Vienna Ensemble Pro 6–Recensione

https://www.vsl.co.at/en/Vienna_Software_Package/Vienna_Ensemble_PRO

Vienna Ensemble Pro has become the definitive cross-platform network solution in studios and production facilities around the world. This mixing and hosting application enables you to set up a multiple computer network with both Macs and PCs without the need for extra MIDI and audio interfaces – all you need is a simple Ethernet cable! Even when you’re using only one computer, Vienna Ensemble Pro improves your work-flow dramatically, with unique functions such as “Preserve” that keeps all your plug-ins and samples loaded while switching from one project to another – a huge time saver!

The Crystal Method

Of course Vienna Ensemble Pro supports Vienna Instruments, but you may also integrate all of your third-party 64-bit and 32-bit VST/AU instruments and effects plug-ins (such as Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, Waves, you name it) and mix them in stereo and surround (up to 7.1), with full parameter automation and optional one-click integration with Vienna MIR Pro. What’s more, with the included Epic Orchestra Sample Pack you get a powerful all-in-one production tool to get you started right away!

Vienna Ensemble Pro 6 is the latest version and comes with a wealth of new features and performance improvements. Please find an overview of all the key features and versions under the Product Comparison menu.

New Features
  • Retina (HiDPI) graphics support on both Mac and PCs
  • Tabbed instances – Improved organization with one common window for all instances, with detachable instances, re-ordering of instances, and tab-coloring for better identification
  • Frozen/Disabled channels allow unloading all plug-ins (including their allocated memory) from a selected channel, while keeping data intact
  • Intelligent auto-save functionality – Auto-saves project in desired intervals, but only when transport is stopped, so it doesn’t interrupt a playing session. Easily recover projects in the event of a crash.
  • VCA folders let you organize your channels conveniently with folders and subfolders that are easy to color-code
  • VST hosting on the Mac, allowing for full compatibility with Windows
  • Channel grouping allows assigning channels to a group, with option to link selected parameters to the entire group
  • “Raise Instance” is now a Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in parameter to enable automation/hardware controller assignment for quick instance access
  • “Auto Raise Instance” option raises the connected Vienna Ensemble Pro instance automatically when you show the Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in
  • New code base for about 70% less CPU usage for all internal Vienna Ensemble Pro calculations
  • Rewritten user interface code resulting in 80% less CPU usage for graphics
  • Improved multi-threading performance for increased plug-in hosting capacity
  • Redesigned, resizable plug-in window and Audio/Event Input Plug-in
  • Faster connection/disconnection times when switching between projects
  • Unified channel model – No more need to create different channels for Vienna Instruments or 3rd party plug-ins. Every channel now has the capability to be a bus, audio input, plug-in channel, Vienna Instruments, Vienna Instruments Pro or Vienna Imperial channel. Drag & drop plug-ins to any channel.
  • In combination with Vienna MIR Pro: Impulse response files loading up to 5 times faster, improved graphical performance (especially under OS X).
  • Mixer Interface Customization allows turning on or off sections in the mixer to suit your needs
  • Transmission of all keys to host – Shortcuts not in use by Vienna Ensemble Pro will be transferred to a connected DAW
  • Miniature view – Channel strips can now be further collapsed
  • Faster plug-in scanning
  • Many more usability improvements throughout the application
Existing Features

Vienna Ensemble Pro comes with 3 licenses for setting up a multi-computer network. One license of the Epic Orchestra sample pack is included as well. Please note that you will not receive an additional license for Epic Orchestra when purchasing the upgrade!

Best Service–Emotional Violin

Best Service Newsletter


Best Service releases “Emotional Violin”

If you are looking for the perfect instrument for film scoring, pop music, songwriting, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, the Emotional Violin is your first choice! A unique, virtual instrument that convinces through its variety of articulations, its direct and unadulterated sound and unusual playing techniques, including rebowing. With its impressive and at the same time emotional sound, it enables expressions that have never been achieved before.

Emotional Violin has been recorded throughout in a musical context to capture the expressiveness and natural bowing of real instrumentalists. The intelligent scripting enables more than 50 different playing styles and True Legato, making this library extremely versatile. In addition to the usual playing styles and articulations, the Emotional Violin also features extraordinary techniques such as:

  • Paganini Run (Legato)

  • Morbid Sustain

  • Riccochet

  • Flautando

  • Sulponti

  • Double Stopped Chords

    Contextual Sampling

    Our philosophy during the recordings is called “Contextual Sampling”. In order to find the perfect sound, various string instruments were recorded over a period of four years. We came to the conclusion that no technique comes even close to the actual and natural vibrato of a trained musician.

    The sampling of real vibrato of course has some conceptual drawbacks, but these recordings are always more inspiring and organic than adding an artificial vibrato. So our goal was to perfectly capture these musical aspects and combine them into a great sounding and easy to play instrument.

    Violin Image One
    The result is a library with unsurpassed authenticity

    This wonderful sound is rounded off by a multitude of articulations. Thus, different phrases, turns, variations, bars and closing notes can be used as actually independent phrasings without having to repeat themselves. So that these sounds and articulations can be used appropriately to the context, respective keyswitches such as Delicate Fast, Vivid or Moderate have been added.

    Emotional Violin also offers unusual articulations that you won’t find in any other library. Simply select from one of the following:

  • Normal Sustains 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 Effects

  • Violin Percussions

This library also features technical refinements such as Rebowing, which allows you to switch between bow strokes using the Keyswitch – extremely useful for long sustains. The Vibrato Crossfade works in a similar way, allowing you to easily fade from non-vibrato to vibrato.

The Recording

The Emotional Violin was recorded at the Mastermix Studio near Munich in a wood-panelled room with a large ceiling height and the greatest possible distance to the wall. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184 and U87 microphones were deliberately used to record closely. Therefore the room amount is quite subtle and you can use your own effects for further processing. However, you can also use the integrated Convolution Reverb.

Emotional Violin Articulations Screen
Kontakt

Emotional Violin has three True Legato Master Patches, including the “Romantic Violin” and the “Intimate Violin”. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations, which logically overlap. If, for example, you play an opening note that of course has no legato, you will only hear one note with a natural string opening. As soon as you play legato or sustain notes, you will hear a note that originates from the corresponding context of the original recordings.

In addition, the library contains more than 70 articulations, which are grouped into categories and are available as multi-keyswitch patches – everything from simple sustains to dynamic crossfades between four layers is included. So if you don’t want to work with keyswitches, this way of working is perfect for you.
To ensure the highest possible liveliness, many variations contain up to 9 Round Robins.


Emotional Violin is the second virtual instrument in this series, produced by Harmonic Subtones, the makers of Emotional Cello.

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!

Mercury–Waves Factory–Recensione

 

 

https://www.wavesfactory.com/mercury/

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolis_Studios

FREDDIE MERCURY’S FAZIOLI

Mercury is a grand piano sample library for Kontakt Player featuring a Fazioli F-228 recorded at Metropolis Studios in London.

One year in the making, taking care of the smallest details in order to make it perfect.

It’s considered by many one of the best piano sample libraries on the market.

THE CONCEPT

Fazioli pianos pursuit perfection. They’re sophistically delicate with a very rich low-end and a lot of body resonance.

Mercury was recorded by Grammy Award winning Paul B. Norris with 5 mic positions from ultra-close to room sound for maximum versatility. It sounds warm and very emotional. Perfect for intimate low-key tracks, but it’s also very punchy and aggressive on high velocities. A combination that you don’t find usually on piano libraries.

It has been captured with so much detail and depth that you can make it sound in a million different ways and still sound natural, but it will always retain the character. Mercury can be a big monster library or light-weighted since one microphone only uses ~300MB of RAM. With realism in mind and all the possible features that we could think of including soft pedalling, una corda, sostenuto, sympathetic resonance, microtuning…

Mercury will fit in every situation perfectly, and it will be an honour to know that it has become your go-to piano library.
