Acousticsamples releases Sunbird acoustic guitar instrument

Acousticsamples has released Sunbird, a virtual instrument library based on a 1962 Gibson Humming acoustic guitar.

Acousticsamples Sunbird

We recorded it with a pair of DPA microphones to get a detailed stereo perspective, with a U87 to capture the Bass and a precise mono perspective and using a contact pickup in case you want to put the library through an amp simulation plugin.

We sampled it very deeply, all frets of all strings with upstrokes, downstrokes, round robins, releases, staccatos, mutes, palm mutes, hand blocks, slides, hammer ons, pull offs, retriggers, fretnoises, percussions other articulations. All of these details allow us to reproduce the real playing of a guitar player, and easily.

There are basically 4 modes (that you can choose using keyswitches, G5 to C6), the solo mode that allows to play melodies, the chord mode that helps playing strums or picking very easily, the patterns mode that does all of the strumming or picking for you and the MIDI mode that allows you to use your preffered midi guitar controler.

Sunbird features

  • 8.16Gb uncompressed, 1.53Gb compressed in lossless flac format, around 13300 samples.
  • Strumming engine (features chord recognition and a smart strumming technique to produce guitar-like chords) and complete control of all its parameters.
  • 67 realistic patterns for easy strumming, picking and advanced playing styles.
  • Integrated song builder to create songs within minutes and very easily
  • Integrated pattern builder to automatically strum your chords
  • Legato script to play natural hammer ons, pull offs and slides.
  • Natural hand placement simulation.
  • 39 different samples per fret and all 21 fret sampled for each string.
  • Multi velocity Hammer on, pull off, slides up, slides down, mutes, ghost notes, pre notes.
  • Included sparkVerb©.
  • Control over the two microphones perspectives and pickup volumes.
  • Advanced bend control.
  • Advanced UVI scripting giving you access to a simple yet powerfull interface and advanced features.
  • and more…

Sunbird for UVI Workstation 2 and MachFive 3 is available for purchase for 119 EUR.

Gospelmusicians releases Pure Synth Platinum Urban Workstation

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Gospelmusicians has announced the official release of Pure Synth Platinum, a software based rompler and synthesis library that has all of the bread-and-butter samples of a traditional hardware keyboard, combined with all of the synthesis techniques available in the most complex of digital and analog synthesizers.

Gospelmusicians Pure Platinum Synth

That is the concept of Pure Synth Platinum: We give you a “pure synth” in which to create any sound imaginable, rather than just giving you rompler style static samples that you cannot tweak much. Worst of all, if you ever want new inspiration and new sounds, you have to keep buying a ton of expansion packs with more samples, when you’d rather create your own unique custom sounds with the software you already have. We also have professional synth programmers from around the world ready and willing to program new patches, for those of you who rather not worry about programming and just want to play.

Our goal with PSP was to create a very unique hybrid synthesizer and rompler combo that would act as a complete synthesizer rather than giving you just a sample based player where, in many cases, the effects, LFO, amp, and other synthesis techniques are “caked” into the samples. Sure with a rompler, you can tweak the sounds and add effects, but the control you have is limited. Conversely, a synthesizer gives you the raw analog and digital waveforms in which to tweak your own sounds and control the actual wave shaping parameters of the waveform. The bad thing about pure synthesis oscillators (wavetable, FM, analog, etc..) are that they are not good for acoustic type of sounds. This is where PSP comes in! You actually get all of the acoustic waveforms indicative of what samples offer as well as an amazing arsenal of digital and analog synthesis techniques: Analog, Wavetable, Superwave, FM, Transient/Drum, Sub Oscillator, and Noise Generator. All of these synthesis techniques are available to you per oscillator and you can mix and match synthesis and/or samples as you wish.

Combining synthesis and rompler samples allows you to create a very unique hybrid sound, so you can shape and create your sounds how you like. Most of the EDM stuff out there is really starting to all sound the same and we didn’t want to do that. We wanted to create a very unique platform in which you feel as if you have a REAL synthesizer. That’s what made old school synthesizers such as the JD-800, D-50, EX5, and the Wavestation so unique. They had their own character and personality and the sound was original and special! This is what PSP aims to do and we feel we have done it very well. We have basically included virtually all of MachFive’s capabilities (synthesis, samples, effects filters, modulations, arp/gate, SparkVerb) available in a beautiful GUI form.

Pure Synth Platinum features

  • 5.2GB (uncompressed) Samples.
  • 2.1 GB FLAC Losses Compression (HQ).
  • 514 Presets (More Presets to come).
  • 6,232 Multi-Samples.
  • 328 Individual Sample Waveforms used for oscillators.
  • Over 1,600 Wavetables with PWM.
  • Over 30 Different effects per oscillator.
  • Analog Synthesizer with PWM and Sync.
  • 8-Oscillator Superwave for phat stacked synths.
  • Transient Drum Synth for drum and/or transient sounds.
  • FM Synthesizer with 6-Operators.
  • Dedicated Sub Oscillator.
  • White Noise Generator with 11 different generators.
  • ASR-10/DP4 Warm Reverb Emulations.
  • 2-Filters per Oscillator with over 50 different filter choices.
  • Classic Oberheim Xpander Filter emulations with 37 modes.
  • 2-LFO’s per Oscillator.
  • Over 30 Different Effects per Oscillator.
  • Arp/Gate per Oscillator for Complex Sequences.

Pure Synth Platinum is available for the introductory price of $149.99 USD until September 12th, 2014 (regular $299 USD). Customers who have purchased any of the Gospel Musicians sound libraries can crossgrade for $99.99 USD.

Gospelmusicians intros Pure Synth Platinum for UVI

Gospelmusicians has introduced Pure Synth Platinum, a virtual instrument for UVI.

Gospelmusicians Pure Synth Platinum

Have you ever wondered why you could never find a software synthesizer that is as good sounding and flexible as the hardware synthesizer/keyboards such as a Motif, Fantom, or Kronos? Have you ever wished you could just pull up an array of patches and sounds just like you would with your hardware keyboard or synth? Remember the old days when a synth or keyboard had a ton of sounds that did not sound super realistic, but had a ton of character, expressiveness, and was just down right fun to play? Well, this is what Pure Synth Platinum is!

Pure Synth Platinum (PSP) is a software based rompler AND synthesis library that has all of the bread-and-butter samples of a traditional hardware keyboard, combined with all of the synthesis techniques available in the most complex of digital and analog synthesizers. That is the concept of PSP: We give you the “pure waveforms” in which to create any sound imaginable, rather than just giving you rompler style/static, samples that you cannot tweak much. Worst of all, if you ever want new inspiration and new sounds, you have to keep buying a ton of expansion packs with more samples, when you’d rather create your own unique custom sounds with the software you already have. But what if you are not a synth programmer? That is fine! We have professional synth programmers from around the world ready and willing to program new patches, so that you don’t have to do all of the work.

Pure Synth Platinum features

  • 5.2GB (uncompressed) Samples.
  • 2.1 GB FLAC Losses Compression (HQ).
  • 514 Presets.
  • 6,232 Multi-Samples.
  • 328 Individual Sample Waveforms used for oscillators.
  • Over 1,600 Wavetables with PWM.
