Time+Space has announced a sweepstakes in which you can win the Lumina and Orchestral Essentials cinematic libraries from ProjectSAM.
From horror, fear and disgust to amusement, joy and tenderness, ProjectSAM’s incredible virtual instruments have helped many a composer take audiences on a gripping emotional rollercoaster ride.
With the best selling Symphobia 1 and Symphobia 2 firmly bedded into the studio setups of composers and music producers around the world, ProjectSAM recently unleashed the much anticipated third volume – Lumina.
Already reaping press awards and dubbed by Music Tech magazine as ‘perfect’, ‘inspiring’ and ‘expressive’, Lumina takes you on an evocative journey through worlds brimming with fantasy and mystery thanks to the stunning combination of orchestral and choir ensembles. The library also pays homage to the playful world of cartoons with dedicated ensembles and phrases for careful tiptoeing and tongue-in-cheek suspense.
This month, ProjectSAM’s distributor Time+Space have a copy of Lumina worth £840.00 to give away to one very lucky winner!
PLUS two runners up will each win a copy of Orchestral Essentials – a great value cinematic package that combines carefully selected elements taken from existing ProjectSAM libraries with new instruments not found in any other product making it an all-round solution for hobbyists and serious composers alike.
The competition ends June 30th, 2013.

8Dio Productions has announced that its Adagio Basses Vol. 1 sample library for Kontakt is available to pre-order.
Adagio Basses is our fourth release in the Adagio Series – featuring both Ensemble (4), Divisi (2) and Solo Basses. The library contains 9 different types of legato, 25+ dynamic bowing types, 15 loures and gorgeous deep-sampled short notes.
The Basses have historically been the “forgotten” instrument when it comes to string sampling, due to its lower and less prominent register. We decided to take the opposite approach and record the instrument with depth, passion and lushness. The result is the most comprehensive sample library on the market in regards to emotional and realistic orchestral basses. We ♥ it and we think you will ♥ it too.
Adagio Basses Vol. 1 is available to pre-order at the introductory price of $149 USD until May 1st, 2013 (regular $199 USD). The library is scheduled for release on April 29th, 2013.
