    Lightbulb Check out Audio Impressions’ Realtime Instruments

    Audio Impressions’ Realtime Instruments: I have been looking into this and I am impressed. Go here and watch the whole movie:
    http://www.audioimpressions.com/
    Real time articulation changes, distributed processing, real humanizing, divisi sizes do not change just because you play different numbers of multiple notes, realistic glide, variable room size (multiple variable mikes), a massive number of instruments available, delivered on hard drives, 3rd party library integration and more. These guys are really going for the orchestral realism holy grail. Even with the funky video sound, it sounded very good. I would like to hear some demos when available.
    Gary Garritan has commented on this product in his NAMM report. It may be a bit pricey depending on the depth of your implementation. The website video may be the most recent demo they have at this time.

    It certainly has some good ideas and features implemented. Truth be known I was interested in this until I found out about the system requirements.

    In excess of 5 top of the line dedicated computers are required to use the majority of the orchestra. If you just want strings, you need at least 2 dedicated machines, possibly 3.

    The sound on the video isn't good enough to make a sound judgement really, it could still go either way in that regard in my opinion.

    From what I've heard there's still no real sounding scripted legato either.

    Still, we shall see in time...

    ...video is too old and sonic quality is not good. Waiting for a demo justifing
    pricing and amount of harware-software.

    This library has sure got me curious. I really like the thought process behind it and, IMHO, it sounds really nice. It also seems really playable. However, how can you get all of the strings recorded with all of their articullations and velocities in an under 5 gigabyte footprint? Sounds too good to be true. And if you can do it, why do you need so many computers to toss around 5 gigs of data?

    VSL makes some outstanding software instruments. Their solo strings take 82 gigabytes of disk space. They have sampled the daylights out of the solo strings and it shows, both sonically and file size wise. How do you get this type of great sound without going for the "brute force/huge filesize approach?

    Next look at all of the instruments that this library will have including stuff like guitars, drums, world stuff, big band stuff. 600 sampled instruments in all! What an ambitious project! Hope it's all that and a bag of chips!

    Now I just need to find the 20-30k and keep it secret from the wife!

    2 cents...

    They have to stop relying on these low quality videos for promotion.
    DEMOS please!!!!
    It's two full years now and all the buzz is based on two super low bandwidth crappy video sound. And it seems those that played it in person at namm are far from glowing about it.

    Waiting for high quality demos.
