FURIA Staccato Strings: A streamlined orchestral library designed solely for powerful ensemble string staccatos, Furia delivers instant gratification for film, TV, game & trailer scoring. The ideal tool for epic action string stabs and ostinatos, dramatic builds, and tense underscore rhythms!

FURIA - Key Features:

• Focused and powerful staccatos strings
• Instantly playable for fast, epic results
• Up to 16x round robin layers
• Ensemble size multiplier 1-8x
• Close + hall mic positions
• Easy envelope + sample shaping controls
• Brand-new virtual FX rack with randomizers
• Dozens of custom IRs - halls, rooms + more

String ensemble staccatos are a composer's best friend. Whether you need to accentuate dramatic rhythms in an action cue, create tension with a repeating ostinato line, build an epic swashbuckling main melody, or weave ominous arpeggiating textures, staccato strings are de facto standard.

Furia is a library tailor-made to deliver that very sound, and ONLY that sound. It is simple and streamlined, with no extraneous features or samples. As soon as you load it up and begin playing, you'll see the appeal of this elegant design. With no complex UI or exhaustive patch lists, you instead have an instant, highly-versatile staccato sound out-of-the-box.

Use Furia on its own with either (or both) of two included mic positions and a handy FX rack, or layer it with other orchestral sounds like our Bravura Scoring Brass for even more 'oomph'. Either way, we know you'll find it a fantastic and very practical tool for your template!

1. Ensemble Multiplier:
FSS was recorded with a 22-piece string ensemble. With this control, you can multiply the size of the ensemble up to 8x for an even more epic sound!

2. Timing Controls:
The Ensemble Timing knob controls the amount of random timing variation in the ensemble multiplier, while Sample Offset adjusts the sample playback to be more aggressive (at the cost of some pre-bow noise).

3. Mic Mixer:
Here you can load or unload either of the two included mic positions, plus change or automate their volume & stereo width.

4. Envelope Shaping:
Dial down the decay and sustain for a very tight and aggressive staccato sound, or turn them up with release to let each note ring out.

Selections from our brand-new, custom FX rack are also included with over 30 impulse responses to pick from. Or roll the dice with the (*) randomizer to inspire your creativity!

Below are required & recommended system specs for FURIA:
• Kontakt 5.3 or higher (FULL version, not player)
• 200MB disk space
• 2GB RAM
• Core i3 processor or better

Mystic is the second in the Photosynthesis line of Kontakt libraries, an ambient cello library aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need otherworldly pads and soundscapes, unique cello articulations, and creative instrument effects. 

Mystic is derived entirely from nearly 6 hours of cello recordings, processed and twisted into over 120 beautiful Kontakt instruments. Alongside the processed instruments are raw solo cello articulations. This isn't a standard cello library, so there's no legato or staccato patch, but rather unique playing styles like artificial harmonics, harmonic tremolos, sustained ricochets, sul ponticello, harmonic glissandos, and more

Mystic includes 127 Kontakt .nki instruments, and a 2.25GB library of samples in .wav format (sound designers rejoice!). It's powered by the free Photosynthesis Engine, which allows extensive control over shaping the sounds, and is designed to make importing your own samples and creating your own instruments easy.

Questionably Barbershop is a simple 4-piece male vocal ensemble, crafted in the style of an old timey Barbershop Quartet. Featuring the humble vocal talents of our own Mike Peaslee, Gregg Stephens and Spencer Nunamaker, this library offers basic chromatic sustains and staccato articulations, improvised scat and bebop phrases and even a couple of classic Americana folk song construction kits that are broken down line-by-line with each vocal part directly accessible in several different root keys. From a deep booming bass to a soaring high tenor falsetto, Questionably Barbershop gives you easy 4-part harmony in a box.

Each one of our singers (Mike: Tenor Lead, Gregg: Baritone, Spencer: Bass and ‘Mikey’: Tenor Falsetto) performed 3 types of sustains and staccatos: Doo, Lah and Woh. Using our custom GUI controls, these 3 different sounds can also act as pure Oo, Ah and Oh vowel sounds, with adjustable durations and attack shaping. Our advanced scripting gives you automatic 4-part harmony voicing in the Ensemble Sustains and Staccatos presets, ensuring that you always hear the Lead first, the Bass in his appropriate range and the Tenor for those piercing high notes! And for a big male chorus sound, you can select the "Unison” mode for all four voices over the whole key range. We even give you Auto-pan feature to intelligently spread the singers over the stereo field for a nice wide sound.

The Scat ’N Bebop phrase section includes 356 improvised phrases, with real-time tempo-synching and time-stretching. Phrases are included in the root keys of C, E, and G# with easy transposition to other keys. You’ll also find our DSP Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, with dozens of our favorite rooms, halls, chambers, cathedrals and FX impulses.

Loopmasters Live House Strings WAV REX-AUDIOSTRiKE Loopmasters Live House Strings WAV REX-AUDIOSTRiKE
Loopmasters proudly present a stunning collection of Live House Strings recorded and produced at the Monster Sounds studios featuring timeless multi tracked Violin loops that will lift your House productions.

Over the years many classic house tracks have used strings mostly played in from soft synths or re sampled from old disco recordings, so going back to the origins of house music from seminal tracks like Derrick Mays "Strings of Life "we thought it was about time there was a violin sample pack inspired by house music, full of nuances and tone that only a real instrument and player can deliver. With chart topping groups like Clean Bandit using real violin and Cello in their tracks, its shows live strings still have their place and sound great in today’s modern productions.

For each loop to give as full and wide a sound as possible we have recorded multiple layers in different microphone positions to eliminate phasing issues.

To build your tracks and to give you full creative control we have split each idea out into its component layers, low, mid, high, or separate melody lead lines and chords and supplied them as separate loops so you have full control of the mix. This means you can easily remove any elements that are too busy in the mix. For those that want the instant impact there is a bounce of the full idea to simply drop into your production.

The Loops are recorded at 120 and 122 bpm these loops will suit many different styles of House music with direct and memorable melodies, driving top lines and also house inspired chord sequences. The loops will also work well with other genres such as Disco, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop and Drum and Bass.As a Bonus we have also included a classic house style piano line for each string idea, this helps to see how the string lines fit in situ so you can quickly get a vibe for the string lines underlying melody.

In detail expect to find 785Mb of 24Bit 44.1 kHz with 163 String Loops over 29 themes plus 30 Piano Loops and 193 Rex2 Files

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.
