Orange Tree Samples releases Angelic Zither for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples Angelic Zither

Orange Tree Samples has released Angelic Zither, a virtual zither instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Angelic Zither is a handmade 15-string, pre-80′s zither from the Republic of Belarus (a little west of Russia). The zither’s strings are tuned diatonically in the key of G, but the samples are stretched to cover the instrument’s range chromatically. Although it only spans two octaves (stretched to 4 octaves total), this zither has a gorgeous, magical tone.

We sampled the zither using a close dynamic mic and a pair of small diaphragm condenser mics as a stereo overhead, and you can blend between these two signals to get the tone you’re after. The sample library has 3 dynamics, from soft, delicate notes to loud, resonant plucking, each with 3 alternating round-robin samples. The release samples have three round-robins and three dynamics as well, capturing the slight buzzing sound that the string makes when muted.

Angelic Zither features

  • 685 MB 24-bit 44.1khz samples.
  • 3 dynamic layers, 3x round-robin.
  • Separate close mono mic and stereo far mic positions.
  • Duration dependent release samples.

The library is available for the introductory price of $14.95 USD until July 31st, 2014 (regular $24.95 USD).

Orange Tree Samples releases Pure Jazz Vibes for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples Pure Jazz Vibes

Orange Tree Samples has launched Pure Jazz Vibes, a virtual vibraphone instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We developed Pure Jazz Vibes in collaboration with Chris Poehler of Lujon Audio, who arranged and oversaw the entire sample recording as well as contributing his invaluable expertise to the production of the sample library itself. One of our top priorities for Pure Jazz Vibes was getting a pristine, yet natural vibraphone tone. We auditioned several vibraphones, finally selecting a 70′s Musser Century Vibraphone due to its classic, warm tone. The Musser vibraphone is a legendary instrument, extensively used by vibraphone masters such as Gary Burton, Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Bobby Hutcherson, Mike Mainieri, and many others.

The vibraphone recording session was engineered by Michael Aarvold at the WaterSound Productions studio in the heart of Studio City, California. Regarding the choice of WaterSound’s studio to record the vibraphone samples, Michael says, “It has an exceptionally well-designed live room: the room maintains life and air in the sound, yet doesn’t superimpose a distinctive and undesirable sonic signature. It is also extremely quiet, which is very important when recording delicate textures and maintaining a room aspect to the sound.”

Pure Jazz Vibes features

  • Over 8 GB total 24-bit 48khz samples (uncompressed).
  • 4 dynamic layers, up to 7x round-robin, chromatically sampled.
  • Separately controllable close, mid, and far mic positions.
  • Modeled tremolo with adjustable speed and depth.

The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until February 28th, 2014 (regular $129 USD).

Orange Tree Samples releases Evolution Electric Bass – Rick

Orange Tree Samples EEB Rick

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of Evolution Electric Bass – Rick, a deeply-sampled electric bass guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

At its core, Evolution Electric Bass – Rick consists of extensive samples complemented by a powerful script. These two facets work in unison to give you ultra-realistic bass sounds with minimal effort.

Evolution Electric Bass – Rick has chromatic samples for each string, meaning that each fret was individually sampled. It has 32x round-robin and three morphing velocity layers for a smooth dynamic range. It has time-dependent release samples (15 different release times sampled) as well as time-dependent legato samples. The legato samples consist of hammer-ons and pull-off articulations sampled chromatically up to a minor 3rd upward and a minor 3rd downward as well as chromatic half-step slides. These legato samples were sampled at up to eight different transition times. We also sampled muted notes (8x round-robin), pre-roll samples (32x round-robin), muted slap samples (8x round-robin, 8 velocities), as well as slap releases (4x round-robin). The slap releases were sampled chromatically on each string, so they are specific release transitions from a sustained note.

We spent a lot of time making the interface and engine as flexible and customizable as possible, without forsaking instant playability. Essentially, we put you in complete control over how the mapping, tone, and other settings work, but have everything set to defaults that make it easy to load and start playing with minimal tweaking.

By emphasizing realism and playability, we’re confident that playing Evolution Electric Bass – Rick will give you the same excitement and inspiration as playing a real bass guitar.

Evolution Electric Bass – Rick features

  • Over 7 GB of samples (4.7 GB using Kontakt’s NCW lossless compressed format).
  • 32x round-robin, 3 morphing velocity layers, chromatically sampled.
  • Advanced scripting with legato articulations, slides, and much more.
  • Onboard amp/cab modeling, compressor, EQ, and chorus effects.
  • Internal factory presets as well as external preset system for easy sharing of presets.

The sample library is available for the introductory price of $79 USD until July 31st, 2013 (20% off regular $99 USD).
