For the Symphonic String Collection! Find it at: http://www.sonicimplants.com/Strings/demos.asp
And it does sound sweeeeet! And check this out boys and girls: there is a sample .gig file too!! Holy crap! Gotta go and try it out! Later!
I\'m working on a cue right now that sounding pretty sweet with Kirk Hunter violins ( reduced mids and boosted at 10k and above ). But, it doesn\'t sound like that! The violins sound pretty great in the demo. Ofcourse you can\'t tell much about playability, but everything sounds really nice. The violas seem to have a vibrato that I am not crazy about, or is that high cellos? Seems promising.
actually its full dynamic range control in SI not vibrato control. More like GOS. Itr fades between piano,MP,MF,and forte. With a more natural dynamic (volume) range
VotA is vibrato control with velocity switching....unless you do some reprogramming like me [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] yah yah. ART files will be shared at somepoint when I make sure they are \"right\"
Anyhow, these are really two different things. Still SI strings can be programmed to respond exactly like VotA. ITs a simple edit.....well if the samples are normalized...if not its a little more difficult...but can still be done.
Also these are \"legato\" samples, not the expressive ones it seems. I\'m anxious to hear those now. Definitely could be a great string library, IMO so far from what I hear.
Curious about the short bows now.
I\'m not sure I like all the bow movement in the forte samples. Still its how it was naturally played....so who am I to complain [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

\"VotA is vibrato control with velocity switching....unless you do some reprogramming like me yah yah. ART files will be shared at somepoint when I make sure they are \"right\".\"
With my 76 key controller, it cuts off the bottom three key switches. I would like to move them, but it may screw up NFs wordbuilder. When I have time I will have to check out your art files I have, but alas I prepare for E3, which eats my time now. Maybe when I get back you will have your VOTA art files available. And what is the deal with you and short bows?? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
And BTW, I now \"officially\" proclaim that foreverafter the Sonic Implants Symphonic String Collection library shall be officially referred to as SISS, or even SISSC if you insist. I have spoken and counted to three: so it is written, so shall it be. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
This library is going to be amazing! I would strongly suggest that everyone download the demo gig on the SI site. The spacialness of the samples (especially the bass) is phenominal. You all know what a big believer I am in release triggers and this one takes full advatage of them. Release triggers on strings are an absolute must IMO. This library is going to rock!!

I did like the Basses quite a bit, although something sounds a bit odd about it (maybe it\'s that viola).
It\'s kinda funny that this library should come out at a time when I am getting ready to purchase GOS. It\'s definately put a question in my mind as to which one is better (I know it\'s really a subjective thing).
I guess the user feedback will be the judge!
Should make for some interesting discussions in the upcoming months!
\"Of course you can\'t tell much about playability, but everything sounds really nice.\"
The demo Gig file is very revealing. I only played with it for a short time, but the way the vibrato is done in VOTA would be THE way to do string vibrato: controlled by mod wheel. I think some of the parts are MOD controlled but I think they were for swells. Gotta look at it again...
