8Dio releases Claire – Clarinet Virtuoso sample library

8Dio Claire Clarinet Virtuoso

8Dio Production has announced the release of Claire – Clarinet Virtuoso, a Woodwind Series sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt, produced by Emmy nominated composer, Colin O’Malley.

The first release in the Claire Series is our 8Dio Claire – Clarinet Virtuoso – the most expressive, playable and lifelike Clarinet ever sampled.

The Clarinet Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Far). The core of the Clarinet is its highly advanced legato system, which contains both slow and fast legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs, sustains, staccatissimo, expressive marcatos etc. We recorded arcs with both non-vibrato, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. In addition we also added trills, runs, staccatissimo and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve/click noises etc.

The Clarinet Virtuoso library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $139 USD until July 1st, 2013 (regular $199 USD).

Sample Modeling Soprano & Bass Clarinets – SWAM engine-powered sample library

Samplemodeling Soprano & Bass Clarinets

Samplemodeling has released its Soprano & Bass Clarinets sound library by by Stefano Lucato and Emanuele Parravicini.

Realistic, expressive, real time playable Virtual Clarinets? Yes, like all previous Samplemodeling Instruments, but exploiting a different technology on a proprietary platform, the SWAM Engine. The acronym stands for Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling, developed by Stefano Lucato.

The Clarinets use samples as a base material, chromatically performed by a professional player over a very wide dynamic range, and recorded with state-of-the-art technology. The resulting timbre is therefore that of the real instrument. But the analogy with a sample based library ends here. The underlying, proprietary technology allows continuous interpolation among different vectors like time, dynamics, pitch and formants. Advanced real time processing techniques yield realistic legato/portamento, vibrato, overblow, ornamentations & trills with phase continuity, constant-formant pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The sound library is available to purchase for 149 EUR +VAT if applicable. All Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount until November 30th, 2012.
