Patchpool has annonunced the release of Ambient Strings, a sound library for MachFive 3 by MOTU.
Ambient Strings focusses on atmospheric sounds and textures derived from string instruments like cello, violin (electric and acoustic), electric and acoustic guitars, psaltery (ebowed, plucked and bowed) and oud.
The patches combine textural sounds, multisampled acoustic instruments and more exotic instrument articulations with electronic textures all derived from the dry instrument samples to create wonderful, ethereal, dark and mysterious sound worlds. Expressive multisampled instruments, temposynced instrument sequences and morphable soloistic phrases are also included in this library.
16 patches patches/instruments have scripted interfaces for extended sound manipulation, a snapshot system especially developed for this library allows the user to save and recall 5 snapshots, or recall the 5 snapshots programmed into the patches by default. So on top of the 75 patches this library ships with another 64 snapshot variations.
Ambient Strings features
- 3.35 GB of original samples (wavs/stereo/48 Khz/24 Bit), 6 impulse responses, 4 single cycles, a small fraction of samples was borrowed from other patchpool libraries.
- 75 patches (including 3 low CPU variations) plus 64 snapshot variations inside the scripted patches, combining all synthesis forms available in MachFive 3.
- All non-scripted patches have the Modwheel and the 8 Macros assigned in the info tab, quite a few also use Aftertouch.
The sound library is available for purchase for 68 EUR.
