I'm happy to say that we now have the encoded files back. Our Orthodox Easter is this weekend so after that we'll get right to the tagging and NKS implementation of the new patches and will get those out for you ASAP.

Come on, I'm already looking forward to the new ventures ahead.....

Orthodox Easter, ouch. You have really long holidays on Balkan :sleep:.
I'm dying of curiosity, to play with new (hope) lovely solos!

This library is just amazing. At first I was working more with the Scene D'amour patches, the Vintage Patches, and the Minimalist patches, among others. They're all pretty amazing. Ground breaking in many ways.
But for some reason the first time I used the Lush patches I did not love them as much as the others, I think because they sounded too loud and bright at first, as they have a very wide dynamic range. But yesterday I did a cue with them. I put the sordino setting, and used low dynamics - Expression set to minimum, and using Modulation to control the volume but keeping it in the PP Layer. They sound just BEAUTIFUL. Very agile and fast legato, but very smooth and beautiful. So take note - the Lush strings patch works very well on PP material with smooth transitions, and it still speaks pretty fast in terms of the legato speed. The Minimalist patches are still probably my favorite as they have a string sonority that I had never experienced before or heard before on a sample library. But they are a little slower to respond, so when you need that Minimalist sound but need a patch that "speaks faster" use the Lush strings in PP using only the Modulation for dynamics, so it does not change to the MP and F layers. Great results here.
Afflatus is still my favorite string library ever sampled and it looks as though it will hold that spot for a long time.
Look forward to trying the new sounds when the update comes out!! Afflatus is the gift that keeps on giving.
Bravo again @StrezovSampling

Sorry about the radio silence... we're doing the NKS implementation now and are ALMOST ready. Then we need to get through NI's QA and we're set.

I'll be doing a walkthrough video of everything in the new content soon.
What is NI's QA....all those steps seem complicated.......???

@Strezov I am wondering if the new version will feature a Sordino button for the Minimalist Patches. I personally would love that! That is my favorite patch and having the sordino option like the Lush Strings have, would further give more sound shaping possibilities to tame it a bit when using it under dialogue for instance.

That would be super useful!

Thanks much for the walk through. I am impressed that you were able to keep the beautiful warm tone that is on the first version into this update. To me that is by far the most important thing and what makes this library so special. There are a few places in the demo for the solo vi's where things do not sound perfect (a bit synthy for lack of a better word) but most solo string libraries suffer from this, but as an addition as a first chair I presume it will be very useful.
