Audiobro LASS First Chair 2.0 KONTAKT
Audiobro LASS First Chair 2.0 KONTAKT
We are proud to announce LASS First Chair 2 (LASS FC 2), one of the 2 reduced sound sets of LASS Full 2‘s library. LASS FC 2 features solo instruments performed by the section leaders. Rather than sounding like "guest soloists,” these instruments sound like the first chair players they actually are, blending perfectly with the sections they came from.

While LASS FC 2 does not include LASS Full 2′s ARC (Audiobro Remote Control), all of LASS FC 2′s patches are the same as LASS Full’s "First Chair” patches… with the exception of not including LASS Full’s Stage and Color features.

However, we did add a taste of our new Color technology to LASS FC 2. There is a new "Color” button that lets you use our Bat Man Color profile. Pre-programmed Multis are included so you can simply load them up and play!!

LASS FC 2 is a great way to be introduced to the LA Scoring Strings concept and there is a dollar-for-dollar upgrade path (based on the current sale price of the product) to the full version of LA Scoring Strings (see store for more details).

Please visit the LASS Full’s 2 page to get an idea of what LASS 2 patches can do… keeping in mind that the ARC and Stage & Color are not included in LASS Lite 2 or LASS First Chair 2. (listen to LASS demos)

Here are some new features the LASS 2 update includes (LASS Lite 2 and FC 2’s features are in green — LASS Full 2 has all the features):

•New exclusive reverb Impulse Responses. We’ve included a single Color Profile (Bat Man) from LASS Full 2 that you can enjoy. Pre-built Multis are already set up for you.
•Legato Tremolo patches
•Legato Trill patches
•Micro Tuning and real-time performance of tuning.
•A CC Attenuation knob that allows on to ride CC attenuation in real-time or after-the-fact for added dynamic control.
•A new User Interface that is easier to read and more pleasurable to look at.
•New Master Patches that consolidated articulation options that would have previously been on multiple patches.
•Stage and Color – At the heart of Stage & Color is a collection of exclusive orchestral sound profiles (colors) inspired by famous movie scores and recordings. Now, at the push of a button, LASS can adopt the tonal characteristics of some of the most coveted scores and recordings.
•A new ARC (Audiobro Remote Control) master script that will allow for dramatically easier control of all sections and divisis from a single window.
•Reverb and width controls of multiple patches from within the ARC.
•ART programming of multiple patches from within the ARC.
•CC Table control of multiple patches from within the ARC.
•Auto Arranger control of multiple patches from within the ARC.
•A new Key Switching approach of multiple patches from within the ARC.
•Aleatoric (string effects) patches
•A drastically reduced footprint of only about 18Gb due to the inclusion of NI’s NCW (loss-less compression audio file format) files. We include the 24 bit files since it will be about 30% less taxing on your hard drive than a 24 .wav file. We noticed no measurable CPU hit using the NCW files… and we did a lot of testing.
•Many other new features and improvements

The main difference between LASS FC 2 and the full version is that LASS FC 2 does not contain the Divisi Sections or the Full mix patches or the ARC (Audiobro Remote Control — a LASS Full 2.0 feature only). The chart below shows what patches and articulations come with LASS FC 2. All the "blue” patches come with LASS Lite 2 (the "green” are for LASS FC 2 and everything else is included in the full version of LASS).

LASS FC 2 is a Kontakt based sample library and runs on Kontakt 5.02 or Kontakt Player 5.02. Kontakt Player 5 is available as a free download from Native Instruments’ website.

Whats the difference between LASS FC 2 and LASS FULL 2 ?

While LASS FC 2 offers you first chair (solo) patches, it does not contain the divisi ensemble patches or the "Full Mix” patches. Nor does it include the ARC (Audiobro Remote Control) which is a LASS Full 2.0 feature only. However, the patches included in LASS Lite work exactly the same way as the same patches in the full version of LASS (minus the ARC)… there is no difference in the patch functionality. You still get the great ART script and Auto Arranger script and every other script that comes with the full version of LASS… just not the divisi or first chair patches or the Stage & Color feature.

LASS FC 2 is a downloadable library and uses the new Native Instruments NCW loss-less compression in 16 bit format to save you hard disk space and also reduce your download times.

Furthermore, LASS LS can now sound like some of the most coveted film scores and orchestral recordings with or without the ARC by simply accessing a Color drop-down menu on the front panel; or, you can chose Colors using the ARC that comes with LASS Full 2.5. Our Batman Cries Sordino Multi is a perfect example of this. Read more about the ARC and Stage and Color included in LASS Full 2

Soundethers Announces Fall KONTAKT Soundethers Announces Fall KONTAKT
Soundethers has released Free Fall, a freely downloadable ambient soundscape library for Native Instruments Kontakt and all WAV compatible sampler instruments.

Free Fall contains a set of fourteen NI Kontakt instruments and six multi patches. The instruments are based on the brilliant free Photosynthesis NKI script by Jeremiah Pena. Although the full version of Kontakt is required in order to run the provided patches without a fifteen minute time limit, the library also contains a set of 24-bit WAV files which can be used in pretty much any sampler out there.

The included sounds are pretty neat, definitely something that will be appreciated by a majority electronica producers and film score composers. If abstract soundscapes and deep evolving textures are your thing, chances are you should give this freebie a try.

Free Fall features:

All sounds carefully tuned (to C3)
All instruments with custom Mod Wheel automations
Pre-Assigned High Pass Filter (CC74) – Low Pass Filter (CC 71)
Made in the Free Photosynthesis Engine by Jeremiah Pena
18 patches, 173 mb uncompressed, (1 zip file)
Wave / ncw – 44,100 – 24 bit resolution
Requires Kontakt 5.5 full version
Nicolas Signat Alive Littles V1 KONTAKT Nicolas Signat Alive Littles V1 KONTAKT
Here's your new sandbox full of toys! 88 instruments are waiting for you inside the main Kontakt patch. All samples have been recorded very close with high-end equipment (Nagra LB, KM185, Blue Dragonfly, AT4050, Rode NT4) in high definition (88.2kHz 24bit) in dry rooms. 

Every sample is 'alive' and dynamic due to 10 random robins for every recording! Our GUI gives you access to a lot of transformations and modulations, all based on velocity. You can set filters, pitch, stereo effects and panning, ADSR envelope, play in reverse, offset and volume sound by sound. 

You can choose to use random robins or not. Moreover, we added some great global effects on a second tab with a transient designer, EQ, flanger, chorus, phaser, tape saturator, lo-fi (bit crusher) and reverb. 

Features:

• 5 main patches which are presets for the whole sandbox. 
• 32 chromatic instruments
• 19 sound design patches made from the same sample pool! 

The Sound Designer patches are unique little instruments in their own right. We will try and produce some examples of these as soon as we can.

NOTE: For the full retail version of Kontakt 5.3.1.37 or above only. Will only work in 'Demo' mode if you have the free version of Kontakt Player.
