Loopmasters releases Double Tiger – Horns of Dub

Loopmasters has launched Horns of Dub, a sample library by Double Tiger featuring a collection of classic Roots horns performed and recorded live through an all analogue signal path for maximum authenticity and then drenched in lovely Dub FX.

Double Tiger Horns of Dub

Horns of Dub is a high-grade blend of Trombone, Trumpet & Tenor Saxophone that together form the classic 1970s Reggae horn section featuring top New York session guys paying tribute to the harmonic, melodic and rhythmic styling’s of legendary Reggae horn players such as Dean Fraser, Felix (Deadly Headly) Bennett, Rico Rodriquez, Cedric Brooks and Dirty Harry.

All horn lines have been performed live and produced by Double Tiger to emulate the rawness, brute force and real authentic “dread” quality that we have heard on so many amazing recordings from Jamaica in the 70’s. There are 22 different themes with multiple melodies, harmonies, chord stab variations to choose from and also included both dry unaffected version and dubbed (effected) versions are available.

The sample library costs £19.95 GBP.

Aria launches with Cellist, Classical Guitarist & Solo French Horn for Kontakt

Aria has launched with the release of Cellist, Classical Guitarist & Solo French Horn, three virtual instrument libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Aria Cellist

Cellist

Aria’s “Cellist”is a wonderfully sampled solo cello, designed for Kontakt 5 and above, and the first to come of our VST strings. It comes complete with three true dynamic levels, each with up to four round robins, giving a staggering twelve true variations pernote!

On top of this, we have programmed an up-bow, down-bow alternation for as natural a sound to the instrument as possible.

Aria Classical Guitarist

Classical Guitarist

Aria’s “Classical Guitarist”, is a beautifully sampled and hugely diverse classical guitar.

When programming this vst, we decided to work out some sort of system that would let the instrument keep the full natural attack on every sample/note, whilst still allowing the instrument to be played to a tempo comfortably, and without feelings of latency.

The solution was quite a simple one, but it lead to and absolutely brilliant sound.

Aria Solo French Horn

Solo French Horn

Aria’s “Solo French Horn”, is our take on this magnificent orchestral instrument. Most notes with three dynamic layers, each with three round robin recordings for a total of up to nine variations per note for a natural human sound.

You can blend between dynamic layers with the mod wheel to capture the full breadth and dimension of the sound in a single note.

The sample libraries are available to purchase for the introductory price of £15 GBP each (RRP £30 GBP each). A bundle of all three costs £37.50 GBP during the opening sale (RRP £75 GBP).
