Audio Imperia has announced the release of a new Kontakt Player-powered instrument library that puts a vast collection of lyrical and expressive orchestral soloists under one single roof.

An incredibly comprehensive collection with a pronounced sound, Solo aims to expand the level of emotion and expression within your music with minimal to no tweaking.

You wanted more, we delivered. We recorded 13, yes, you read that right, thirteen new instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Trumpet, French Horn, Descant Horn, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon, Soprano Angelic and Soprano Operatic. 100% new recordings.

We recorded two types of legato for each instrument: Rebowed and Slurred for Strings, Fingered and Retongued for Woodwinds and Brass, Aah and Ooh for the Sopranos. You can even switch between the two types of legato without using key-switches, by using either velocity or CC.

We recorded just one dynamic layer on legato articulations, which is actually better for solo instruments. The less crossfades you do, the less phasing artifacts you get. This unique dynamic layer contains all the musicality and emotion you will ever need. The recipe: slight crescendo-diminuendos, some progressive vibrato, and voilà. It just works.
