    Tried it. Seems like an orchestra concept built around the Doppler effect, if the demo is anything to go by.

    Is this the first SPITFIRE demo we’ve seen? Could count some of the LABS as demos I suppose; I think the Whitacre LAB was one...
    Very cool.

    “Your download is ready”
    Thought I’d been ordering SF libraries in my sleep. That’s a relief..

    First impression - I hope I can take the gate off the Basses Doppler

    They "accidentally" sent out a WIP patch of Orchestral Swarm way back, as part of viral marketing.

    Thought the same...at least i hope for something like Heavyocity deep editing where i could set the slope and speed and of course sync the gate, swell, waves.
    Still dreaming of a swell/wave maker which use actually physics and math formulas for custom editing. Kind of real waves of sound indeed.
    However, i´m looking forward to see the full editing GUI (i hope there is one deeper behind the demo).

    A little unsettling receiving an email stating "Your download is ready" when I haven't ordered or requested anything. Ultimately all good, but a bit of an odd marketing strategy in my opinion.

    To save anyone the bother of downloading, here's a quick demo video from me. It's two patches... both sound quite like warped strings. One is a 5 octave fast tremolo effect, the other is a bass with a slow pitched doppler effect.

    HERE is the link if you want to pick it up.

    Thank you, as I only have Kontakt player, and the demo needs the full version - that's very helpful! :)

    A bit random play with a dry setting (i mean as dry as i can get in the demo with delay, reverb and saturation at minimum) and dynamics about 10-15% to get a more "smooth" sound. Both demo presets triggered at the same time with the same midi notes.
    I repeated it with my own reverb a second time with same settings (just a default B2 and a Precedence before to separate it a bit in the space)
    So far i think it could be really usable for my needs.

    The read-me in the download (at least on the Windows side) includes this:
    So I guess you could play for 15 minutes at a time to evaluate whether you want to buy the full product, whatever that turns out to be.

    I actually came on Vi this morning to check if the email I received from Spitfire wasn't a phishing email!

    You're now making me feel very dumb for clicking the link without checking first. :blush:

    Thanks, that's interesting. I watched the explanation movie up to the point where it said you needed the full version of Kontakt, but the actual product would work in player. I didn't get further than that! :)

    Yeah, this bass patch is pretty fun.

    The LFO or whatever it is that makes the beating sound makes it hard to play chords -- or, at least, the interference makes me a little seasick. I wonder if in the full instrument there will be an option to lock phase, or if it's built into the recordings.

    The little demo gift as a teaser is a terrific idea!

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if it was genuine... I honestly though it was SPAM or a hack didn't open it in case there was a virus so I deleted it!

    You never know these days.

    So, a library of orchestral movements and effects based on physical phenomena?
    The doppler basses and swells in the teasers sound great to me. I'm surprisingly intrigued by this.
