Finally... deep-sampled potatoes!
Oh... I forgot the E...
Violas never get the love. lol
Sometimes I make my own custom ensemble pathces in Logic, using stacks, and this means that I can define the range of each instrument. I always end up with violas getting the widest range. Cello/bass cover the low register (from B1 and downwards), violins cover the register above the uppermost viola notes, around C5, and violas cover the rest. Violins (and cello) also often sound better when doubled with violas. I really like the wooden, lyrical sound of violas, and they also seem to be easier to recreate with samples than violins - at least in some libraries.
Poor viola players:
This does sound awesome. I do not use Metropolis Ark 1, and have held off on getting on sale. Don't know if I should kick myself, but this looks so good I hope it is worth the wait.
Each of them gave me a good laugh, thanks! And i LOVE Violas...
Sounds promising. How soft is the lowest dynamic layer of the strings shorts? Is this library only about "huge epic" or for more general use? One thing I've noticed listening to HZ's Batman soundtracks is how softly played those spiccati patterns are at some times, would be great if this library was able to handle that.
Range is pp to ff isn’t it?
Looking through their website it looks like they mainly cater for Trailer music.
The library is not limited to epic music, it's very versatile
It has a fantastic dynamic range, pps are really quiet, and ffs are incredibly powerful, we also included a Volume Range slider, so you can adjust the dynamic range to your taste.
Thank you for your direct involvement here. This is really looking like a highly versatile product. It is in my target. Please let us know as you get a date so I can plan accordingly.
Thank you for answer. Cannot wait for some walkthrough videos.
any legato demos?
The problem, as I see it, is that it’s the directors and producers who call the shots, and said shots don’t include woodwinds, believe me (or don’t). FWIW, I love me some woodwinds.
Part of the reason I'm not interested in writing music for movies.
I was watching to "IT" the other day and thought of the (cool) score "wow it has woodwinds". That movie had the biggest gross income of all times for a R rated movie.
Maybe enough for a (hopefully final) viral reminder note for directors "Look, woodwinds in your movie are not going to kill sales"
Btw this lib sounds interesting, keeping my eye on it
Legato demos please !!!!! Can't wait for the CELLOS !!! And the hybrids.....and the percs !!! and...everything !!!
First percussion tech demo coming right up! Using the processed full mix mic it showcases both the DC and NDC patches. To explain:
- With distance compensated mics, there's much more punchy-ness on the attack of the samples (DC patches sound better with epic/trailer music).
- With non-distance compensated mics, the stereo image is more natural ( NDC patches sound better with more traditional orchestral music).
All of the percussion patches will come with both versions. Both examples have zero processing.
Percussion sounds so organic and punchy!
