Orange Tree Samples updates Evolution Acoustic Guitar – Steel Strings for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples Evolution Acoustic Guitar Steel Strings

Orange Tree Samples has updated the Evolution Acoustic Guitar – Steel Strings sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt, featuring a completely new interface and a rewritten scripting engine.

Evolution Acoustic Guitar – Steel Strings enables keyboardists to easily and quickly create authentic sounding electric guitar parts without the need to hand edit MIDI.

Changes in Evolution Acoustic Guitar – Steel Strings

  • Pick position modeling. This feature realistically reproduces the timbral differences of a string plucked in different areas.
  • External presets. All the effects, mapping, and performance settings can now be stored in external preset files. That means that you don’t have to reload the entire library to audition different presets. It also means that the presets can be easily shared with other Evolution users.
  • Reduced memory footprint. Using dynamic sample purging, the Evolution guitar engine only loads the articulations you’re currently using to reduce memory usage and speed up loading time.

The sound library is available to purchase for the (re)introductory price of $139 USD until June 30th, 2012 (regular $179 USD).

Orange Tree Samples updates Evolution Electric Guitar Strawberry for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples has updated its Evolution Electric Guitar Strawberry guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

After a year in development, we’re pleased to announce the release of the new Evolution guitar engine. We completely redesigned the interface and the scripting to greatly increase the playability and ease-of-use of the library. We’ve applied the updated engine to the Strawberry electric guitar sample library, and will soon release the Steel Strings acoustic guitar library as well. Future guitars in the Evolution series will also use the new engine.

Orange Tree Samples releases Cherry Electric Bass

Orange Tree Samples has released Cherry Electric Bass, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples Cherry Electric Bass

We’ve combined the most common bass playing techniques–fingered, muted fingered, picked, muted picked, and slapped articulations–into a detailed, easy-to-use solution for virtual bass. We sampled the five-string bass all the way down to its low B string, giving you plenty of room in the low notes. The bass was sampled directly from its output jack (DI), giving you the freedom of applying your own EQ, compressor, and other effects. Even completely dry, the bass has a full, deep tone, and easily fits right into any mix.

Cherry Electric Bass has over 2.5 GB of samples (compressed via Kontakt’s lossless NCW compression to 1.4 GB), powered by extensive scripting to maximize these samples, not only making the sample library ultra-realistic, but very playable and easy to sequence with. Whether you’re sequencing the bass track note by note or performing it live from a MIDI keyboard, the combination of high quality samples and extensive scripting makes your bass track sound like a live bassist.

Cherry Electric Bass features

  • Over 2.5 GB of 24-bit samples (compressed to 1.4 GB using Kontakt’s lossless NCW compression).
  • Sampled down to a low B.
  • Up to 8x round-robin.
  • Automatic hammer-on, pull-off, slide up, slide down legato articulations.
  • Customizable mapping system that allows you to map the articulations by velocity, controller, keyswitch, or whichever method you prefer.
  • Lots of effects, such as slides, muted notes, fret noises, string slaps, and much more.

Cherry Electric Bass for Kontakt 4/5 is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until February 29th at 11:59 PM PST (regular $129 USD). Owners of the discontinued CoreBass Cherry sample libraries are eligible for a special upgrade discount.

Orange Tree Samples Passion Flute sample library for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of the Passion Flute, a jazz-rock sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples Passion Flute

This extensive library puts you in control of an ultra-realistic Jazz-Rock flute. Whether you need an energetic flute solo or an emotive, rich lead for a melodic ballad, Passion Flute is capable of a wide range of expression.

Flutes are complex instruments with many dynamic facets of expression, and therefore are challenging to recreate with samples. That’s why rather than sampling dozens of different articulations to imitate performance techniques, we’ve used advanced scripting to give you full control over the flute performance. For example, the vibrato is completely scripted–and not just a simple LFO, but modeled from real flute vibrato–allowing you to control the vibrato depth and speed in real-time. Also, although we sampled the flute in five dynamics, we added scripting that smoothly morphs between these dynamics using mathematically-accurate equal-power crossfades. Passion Flute’s interface allows you to assign these performance elements to any MIDI continuous controller you want–or you can let the script automatically control them for you.

Passion Flute features the great Jazz flutist/composer, Mattan Klein. Mattan performs all over the world, and has played at places such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington DC, and many other prestigious venues. He also was featured at the Tel Aviv International Jazz Festival in 2009 and the Ottawa International Writers Festival. In addition to touring North America, Mattan has toured Brazil, Europe, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.

We sampled the flute in 48,000 kHz, 24-bit, which is a great balance between size on your hard drive (affecting the library’s load time and memory usage) and audio fidelity. That’s over 4,600 samples, totaling 1.15 GB of flute samples. Furthermore, we sampled the flute with five different microphones, everything from modern condenser mics to a vintage ribbon mic, giving you flexibility to mix the flute however you want–or pick from the included factory presets. The mic signals were completely unaffected, so Passion Flute’s real-time mixing control starts all the way back with the raw audio signals. Speaking of mixing, we also included the ability to import and export your flute mix presets. That way, you can easily share them with other Passion Flute users.

Passion Flute features

  • 4x round robin, 5 morphing dynamic layers.
  • Modeled vibrato, with real-time control over speed and depth.
  • Overblown notes, playable harmonics.
  • Effects and phrases including growls, fluttertonguing, screams, and much more.
  • Physically modeled flute fingerings (including 150+ alternate fingerings) for accurate key noises and realistic legato.
  • Wind/breath controller compatible.
  • 5 mic positions with extensive mixing engine included.
  • Sampled in 24-bit / 48 KHz.

Passion Flute is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until December 31st, 2011 (regular $129 USD). Passion Flute requires the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontkat 4/5.

A rarely sampled instrument, TinyBox adds a unique element to your compositions, whether you write rock/pop songs or soundtracks for various media.

TinyBox features 14 alternate samples per tone and two sets of samples: clean and dirty.

We’ve also included both tuned and untuned sample modes as well. TinyBox is capable of everything from pure, bell-like tones to raw, detuned plucks.

TinyBox features

  • 694 MB of samples, compressed down to 314 MB with KONTAKT’s lossless NCW format.
  • Sampled using Korg’s 1-bit/2.8MHz recording technology, then converted to 24-bit 96khz, providing exquisite sound quality.
  • 14x round-robin alternating samples.
  • Clean / dirty samples, with tuned / untuned option.
  • Adjustable pre-roll samples for added realism.

TinyBox is available to purchase for the introductory price of $14.95 USD until June 30, 2011 (regular price $19.95 USD). TinyBox is available at no cost for owners of Elan Hickler’s original music box library.
