PHILHARMONIKER. Our full string
orchestra contains 14 violins, 10 Violas, 8 Cellos
and 6 Double Basses. Now it's your turn to
experience this huge orchestral section as a useful
string instrument. Sound Magic has created
Orchestral Strings One as a single ensemble complete
with the beautiful ambience of this amazing hall.
This incredible instrument will quickly become your
"go to" string orchestra. No longer will you have to
try and build a similar sound with several different
string instruments or sections, burning up tracks,
RAM, CPU cycles and your valuable time!
Violins, violas, cellos and basses
are considered to be nearly impossible to sample
into realistic sounding instruments. And the String
Ensemble is the holy grail of these string
instruments. KVR's Developers Challenge has provided
Sound Magic with an opportunity to push the
boundaries of our Hybrid Modeling Technology by
creating Orchestral Strings One. Our quest for
extreme realism not only lets us flex our
engineering and computational chops - it gives you
an incredibly useful freebie!
If you're familiar with the #2
ranked KVR instrument, Piano One,
you know how clean Sound Magic's efforts are. To
ensure the highest sound quality possible in our
samples, we use top-of-the-line gear such as Brauner
Microphones and Neve preamps. Couple this gear with
the prodigious Berliner Hall and Orchestral Strings
One is able to push the boundaries of realism - with
the aid of Sound Magic's Award-Winning NEO Hybrid
Modeling Technology, of course!
The NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine
offers you the best from both the sampling and
modeling worlds. The Authentic Sound of Sampling
combined with the Playability of Modeling makes for
a string experience that you have to try to believe!
hardware requirements here. Orchestral Strings One
takes up less than 200MB of disk space and doesn't
overly tax your CPU. The NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine
gives you absolute control over every aspect of each
string - you can even design your own string! There
are nearly 20 controls waiting for you to tweak!
Some of you (you know who you are!) just HAVE to
dial up the legato and velocity, fiddle with the
dynamic response, and play with those timbre
Unlike static samples, modeling
technology really brings the Orchestral Strings One
to life. And more importantly, Orchestral Strings
One focuses on the continuous flow of melody, not on
just a single note. For example, you can
progressively transform a sustained note by first
adding slow vibrato, then medium vibrato and finally
fast vibrato. While doing this, you can also use the
expression controller to change from crescendo to
decrescendo. This sort of control is just about
impossible to achieve with sampled strings.
Orchestral Strings One is very easy
to use. You can play with all the parameters on the
fly with a MIDI keyboard using key switches and
controllers. A keyboard player can easily and freely
play our Orchestral Strings One without any
difficulty. It's perfect for a live performance!
