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.

Adagio Strings Bundle 9 VST-AU-AAX – Kontakt Instruments overview

About “All Adagio Strings” Bundle

ADAGIO is the air, the flow, the burn and the sorrow of symphonic strings.

Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy Nominated Composer and Orchestrator, Colin O’Malley,  8Dio Adagio String Series is a new-generation orchestral sample library and the most expressive collection of deep-sampled strings ever created.

The Adagio All Strings VST Bundle contains Adagietto, Adagio ViolinsAdagio Violas, Adagio Cellos, and Adagio Basses All the Adagio libraries contains three main groups of Full Ensemble, Divisi and Solo sections.  All groups have been extensively sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of great players from the San Francisco Bay Area. All groups were sampled with three different microphone positions (close, far, mixed) and we deployed a variety of never-done-before sampling techniques from round robin based legato and the ability to connect legato effortlessly with other articulations like loure (floating notes) and dynamic bowings (expressive notes). In addition we have some of the most deep-sampled short notes ever done.

Adagio Strings is designed for professional composers and orchestrators. The individual volumes each contains several unique legato recordings (ex. round robin based legato, slurred/emotional legato, sordino legato) and the Violins, Violas, Cellos and Basses combined contain 36 different types of legatos. In addition you will find over 120 different types of Dynamic Bowings and 60 different types of Loures. All articulations in Adagio (ex. 36 legato) are all unique recordings, so you won’t find different variations of the same samples, but in fact find unique and different recordings of … everything!

Feel free to visit the respective pages for Adagietto, Adagio ViolinsAdagio Violas, Adagio Cellos and Adagio Basses.

Welcome to the future of sampling with motion and emotion.

IK Multimedia unveils Miroslav Philharmonik 2

-the new orchestra with legendary soul has arrived for Mac and PC

Miroslav Philharmonik 2 updates the most emotionally expressive orchestral library of all time with over 1,000 new string, brass and woodwind instruments recorded in high-resolution audio that offer an unparalleled depth of human feeling and ease-of-use

November 9, 2015 – IK Multimedia is proud to announce Miroslav Philharmonik™ 2, the next-generation of the most emotionally expressive orchestral collection for Mac/PC. Made in conjunction with master musician Miroslav Vitous, it comes with over 1,000 new sounds that include soaring strings, animated woodwinds and majestic brass in both solo and ensemble forms. In total, it offers a remarkable 55GB+ content library with over 2,500 instruments sampled in stunning high-resolution audio with multiple articulations plus over 30 professional quality effects, 3 powerful playback engines, a synthesizer section, a built-in mixer and a whole lot more.

Miroslav Philharmonik 2

Miroslav Philarmonik 2 is a sweeping vision from a master artist embodied in a new virtual instrument that puts the full emotional range and humanity of a symphony orchestra at musicians’ and composers’ fingertips.
Simply beautiful sound
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 builds on the core library of its predecessor with over 1,000 new instruments recorded in the ensemble strings, solo strings, ensemble brass, solo brass, ensemble woodwinds and solo woodwind categories. Its sounds have been meticulously voiced and edited with the same sampling techniques that made the original Miroslav Philharmonik one of the most popular orchestral workstations of all time.
Each of these new sounds has been recorded at the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, a space that’s been used by such legendary figures as Andrea Bocelli, Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin and, of course, Miroslav Vitous himself.
Ecstasy. Passion. Joy.
Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s instruments and sounds are able to convey the emotion and humanity of the musician behind each note. This makes it a perfect choice for when a more delicate or expressive touch is required: Like when scoring tragic love stories, recording romantic R&B ballads or adding symphonic grandeur to gothic metal anthems.
Every new sound includes its own articulations that can be accessed either via a convenient key switching system that lets musicians instantly play flowing legatos, animated pizzicatos, aggressive spiccatos, elegant staccatos, triumphant fortissimos and more. All articulations are also available as individual instruments.
In addition to the new sounds, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 also comes with an updated library of instruments from the original Miroslav Philharmonik. These classic instruments have been enhanced to take advantage of the new SampleTank 3 technology powering Miroslav Philharmonik 2. This provides more possibilities for sonic sculpting than ever before: All instruments now come with 8 macro controls (as opposed to 4) that control features like a 3-band EQ, a filter cutoff and envelope parameters like attack and release that are perfect for on-the-fly adjustments.
Powerful processing
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 includes over 30 professional-grade studio plug-in effects from IK Multimedia’s acclaimed SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation. These effects encompass the full range of the sonic spectrum and include equalizers, dynamic processors, filters, modulation effects, reverbs, delays and more. It also includes 4 of the best analog-modeled mastering effects from IK’s acclaimed T-RackS mixing and mastering suite for complete, in-the-box mixing.
Beyond these effects, Miroslav Philharmonik 2 also comes with an updated ConvoRoom convolution reverb unit that now sports a new virtual room that displays the physical space acoustically represented.
With such a collection of effects, musicians can create professional, broadcast-quality productions straight inside Miroslav Philharmonik 2 itself with no additional processing required!
Play. Mix. Edit: Advanced control
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 uses the same Play, Mix and Edit pages as SampleTank 3. These pages give musicians an extreme amount of intuitive creative control over Miroslav Philharmonik 2’s orchestral sounds. It comes with an easy-to-use instrument browser, a 16-part DAW-style mixer with per-channel effect slots and global send/return and a powerful synthesizer section with 3 sample playback engines and 10 high-quality filters. With the synthesizer, musicians can quickly and easily transform a simple trumpet into a massive synth lead or a mighty brass ensemble into a dreamy pad – Miroslav Philharmonik 2 literally lets composers explore the furthest reaches of their creative minds.
Mobile composition
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 has been designed to be experienced with IK’s growing range of companion hardware controllers. Keyboard players will love the effortlessness with which its instruments pair with IK’s iRig Keys, iRig Keys PRO, iRig Keys 25, iRig Keys 37 and iRig Keys 37 PRO keyboard controllers. Now musicians can have a responsive and thoroughly tactile piano experience – complete with world-class grand piano sound – anytime and everywhere.
Seamless integration
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 is based on SampleTank 3 technology. This means that it can be used on its own as a standalone instrument or as an additional library inside of the SampleTank 3 sound and groove workstation.
Pricing and availability
Miroslav Philharmonik 2 will be available in December. It is currently available for pre-order at special, limited-time introductory pricing via the IK online store and from select music retailers in a number of different options:
Current owners of Miroslav Philharmonik can upgrade for as low as $/€199.99* for direct download or $/€229.99 for a boxed copy.

Emotional Cello header

Harmonic Subtones logoEmotional Cello – never before, a virtual instrument could be played with this level of expression.

Emotional Cello is a new kind of virtual instrument, created by Harmonic Subtones, a Munich based developer team, to be used with Native Instrument’s Kontakt 5 Player. Because of its powerful and simultaneously exceptional emotional sound, it opens up previously unknown verbal dimensions for the work with samples.

Emotional Cello is the perfect instrument for film-scoring, pop-production, song-writing, classic and modern avant-garde cello compositions. This unique virtual instrument shines by its impressive number of articulations, its direct uncolored sound quality, unusual play techniques and innovative rebowing.

cello bridge banner

Emotional Cello has been continuously recorded in a musical context to capture the natural bowing and the individual expressions of real instrumentalists. Thanks to intelligent scripting, 16 play-styles and true legato, this library offers immense versatile possible applications. Emotional Cello offers all typical play-styles and articulations as well as unusual techniques such as

  • sul ponticello legato and
  • flageolet legato,
  • morbid sustain,
  • ricochet and even
  • renaissance sounds.

Content

Cello & Mic

Harmonic Subtones calls the underlying philosophy of the Emotional Cello project „Contextual Sampling“. In search for perfect tone and highest inspiration, various string instruments have been recorded over a period of no less than four years. Conclusion was that nothing can match the natural vibrato with its artistic facets performed by skilled musicians. Although, any sample with an included recorded vibrato has obvious conceptual drawbacks, the sound of the performance itself will be a lot more inspirational than adding artificial vibrato. Based upon this insight, Harmonic Subtones went to extract the recordings with topmost musicality to forge a brilliant sounding instrument.
The result is a library of unmatched authenticity.

To achieve conclusive arrangements. Emotional Cello offers a multitude of articulations. This way, the several phrases, turns, variations, pickups and endings can be used as real autonomous phrasings without the need of ever being repeated. To be able to correctly use the various tones and articulations in a musical context, the corresponding key switches have been appropriately titled with names such as Delicate fast, Vivid or Moderate.

In addition, Emotional Cello also offers unusual and unconventional articulations, almost never to be found in competitive products. For example, the library offers

  • the so called Spilegno, a harder edged Spiccato with bow-noise,
  • Power 5th Spiccato,
  • Plectrum Pizz,
  • Rota Spiccato
  • and a lot more.

Added are technical refinements, such as the rebowing-function which allows controlled directional change of the bow within a note using a key switch – uttermost useful with long sustains. Likewise, the vibrato-crossfade allows creating rhythmically perfect transitions from non-vibrato to vibrato-patches.

Emotional Cello Screen 1

Recording

Emotional Cello has been recorded in the Mastermix Studio, Unterföhring/Germany. The instrument has been carefully mic’ed in a wood-paneled room with high ceilings and highest possible wall distance. Microphone recordings were performed intentionally close using two Neumann models KM184 and U47, preserving a discreet portion of the room’s excellent acoustics. At the same time, the close mic’ing technique easily allows external processing, e.g. to accomplish an overall ambience for the mix. Just as needed, the integrated convolution reverb of the Kontakt 5 Player or the pure unprocessed original sounds can be used.

Emotional Cello Screen 4

Kontakt-Instruments

Emotional offers three true legato master-patches: Normal, Sulponticello and Harmonics. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations, which are logically interconnected using advanced scripting. For example: A note being played in the beginning will sound perfectly natural because the chosen sample will also be a first note of the source recordings. The same goes for legato- and sustained notes: All samples originate from a corresponding context of the original recordings.
Approximately 50 additional single-patches contain a selected articulation each. Choices range from simple sustain-patches to dynamic crossfades between four layers. These patches are useful for producers preferring to arrange different articulations on different MIDI tracks instead of switching these by key switches. To achieve highest authenticity and liveliness, the patches offer four round-robin-samples for long notes and up to eight for short notes.
