    Oboes Module Now Available From Westgate Studios

    As part of our all-new Modular Series, Westgate Studios is proud to announce the release of The Oboes Module.
    This library for Gigastudio 3.1 and Kontakt 2.1 features 24 bit samples recorded by Grammy award-winning engineer Tim Kimsey.
    On the DVD you will find a comprehensive set of patches for Solo Oboe, Solo English Horn and Oboe Section.
    If you are looking to breath new life and stunning realism into your music, then this is the library for you.

    The most important feature of this library is the Legato playing style. These patches contain not only expressive long notes, but also true legato interval samples that were recorded as the musicians played every note up and down from 1 half-step all the way up to a full octave. And the good news is that you don’t have to load any special tools to control them because the Legato effect is powered by Gigastudio’s imidi rules and Kontakt’s scripting engine.
    But it doesn’t end there. Within this same instrument you can vary the Attack Strength of each note, control the use of Release Samples, and play Same-Note Legato Repetitions in any rhythm or tempo.
    With any other library you’d find your midi channels and tracks quickly filling up, but our focus was to pack as many features into each instrument while still keeping them easy to use.
    Each of the oboe patches also allows you complete Tone Control within the instrument. If you prefer a “darker” sound, simply adjust control change 4 until you like what you hear.
    Along with these highlights you’ll also find everything you’ve come to expect from today’s modern woodwind libraries:
    Staccato and Marcato articulations, Trills, Octave Runs and changing dynamics such as Crescendos, Diminuendos, and Fortepiano. We’ve gone the extra step to make this a complete solution by including eerie Multiphonic Effect samples as well.

    Whether you are a power user or a hobbyist, the feature list and price of this module are enough to make any serious musician want to add these exquisite sounding instruments to their arsenal.
    We have only scratched the surface here. For a complete feature list and audio demos, head over to Westgate Studios.

    With an MSRP of only $100 (US), the Oboes Module is available on DVD for either Gigastudio 3.1 or Kontakt 2.1.
    The samples included are 24bit\44.1k\stereo recordings of Solo Oboe, Solo English Horn and Oboe Section.
    This library is Available Now at Westgate Studios.

    Additional News:

    We have completed recording all of the material for our upcoming "Flutes Module" and are now in the editing and programming phase.
    You can keep up with the progress at Westgate Studios.

    As always, let us know what you'd like to see in future libraries.

    Lovely demos, any ETA on the development of the other instruments?

    Thanks.

    The Flutes Module should be done in the next couple of months. The Clarinets will follow thereafter. Because of the large amount of content, and editing to be done for the programming features, we will likely finish up with the woodwinds by the end of the year. After that we will move on to brass.

    End of the year for the currently announced winds or for also the empty 2 TBA slots?

    Yes, that's the announced woodwinds.

    We're open to suggestions for the remaining slots (which of course can grow). We'd eventually like to cover Saxophones, Recorders or other Ethnic winds.

    Just to make sure I have this clear, the modular series oboes for $100 gives you solo oboes, solo english horn, and oboe section, where the $70 download is only solo oboe, correct? If so, is there any plan on offering the entire library for download?

    Also, is this $100 the standard price, or a special introductory price?

    Thanks in advance for your reply! Demos sound GREAT, and seems like a nice cost effective alternative to VSL french oboe.

    Your pricing info is correct.
    Originally we were going to offer the entire library as a download, but it just got to be too big and slow for downloading. By offering just the Oboe for download it allows those that only need Oboe to get it right away. The DVD edition does contain some new samples for the Oboe as well as all new instruments such as the English Horn and Oboe Section.
    We plan on following this same method with our upcoming libraries. You will be able to purchase a download of the prime instrument from the module and then later upgrade to the DVD version if you wish. That way you don't have to wait until the entire DVD is completed to start using the instrument. That's especially important if you don't need the other instruments.

    Yes, $100 is the price for the Oboes DVD and will most likely not go up. This is not a standard Module price, however. That will always be reflective of the number of instruments and size of the library.

    I think orchestral saxes would be a good idea. They are in short supply.

    A vote for Ethnic Winds...
