Orchestral Tools Orchestral Strings Run v2.2 KONTAKT
We are very happy to release OSR 2 today. We needed some “extra” time for additional recording-sessions with the orchestra to bring some of our visions into OSR 2. The update will not include additional basic-runs, because OSR has a huge amount of pre-recorded runs.
We decided to come up with some improvements for more flexibility and some new artics. Weve recorded fast legato-performances for our new playable runs patches for violins+violas and celli+basses. We divided the musicians into two groups of players. A multiscript will make natural tuning- and timing-discrepancies possible. But youve control over all of these things.
The industry´s first RUNS BUILDER for Violins and Cellos+Basses.(Create your individual runs out of thousands of tempo-synced runs-fragments!)
RUNS TRANSITION PATCH (playable smeared runs!) based on legato-transitions and repetitions for Violins+Violas
Hundreds of pre-recorded, tempo-synced runs
Tempo-synced looped ostinatos
Short-Trills Patch (sfz Trills and measured tempo-synced Trills (HS/WS))
Big soundig basic articulations (sustain-patches, staccatos with repetitions)
More than 50 professional musicians were involved
OSR Tempo-Script (synchronize OSR to your host-tempo)
33,4 GB of samples (compressed: 19,7 GB)
24Bit/ 48KHz Patches
16Bit/ 48KHz Eco-Patches
New since OSR 2:
RUNS BUILDER 2.0: Special scales like whole tone, octatonic and chromatic scales are now possible! And every slot has its own tempo-mode slider, a fine-adjustments-slider and the possibility to make triplets out of 16th based figures.
New playable runs patches: complete new recorded samples and two divided groups of musicians per patch will make natural tuning and TIMING discrepancies possible for never reached realism. This patch is available for Violins+Violas and Celli+Basses. These patches has now longer end-notes then our Runs Transitions Patch 1 (which is based on real legato sampled staccatos.
Measured Short Tremolos: As an addition to our short trills patch, we´ve recorded tempo-synced measured short tremolos (doubles and triples) everything sampled with repetitions! This patch is also available for Celli+Basses.
Marcatos for Violins+Violas and Celli+Basses
New sustain-patches with more velocity layers and xfade scripts
– FIXED: Stucking notes on polyphonic-intensed TimeMachine Pro instruments like the “Measured Short Tremolos” patch in Kontakt (Player) 5.02+.Patches with a higher polyphonic usage are switched back to TimeMachine 2.
RUNS TRANSITIONS PATCH 2
legato-scripting improved for a better playability.
Now it is much easier to “break” a legato-line. You?ve to play overlapping notes to hear connected notes (legato). There is no more time-tolerance, the border between legato and non-legato is much clearer now.
– New velocity function for the Accents-Instrument. You can choose between CC1 volume-control or velocity-control for accents with a treshold-switch. If you enter “90” e.g. the accents will be played, when you play a higher velocity than 90. With this feature you can add an accent to single notes of a run (e.g. the first or the last note).
– some minor bugs are fixed now.
