ProjectSAM updates Lumina to v1.1

ProjectSAM Lumina

ProjectSAM has announced version 1.1 of its Lumina virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Featuring full orchestra, choir, smaller ensembles and a wide range of guest instruments, LUMINA dives into the world of fantasy, mystery and animation, adding depth and delicacy to your musical palette.

Based on more recordings than ever before, this third volume in the SYMPHOBIA series is ProjectSAM’s most ambitious release yet.

Changes in Lumina v1.1

  • Section splits for textures: New sessions were booked to record individual sections for the library’s textures, totaling 7 GB* of new content. In Lumina 1.1, the majority of orchestral textures now offer the ability to perform the following sections individually: strings, choir, woodwind, piano/harp/percussion. The exact secctions available differ per texture instrument.
  • New stories: Lumina 1.1 doubles the amount of Stories in the library to 16. Among the new Stories are New Seoul, Round Table and Smoking Gun. Some of them utilize the new section splits. Stories are intended as inspiring starting points for cues, and ProjectSAM intends continue to expand on this concept.
  • Other new 1.1 features:
    • New miscellaneous textures instrument.
    • Global speed control for all textrues.
    • On-screen Story programming info.
    • Updated and streamlined GUI design.

Time+Space intros Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases by Zero-G

Zero-G Pepetuo Live Flute Phrases

Time+Space has announced the release of Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases, a new Zero-G library

Following the success of Animato, Spiritoso and Luminoso, Dan Graham has joined forces again with Zero-G to produce the next library in the series ‘Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases‘.

Performed by a world-class flute and piccolo player from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded in Liverpool’s famous Parr Street studios, Perpetuo is an 8Gb collection of thousands of live recorded looped phrases designed for use with Kontakt v5.2.

Despite the sixty-two Kontakt instruments being made from pre-recorded phrases, Perpetuo remains highly controllable and flexible. This has been achieved by recording the same patterns across a wide pitch and dynamic range with many scale variations, by choosing patterns that blend in well to a wide variety of musical styles, and then by allowing you to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects with a wide variety of rhythm and scale types all controlled with key switches.

Dynamic levels pp to ff can be smoothly crossfaded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be cleverly zoomed from solo to three players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.

Perpetuo gives you the advantages of fluidity and realism of recorded patterns and phrases and yet also many of the advantages of the flexibility of a standard orchestral library.

The Perputuo library is available to purchase from Time+Space for RRP £79.95 GBP / 94.95 EUR / $119 USD.

Wallander Instruments releases NotePerformer for Sibelius

NotePerformer

Wallander Instruments has announced the release of NotePerformer for Sibelius, an orchestral sound library that turns written score into an expressive musical performance, without user intervention.

NotePerformer replaces the built-in sounds in the world’s best selling music notation software, Avid’s Sibelius, with its own playback engine and sounds.

NotePerformer introduces a dramatic improvement on existing MIDI playback technologies, by reading ahead in the score during playback, analyzing the music, and rendering the music as an expressive musical performance instead of processing it note-by-note. This allows an accurate reproduction of the written music, with realistic musical phrasing for every single member of your virtual orchestra.

Composers, orchestrators, musicians and students of music can now enjoy the benefits of highly realistic orchestral playback in their notation program. NotePerformer playback is even accurate enough for producing a high-quality orchestral mock-up of a score, directly from notation program playback.

NotePerformer is available to purchase for $129 USD.
