I am indeed very pleased to tell you that SIPS (at long last) is up on Theo's site and available for download. I thought this announcement deserved a new thread, but, for some continuity I'm sort of repeating my 2nd last post on the old thread.
The scripts have a lot of presets done by Theo, Andrew, and Martin and for every preset there is a short mp3 demo. Theo and Andrew also did a few orchestrations that Theo has also put up. So go and check these out.
I've had a lot of help from some very talented guys and I know from their feedback that you're very likely to find this tool quite useful. Just to sort of whet your appetite a little, here is a recent quote from Martin:
"I didn't expect the level of realism and expression that this would
bring to my sampled instruments. The Dan Dean Brass that I've been
working with is a great library, but an older one without all the
features of newer offerings like Vienna and so on. These scripts are
literally breathing new life into the samples, and I can get them to
sound more expressive than I ever could before.
We already knew the potential of the legato script, but now I'm just
as impressed with the SVS. In fact, I think I even like using your
script better than the real vibrato instruments that are included
with the library. With the real vibrato recording, you are stuck with
a nice, but static, vibrato that you can't modulate over time. With
the script, you can use controllers to change the parameters and this
can make the music sound more "lifelike". And maybe someone with
better ears than I have can hear the difference between the script
and real vibrato, but I personally can't, at least not on the little
snippet that I worked on today. So I guess this means it's at least
very close to the real thing.
Again, I want to thank and congratulate you on the work you've done.
Not only on the scripts, but also on the docs which are really clear
and easy to understand. Particularly your guidelines on starting up
with programming the scripts (as well as Theo and Andrew's advice
sections) have really helped me quickly create some presets that I'm
Well, that about says it all. If you want it, get it here: http://www.theokrueger.com/kontakt2.htm
Happy Easter everyone.
