    Hi Allen,

    we're aiming at woodwinds next. Again, we'll try to make a library that goes to some new territories and record new, exciting combinations and generally weird stuff :)

    It's an "ordinary" cluster heading into the normal sustain note; "Arrival" strings are recorded in sections and are VERY simple, we just asked the musician to "land" on the right note in a specific tempo following a musical idea (as with the rest of Afflatus) and they had the freedom to start above or below the right pitch and then bend till they get there (excluding the open strings which were, obviously, reached from the top).

    Then the only thing we did is we created Time-Machine patches so that everyone could adjust the bend time according to the tempo of their project. It's a simple as that but it's something I wanted to be able to mock-up for quite a while now...

    Hy, great great. Just a question : will the first chairs have polyphonic legatos? Would be awesome to play polyphonic lines with solo instruments!!!

    Every time I open this library I realise that I've only begun to scratch the surface of the surface.
    George and team, you've done something quite special here.
    I've just started trying layering of different patches to see what damage I can do. And maybe you'd never intended it to be used that way but for example Psychatto Strings paired with Heroine gives me a different short again and I find the result quite pleasing. It gives the heroine more bite but at lower to mid velocities you're not getting the crazy attack strings of psychatto.

    edit - I mean Heroine Strings patch, in case that wasn't clear. D'oh!

    Seems to be a really beautiful library and bringing something new to the table. Sadly, having no portamento is a deal breaker for me. It's a bit ironic too TBH as it's the cliché articulation you'll hear in almost any scene d'amour:thumbsdown:

    Heard that portamento is in 1.2 for first chairs. So you just have to layer ....!!!

    That would be wonderful! Many thanks to @Strezov and his amazing work! Can't wait for the full Chapter 2 and 3. I believe that percussion will not be available as the X3M sets that category, right?

    I’m sure George can respond but pretty sure this question was asked earlier and there wasn’t an intention to include Perc in the AFFLATUS series.

    I was just about to purchase Afflatus. It sounds like I should hold off until the next release or does it matter?

    It makes no difference. The only difference might be less downloading if you wait until the revision is available, but I can't imagine any real reason to wait.

    Where will the update be available when NI finally encoded it? Native Access? Strezov Downloader? Website?

    Hi @Saxer , it will be available on our website - through everyone's user profile since our downloader can't handle updates at this point.

    We're still waiting for NI (postponed for after Catholic Easter!) and then we will need to do some extra work like tagging, adjusting some of the old patches and updating old scripts. Basically not for the new content but for the community-requested features like:

    - new combined "multi" patches
    - velocity dynamic influencer for poly legato (meaning that you can get +/-6db for a single note volume based on your velocity... so you get your polyphonic legato Emaj9 chord and then you can have the F# be for instance more subtle than the rest of the notes, while the D# can stand out more).
    - built-in mixer for all generated multis (basically everything that's not been recorded in an ensemble)

    :shocked:

    When you buy through Best Service you receive a code that you apply on our website - so you get the latest version, updates, support, etc.
