Re: Double Bass

No Contrabass? You only mentioned Kontakt-based instruments... :shock: :( I also note th...

Re: Samplemodeling secret plans unveiled !

We're coming into the Christmas period soon. Hopefully Santa Claus has some nice things along with the helper elves and of course the reindeers ;)

Re: Double Bass

They're a new line of products from ROLI. There is also a Seaboard block, which is a 2-octave (24-key) Seaboard that can be attached to another Seaboard block to extend it to cover 4 octaves. Likewise with the Lightpad block...you simply connect them together and this extends the playing surface. I ...

Re: Double Bass

Not sure, but I am aware of the ROLI blocks and how the NOISE app has SM sounds. I am pretty sure this is what has thrown off the contrabass. Hopefully the delay isn't that long, I am hoping it will be released in time for Christmas, I am waiting for it. It is really the last instrument I need to st...

Re: Double Bass

I was asking the exact same thing nearly 2 weeks ago. That topic has had absolutely no replies. I think the ROLI Blocks thing has delayed it, look at the ROLI soundsets, they have SM instruments (flute, sax, viola and cello) I think. Not sure what else. I will go out on a limb and say that this has ...

Contrabass?

:mrgreen: We're still waiting for the last piece of the solo strings. Hopefully it will come this year. I thought it was funny how the Viola came out November 2015, the Cello came out June 2016, and the Violin in December 2016. When June/July came and went I thought...hmmm, what's happening? Maybe i...

Re: Samplemodeling secret plans unveiled !

Hopefully it'll be released as per the timeframe of the other 3 strings...if I remember correctly there was about 6 or 7 months between each release. Viola in late 2015, Cello in mid 2016 and Violin in late 2016...I'm thinking Double Bass in mid 2017...hope I'm right ;)

Re: String Sections

Hello! The demos for the violin, viola and cello are absolutely mind blowing! Now, that they are all out, has anyone used multiple instances of each to create sections; like eight violins, six violas and four celli? Do they work well like that? Thanx! When they release the contrabass, then we will ...

Re: Double bass

Michael, that sounds like a great idea. Of course, the best way would be to wait for the release of the instrument. There are several "instruments" in each of the solo strings, so picking one that sounds better for low-pitch shifting. One could even try the violin, and shift the formants down below ...

Re: Double bass

Hopefully some time this year we will see the contrabass added to the collection of solo strings. I'm toying with the idea of doing pitch-shifting to approximate the sound, of course it's no substitute but it helps to get a feel for what the quartet would sound like in a realistic context. The last ...
