Embertone Joshua Bell Violin Recensione

https://www.embertone.com/instruments/joshuabellviolin.php

 

Embertone set out to create a new standard in virtual solo strings, offering plenty of inspiration without sacrificing flexibility… and with the unmistakable, iconic sound of internationally acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell.

The instrument offers a huge variety of standard articulations, like sustains, pizzicatos, staccatos, spiccatos, and more, along with a number of sample sets you’re not likely to find anywhere else. Joshua performed an incredible set of eerie harmonics transitions, and a set of “ultra-flautando”, a special technique he can harness from his 300+ year-old violin.

Though this VI is incredibly complex, featuring almost 20,000 individual samples, it’s designed to be simple to use. Play it straight out of the box and it will inspire and surprise you! This virtual violin utilizes intelligent and predictive programming using a diverse array of musical tendencies and rule sets. And with 12 complete “legato”/transition types, you can perform the Joshua Bell violin at various tempos, dynamics, in different styles, while retaining an authentic performance!

Grammy® winner Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated winning violinists of his era, and his restless curiosity, passion, and multi-faceted musical interests are unparalleled in the world of classical music. With more than 40 CDS recorded of classical repertoire as well as soundtracks including the Oscar® winning score for The Red Violin, Bell has been embraced by wide television audiences with appearances ranging from The Tonight Show, Tavis Smiley, Charlie Rose, to CBS Sunday Morning and Sesame Street. He was one of the first classical artists to have a music video on VH1 and he was the subject of a BBC Omnibus documentary.

Bell has appeared in publications ranging from The Strad and Gramophone to Time, The New York Times, People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, GQ, Vogue and Reader’s Digest among many. Bell performs on the world’s most precious stages from Carnegie Hall 33 times to the Hollywood Bowl with his 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin and his late 18th century French bow by François Tourte.

The 1713 ‘Huberman’ Stradivari violin now owned by Joshua Bell has a thrilling history. Formerly known as the ‘Gibson’ Strad, the violin was twice stolen from the Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman and for nearly 50 years remained undiscovered in plain sight, disguised by its thief – a café violinist named Julian Altman who made a deathbed confession to his wife.

After Altman’s death, his wife had the violin authenticated and reported to the proper authorities. The fiddle was then sold to Norbert Brainin, an acclaimed English violinist, who later decided to sell the violin to a dealer who had an investor eyeing it for a museum piece. Then Joshua stepped in, showing great empathy for its rightful owner, Bronislaw Huberman, who had passed away in 1947, and for the instrument which he felt must be played.

In Bell’s words, “The idea of the violin resting silently in a vault made me ill. This was an instrument meant to be played, not just admired.” He purchased the violin for nearly $4 million, selling his own $2 million 1732 Tom Taylor Strad in the process. The rest is history, and Joshua uses the instrument exclusively to this day!

Soundiron Theremin+ Recensione

 

theremin_3D_box_03_1024x1024

The Soundiron THEREMIN+ is an advanced library based on the classic sound and feel of the legendary Theremin, but with a huge twist and a wealth of additional sound-designed pads, leads, ambiences and atmospheres. Our Theremin+ behaves as close to a Theremin as you can get on a keyboard, smoothly gliding between monophonic notes with variable speed. The Glide knob allows you to adjust the speed of the glide between notes and when set to 0, turns this otherwise monophonic instrument into a full polyphonic sound creator! The Theremin+ includes a number of real Theremin samples, generated tones, and a plethora of carefully crafted sounds, designed from a wide array of sources.

 

The Theremin+ is packed with features not typically found on a Theremin. The waveform selector lets you choose from Sine, Absolute Sine, Triangle, Saw-tooth, or Square. The Add. knob sets the number of simultaneous micro-tuned voices from 1-4. The Sub-layer adds a whole new dimension, giving you the power to mix in any one of the dozens of included pads, leads, drones, and ambiences complete with separate volume and pitch controls.

Our custom scripted Kontakt user interface comes equipped with flexible control features, like volume swell, glide, pitch, vibrato, attack, release, and an additional Sub-layer selection menu with separate volume and pitch controls, giving you tons of sonic possibilities. There’s also a complete DSP effects rack, including reverb with over a hundred life-like spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and creative FX convolution impulse responses.

The library is programmed for the full version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OSX 10.9 or later / Windows 7 or later required). It comes equipped with a custom user interface and dynamic sound shaping and mixing controls: attack, edge, release, filter resonance and cut, bank preset loading (with optional key-switching), adaptive arpeggiation and built-in convolution reverb with your choice of well over 100 different rooms, halls, spaces and special FX impulses. All of the samples are also included as categorized and clearly named stereo wave files that can be imported and used in any wav-format compatible audio environment, sampler, editor, sequencer or other audio software you like.

Native Instruments introduces SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2

November 17, 2016, Berlin – Native Instruments today released SESSION

img-ce-strummed-acoustic-2_overview_01_intro-3826120da4e60d7ad1e471b70a5acb25-d

GUITARIST –  STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2, a new addition to the SESSION GUITARIST series. STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 complements the original STRUMMED ACOUSTIC instrument, adding two carefully selected, vintage acoustic guitars – a 6-string Martin and 12-string Guild – plus more strummed patterns and new performance controls. STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 runs in
KONTAKT 5 and the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER and is available at the NI
Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / ¥ 12,800 / £89 / AU$159.

https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/guitar/session-guitarist-strummed-acoustic-2/

STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 includes two renowned instruments, captured in precise detail and played by skilled session players. Users can choose the warm, mellow tone of a  small-bodied mahogany 6-string from 1934. Or they can select the full yet articulate sound of a benchmark jumbo 12-string – first produced in the late 1960s.
STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 also introduces two new features. ‘Separate Bass’ patterns – played on the lower strings of the 6-string guitar – allows users to add custom bass lines or add extra low notes to chords to create slash chords (e.g. C/E, Dm/A). The Tap Rhythm Finder enables users to quickly find the strumming pattern they need by tapping or playing a rhythm on a keyboard.
STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 includes an extensive library of strumming patterns, with over 50% more content than the original STRUMMED ACOUSTIC  instrument. Each pattern features a rhythmic signature of dynamic accents, perfect for a diverse set of genres from rock, folk, and country, to bluegrass, Latin, pop, and more. Flexible performance controls enable users to recreate the musicality of pro studio guitarists from their keyboard. Sound control features and effects allow users to customize their sound and place the guitar perfectly in a mix.

 

STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 was created in collaboration with drumasonic – the same award-winning sample instrument team who helped produce STRUMMED ACOUSTIC. Using an array of vintage ribbon and condenser microphones plus boutique preamps, drumasonic captured every nuance of these classic
acoustic instruments in perfect detail. A custom-built mounting rig and a laser-based microphone positioning system helped ensure precision and consistency for every chord and pattern during recording.

STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 is available now at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99
€ / ¥ 12,800 / £89 / AU$159.

Cinematic Studio Strings e Piano Recensione

 

http://www.cinematicstudioseries.com/index.html

 

css_box_and_guiCapturing the sound of a Hollywood-style string section seated in position, CSS was recorded meticulously in a world-class scoring stage, and is the first instalment in our forthcoming Cinematic Studio Series. While CS2 gave you a full concert hall sound, with the new series we’ve opted for a more versatile Hollywood studio sound that will be suited to an even wider range of applications. The series will feature the entire orchestra including piano (also out now), solo strings (out soon), brass, woodwind and percussion.

CSS boasts stunning true-to-life dynamics, a wide variety of articulations, and a remarkably realistic legato engine. The combination of beautiful ribbon and condenser microphones, recorded at three mic distances, gives the library a lush and versatile sound out-of-the-box. At the heart of CSS is our intuitive and efficient GUI with its short-but-sweet patch list, easily assignable keyswitches and MIDI CCs, and a full mixer with output routing options and reverb.

With its incredible blend of authenticity and playability, and at the very affordable price of $399, you can have CSS working alongside you on your latest project in no time!

csp_box_and_gui

For the first month, we are giving 50% off our new piano library, Cinematic Studio Piano, as a bonus to purchasers of CSS. CSP was recorded in the same space with the same techniques and is designed to blend seamlessly with the strings. The usual price of CSP will be a very low $69. Both libraries available now for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
