    Hi Stefano,

    these tutorials are absolutely amazing ! Worth the prize of the Ethera Gold alone :).

    What I must admit like mentioned before: its really hard to keep track with all these presets in EVI 2 and Soundscapes, I cant even imagine with Gold on top of it....

    If I use Cubase I would shamelessly ask you for your templates :), but as I do not that would be kind of a request if it might be possible in future to just add some templates for at least the most common DAW (as I dont own Cubase or Ableton maybe wont help me much, maybe Studio One 4 could count in there, I am afraid Mulab and Waveform wont :)) for example just based on these great tutorials now (trailer template, vocal template, using the....template).

    I really dont want you to reveal your secrets but just as starting points this could be a great help. Cause actually Ethera comes to my mind when I am looking for some vocals. All this great other stuff is just so difficult to have the overview that I mostly just give up cause I know my guitar kontakt library, my athmosphere library, my.....Hope you get what I mean.

    I really would like to do a whole song with Ethera (especially of course with Gold someday) and the tutorials are a real great starting point in some way, but.....

    Thanks for this unbelievable support and energy going not only in to making this stuff but to communicate all this "how to" :)

    Hey @KarlHeinz , Thanks, do you know that the idea of "Template" Ethera is not bad at all? I Can try to create a basic Ethera Template for Cubase , with "Cubase PlugIns" and share it here...

    Why Not ?

    Thanks for the idea !

    And... I Post the Tutorial on " ROLI ".

    Ethera gold has special Patches for ROLI and are very nice!

    Here some Tips ! And also some Tips to How use Soundscapes Roli Vocal Patches with Roli.

    This is great! But I can see it stops at 13! What does this mean? 13 hours:geek:?? Or 13 Days:mad:??!! Hopefully the latter!

    I would assume that the countdown means the time to make the library so this would mean 13 days and I think realistic that it took about two years to make. And 13 days mean it will still be May :).

    The Developing of Ethera Gold took one year of work, but considering that the "core" of some important script It Was created before for Ethera EVI, then I powered the main Hybrid Synth Script,with new features. So 1 Year for the sampling of Vocals, Intruments, Editing, sound design, GFX, GUI, etc and yes. Considering all in all, 2 years of work yes ( as for Ethera EVI considering the V1 and V2)

    Dont know if evrybody had realized but the popup on the Zero-G site (I usually click ANY popup right away as I did this time before realizing that this could be interesting :) ) leads to a really informative comparision of the Ethera series including Gold. Will help me when looking for something in the future I would think, good idea :2thumbs:

    Yes A lot of patient.

    Developing a True legato as Ethera EVI or the New Ethera Gold Epic True Legato is a very long process. Up to 3 Layers for many Sustains and Legato Transiction. No Loop. And The new Epic True legato is chromatic (no artificial pitching - Real Vocal Range from G3 to A5, synthetically extended range from A5 to C6) then there are about 1200 vocal phrases... etc etc , only the vocals is a lot of work.

    About the Covers... and You Tube Channel a few weeks ago Clara published this, a live cover from the studio

    Thanks, @whiskers

    Yes, You are right! Develop this kind of True Legato is very Hard and a bit
    unnerving
    :faint:, and I supervised also the quality of the result, from my point of view ( a singer ) for the best result of the epic legato transitions.

    And it sounds great!

    Cheers! :)

    This Demo has been Used Ethera Gold TrueLegato, Action Synth for some action sequences, and some Arpeggiators, Vocal Phrases, some Hits and Synth Bass, Rising etc.




    and this is a Demo composed using Ethera EVI and Ethera Soundscapes ( except for the strings )





    Cheers.
