8Dio releases CAGE String Edition orchestral effects for Kontakt

8Dio CAGE String

8Dio Productions has announced the release of CAGE String, the first title in a series of orchestral effects libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The CAGE String Edition contains an articulation list second and comes in high-resolution wave (.wav / 24 bit / 96khz format). We wanted to create something definitive and unrivaled. The String Edition alone contains over 1100 articulations and it is near impossible to find an effect not covered.

The incredible depth of articulations is supported by our custom CAGE Chaos Engine, which contains over 80.000 lines of code. The CAGE Chaos Engine allows you to take complete control of the samples and you can control over 1.500 sample parameters with a single click. In addition you can also randomize all the rack-fx (ex. trance-gate, filters, EQ).

So imagine having the deepest set of articulations with an incredibly intuitive and powerful Chaos Engine. An infinity of possibilities.

CAGE Strings is available to purchase for the introductory price of $419 USD until April 1st, 2014 (regular $499 USD). The library is also included in the CAGE Bundle incl. pre-order of CAGE Brass (March 5th) and CAGE Woodwinds (March 12th), priced at $897 USD.

Spitfire releases Mural Symphonic Strings Vol 1 for Kontakt

Spitfire Audio Mural

Spitfire Audio has launched Mural Symphonic Strings Vol 1, a new British Modular Range series sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

After the masterful simplicity of the Albion – epic ‘out-of-the-box’ orchestral ensembles and the finely crafted detail and beauty of the Sable chamber string range, Spitfire at last are creating the ultimate symphonic-sized detailed string collection as part of their comprehensive British Modular Range. Spitfire’s long term project to create the greatest sounding, deepest sampled and ultimately future proofed living orchestral virtual instruments collection on the planet today.

Mural offers a grand 60 piece string band (16, 14, 12, 10, 8) but is recorded and performed in such a way as to provide you with ultimate detail. It is not an epic dirgy sludge of trailer-making strings. It is pure in its detail and beauty and is designed to encourage and inspire you to write better orchestral music for your canon.

The library is available to purchase with an introductory 15% discount off the regular price of £399 GBP for the first two weeks.

Kong Audio

Kong Audio has announced Chinee Orchestra SE, a collection of 27 Chinese instruments, plus one set of Chinese percussion.

The Standard Edition is a streamlined version of Chinee Orchestra Full Edition, with a much smaller size and a more affordable pricetag.

“The result is satisfying,” says DongSheng Shan, CEO of Kong Audio, “even though it seems like a simple library, it actually is gorgeously expressive, thanks to the use of QIN engine’s Extenders.”

Shan says Kong Audio’s design philosophy has always been to keep the size down and make the instruments as slick as possible, while keeping it expressive. This old school approach is especially manifested in the creation of Chinee Orchestra SE.

“What is interesting is that a simplified instrument actually sounds more closer to being an ideal instrument. So we believe even the professionals may prefer to use this Standard Edition than the Full Edition sometimes,” says Shan.

Chinee Orchestra SE is scheduled to be released in February, 2014.

Spotlight Strings features

The library is available to purchase for $249 USD.

Kirk Hunter has also launched a Group Buy, offering up to 50% off every major Kirk Hunter Studios sample library.
