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.

Chris Hein Solo Violin

Quello che ascoltate nel video è il vst !

Quite simply the best virtual violin ever created.

Chris Hein – Solo Violin outshines all previous violin libraries. Never before, a sample library of this extent has been dedicated towards a single string instrument: Recorded with greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI’s Kontakt Player offering an elaborated custom-tailored user-interface with comprehensive scripting. Chris Hein – Solo Violin features high-grade sound quality and incredible realistic articulations. This library offers everything you have been missing with previous virtual string instruments.

You receive over 10.000 samples (4 gigabytes of sample data), 38 articulations, four different legato transitions as well as extensive phase-alignment of all samples t guarantee smooth inaudible crossfades of up to eight velocity layers. This feature-set allows the creation of authentic violin-arrangements unprecedented on a computer.

This library benefits from producer Chris Hein’s 30 years spanning experience in the field of sampling and library production, resulting in a product offering highest versatility, configurability and practical use.

Chris Hein – Solo Violin delivers outstanding, detailed and highly expressive results as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble – in all relevant genres ranging from classical music and film scores to gypsy-jazz, folk and pop ballads.

And there is even more: Chris Hein – Solo Violin provides sound-designers, composers of film- and game soundtracks and experimental musicians with special effect-sounds and uncommon articulations with partly exceptional dynamics, such as flautando, flageolets and ponticello. Therefore, the pitch range of the virtual instrument has been expanded in comparison to the original violin. The special effect sounds are further supported by the internal tenfold DSP-effects-rack. Feel free to create complex sound clusters, dense atmospheres and surreal sound worlds out of a single violin for incredible moments of suspense.

By using the Ensemble Maker, the solo instrument can easily be turned into an ensemble being able to take advantage of all available articulations. A voice division in the stereo image and fine detuning intensifies this effect.

Chris Hein – Solo Violin equally serves demanding string instrument enthusiasts as well as composers needing more than just excellent sounding samples but also comprehensive details, a full offering of articulations and a versatile adaptation to their preferred workflow.

On one hand, the instrument offers a comprehensive full sample set with all articulations being ready to play on the keyboard. Thanks to the library’s modular approach on the other hand, significantly reduced variations may also be called up with fast load times and low memory requirements.

By using the clean start configuration, the instrument is initially loaded in a sustain variation while further articulations and functions can simply be added at any time if needed. This way, you may as well work fluently and efficiently on compact and mobile production systems using a lot less memory.

Chris Hein – Solo Violin reproduces the sound of internationally renowned violinist Naomi Binder and her excellent instrument. Thanks to her incredible hearing and unprecedented precision, paired with artistic discipline and routine, it was possible to accurately capture the violin across its full pitch range (up to F6) in all its dynamic facets from most gentle to loudest tones.

Naomi Binder

Naomi Binder plays the violin and viola in classical concerts as well as in crossover projects.

In numerous solo performances in the Cologne Arena, Dortmund Philharmonic Hall and many other venues in Austria and Japan, she enchants the audience with her virtuosity, empathy and a broad musical range, varying from classical music to pop and jazz.
