Eli Krantzberg about CH Solo Strings

Eli Krantzberg

Eli Krantzberg about Chris Hein Solo Strings Complete:

"These solo instruments also sound fantastic when paired with Logic’s new Studio Strings ensembles and sections. The extensive articulation switching available in the Chris Hein instruments is perfectly suited to be paired with Logic’s new Articulation ID system. In this video, I’ll show you how to edit the existing violin articulation ID set to work with the Chris Hein Solo Violin instrument. Setting up your third-party libraries to work with Logic’s articulation ID switching functions is a great way to get one consistent workflow under your belt that you can use across all libraries."

Accordions 2 review

Holger Obst has written a detaiiled review at  Releasetime.de for Accordions 2 by Eduardo Tarilonte (in German language)

"Top Product Award" for Accordions 2.

Top Product Award for Accordions 2

Fazit 

Best Service / Eduardo Tarilonte Akkordions 2 behaupten ohne Zweifel die Spitzenposition in diesem schmalen Marktsegment. Die Audioqualität ist erlesen, und die einzelnen Instrumente werden in ihrem spezifischen Charakter abgebildet.

Die Dynamiksteuerung durch das Modulationsrad wird ergänzt durch die Lautstärkemodulation des Bellow-Shake (Pressen und Ziehen des Faltenbalgs), steuerbar beispielsweise über ein Expression-Pedal und im Wirkungsradius genau dosierbar – auch synchron zum Tempo, falls erforderlich.

Auch die Auswahl an Akkordeons und artverwandten Instrumenten wird in diesem Umfang von keinem anderen Anbieter erreicht. Alle Instrumente der Sammlung sind akkurat ausgearbeitet und werden in allen Details abgebildet – bis hin zu Nebengeräuschen wie dem Luftstrom bei Bewegung des Faltenbalgs und der Mechanik beim Anschlagen und Loslassen der Tasten. Zur Lebendigkeit und Authentizität des Klanges tragen ferner die drei anschlagsdynamischen Stufen und die Round Robins bei.

Beim Überblenden mittels Modulationsrad fallen keine Übergänge zwischen den einzelnen Samples auf. Alles wirkt fließend wie im richtigen Leben. Das richtige Leben kann auch einem Akkordeon auf die Dauer zusetzen. Um schräge Töne beizusteuern, gibt es ein aufwändiges Microtuning mit Performance-Optionen.

Wem typische Akkordeon-Akkordfolgen eher fremd sind, der findet in den rhythmischen Presets eine Auswahl von Spielweisen vom Walzer bis zur Polka. Hier hätte die Auswahl noch etwas breiter gefächert und variantenreicher sein können. Akkorde werden in Dur, Moll, mit Septime und vermindert angeboten, dazu der Bass als Begleitung.

Die Samples sind nicht geloopt. Auf einem echten Akkordeon kann man durch Pressen und Ziehen des Faltenbalgs die Töne beinahe ins Unendliche dehnen. Das macht aber kaum jemand unter 2.0 Promille, weshalb die Länge der Samples auch für fast alle Fälle ausreichen dürfe. Was ich mir gewünscht hätte, wäre ein Wechsel der Register über Steuertasten.

Unterm Strich verfügen die Accordions 2 über eine reiche Ausstattung an Instrumenten, einen authentischen, lebendigen Klang und über Extras wie rhythmische Akkordbegleitungen, Bellow-Shake-Menü und Microtuning. Damit nehmen sie unter den virtuellen Akkordeons den Spitzenplatz ein – und wir verleihen diesem Produkt unseren Award.

Auch der Preis ist nicht übertrieben, das Upgrade-Angebot ausgesprochen fair.

Felizidades, Senor Tarilonte und Glückwunsch an Best Service.

Symhobia Series 1.6. released

Symphobia Series 1.6. upgrade

The Symphobia Series is a proven tool of inspiration for scoring films, games and television. Symphobia offers true ensemble recordings of a full symphony orchestra and choir, various beautiful solo instruments and an unbeatable collection of intense, cinematic orchestral effects.

Discover the fully updated 1.6 Editions of the library series that forever changed the film scoring game.

Symphobia Series

WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 1.6

New articulations & effects (S1 & S2)
 
The Symphobia Series 1.6 Edition adds newly recorded sample content.

Sul Tasto Strings
Symphobia 1 now features a beautiful set of sul tasto strings. Recorded in multiple dynamics, starting at a whispering ppp, these sul tastos can be played as a full ensemble or per section.

Ghostly Strings
For Symphobia 2, we recorded a hair-raising new set of string effects, which we dubbed the Ghostly Strings. Killer Bees, Undead Trills and Creepy Bending give you an idea of some of the sounds you will encounter. Many of the effects are available in multiple, mod-wheel controlled dynamics, as well as different articulations.

New Multis
Both Symphobia 1 and 2 pack numerous new and inspiring Multis to experiment with.

New features (S1, S2 & S3)
 
Over 16 new features were added to the Symphobia Series 1.6 Edition, as well as many performance enhancements and fixes. In Symphobia 1 and 2, you can now switch articulations using the new articulation slider, which can also be mapped to CC. In all three Symphobia volumes, you can now lock your selected articulations, disabling all keyswitches and other articulation control, which is very useful when using bigger templates. It is now also possible to route individual mic outputs, lock round robins and enable/disable the sustain pedal. For an overview of the biggest changes, check out the video on the right.
