phrase alignment ensure smooth, inaudible sound between notes up to 8 velocity layers

• Close registration without coin for universal use

• Built-in convolution reverb

 

Best Service - Emotional Violin

Configuration: Kontakt 5.8.1

NKS-compatible: YES

Demo here.

Presentation:

Emotional Violin is the latest instrument released by Best Service, producing impressively expressive tones, capable of reproducing the most refined emotions and boasting unparalleled expressiveness.

If you are looking for the ultimate virtual violin for film music, pop, chanson, classical or even contemporary compositions, Emotional Violin will be right at the top of your list in the number one spot! This unique virtual instrument convinces with a variety of articulations, a direct and pure, unaltered sound and, as a bonus, unusual playing techniques, including rebowing.

Emotional Violin was recorded contextually with the aim of capturing the full expression of violinists whose playing techniques can be extremely complex. The scripting comes in reinforcement to allow 50 different types of games and the "True Legato", allowing this collection to fit into virtually all situations. Beyond the traditional techniques we will find exceptional techniques such as:

• Paganini Run (Legato)

• Morbid Sustain

• Ricochet

• Flautando

• Sulponti

• Double Stopped Chords

The sounds of this collection are available in multiple articulations. However, different phrases, fragments, variations, bars or endnotes can be used as independent elements without having to repeat them. Keyswitches such as "Delicate Fast", "Vivid" or "Moderate" have been created to allow easy use and adapted to the context.

Emotional Violin also offers unusual articulations not easily found in other collections, including the following:

• Normal Sutains with and without Vibrato

• Multiple Progressive Vibratos

• Multiple Espressivo

• Flautando

• Sul Ponticello

• Morbid Sustains

• Harmonics

• Multiple Spiccatos

• Staccato

• Marcato

• Tremolo

• Tremolo Sul Ponticello

• Multiple Trills

• Pizzicato

• Pizzicato Snap

• Paganini Pizzicato

• Scratches

• Piazolla FX

• Diverse Violin Effekte

• Violin Percussions

Emotional Violin was recorded at the Mastermix Studio near Munich in a booth with wooden veneer partitions with a high ceiling and the greatest possible distance from the wall. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184s and U87s were used for very close pickup, allowing studio acoustics to be negligible, to allow the use of custom reverb. To facilitate the use of the instrument, a convolution reverb is integrated.

Emotional Violin offers three patches of True Legato, including the "Romantic Violin" and the "Intimate Violin", which between them contain 80all the articulations, which logically overlap to perfect the sonorities. If, for example, a first note is played without legato, it will be isolated without legato. As soon as a sound is played with legato or sustain, a note in the same context will be triggered to perfect the continuity.

The collection contains about fifty isolated additional patches. Simple sustain patches as well as patches with 4 dynamic layers with corssfade are also included, allowing, if you don't want to work with Keyswitches, to still produce very good recordings. To allow maximum authenticity, these patches without keyswitches contain up to 4 velocity levels and 8 notes in Round Robins (alternate notes to avoid retriggering the same note on short repetitions).

Best Service - Mystica - Female Chamber Choir

Size: 3,06 Go

Configuration: Kontakt 5.2.2

NKS Compatible: NO

Accessible parameters: NO

Demo here.

Presentation:

With Mystica, Eduardo Tarilonte continues his incomparable series of vocal libraries. This classic chamber choir consists of eight extraordinary women, who produce a unique and enchanting sound without comparison.

 

Mystica was designed as a female choir library for solo use or to form a perfectly matched mixed choir when combined with Cantus. Therefore, Mystica was recorded under identical conditions in the Spanish KBYO recording studios located in Granada, using eight selected Neumann microphones and Avalon preamps.

 

Mystica works in perfect partnership with the Cantus library to ensure the perfect team play of the two libraries, Mystica offers the same arranger words and phrases as Cantus. Additionally, a new feature allows phrases and word builder parameters to be quickly exchanged between libraries, in both directions. In this way, the combination of Mystica and Cantus forms an impressive tool for creating stunning chorus passages.

 

Mystica is an unprecedented choir with extraordinary sound quality. Mystica offers an extraordinarily versatile, almost magical sound, equally suited to esoteric and mystical melodies as well as great cinematic passages. One of the advantages of Mystica is its wonderful, expressive "True Legato".

 

Mystica combines realism and inspiration

This incomparable choral library makes it easy to create stunningly realistic choral phrases. Mystica's powerful and innovative word builder combines 24 words in the form of 120 elements, consisting of whole words, matching syllables, and five True-Legato vowels (A, E, I, O, U) plus an additional articulation" Mmh”.

 

Like every Tarilonte voice library, Mystica offers the brilliant and innovative ability to combine each word with one of five True-Legato vowels. In this way, realistic sounding vocal phrases can be created without using ready-made phrases.

 

Nevertheless, Mystica can of course be used as a typical choir library without its Phrase-Arranger. There is a wide choice of 100 Gregorian vocal phrases, making it easy to create sacred moods. In addition, the library offers twelve soundscapes created from voice recordings and vocal effects to create unusual sounds.

 

Features of Mystica:

• Unique female choir of eight singers

• 5 GB, 24-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV samples

• 5 “True Legato” vowels (A, E, I, O, U), split articulation “Mmmh”

• Powerful Phrase-Arranger with 24 words and three different articulations (staccato, fast, slow)

• Words can be separated into 120 short words/syllables

• Combine words with True-Legato vowels - automatic vowel selection

• 100 Gregorian vocal phrases

• 12 soundscapes, created from voice recordings

• Additional voice effects

• New import/export functions allowing exchange of Phrase-Arranger patches between Mystica and Cantus

• Dry recordings, perfect for adding individual reverb

Zodiac contains over 150 instrument patches and 50 multis, organized into categories. Apparently no synths were used in the creation of the sounds, but they were created from organic sources such as sounds found in nature, sound manipulations inspired by classical concrete music, experimental compositions and music from avant-garde, prepared or heavily processed musical instruments, and audio recordings subjected to extreme sound design techniques.

• Pads & Atmospheres contains some excellent, haunting and ethereal textures, ideal for staging.

• Melodic Instruments has more recognizable sounds, with slightly odd names, but fortunately with excellent sonic characteristics (Ambient Glass Harp, Flute Toneholes)

• Bass Instruments is full of unusual low frequency sounds.

• Percussive Instruments and Zodiac Kits contain strange, experimental rhythmic and drum-style sounds.

• Experimental Atonal brings sounds with an even more pleasant strangeness (Bubbling Pantam, Pedal Steel FX, Tankenspiel, Waterphone)

Zodiac's interface is oddly Gothic, with fairly detailed graphics containing gem-like controls as are the sounds.

More turned towards the Games, the Soundtracks with its ethereal sound, its atmospheres, its multiple loops of atmospheres.

CSS offers a Hollywood-style string section. From the colorful vibrato of the high violins to the dark woody textures of the low notes of the cello and bass, you will be instantly inspired. Our goal was to create an instrument that was instantly playable and sounded great.

At the heart of CSS is its state-of-the-art GUI, building on our previous critically acclaimed Cinematic Strings 2 library. That means a short but sweet patch list, easily assignable key switches and MIDI CCs, and a full mixer with output routing options plus reverb. These features and more are all accessible through the main GUI page, so you'll have CSS working alongside you on your latest project in minutes.

CSS has an incredibly realistic legato engine. We painstakingly recorded true legato transitions for every note, up and down, including beautiful portamento. We've also recorded re-bow samples, which means you can play repeated legato notes smoothly and with true-legato realism.

With soft legato, punchy spiccatos, inspiring textural harmonics and con sordino, CSS covers a wide range of the sonic palette offered by a world-class string section. We've kept an authentic, human element to the sound, so you'll feel like you're in a live session. With this new level of realism, you'll feel comfortable using reverb-free CSS; in fact, we recommend it! All of our demos were created without reverb - all you hear is the natural air captured in the samples.

Presentation:

CineSamples takes you back to 90s movies with its new bank of trumpets for Kontakt 90’s Retro Trumpets.

The story that led to 90's Retro Trumpets is quite original. The CineSamples team were making takes at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Picture Studios in Los Angeles last year when they came across directions for the orchestra's recording sessions for Jurassic Park (the first). The idea therefore came to reproduce this sound by following these instructions and with the help of the people from Sony Scoring who were present at the time.

Direction the studios with a set of four veteran trumpeters with the instruments and playing techniques of the time, To perform the takes, CineSamples used the same three Neumann M50 microphones modified in Decca Tree configuration, patched the preamp parameters to the same models always present in the studio, applied Lexicon 480 reverb and Avalon 2055 EQ also available. The result of all this is a sound that is less metallic, simpler and softer than modern recorded trumpets.

90's Retro Trumpets thus includes 12 patches, the interface for Kontakt also allows you to access the six keyswitches, the dynamics (to be managed with the modulation wheel), the vibrato, the velocity, the legato, the mute of the trumpets and three effects: tape saturation, EQ and reverb. You can also extend the note range of the trumpets beyond what was recorded if you need to.

The Abbey Road Classic Upright Pianos collection includes the sounds

two old upright acoustic pianos:

A Challen Studio Piano made in London by Piano Works in the 1930s and used in particular on Beatles albums, with a sound described as soft.

The team produced two patches, one with the usual sound and the other, called Challen Tack, with the sound of the piano whose Tack mechanism has been activated, which lowers brass tongues between the hammers and the strings .

Mrs Mills, a 1905 Steinway Vertegrand modified by the Abbey Road crew in the late 1950s to lacquer the felts of the hammers to make them harder and create a brighter sound with more percussiveness (you can heard in particular on Penny Lane or With a Little Help from my Friends.This piano is slightly out of tune, as requested by Stuart Eltham.

The pianos were recorded in Studio 2.

The interface for Kontakt offers three mixes that you can use at the same time:

Modern with three pairs of condenser mics, Room with a Decca Tree setup

and a pair of ambient mics, and Vintage which uses the same mics used in the Beatles productions, namely AKG D19C (cardioid dynamic), Neuman U67 and AKG C12 (cardioid condenser) mics and the original REDD.37 console .

You also have velocity curve settings, an effects section with EQ, stereo width, saturation and filters that you can adjust separately for each mix and knobs for sample start, release and pedal noise.

It is not a reproduction of Rhodes, and yet it is an electro-mechanical piano that CineSamples offers.

The Keyboard in Blue includes the sound of an electro-mechanical piano built entirely from scratch. The sound will remind you of a Rhodes, but CineSamples adds that it has better sustain and improved sound quality. Also, instead of recording the direct output of the instrument, the signal was fed into a vintage tube guitar combo and the whole thing was recorded at Hollywood Scoring Studios.

Keyboard in Blue offers five distinct mixes: two FET and ribbon mics in front of the amp, a mid-room pickup, the whole room, and a full mix.

The graphical interface will allow you to adjust the dynamic range, the level of each mix, the volumes of the key noises, the pedal, the release of the notes and the beginning of the sample. You can also activate a staccato mode to take advantage of short notes and apply reverb, tremolo, phaser effects, band saturation and a four-band equalizer with gain compensation. Finally, a Pan page is used to adjust the range of low notes sent in the left channel and treble in the right channel.

Presentation:

The Tina Guo Library offers a unique and progressive interpretation of the acoustic and electric cello, as well as the traditional Chinese instrument, the erhu. Integrating Tina's ultra-expressive and experimental performance style into a library of samples is an endeavor that has been accomplished by blurring the lines between music and sound design, a vital part of her music. A vast arsenal of innovative sound design and composition tools introduces a host of new ways to explore and create fresh sounds that are sure to take your productions to the next level.

 

New features

Reflecting the fact that Tina's sound and approach to her instruments are constantly evolving, the library includes a host of inventive features that give the player the ability to similarly develop a fresh sound in many new and different ways. Among these may be mentioned

• The Phrase Builder: A system for building melodic ideas using fragments of Tina's performances in a variety of playing styles

• Drone Designer: Create variable sound beds by manipulating intensity and navigating through long samples of unfolding cello drones using the Mod wheel

• Built-in Granular Synth FX: Explore a harmonically rich and complex sound design spread across the stereo field with left-right graining functionality

• Repeat Note Round Robin Staccatos (RNRRS): A new feature that automatically switches to a separate RR sample set when repeating a short note, resulting in a much more natural cello sound

More Tina Guo at CineSamples

CineSamples completes the collection of cello samples played by Tina Guo with a second volume offering new articulations.

Tina Guo Volume 2 completes the Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato bank by providing additional articulations, including spiccato, marcato, sul ponticello, vibrato pizzicato and harmonics. This new edition should also facilitate your melodic passages by offering more agility, faster playing with less vibrato.

To produce this new volume, Tina Guo used the same cello and the teams worked at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles using the same microphones and the same mixing as for the original collection.

The graphic interface in Kontakt and the Kontakt Player allows you to adjust the legato speed, the volume of the release, the reverb, to vary the movements of the bow and even to bring a little surprise in the reading thanks to a function of randomization. The modulation wheel will finally be used to control the overall dynamics and know that the instrument is NKS compatible.

Tina Guo vol. 2 is a valuable expansion of the original Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato library that uses the same unique seamless recording and programming techniques. The legato of flight. 2 allows for more nimble melodic passages and additional articulations such as spiccato, marcato, harmonics, sul ponticello, and pizzicato vibrato. Combining volume 2 with the original library results in a complete combination of Tina's solo acoustic cello.

A completely new product

How is Tina Guo vol 2 different from Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato?

The main difference is the playing style. Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato is characterized by a romantic and expressive playing style that lends itself well to longer melodic lines. Tina Guo vol 2 allows for an agile and more connected style of play. Also, faster playing naturally allows less time for vibrato on passing notes. Volume 2 also features other articulations that are not available in the original library (see below).

Otherwise, Tina played the same instrument at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, recorded with the same microphones as the original library. Tim Starnes recreated the same mix as the original library as well as the desktop mix from the Scoring Stage.

 

Articulations

• Attack overlay

Selecting this option adds a staccato attack overlay to the beginnings of the sustains. Its volume depends on the speed. They appear at higher speeds. Support attack is also speed sensitive.

• Legato

Selecting this option enables monophonic harmonization with recorded legato transitions. Unselected allows polyphonic sustain samples only. Legato transitions are velocity sensitive.

• ∞ Bow

Unselected, this includes Tina's natural bow changes on sustained notes. Selected, it allows you to lengthen the arc length as needed. Just re-attack a note when you need a change of bow on the same note.

• Volume of releases

This controls the volume of released notes. If set too high, it will sound like it has too much reverb and decay. Too low a setting will make legato transitions sound unnatural.

• Legato Speed ​​(CC02)

Higher settings allow for faster reading. Lower settings allow for slower playback and will reveal more of the recorded legato transition.

• Mod Wheel

The modulation wheel controls the overall dynamics.

 

Other articulations include:

• Open Strings - attaches to the 4 open strings of the cello

• Sul Ponticello

• Harmonics

• Spiccato

• Marcato - an elongated espressivo-style short

• Pizzicato Vibrato

Instrument details

CINESAMPLES ADAPTIVE LEGATO ENGINE

CineBrass PRO v1.5 has been rebuilt from the ground up to include the Legacy CineSamples adaptive engine featured in CineStrings SOLO, CineStrings CORE, and CineWinds CORE and PRO.

It allows you to tailor the legato response to your own playing style, and is designed to respond musically to your performance.

The engine detects your game speed and intelligently adjusts the interval speed to match it.

This means you can play slow, expressive lines and fast passages in a single performance, without touching the speed dial. Additionally, the Intensity parameter responds to velocity.

 

PATCH CHANGE

The Horns Ensemble Stopped and Fluttered has been split into two different patches: Horn Ensemble Stopped and Horn Ensemble Fluttered

 

List of fixes

Once again we have assembled the most talented crew and musicians in Los Angeles to bring you something truly remarkable.

At the heart of this expansion is the finest collection of brass soloists ever sampled. Today's premier chairs in Hollywood are recorded in Sony's unrivaled MGM Scoring Stage space by famed engineer Dennis Sands.

This quartet of soloists (trumpet, F horn, trombone and tuba) received a full treatment including real legato, shorts and multiple dynamic layers.

You will be immediately surprised by the power, expressiveness and clarity produced by these virtuosos. Under the direction of renowned composer/violinist Michael Levine was born a set of cinematic effects perfectly designed for convenient realization in your sequencer.

CineSamples Cinebrass goes Sound

Not that the previous ones weren't heard, but this new edition of the brass ensembles offers a different sound.

CineSamples has therefore just started the sale of CineBrass Sonore, a new variant of its bank of orchestral brass instruments played "sonoro", that is to say with a lot of resonance and body. The designer thus wanted to obtain a dense, harmonious and warm sound.

CineSamples adds that it re-recorded the trumpet and horn sections, maximizing the sound in order to achieve a more open and wide result. The legato has also been improved for all instruments, the number of which has also been increased compared to the Core edition.

The brass ensembles were recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures studios in Los Angeles and will be used in the full version of Kontakt 5.

The bank offers four microphone positions that you can mix (to surround), a reverb with presets and a tape saturation effect.

Presentation:

CineHarps is a carefully sampled collection of orchestral harps that are easy to use and packed with techniques and features that will make them a classic in any composer's template. Recorded with a wide variety of styles on the legendary MGM stage at Sony Pictures studios in Los Angeles, CineHarps will fit seamlessly into any mix.

CineHarps includes the addition of a new perspective mode. When Perspective mode is enabled, a slider appears and crossfades between the microphone's Close, Room, and Surround positions. This slider is automatically associated with the mode dial, allowing you to instantly control the relative depth of the instrument.

Gliss mode transposes all white keys according to the selected notes and pedal diagram. This makes it easy to play glissandi on the white keys. When the Gliss Mode button is active, note attacks in faster phrases are slightly attenuated. The faster you play, the softer the attack.

Tip: By activating Gliss mode and leaving the pedals in C major, you can play chromatically, but you can also soften the attack of each note in the faster phrases, which makes it possible to obtain trills, bisbigliandi and other more realistic game types.

Presentation:

To make cineHarpsichord, the CineSamples team recorded a Franco-Flemish Iohannes Rόckers Colmar harpsichord from 1624 at the MGM Scoring Stage. They then made the virtual instrument for Kontakt and the Kontakt Player, which has four stops and three patches very different characters.

The first patch, 01 CineHarpsichord, includes Full, Close, Room and Surround mic mixes as well as various presets, including a custom mix that you can save. The close mics have been delayed to align the signals to those in the room and surround positions.

The second patch, 02 Baroque, offers a more silky, distant and ambient sound, the stereo image here is manageable via a single fader.

Finally, the 03 Vintage favors proximity and adds tape emulation and discrete analog processing, including a Chandler EQ and tube harmonic processing.

CineHarpsichord also includes a new Perspective Mode function, which allows crossfades between microphone positions, to be controlled via a dedicated slider which is mapped to the modulation wheel. You can also manage the number of round robins for each dynamic layer and the volume of the release samples.

CinePerc PRO is a fundamentally useful part of our large CinePerc library.

Like all "Cine" libraries, CinePerc was recorded at the SONY Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and mixed by master engineer Dennis Sands.

Patches will expand your compositing toolbox and combine perfectly with all other "Cine" series libraries.

One of the highlights of the CinePerc PRO library is the addition of a massive drum kit.

The main thing that sets these kits apart from other kits is the room it was recorded in. You have a kit that was sampled in the same room that thousands of great orchestral pieces were recently recorded in.

This drum kit has a legendary history and has been used on hundreds of hit movie scores as well as some rock albums.

There are several options in the mixer, including a Quad + LFE (4.1) to get the exact sound you're looking for, whether it's a tight, tight sound, or a more ambient sound from "orchestra mix", this kit can be used in any style of music.

CinePerc innovates by adding a new "LFE / SUB" channel. With the QUAD, you can finalize a final 4.1 mix for large cinemas.

With the LFE channel (on most instruments), CinePerc adds the standard full mix of Dennis Sands, Close, Overhead, Mid Room, Room and Surrounds. When the LFE is created (for low frequency instruments), the Room and Surround transform into a QUAD Front and a QUAD rear chain creating a perfect 4.1 environment, specially remixed by Dennis Sands. Different microphone positions can drastically change your mix, this also underlines the versatility of our library.

Engine

The possibilities are limitless. We've created a series of patches in a few categories to give you a start. Try a totally different sample in one of our patches and create your own!

 

Categories of patches:

• Pulses (tonal and atonal)

• Textures (tonal and atonal)

• One Shots

• Pads

 

Sound design

Keep in mind that high values ​​of some of the settings below will tax your CPU heavily. This is why some patches may not work properly in a fully loaded model.

There are 2 pages: MOTOR and FX.

From the ENGINE page, choose your sound sample from 25 categories in the drop-down menus at the top. The sound sample is displayed in the waveform window at the top.

• AUTO MAP forces the sample to conform to the A440 standard of your keyboard. When disabled, the sample plays as is in Middle C.

• POSITION places the playhead at the desired starting point in the sound sample when you press a key.

• SMOOTH adjusts the playhead position more smoothly.

• VOLUME controls grain volume. Various settings can lead to a wide range of output levels.

• The MOTION command is used to move the grains. It determines the amount of movement (forward or backward) from the START POSITION. Lower values ​​focus on a smaller area of ​​the sound sample, resulting in a smoother texture. +100% is a real-time reading.

• DENSITY determines how many grains of the sample are played per second. Higher values ​​result in a smoother, fuller sound. *Higher DENSITY values ​​also increase CPU usage.

 

RAND DENSITY shuffles and randomizes the timing of each grain based on the DENSITY setting. It is a non-quantized reading of the grains towards a more humanized reading. Higher values ​​prevent phasing and comb filtering.

 

Click on TEMPO SYNC for rhythmic synchronization with your DAW. DENSITY now adjusts the number of grains per bar. For tempo sync patches to work in Kontakt standalone, the transport must be running for live quantization to work.

CineSamples lifts the veil on a newcomer and it turns out to be a rather atypical instrument: a viola da gamba.

This fretted bowed instrument has 6 strings and appeared for the record for the first time in Spain in the 15th century.

The viola da gamba was a very popular instrument during the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Once again CineSamples has pulled out all the stops to deliver impeccable quality to this product. Recorded at the MGM studios in Los Angeles, the latter is available in Kontakt format.

Many articulations are proposed as well as a True Legato mode in order to offer the most realistic rendering possible.

The editor has gone so far as to transcribe the changes in direction of the bow and even offers the possibility of synchronizing it to the tempo of your project.

The "Infinite Bow" function will allow you to obtain a prolonged sustain which will not necessarily be natural, but which can find its full meaning on particularly slow tempi.

Presentation:

These deep voices recorded by CineSamples descend from the North into your musical compositions for the image in Kontakt.

Voices of War - Men of the North is a new collection for Kontakt and the Kontakt Player made at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles. CineSamples has therefore enlisted the services of a linguist in Old Scandinavian, the language spoken by the Vikings, in order to obtain sentences which, as is often the case, do not resemble the false Latin used by many voice banks. The vocabulary used here is mainly borrowed from the fields of war, nature and divinities.

Men of the North is based on a baritone choir but whose range is wide enough to go from almost overtone singing (Tuva) to falsetto. The singers were arranged in a semi-circle around a Neumann KU100 dummy head which was used for recording.

The collection includes mono "Oo", "Ah" in legato and sustain, vowel "morphs", whispered words, roars, fourths, fifths, unison legato incantations... A builder is also included to build phrases, and depending on the patches, available mixes (Tight, Dragonborne, Head and Full Spectrum) and settings, you can also generate drones and sound layers. CineSamples also invites you to use the wheels of your keyboard.

CineSamples is proud to present our new line of libraries - The WORLD SERIES!

The first part introduces the Dulcimer and Zither family, a favored instrument color of composers throughout the ages and around the world.

Recorded at famed Firehouse Recording Studios in Los Angeles, and mixed by acclaimed engineer Tim Starnes, the Dulcimer and Zither library will add stunning brilliance and color to every scoring palette.

The CineSamples WORLD SERIES: Dulcimer & Zither is a library unmatched in sound and flexibility due to choice of instruments and recording technique.

The library was designed by composers, for composers, with expert advice from leading film music professionals during its development.

The library has been meticulously recorded and designed by Tim Starnes, one of the most experienced and recognized music publishers around the world. He has worked with most current and former Hollywood A-list composers. His participations include productions such as King Kong (2005), The Lord of the Rings II & III (2002, 2003), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Remember Me (2010), Twilight: Eclipse (2010 ), Hugo (2011), and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011).

After past successful collaborations such as "Drums of War", CineSamples is proud to once again have the chance to have him as recording engineer on this library.

The studios used for Dulcimer & Zither - Firehouse Recording Studios - offer an equally impressive pedigree, having recorded music for countless movies, TV shows and industry veterans such as Aretha Franklin, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Randy Newman, among others.

 

Features :

About Patches

All patches usually contain hits and/or Snapshots recorded at different dynamics with up to 10 round robins.

Depending on the instrument, we recorded samples using different mallets, hammers, bows, plectrums and fingers in multiple mic positions.

Users can choose from 3 microphone positions:

• Close, Room and Full Mix which contains a mix of Close/Room and additional microphones. We have also carefully chosen the instruments

which needed to be recorded in order to ensure the best sound quality.

The most prominent choice was the dulcimer piano which was chromatically sampled (10RR) to reproduce the typical stereo image of the instrument. We also auditioned several mallets and made the most relevant and artistic choices.

 

In addition to general GUI functions such as Delay, Reverb and Envelope Control, we also present our own arpeggiator with this library.

This feature will give users control over alternate arpeggio modes, including the ability to sync to the host tempo in the user's DAW of choice.

Presentation:

The Loft Piano is an exquisitely sampled upright piano. Sampled in, you guessed it, a loft. It's a perfect Kontakt piano for a wide range of genres. We love using it for bedroom pop (Billie Eilish vibes) as well as Future Bass, House, Hip Hop, and of course, Film Score.

We wanted to create a piano that was both characterful and studio-like. Most piano plugins or Kontakt piano libraries are either one or the other.

Character pianos often only work in a limited range of songs, while more versatile pianos can sound mundane and boring.

The Loft Piano for Kontakt can be one or the other. It comes with 5 Snap Shots for Kontakt so you can easily access 5 distinct and unique versions of the piano. We also created a soft patch as a bonus to the main sound.

We used two large-diaphragm condenser microphones (Nuemann UI 87) and two pencil condensers to capture the source recordings. Over 1,500 samples.

Perfect bass starts here... 808 and sub bass for Kontakt!

Finding the perfect 808 can be tricky, but that's no longer the case. We created Sub Zero 808 because we as producers wanted a better and faster way to make 808s. In total we created over 200 presets for this library, and only the best of the best.

All the commands you need in a simple interface.

Presentation of 3 types of presets:

• 808s - These are your classic, heavy, beat-defining 808s that you would normally expect from a library like Sub Zero 808.

• No Kicks- Every 808 comes with a “No Kick” version which is perfect when your track already has a kick you like.

• Clean Subs- Sometimes you just need a simple yet complete sub, that's why we created this category. Ideal for different genres of EDM.

Each preset is configured and ready for your bass line. We give you the freedom to work with these 808s however you want. Almost every patch will work forever if you need it. Simply turn the sustain knob and hold the note.

The Sub Zero 808 does all the work for you so you can focus on what you do best: writing music. The 808s are unique. They change and evolve more than any other sound we could think of. The trending 808s in 2020 are nothing like what everyone was aiming for in 2017. That's why we add new presets to the Sub Zero 808 every year for free.

Demo here.

Presentation:

LEONID BASS is the deeply sampled adventure of an incredible double bass (made in Italy in the 1700s), played by accomplished bassist Leonid Finkelshteyn.

As the 4th album in the INTIMATE STRINGS series, Leonid Bass stems from the work of Friedlander Violin, Blakus Cello and Fischer Viola.

Embertone sampled Lenny with depth and precision unmatched in his company's history, capturing more detail and articulation content than in previous releases.

One of the most exciting things about this bass is the richness and clarity of the low frequencies.

 

Description of the instrument

Leonid Bass therefore joins the Friedlander Violin, Blakus Cello and Fischer Viola, created specifically for Kontakt 5, and it is also pre-mapped for Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol serie S keyboards.

This new double bass bank includes nearly 6,000 sound samples in 16 or 24 bits / 44.1 kHz stereo and custom scripts developed by Andreas Lemke.

Leonid Bass lets you enjoy different playing types including true legato, true portamento, con sordino, sul ponticello and pizzicatos.

You will also find harmonics and can control dynamics and timbre, including morphing options.

 

Features of the instrument

• Color Morphing

Live string players produce a wide range of tone colors by choosing where their bow passes between bridge and fingerboard. This instrument gives you that control!

 

• Vibrato improvements

Organic, emotional and fully controllable vibrato experience.

 

• CPU/RAM efficiency

There have been some crucial tweaks to our script, as well as big tweaks to group scheduling.

Leonid Bass is lighter on RAM, and more efficient with its DC handling

 

• Intuitive controls

• LOW RAM MODE

Instead of cluttering up your hard drive with a bunch of files and patches, we've added a simple LO RAM button to the interface.

When pressed, the speed control script is bypassed with even more RAM savings without audio quality degradation.

 

• OSC KEY MODE

If you are using Touch OSC, there is now a button directly on the GUI to sync all your CC settings.

 

• SPEED CONTROL

If you don't want speed control, save RAM by turning it off. Samples still sound good and you save a lot of RAM.

 

One of the "flagship" features of the Leonid Bass is the "Dynamic Phase-Aligned Morphing" between the pp and ff legato layers.

This allows you to seamlessly fade through both transitions and sustains at any time during playback.

It sounds great across the 16-20dB dynamic range that the expression control provides, depending on the sag position.

 

Technical characteristics

• True Legato / Slurs / Slides bow change

• Dynamic phase-aligned morphing

• Watermarked for protection

• Improved Vibrato motor

• CPU/RAM improvements

• True legato programming + true Portamento

• + with Sordino + sul Ponticello + pizzicatos

• Kontakt script by Andreas Lemke

• Nearly 6000 recorded samples

After a first foray in 2012 with IVORY WIND, the American publisher is back with a product dedicated exclusively to the flute. But I should rather say to the flutes since you will have 5 in total! All the instruments used for the recording of "Recorders" have been meticulously selected. All have been handcrafted to deliver the best sound quality in their respective categories. "Recorders" is a sound bank in Kontakt format but only owners of the full version will be able to enjoy it.

Embertone gratifies us once again with a kontakt instrument with multiple qualities. The first is sound quality. The 5 instruments offered have been particularly well made and allow you to evolve in different musical styles. The sound reproduction is also in keeping with scripts that are still just as efficient! If your sound library doesn't have flutes, now is the time to treat yourself to this sound library!

Presentation:

The bawu is a Chinese wind instrument. Although shaped like a flute, it is actually a free-reed instrument, with a single metal reed. It is played transversely (horizontally). It has a pure timbre, similar to that of the clarinet, and its playing technique includes the use of a lot of ornamentation, especially "bendinous" tones.

The bawu has a clear timbre, similar to that of the clarinet, and its playing technique involves the use of a large number of patterns, in particular "bending" tones. Bawu is also closely associated with Hmonq, Yi, Hani, and other minority cultures in southwestern China. It is generally used as a solo instrument and often appears in film scores; it is also sometimes heard in recordings of popular music.

Although the bawu is still mainly played in China, it has been adopted in recent years by European composers and performers.

Presentation:

Offering supreme content and groundbreaking technological innovation, Broadway Big Band - Kontakt Edition™ is a virtual instrument from Fable Sounds™ with a whopping 100 Gigabytes of audio content and a unique set of powerful features. Explosive with character and personality, Broadway Big Band - Kontakt Edition™ has established itself as the ultimate virtual instrument for brass, reed instruments and the contemporary rhythm section. With multiple microphone configurations, whether for stage or studio use, contemporary or vintage, Broadway Big Band™ can do it all. It has been used by top industry professionals on major albums, live shows, and high-profile film, television, and theater projects. Putting the most detailed, realistic, versatile and playable instruments at your fingertips, Broadway Big Band™ is an indispensable tool for creating Jazz, Funk, Pop, Blues, R&B, Latin, Hip-Hop , and more...

A revolutionary device allowing polyphonic, polyrhythmic and polyphonic legato on a mixed section of instruments. Thanks to the RTO, you can play an entire section of the keyboard, and the notes you play are orchestrated in real time and distributed to the various instruments of the multi RTO, according to orchestration schemes that you can create yourself. It is an extremely powerful and easy to use system. Ideal for live shows, as well as tracking under tight deadlines. It also offers articulation presets that can replace the built-in key switch with alternate midi triggers such as foot switches, freeing up your left hand to play notes rather than touch controls.

From now on, you can use any of Broadway's Big Band wind instruments multiple times in the arrangement or in a multi, even in unison, creating a realistic multi-instrument section.

This means that even with multiple instances of a single instrument, you can still get a realistic section of multiple instruments playing in unison. This isn't some sort of doubling effect, but rather using different samples and light tweaks to ensure that each instance of the instrument sounds a bit different from the next. The results are very realistic. The feature also includes "Humanize" and "Detune" buttons for greater control over the sound of the section.

With version 2.0, "Notation mode" was added to all Broadway Big Band instruments, to allow notation programs to communicate with the Broadway Big Band and use it for reading sheet music, including all articulations and dynamics included. The new Notation mode also allows integration with Cubase Expression cards. This was not previously possible due to Broadway Big Band's unique articulation switching system. The new Notation mode uses an alternate key-switching system that is more in line with the way notation programs work.

NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 2.0:

REAL-TIME ORCHESTRATOR (RTO)

A revolutionary device allowing polyphonic and polyrhythmic legato on a mixed section of instruments. Thanks to the RTO, you can play an entire section of the keyboard, and the notes you play are orchestrated in real time and distributed to the various instruments of the multi RTO, according to orchestration schemes that you can create yourself. It is an extremely powerful and easy to use system. Ideal for live shows, as well as tracking under tight deadlines. It also offers articulation presets that can replace the built-in button switch with other midi triggers such as footswitches, freeing up your left hand to play notes rather than button switches.

 

UNISON DIVISION

From now on, you can use any of the Broadway Lites instruments multiple times in the arrangement or in a multi, even in unison, creating a realistic multi-instrument section. This means that even with multiple instances of a single instrument, you can still get a realistic section of multiple instruments playing in unison. This isn't some sort of doubling effect, but rather using different samples and light tweaks to ensure that each instance of the instrument sounds a bit different from the next. The results are very realistic. The feature also includes "Humanize" and "Detune" buttons for greater control over the sound of the section.

 

SCORING SOFTWARE SUPPORT

With version 2.0, "Notation mode" was added to all Broadway Lites instruments, to allow notation programs to communicate with Broadway Lites and use it for reading sheet music, including all included articulations and dynamics. The new Notation mode also allows integration with Cubase Expression cards. This was previously not possible due to Broadway Lites unique articulation switching system. The new Notation mode uses an alternate keyed swapping system that is more in line with the way notation programs work. (Full documentation in the user manual).

 

SPEED CURVE CONTROL

Due to the extended dynamic range of the instruments included in the Broadway Lites, it is sometimes difficult to maintain control over the dynamics when using velocity from a MIDI keyboard. To help overcome this issue, we've added a new knob to control the velocity curve, which allows you to adjust the responsiveness of Broadway Lites instruments to different MIDI keyboards. The new Velocity Curve Control feature can also be automated over MIDI to make changes in a song if needed.

NEW ARTICULATION ADDED TO TENOR SAXOPHONE 1

FP+Vibrato, added as a temporary articulation and in combination with the existing "Strong Vibrato" articulation, as a new "Deep Vibrato" playing mode.

Presentation:

This library contains 5 Drum Libraries.

- Invasion: Invasion is our most extreme drum library in every sense of the word. More drums, more cymbals, and even more features!

All those drums, cymbals and features with the same attention to detail:

Invasion is a drum library (with full NKS integration) and can be used with the Kontakt player.

• An intuitive and complete user interface to create your drum sounds.

• Built-in groove player

• Built-in processing and reverb

• Envelope and pitch control for each mixer channel

 

Our largest battery configuration yet!

Seven snares, four kicks, twelve toms and thirty cymbals from different manufacturers.

The whole kit is tuned to perfection, so you never have to worry about muted notes in your mix.

Each sample is phase coherent for easy layering.

 

- Modern and Massive: From radio rock to thrash metal and everything in between, Modern & Massive has you covered. Huge sounding drums, with tons of punch and bass.

• A welcome addition to any sample collection

• Cymbal and snare control matrix

• Nine snares, six kicks, fourteen toms and ten cymbals from different drum manufacturers.

 

- One Kit Wonder Aggressive Rock: The One Kit Wonder series was inspired by the many GGD users who use our libraries to write songs. We know how crucial it is to waste as little time as possible between when inspiration strikes and when you are able to capture it, and how important it is that you can hear your ideas ringing. in a precise and professional manner to keep you excited as you develop them.

Each One Kit Wonder is captured in the same level of detail as our other libraries, but comes fully mixed and ready to go, so you can dive straight into songwriting creativity and hear your ideas ringing out right away. incredible way.

One Kit Wonder: Aggressive Rock was designed with the aim of providing an extremely powerful sounding kit suitable for contemporary heavy rock. Inspired by bands like Beartooth, we chose a small setup of low tuned drums and punchy, slightly trashy cymbals. Where these drum sounds differ from the norm is that there are no layered single samples - it's a single drum set tuned, designed and mixed to provide the attack. brutal and shotgun-style room vibe that conveys the power and aggressiveness necessary for the style.

 

- One Kit Wonder Modern Fusion: This particular kit, One Kit Wonder: Modern Fusion is inspired by contemporary progressive fusion artists, whose music demands a clean, bright drum sound that nevertheless retains an organic timbre and wide dynamic range. The snare and toms are punchy yet musical, while the kick can offer a punchy attack or a thud depending on the dynamic range used. The cymbals are shimmering and hi-fi, but also possess an underlying dark complexity and touch sensitivity.

 

- One Kit Wonder Metal: One Kit Wonder: Metal is designed to combine the best elements of big budget metal productions of the early and mid 2000s, with the new levels of natural power, realism and finish that we can find in modern drum sounds. He's a metal chameleon, not limited to any particular subgenre, and equally at home with backbeats as 250bpm.

Heavyocity - Forzo Modern Brass

Size: 14,7 Go

Configuration: Kontakt 5.8.1

NKS Compatible: YES

Demo here.

Presentation:

From John Williams to Hans Zimmer, orchestral brass has been a source of strength and power in the modern era of film music. FORZO: Heavyocity's Modern Brass was done in this image. Recorded at legendary Skywalker Sound, FORZO is the product of Heavyocity's world-class sound design team, in collaboration with award-winning composer Jason Graves and Hollywood sound engineer Satoshi Mark Noguchi. This dream team entered the hallowed halls of Skywalker with one goal in mind: to create a new benchmark for orchestral brass.

To bring this monster to life, FORZO first assembled an epic ensemble of world-class horns. The 12 horns, four trumpets, eight trombones (tenor, bass and double bass) and two tubas deliver 25 GB of pure copper power straight into the hands of the cinematic composer. Creative articulations like Cluster Bends and Random Flutters give muscular sections in a very unique way. And if you really want to master those explosive Brass VIs, the FORZO Full Ensemble NKI puts the entire 26-piece brass orchestra (playing at the same time, in the same room) at your fingertips. You've heard brass, but not like this. FORZO: Modern Brass is truly beyond the ordinary.

 

While FORZO's Organic Brass is best in class, the instrument's 300+ presets wouldn't be complete without a diverse collection of hybrid cinematic content and tempo-synced loops. Once again, Heavyocity has taken a collection of meticulously recorded samples and created something totally new: FORZO's hybrid side blazes a new trail for the modern composer, as creative processing and expert sound design crosses the line. fine line between organic and electronic.

The new Heavyocity Forzo Modern Brass features 11,475 sound samples compiled into 9 NKI instrument presets. For this, the team called on composer Jason Graves (Tomb Raider, Dead Space, Far Cry Primal) and sound engineer specializing in film music, Satoshi Mark Noguchi (Midnight Special, Lone Survivor), while this beautiful world having found itself at Skywalker Sound (where the soundtracks of The Fountain, Dead Space 2, Gears of War were recorded).

You are thus entitled to the traditional French horns, trumpets, tenor/bass/double bass trombones, tubas, with hundreds of articulations available, but also to a set of 26 instruments and two design tools: the Hybrid Brass Designer and the Brass Loop Designer, the first offering an approach that combines music and sound design and allows you to combine sounds, while the second offers more than 400 tempo-synchronized brass loops that you can assign to different parts of your keyboard.

The NKS-compatible collection for Kontakt 5.8.1 lets you mix three sounds also offers a Cycle page to take advantage of advanced granular and rhythmic playback features, a Macro knob lets you control multiple parameters dynamically, and you'll be able to apply filter effects , distortion, chorus, delay, reverb, gate, equalization…

The Fredonia Grand Organ puts the power and majesty of a full pipe organ at your fingertips with unparalleled depth and range.

39 stops that can be combined for an infinity of possible sounds.

Featuring one of the biggest sounds you've ever used, easily adjustable from delicate to almost cosmic scale.

To create the great Fredonia organ, we sampled SUNY Fredonia's beautiful Schlicker pipe organ. Every pipe organ has a unique voice, and this one has a particularly powerful sound with incredible versatility.

 

Capturing the nuance and fullness of a pipe organ is no small feat, but such a grand instrument deserves special attention. We've replicated many of the features of a real organ, including crescendo and swell controls, so it sounds like the real thing. Its 2,469 pipes have been sampled deep with four pickup positions and four registers (Swell, Positive, Pedal and Great).

 

We sampled each set - a total of 39 - individually to give you full control over the sound of the instrument. Combine any or all of these to customize the tone as desired. Additionally, we've emulated the behavior of the instrument's six couplers, so you can add or subtract octaves at the press of a button. What if you're looking for brilliant sound right out of the box? We've provided a range of powerful presets with different combinations of stops and signal chains in our Console FX rack and mixer. From the delicately voiced rohrflφte to the crushing thunder of the entire choir instrument, the Fredonia Grand Organ will take your breath away.

This instrument was played by master bassist, composer and session musician Tony Dickinson, who brought considerable experience and skill to the recording of the library, both from a performer's and producer's perspective. To capture the purest, roundest DI sound possible, we used a Universal Audio Solo/610 analog tube for maximum fat, punch and warmth. Every string has been exhaustively and detailed recorded on every fret at multiple dynamics, with up to 8x round robin (RR) variations per note.

Now, with the included Console FX rack and mixer, you don't even need any external plugins to mix and process the instrument; just pick from the dozens of included presets and you're ready to rip. Each articulation can be mapped or triggered as desired using Total Articulation Control Technology 2.0 (TACT). There are more ways to tweak and play these articulations than ever before: dynamic level adjustment of layer levels and mutes, velocity per articulation to volume, strum mode, and much more.

In this new installment in the latest Shreddage 3 series for Kontakt, you'll enjoy a flatwound five-string Precision bass.

Shreddage 3 Precision for Kontakt 5 lets you play this 5-string Precision Bass finger, pick and slap, with staccatos, mutes, hammer-ons and pull-offs, slides, harmonics and trills .

The virtual instrument incorporates all the elements of the recent Shreddage 3 engine, in particular the Poly Input function for playing chords, the Strumming tab for generating rhythms, the Console with its modular rack of around thirty effects, the Tact 2 articulation mapping and 28 Console snapshots are also included.

Shreddage 3 Precision was created to be the ultimate, versatile virtual bass capable of playing in any genre, with all the techniques used by a real bass player. We spent months planning the perfect instrument and recording setup: bassist Tony Dickinson (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) performed all the samples using a high-pitched 5-string American p-bass. level, flat-stringed for beautiful, detailed sound. A fully analog UA|610 DI was used to enhance the warmth and fullness of each note.

 

For basic playing techniques, we captured fingering, hand and slap games with lots of dynamics and round-robins. Add to that taps, pops, hammer-on/pull-offs, slides, buzz trills and harmonics, and the result is a super playable instrument that can handle almost any riff you throw at it. Whether you're writing rock, metal, pop, funk, jazz, or blues, Shreddage 3 Precision fits any mix.

 

Of course, this instrument also includes the same features as all Shreddage 3 instruments: a very realistic virtual bass player engine (with multiple fretting and performance algorithms), the modular Console FX rack, and the TACT 2.0 tab for fully configurable articulation. It is also fully NKS compatible for Komplete Kontrol & Maschine users

And to inaugurate this brand new sound engine for Kontakt, Impact Soundworks chose a Fender Stratocaster.

Impact Soundworks to launch Shreddage 3 Stratus, a new electric guitar sample bank for Kontakt featuring the next generation of the in-house Shreddage engine.

The Shreddage 3 engine will be applied to guitars and basses, starting with a Stratocaster guitar.

The Shreddage 3 engine has been completely recoded in order to exploit all the tools available in version 5.7 of Kontakt (Kontakt 6 has just been released, it will certainly be necessary to wait for an update or the following banks to exploit the new Native effects in particular) .

The novelties include the improvement of the "virtual hand" which manages the position of the fingers, with the possibility of automating the choice of the string and the fret to be played.

New "fretting" algorithms and the possibility of setting the range of frets will make it possible to adapt the playing, and therefore the sound and the realism, to the different styles.

Impact Soundworks has also listened to users and simplified chord playing with a new Strumming engine: the low notes of the keyboard are reserved for configuring the chord and the high notes for triggering the strum, with the addition of a "Partial Strums" function. " which allows not to strum all the strings, or the possibility of choosing single notes in the chord.

Another big chunk of this new generation, a Console makes an appearance so you can mix all four channels/mix mics; There are 8 inserts per channel, eight send channels and a modular effects rack with 30 effects (amps and pedals, EQs, modulation, dynamics processing).

The section dedicated to virtual cabinets is also getting a makeover and will offer new impulse responses from 8 cabinets (Mesa/Boogie, Marshall, Fender, Vox, etc.) captured with at least two microphones (dynamic and condenser) and two positions (full axis and off-axis). IRs from Shreddage 2 will also be included.

To finish with the new features, a preset manager will allow you to use settings in other Shreddage 3 banks.

Which brings us to the bank management system, Impact Soundworks also aiming for simplicity. The developer eventually wants to integrate all of its current (and hopefully new) virtual basses and guitars into the Shreddage 3 series.

Indigisounds - Chutney And Tassa

Configuration: Kontakt 5.7.3

NKS Compatible: YES

Presentation:

A musical journey through the history of Trinidad and Tobago΄s

In the aftermath of the abolition of slavery in the Caribbean, indentured laborers from the East Indies arrived with another culture in the melting pot of the West Indies. The most important element they brought with them was their musical identity. East Indian indentured laborers came mainly from the Hindu belt to cultivate the sugar plantations, mainly in Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname and Guyana.

This sample library includes the two major musical subgenres that emerged in the history of West Indian Creole musical innovations, both the result of the presence of East Indian immigrants in the Caribbean.

Chutney music evolved from Bhojpuri folk music. The main instruments used are the harmonium, the dhantal and the dholak. This traditional Chutney is the original and organic form of expression of the Indian diaspora in the Caribbean. Chutney's melodies and beats have evolved over the years to accommodate changing technology and tastes while evolving with advancements in the carnival industry, giving rise to the crossover genre of Chutney-Soca. However, Chutney still retains the frenetic rhythms of the dholak, the melodic passages and soothing hums of the harmonium as well as the traditional melodies and arrangements. At your fingertips is a library of authentic dholak, dhantal, and harmonium samples and loops. Vocal samples of ad-libs and popular expressions are also included to help you bring that instant cachet to your productions.

Tassa drums evolved from the Plains of North and Central India. The main instruments used are the Dhol or bass drum, the Caribbean equivalent of the nagara known as the kutter drum, and the Jhanj cymbal. Tassa's infectious beat has become synonymous with partying in the Twin Islands Republic. The thundering bass accompanied by the piercing kutter awakens the body to put itself at its service. The Tassa is the mainstay of all traditional Indian weddings and festivities. It now adapts perfectly to any audio production. Its contagious effect can be applied to all percussive sets and ideas.
