Hello, the library sounds very promising in the walkthrough!

I would like to know if I can buy the library while the reduced price is still on, but download the files after 28 of August.

Thank you

Hi @eli0s, of course you can! I'll make sure to send the corresponding links personally once you want to download the library.

Just drop me a line here via PM or to [email protected]

Nice!
But similarly to what someone mentioned earlier, it's incredibly quiet!
Even with the volume slider raised in Kontakt, slider in Cubase at max, and CC1 and CC11 hovering around max, it's way too quiet.
Anyone else noticed this? Anything I can do?
Thanks.

Hi @jamieboo, I'm sorry to read that.

I would recommend you click on the edit button of the instrument and add a gainer or an inverter in the insert effects, then raise the volume knob up.

I uploaded a png file to show how I would do that, hope it helps.

I will try that - thank you Maxime!
But isn't that a work around for a problem that shouldn't be there in the first place?
Can't the program itself be fixed/patched so the volume is at a natural level?
Or am I the only one having this issue?

Well the problem is... the volumes are nearly at their natural levels. Most of sample library developers tend to adjust the levels at the processing stage with higher gains.

I didn't do it as much as others do as I like to have some low levels first to make sure nothing peaks in Kontakt, and put a gainer afterwards.
Again, I sincerely hope it doesn't bother you that much and that you're still satisfied with the tone of the library:)

Thanks for the explanation, Maxime.
It certainly doesn't bother me too much. As others have said, it's a great little library!

Cool! This sounds GREAT! It's a no-brainer if someone wants a lyrical solo female voice line! It's a full voice, more on the Alto side, but the quality of the voice is beautiful (if you don't mind a strong developing vibrato) and the legato script works very well (although not for fast passed coloraturas:shocked:). Slow, lyrical or even dramatic passages: CHECK!:dancer:

Bravo, well done!!!:2thumbs:

Just made a free demo version from the library, just so you might get used to its interface and playability before purchasing:

bit.ly/SoloOperaLegato (download times via Wi-Fi for me: less than a minute)

Limited range of C#4 to F4, no "Custom Legato" nor "Tension Builds" patches, only "Close" and "Mains stereo" mics.

The full version gives you access to the full soprano register (A2-G#4), both "Custom Legato" & "Tension Builds" patches and a 24/7 customer support service.

There is a flash sale at the moment at organic samples, -40% off every single product and -60% off the complete bundle!
I wrote to one of the support guys about their upcoming libraries and they seem to be focusing on male vocals now, so actually... why not?

Hi midi-et-quart, yes indeed, we are currently working on such a library. And it's probably me who told you the info, right?;)

We keep the same methods we had for Solo Opera and Ethnic Inspiration, but this time we are also recording different legato techniques to combine them into one patch. There will also be some experimental sustains with some cool subharmonics and other types of unique singing techniques.

Best,
Frank

That is great news.

Have you thought about a library dedicated to throat singing?

Here is a cool video:

Will there be 24bit downloads for the Opera samples the way there is for the Middle Eastern ones?

Hey Frank ,

Dirk Ehlert did a demo with your library some time ago. Was never able to watch it though.

Do you have a link to the demo? I believe you need some more demos and/ or review on the site....
