Instruments and sound design for the big screen

In a world...in a land...coming to studios near you: Vir2 Instruments´ Q, a massive sound design and scoring instruments library designed for the unique needs of television, film, game, and media composers and music producers who want to add a fresh and previously unheard dimension to their sonic palette.

Screen 1

Q (as in, cue, or, if you prefer, as in the master spy´s gadget man), contains almost two thousand patches and 16GB of sample material including cinematically thunderous drums, percussion, winds, vocals, ethnic instruments, metallic textures, glass, guitar, toy, ambient atmospheres, synth landscapes, and trailer-ready effects. The library includes both playable melodic pitched instruments and multisampled one-shot percussion and effects. A large collection of epic percussion loops which automatically sync to tempo and are playable both whole and by the slice, are also included.

Q´s easy-to-use interface provides one-click effecting of the library, including the famed EZRoom convolution, delay, chorus, filters, chorusing, flanging, and more. Other advanced functions include a special legato mode for melodic instruments, and crossfade controls for multilayered instruments.

While everything in Q is mapped in Kontakt format ready to play from a MIDI controller, as a bonus many of Q´s one-shot effects (such as booms, whooshes, metal scrapes and hits, and special sound effects) are also available on the disc in open 24-bit WAV format, allowing instant drag-and-drop into a film mix.

Auszug

Fazit

Für alle Musiker, die im Bereich der Filmmusik, Werbung, Games oder Multimedia arbeiten, ist Q eine gute Möglichkeit, das bestehende Sound-Repertoire zu erweitern. Dem Einsatzgebiet sind bei weitem keine Grenzen gesetzt, so dass genreübergreifend sehr gut klingende und leicht einzusetzende Sounds vorhanden sind. Die einfache und reibungslose Installation und Einbindung in den NI Kontakt Player sorgt dafür, dass die Sounds ohne große Arbeit zur Verfügung stehen und eingesetzt werden können. Der Preis von rund 249 Euro mag für eine Soundlibrary zunächst sehr hoch erscheinen, aber bei Q handelt es sich eben um weit mehr als nur ein paar angesammelte Sounds auf DVD. Ein vollwertiges Instrument samt Effekteinheit wird geboten - und dafür ist der Preis absolut gerechtfertigt.
