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).

Samplemodeling releases Oboe & English Horn virtual instrument

Samplemodeling Oboe & English Horn

Samplemodeling has announced the release of Oboe & English Horn, a SWAM engine powered virtual instrument created by Stefano Lucato and Emanuele Parravicini, in collaboration with Giorgio Tommasini & Peter Siedlaczek.

Oboe & English Horn utilizes Samplemodeling’s proprietary SWAM engine (Synchronous Wavelength Acoustic Modeling) developed by Stefano Lucato & Emanuele Parravicini.

Oboe & English Horn use samples as 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, vibrato, squeak, overblow, ornamentations & trills, pitchbends, subharmonics, growl and flutter tongue to be performed in real time.

The instrument is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX), priced at 149 EUR plus VAT. Samplemodeling customers are entitled to a 10% discount until November 30th, 2013.
