Tronsonic Solino String Proto Ensemble MK1

Tronsonic has announced the release of Solino String Proto Ensemble MK 1, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

A recreation of an imaginary EMINENT SOLINA STRING ENSEMBLE ‘PROTOTYPE’ – perhaps found in the basement of the old Eminent factory in Holland.

Sampled from the original MARK1 version (with ensemble effect always ON).

With customisable ‘EQ MODULATION’ EFFECT (see 2nd video down), plus 2 PHASERS – allowing a different variety of ensemble with a wide range of movement, for complex and evolving synthesized orchestral sounds.

The sound library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £14.99 GBP until November 1st, 2013 (25% off regular).

Hideaway Studio releases Orbitone Collection II for Kontakt

Hideaway Studio Orbitone Collection II

Hideaway Studio has released Orbitone Collection II, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Orbitone Collection II is another slice of rich electronic sounds and textures presented as an upgrade to the original Orbitone Collection by Hideaway Studio.

Amongst several source instruments captured during the making of this library was a unique experiment to pass the sound of 1938 Novachord 346 through the triple parallel analog chorus “Orbitone” stages of a 1972 Eminent 310U thus creating the world’s oldest string synth that never was!

Orbitone Collection II features

  • 381 generously long 24-bit samples.
  • 20 multi-sampled instruments acting as voices/partials in the layering engine.
  • 40 editable example instrument patches (in .nki format).
  • 40 editable example layered multis (20 combining Orbitone II and 20 combining both libraries).
  • User Manual.

The Orbitone Collection II upgrade is available to purchase for £8 GBP. For new customers a bundle of both Orbitone Collections is available for £18 GBP.

The Interruptor releases Night Flight string ensemble synthesizer plugin

The Interruptor has announced the release of Night Flight, a virtual analogue string ensemble synthesizer instrument for Windows.

The Interruptor Night Flight
Night Flight emulates analogue string ensemble keyboards invented in the early 70’s.

String machines have been widely used in Pop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, Soul, and Disco music throughout the seventies and up to the early eighties when they were popular with New Wave acts. In recent years the sound has stirred interest again due to it’s distinct character and undeniable vintage charm.

“Night Flight” does not use any samples. It is based on an emulation of the ensemble effect first used by Eminent / Solina back in 1972 and an organ-like sound generation (octave divider). You will also find a number of features inspired by other string machines like the 3 band equalizer from the Crumar Performer or the Envelope Filter on the very rare ARP String Synthesizer.

Night Flight features

  • 3 Oscillators (8 waveforms, pulse width control).
  • Up to three simultaneous ensemble effects modelled on the eminent/solina architecture. Full access to the internal parameters of the ensemble effects.
  • Optional divide-down mode featuring organ style phase-locked octaves.
  • 3-Band Equalizer: Each band can be configured and automated via the LFO.
  • Filter: 5 modes (LP2, LP4, BP, HP2, HP4), resonance, cutoff modulation via ADSR envelope, LFO, velocity or keyfollow.
  • Amplifier section:
    • Attack and Release. Decay and Sustain are available as under-the-hood parameters.
    • For each oscillator a simple organ envelope can be selected as an alternative to the ADSR envelope.
  • 1 LFO routable to pitch (vibrato), Filter cutoff or equalizer automation. Optional note sync.
  • Selectable keyboard split points for bass and string footages.
  • Effects section:
    • phaser (two models) + delay/echo.
    • configurable effect routing.

Night Flight for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of $9 USD until April 15th, 2013.
