    NEW! KH CONCERT STRINGS IN KONTAKT FORMAT!! $399 Intro

    KH CONCERT STRINGS IN KONTAKT FORMAT - $399 INTRO UNTIL JAN 23
    We're excited to announce that the 100GB+ Kirk Hunter Concert Strings Library in Kontakt format are shipping just after NAMM for an intro price of $399 that ends midnight January 23 EST (the day NAMM ends). No group buy needed at this price.

    http://www.kirkhunter.com/libraries/strings.shtml

    OVERVIEW
    The Kontakt version was programmed by Ashley Witt. For those who don't know Ashley, he programmed the Miroslav Vitous library for the E4, Disk 6 of Advanced Orchestra for the E4, has worked with Andy Brick, Danny Elfman, David Newman, Media Ventures and others in Los Angeles for both programming and electronic orchestration. He composed a score for a documentary that was nominated for an Academy Award. Ashley is one of those rare folks who also plays the majority of orchestral instruments. And last but not least, Ashley helped beta test the award winning Vienna Symphonic Library.

    With these qualifications, Kirk gave Ashley a free hand to create what Ashley felt would be THE Concert Strings library in Kontakt. What Ashley has done with the Concert Strings in Kontakt is truly over the top.

    As with the GS version, there are Close, Far and Distant, Muted and Open, plus a bonus set of solo strings for violin, viola, cello and bass. Let's look at the Far Mic'ed Violins as our model.

    You get:

    24 Violins Heavy Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    24 Violins Light Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    24 Violins No Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    24 Violins Short Notes
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    24 Violins Sustained Combinations and FX
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    1st Violins Heavy Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    1st Violins Light Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    1st Violins No Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    1st Violins Short Notes

    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    1st Violins Sustained Combinations and FX
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    2nd Violins Heavy Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    2nd Violins Light Vibrato
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    2nd Violins No Vibrato

    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    2nd Violins Short Notes
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    2nd Violins Sustained Combinations and FX
    - Envelope Control (A = cc27, R = cc28)
    - Separate Layers

    In each Envelope Control folder you get an EXTRA 27 programs that enables you to customize each patch by manually controlling the attack and release to your desire from right within the sequencer!

    But that's not all! In the Separate Layers Folder you get 28 individual layer programs that lets you quickly create your own layers. And this pattern repeats for the violas, cellos and basses and Far Mic Mutes!

    No other Kontakt library has this much customizable control for you.

    THE FAR MIC COMBOS FOLDER

    Here you have four folders - All Strings, Keyswitch Modules, Other and Staccato Round Robin with down bow and up bow combinations.

    ALL STRINGS

    Instead of getting just a few All Strings patches, you get a library's worth. There are two basic sizes - 27 Strings (chamber setup as full string orchestra across the keyboard) and 58 (full sections).

    27Strings.nki - 14 individual string orchestra patches where basses through violins are crossfaded to flow into each other. Includes legato, medium and hard attacks, staccato down down, staccato up, pizz and two individual tremolos.

    27Strings.nki w/envelope control - same as above but with the ability to customize attacks and releases using controllers 27 and 28.

    27Strings.nkm - similar to the above but uses four (4) individual Concert String programs (1st Violins, Chamber Violas, Chamber Cellos and Chamber Basses) set to omni to give you one giant string orchestra spanned across the keyboard, or four individual sections that you set up by simply changing the MIDI channel.

    The next three folders are 58Strings.nki, 58Strings.nki w/envelope control, and 58Strings.nkm. The 58 Strings are the full ensemble sections of 24 Violins, 16 Violas, 12 Cellos and 6 Basses.

    KEYSWITCH MODULES
    We call this "Keyswitches on the fly." Inside this big folder are a series of folders starting on C0 (and C5 for the lower instruments) going up "chromatically" to B0 (and B5) that contain individiual folders for 12VCS, 16VAS, 1ST VBS, 24 VNS, 2ndVNS, 6VCS and 8VAS that enable you to create your own keyswitches in under 2 minutes.

    The OTHER Folder contains a complete set of the Keyswitch Modules and three specialized patches created by Ashley.

    STACC ROUND ROBIN DOWN_UP
    For each section, Full Ensemble and Chamber instruments, are down-up staccato "bowings".

    TOTAL CONSISTENCY

    There is simply NO OTHER Strings library available in the Kontakt format that's this size (100GB plus!), with this much control at the introductory price of $399 ($599 starting January 24th). Everything I've just outlined is repeated for Close and DIstant Mic'ed Strings. In all, a whopping 27,000+ patches (80MB on the patches alone!). And of course, Kirk Hunter's Concert Strings are recorded in their seated orchestral position.

    The $399 price for 16 disks is a 33% discount off list good through midnight EST January 23, 2005. Please order at this link:

    Why is it so hard for you to understand that we're short handed and doing what we can? We have a very small crew of folks. Since taking over development of the library, we now have a Giga version of the strings, Kontakt version going to duplication later this week or early next, Kontakt version of the Solo Strings to be released shortly, etc. All this since late July which represents more than 200GB plus of string library programming.

    Pretty amazing.

    It takes time to go through thousands of patches and QC them, and right now, that's the priority. When the Kontakt version goes to duplication, then we'll start working on some new demos, but meanwhile, Kirk is hard at work on the brass which we'll have out in GS format hopefully in February (4 DVD set).
