      Berlin, June 29th, 2020 – Native Instruments today releases STRADIVARI VIOLIN, which meticulously captures the authentic sound of a one-of-a-kind instrument from the world’s most renowned violin maker, Antonio Stradivari. Built in 1727, the ‘Vesuvius’ violin was painstakingly sampled in the rich acoustic environment of Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi in Cremona, Italy – the town where the instrument was built. Chromatically sampled notes, phase-aligned velocity crossfades, performance-captured vibrato, 20 articulations, and mixable mic positions enable composers and producers to create highly expressive, realistic solo violin parts with a unique timbre almost 300 years in the making.

       
      STRADIVARI VIOLIN is the culmination of several years of collaborative planning and execution by Native Instruments, e-instruments, and the Museo del Violino in Cremona, Italy. The violin was sampled with master musicians in the Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi – an acoustically rich concert hall designed by pioneering acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota. To help capture the most pristine representation of the violin possible, the mayor of Cremona asked townspeople to keep noise levels down and blocked traffic around the concert hall during recording.
       
      With an extensive array of unique performance capabilities, STRADIVARI VIOLIN enables users to produce extremely realistic, expressive parts. For example, phase-aligned velocity crossfades on long articulations facilitate natural transitions between dynamic layers. Innovative modeling of real-life vibrato performances lets users weave authentic vibrato into their performances in real time. And a comprehensive collection of 20 articulations – from staccato and tremolo to sul pont and harmonics – allows users to create even the most nuanced, true-to-life performances.
      STRADIVARI VIOLIN includes two versions of the instrument. A multi-mic version allows users to dial in the perfect acoustic space by mixing close, mid, and far positions of the 32 microphones employed to sample the Vesuvius violin. An included second version of the instrument offers a stereo-only mix that is lighter on a user’s CPU and RAM, enabling a speedier workflow and extra focus for composing.
      Native Instruments has also released a behind-the-scenes documentary, showing how Stradivari’s ‘Vesuvius’ violin was recorded in Cremona, the same Italian town where it was built in 1727.

      This newly recorded expansion of the acclaimed Hollywood Orchestra will boast over 230 Gigabytes of pristine new recordings and powerful new features sound engineered by Shawn Murphy (2019 GRAMMY winner "Best Engineered Album, Classical", ACADEMY AWARD, C.A.S. (Cinema Audio Society), BAFTA, and EMMY award-winning sound engineer). Producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix have also reworked the original content of Hollywood Orchestra (which is required along with the expansion) so the whole collection has a cohesive sound and an easier workflow. Along with Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition EastWest will release its companion product Hollywood Orchestrator, which will assist in creating award-winning compositions within seconds, and much more!

       
      “Hollywood Orchestra is extremely popular with over a half a million users”, said producer Doug Rogers; “Since the release of Hollywood Orchestra, which was created over a 5 year period, we have received a wish list from users and feel we have included most of these requests, and many of our own, in the Opus Edition. The Orchestrator uses multi-samples (not loops) to automate compositions, saving the composer a lot of time, it’s very exciting!”
       
      There will be an upgrade path for existing users of Hollywood Orchestra. The Opus Edition and Orchestrator will be included in EastWest’s multiple award-winning subscription service ComposerCloud, and both will be available for purchase.
      EastWest will release more details, news and exclusive sneak peaks over the coming months on their social media channels, so be sure to follow on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.

      There is more to a great plug-in than the sound quality it imparts on your tracks. Workflow and user-friendliness are arguably equally important. To that end, we are proud to finally announce the completely overhauled Preset Collection, already available in the most recent update of all native Softube plug-ins.
      Use category icons to sort by instrument, or browse pro-user collections. Take a smoother stroll through your options with list view. Resize the presets window to your preference, or simply stay in the plug-in window, using the pull-down menu or the click-through arrows. It's slicker, quicker, and sicker than ever before.
