Embertone updates Friedlander Violin to v1.5

Embertone has released version 1.5 of its Friedlander Violin instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Embertone Friedlander Violin 1.5

We set out to create a virtual violin with malleable, intuitive controls, and an authentic, LIVING sound.

From the beginning we wanted control over vibrato and dynamics, so we presented Dovid with an insane, almost athletic challenge: to record more than 4000 samples with musical purpose and a beautiful tone, and all WITHOUT VIBRATO!

This gives you your own layer of expressivity… a variety of musical parameters at your fingertips so that you can craft and phrase authentic performances.

Changes in Friedlander Violin v1.5

  • Bow Position Color Morphing.
  • Bug Fixes / Under-the-hood Enhancements.
  • Flexible (and moveable) Keyswitches.
  • Improved Vibrato.
  • Better Legato Performance.
  • 800+ MB in new sample content.
  • Improved Dynamic Response ppp –> ff.
  • New GUI Controls.
  • Memory/CPU Improvements.

Friedlander Violin is on sale for $99 USD until June 15th, 2014. The Blakus Cello is also on sale for $99 USD.

Embertone The Canjo

Embertone has announced The Canjo, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

A Canjo is a single string musical instrument. It is held like a guitar but may also be played on a table or lap. The neck is made of furniture grade kiln dried hard wood hand rubbed with boiled linen seed oil. On the neck fretted diatonically (like a dulcimer including a 6-1/2 fret) are twelve notes or finger positions.

We couldn’t imagine having more fun with a single string! The instrument includes an arpeggiator that will infuse an awesome rhythm into your music. So what are you waiting for, grab this thing while it’s hot!

The Canjo features

  • One String, One Can.
  • Muted/Fingered/Picked.
  • Flexible Articulation Control.
  • Lots of Arpeggiations.
  • Secret Weapon/Scoring Tool.
  • So many ambience possibilities.
  • Full Kontakt 4.2.4+ required.

The Canjo is available to download at no charge.

Embertone Harmonette for Kontakt available to download

Embertone Harmonette

Embertone has launched Harmonette, a free virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Harmonette is a rare, antique instrument, and in all of our research we could not find a similar one! It looks like a recorder, but functions and sounds more like a melodica. And it’s super old – our best guess is somewhere between 60-80 years.

The Christmas-like colors inspired us to offer the Harmonette as a free, time-limited instrument… the window of opportunity to download this will be very small. So what are you waiting for!? Grab this instrument and make some music!

Harmonette features

  • One squeaky toy, huge range of sounds.
  • 11 NKI files.
  • 32 MB installed.
  • Sample resolution: 48 Khz / 16-bit stereo.
  • Note: Native Instruments Kontakt version 4.2 or later full retail versions required.

The library is a free download at Embertone for a limited time.

Embertone releases Blakus Cello for Kontakt

Embertone Blakus Cello

Embertone has announced the release of Blakus Cello, a virtual cello instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We bring to you the EMBERTONE BLAKUS CELLO, a collaboration with the mighty Blake Robinson, Australian composer/cellist extraordanaire.

We sought Blake out after he released the popular freebie “Pocket Blakus”, and plunged straight into development. The result is a huuuuge set of samples: expressive sustains, visceral harsh attacks, pizzicatos, tremolos… along with a carefully prepared model for sul ponticello and con sordino with scripted legato. This cello will add an expressive edge to your music – and hopefully, add a bit of joy to your music-making life!

Blakus Cello features

  • True legato programming + true Portamento’s + con Sordino + sul Ponticello + pizzicatos.
  • Custom, genius Kontakt scripting by Andreas Lemke.
  • 40 NKI files.
  • Nearly 6000 recorded samples.
  • 3 GB installed (16-bit), 5 GB installed (24-bit).
  • Fast download from Amazon S3 using CONTINUATA.
  • Sample resolution: 44.1 Khz / 16 or 24 bit stereo.
  • Kontakt 5 Player Compatible, 32/64-bit, MAC/PC compatible.

Blakus Cello is available to purchase for $120 USD (16-bit) / $125 USD (24-bit).

Embertone releases Intimate Strings Lite: Solo Cello for Kontakt

Embertone has recently released Intimate Strings Lite: Solo Cello, a free virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Embertone Solo Cello

Our free Solo Cello was created for our Facebook community – it’s an octave + of a slurred solo cello with controllable mic positions.

Although the instrument is lightweight, don’t be fooled – it has many of the same expressive capabilities as our solo violin, “Friedlander”, because it’s powered with many of the same sampling techniques.

Solo Cello features

  • Solo cello – TRUE Slurred Legato.
  • 3 Mic Positions recorded 24/96.
  • 1 Octave Range (1.5 Stretched).
  • Controllable vibrato and dynamics.
