  2. 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.

  10. LONDON, UK: Spitfire Audio is proud to announce availability of ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS — seeing the sound-specialising British music technology company readily reuniting with BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds to closely collaborate on its latest fully NKS (NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD®) supporting plug-in instrument for Native Instruments’ industry-standard KONTAKT PLAYER sample playback engine as an instantly playable, easy-to-use versatile, multidimensional tool that bends space and time through an intricate network of polyrhythmic piano performances, presented in a bespoke interface made up of eight multi-layered piano and synthesiser matrixes offering unique sonic experiences and detailed customisation options to create awe-inspiring patterns and atmospheric clouds of harmonic refractions that swell and die away, offering a spectrum of emotion — as of March 19... With a lengthening line of bestselling sample-based virtual instrument library namesakes, including 2015’s ÓLAFUR ARNALDS EVOLUTIONS — embracing unique string quartet textures and long evolving phrases; 2016’s intimate-sounding ÓLAFUR ARNALDS COMPOSER TOOLKIT — recorded on a characterful ‘felted’ grand piano; and 2018’s ÓLAFUR ARNALDS CHAMBER EVOLUTIONS — introducing the BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer and producer’s signature ‘Waves’ strings samples that evolve beneath the player’s fingers, ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS stands out as Spitfire Audio’s fourth such collaboration, this time bringing about a brand-new, multidimensional instrument, based on Ólafur Arnalds’ acclaimed software: sophisticated MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Instrument) algorithms programmed to trigger patterns of notes on two identical self-playing pianos. Put it this way: when acute nerve damage suffered following a car accident left him unable to play with his left hand, rather than giving up Ólafur Arnalds was musically motivated to develop intelligent custom software that could trigger self-playing, semi-generative ‘ghost’ pianos, and after spending two years experimenting with programmer Halldór Eldjárn to painstakingly perfect this technology, he incorporated it into his live show — playing an electronic keyboard on stage while his two identical pianos accompanied him to create a cascade of complementary notes and patterns, with each performance unique to each audience. As such, those Stratus pianos also played an integral part in the sound world of his acclaimed 2018 record, re:member. Remember, too, that Spitfire Audio ultimately used this model to create the highly-intuitive and interactive tool that became ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS, suitably enhanced with unique features, while recording full performances to capture the profoundly emotional, organic nature of the pianos themselves — instantly adding echoes of movement to anything played, pushing players to explore new possibilities. Collectively captivated by this fantastic fusion of organic, emotive physicality and electronic innovation ingenuity, Spitfire Audio spent several weeks at Ólafur Arnalds’ awe-inspiring studio space in Reykjavik, Iceland capturing his unique-sounding Yamaha DU1E3 felt-dampened pianos in their natural habitat. However, rather than simply sampling single notes, the visiting sound-specialising British music technology company made full recordings of multitudes of polyrhythmic patterns and textures performed by both pianos, triggered simultaneously by algorithms, and carefully curated in close collaboration with Ólafur Arnalds himself. Having opted to close record them using vintage Neumann KM 83 and Coles microphones, plus pristine Millenia preamps, Spitfire Audio’s carefully captured results retained the beautiful resonances, and full dynamic and tonal range of Ólafur Arnalds’ distinctive-sounding pianos, brought to life by trailblazing technology. Watch Ólafur Arnalds himself reveal the story behind ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS here: The resulting ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS methodology makes it easy to create nuanced piano-based music from the most simplistic of arrangements. As such, simply holding down a note or chord can result in getting gloriously lost in inspiring unique clouds of harmonic refractions and rhythmic performances as they swell, evolve, and die away — and all at anyone’s fingertips. For those trying to create whatever musical mood they might have in mind, it offers a whole spectrum of emotion, derived from user input — from intimate loops, swells, and textures to intricate rhythms falling like rain, and dreamy, expansive soundscapes. So how, exactly, does ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS do what it is that it does so well? Well, simply speaking, it works by taking a single note and repeating it according to a curated rhythm, splitting the rhythm between the two self-playing pianos while at the same time relocating the note up or down the octave based on a curated level of randomness that chooses whether or not the octave should jump. Watch Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Paul Thomson’s ‘traditional’ walkthrough of ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS here: Whereas Spitfire Audio’s acclaimed Evo Grid technology — implemented so successfully in so many of its sample-based virtual instruments libraries — is triggered by note range, ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS introduces a bespoke interface featuring eight 8x8 instrument matrixes complete with up to five Z-Axis layers — namely, 01A MATRIX - RHYTHMIC WAVES (tempo-synced rhythms with a gradual attack/swell); 01B MATRIX - RHYTHMIC ATTACKS (tempo-synced rhythms with a strong attack); 02 MATRIX - LOOPED RHYTHMS (tempo-synced loops); 03 MATRIX - SWARMS (non tempo-synced swarm-like textures); 04 SYNTH MATRIX - LOOPED RHYTHMS; 05 SYNTH MATRIX - SWARMS; 06 SYNTH MATRIX - LOOPED RHYTHMS: SHORTS 1; and 07 SYNTH MATRIX - LOOPED RHYTHMS: SHORTS 2. Although all are specially curated by Ólafur Arnalds himself, the user controls how these combinations of harmonic elements develop — both by what they play, and with extensive built-in customisation options, as well as a comprehensive range of effects, including CONV. (convolution) REVERB, DELAY, FILTER, and TAPE SAT. (saturation). The first four (piano-based) matrixes capture the stunning organic sounds of Ólafur Arnalds’ pianos, panned across the stereo field — Stratus Piano - Centre, Stratus Piano - Left, and Stratus Piano - Right — to give a true representation of the pianos in their space, seamlessly blended into one, while the other four (synthesiser-based) matrixes employ the same technology to create similar patterns, with stunning tempo-locked rhythmic loops made using Olafur Arnalds’ classic Korg PS-3100 — a monstrous 48-note polyphonic, patchable analogue rarity — and dreamy swarm-like textures from his beloved Juno-60 programmable analogue polysynth. The Randomise bar features experimental controls to further randomise ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS’ behaviour, taking advantage of the library’s generative nature. Watch Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Christian Henson’s composing with ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS video here: For more in-depth information, including some superb-sounding audio demos by Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Christian Henson and others, please visit the dedicated ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS webpage here: https://www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/olafur-arnalds-stratus/ Needless to say, Spitfire Audio being Spitfire Audio, that’s not all. Augmenting that bespoke Stratus user interface — designed for the selection and playback of samples on a per-voice basis — is the sound-specialising British music technology company’s tried and tested Mercury marvel, another ingenious interface including a range of organic sounds and specially curated warped sounds (WARPS). With that in mind, all controls therein are assignable to external control surfaces, so users can quickly make Spitfire Audio’s already created sounds their own. Lose track of time while watching Spitfire Audio’s awe-inspiring trailer video for ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS sympathetically scored by ‘composer-in-residence’ Homay Schmitz here: On the face of it, then, ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS’ versatility lends itself to solo compositions, as well as adding texture and unpredictable elements to orchestral libraries, and complementing the libraries in Spitfire Audio’s acclaimed ÓLAFUR ARNALDS... series. All are a must-have for musicians and composers looking to create beautiful, progressive, hybrid ensemble music influenced by the Scandi Noir movement. Making room on a hard drive for ÓLAFUR ARNALDS STRATUS is like rooming at Ólafur Arnalds’ awe-inspiring studio space and invading the keen experimenter and innovator’s headspace — albeit without travelling to Reykjavik, inspirational in itself as it undoubtedly is!

  11. February 20, 2020 - IK Multimedia announces the immediate availability of T-RackS Sunset Sound Studio Reverb, the newest effect plug-in within their industry-standard T-RackS® 5 mixing and mastering software line. It brings the unique acoustic ambience and other iconic audio characteristics of Los Angeles' legendary Sunset Sound recording facility to musicians everywhere, and is suitable for use both as an individual plug-in and inside T-RackS 5. Using a combination of IK's unique Volumetric Response Modeling (VRM™) technology and advanced physical modelling to recreate Sunset Sound's custom consoles, T-RackS Sunset Sound Studio Reverb offers a powerful sonic experience that lets users add a distinct sound from many hit songs recorded at Sunset Sound to their tracks as if they were at the studio themselves. IK worked in collaboration with current studio owner Paul Camarata, multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/engineer Ross Hogarth (Van Halen, Doobie Brothers) and many of Sunset Sound's engineers to give recording engineers unprecedented access to the ambient sound and vibe of the studios in this landmark facility, where a who's who of music has recorded for 60 years, including the Doors, the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and countless others. Decades of session sheets were studied at the studio to recreate specific mic positions and placement used on countless hits, with a high level of collaboration between IK and the studio to achieve accuracy and realism when emulating these distinct sounds in software. Iconic consoles and deep authenticity This new plug-in carefully captures each space, recorded using Sunset Sound's high-end mic collection, to deliver not just the acoustics but also the unique vibe of the space. IK recreated them using its unique Volumetric Response Modeling (VRM™), an advanced hybrid convolution technique, to deliver the highest-quality reverb effects possible and ensure the results of T-RackS's processing were virtually indistinguishable from recordings made in the real rooms. IK also used its award-winning physical modelling techniques to recreate each studio's vintage customized consoles (an API-based Sunset Sound custom, a Class-A-Discrete Neve® 8880 and an API/DeMedio® Sunset Sound Custom), preamplifier and signal path, to add the perfect harmonic elements and sonic signature. All together, this results in a faithful studio quality reverb that adds a very special warmth and tone while also offering the same signature ambient sound as the timeless records that were recorded at the studio for decades by top artists and bands. All of this is complemented by an array of flexible control options for further tone shaping. Studio owner Paul Camarata notes, "For 60 years, the sound of our studios has been heard on hit records around the world.
