It's a very intimate sound, and works especially well on the Celli and Violas. In this series, Eli covers both the plug-in and how you can integrate it into your workflow to make beautiful sounding string parts and arrangements. Up to six keyswitchable articulations are available in Production presets. This could inspire a new wave of Prog Baroque concept albums. In these circumstances, as many as 12 voices are playing at once for each note, and this can mount up to 24 when playing notes that fall within positional crossfade zones.
Ironically, when large-interval transitions are played with the polyphonic sustain articulation and butt-joined notes, the release samples provide enough glue to create fairly seamless joins. Get started the right way and build your solid foundation in Pro Tools 8 now. While studying music in college I discovered Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Highly recommend watching this to get the most out of the software. A modern interface and several smart play assistance features help spark creativity. Next, discover the Phrase Animator and how to use its playback mode to generate phrases that will follow your chords, including ways to modify and vary the collections of patterns for realistic and interesting parts.
When did you start dabbling in music? The violins sound best in their lowest octave, but above that the sustaining articulations feel like they lose momentum. There is not a more thorough single offering for Logic 9. Articulations comprised between one and three velocity layers, depending on type; the lowest two adjacent layers could optionally be crossfaded using the mod wheel, for more naturalistic dynamic expression, instead of the default key-velocity switching method. You also get the full Logic Project and audio files so you can mix or remix along in real-time! But, in hindsight, it was a decision of epic importance in my life - shaping my future as much as the music of Milt Jackson and Charlie Parker did fifteen years prior. Performance presets are optimised for live performance, offering up to five immediately accessible articulations, triggered by predetermined conditions.
Portamento is a faster, more subtle version of the glissando articulation, and again works best when treated in the same way as glissandi. The samples accurately convey the old instruments, played by session professionals in a well-known German studio. The Equaliser comprises Low, Mid and High bands, each with gain and variable centre frequency controls. Film composers and studio owners all over the city were calling me. I wish the last video was longer or there were more examples like this. In this series, Eli covers both the plug-in and how you can integrate it into your workflow to make beautiful sounding string parts and arrangements.
Use the existing configuration of the instruments or create your own ensemble with the participation of up to 22 players. From there, Eli explains how to Set Up and Trigger Articulations using the Articulation Window. Finally, I now understand all of the features that Session Strings Pro 2 has to offer. A modern interface and several smart playback features help to light the creative. Take control of an 11-piece ensemble, recorded with the utmost precision in four different settings for maximum flexibility and realism. This kind of stuff becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.
In order to maintain a consistent level, the wheel has to be constantly moving — if only just a little bit — whenever new notes are played. Whether it's instructional videos, creating music, working with a studio client, performing with my band, or teaching at the schools - my days are filled with what I love doing. Multiple velocity layers and provide a wide expressive range. Despite the limitations, it was fun, but begged a more flexible implementation. Given the current fashion for large-scale cinematic string libraries, it's interesting that Native Instruments have chosen not to follow the 'me too' path, opting instead to fill a gap in the market with this scaled-down ensemble. Play full ensembles, mapped across the keyboard, or individual instrument groups. From beginning to end, leaving no features or functions behind, you'll learn the important basics and cool advanced topics that will have you creating realistic, big sounding horn parts and melodies in no time! An 11-piece ensemble, recorded in four different settings for impeccable, natural, flexible sound — the premium choice for pop, RnB, commercial or scoring use.
Don't waste any more time, learn how to use it like a pro today. I bring that excitement and passion to each and every training product I create. But do you really know how to effectively use it, or better yet, how to not use it? Genesis, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and Yes. These videos aren't a rehashed Logic 8 offering, they're completely new videos shot entirely in the new Logic 9. Meticulously sampled and designed to sit well in the mix, each of the four ensembles consists of five ins- trument groups: full ensemble, four violins, three violas, two cellos and two basses.
You're not restricted to compound time, either: patterns can easily be made to cycle around odd numbers of steps. Young and cocky, and armed with only a partial University degree, I dropped out of school and began playing steady commercial hotel engagements and jazz gigs when I could. So dig in and learn to sculpt your sound like a true sonic artist. My personal feeling is that their loudest dynamic is underplayed, and a smidgeon more vibrato wouldn't have gone amiss to impart a more energetic feel. It was in this graduate program - in the early nineties - that I found myself drawn to the fledgling emerging universe of hard disc recording and midi sequencing.
Thomas Koritke and his team have succeeded in capturing the clarity, warmth, and character of these strings, using the very best equipment for outstanding sound quality. Section 2 employs the same orchestral seating, but with the mics placed further from the players. Choose from traditional or modern locations to adjust the stereo positioning of the sections. So glad I got this! Create your own patterns with a choice of articulations, note lengths, and time signatures. In addition to this was the Animator, a built-in sequencer that played chords in a rhythmical pattern using a staccato, spiccato or pizzicato articulation.
