    Ruby Grand Strings Free Download

    This is the first release candidate for the larger set of Ruby's "Grand Violins". Rather than showing the "full strings" patch which has so many crossfading sections on top of each other, we've decided to put up the Grand Violins with a limited range so you can hear all the features INCLUDING the keyswitching. Many improvements have already been made based on your constructive response. This download is only in Kontakt 2.2, but will soon be available in EXS.
    You can read more information at http://www.kirkhunterstudios.com/khs...s_str_demo.php

    I appologize that it is taking so long, but I want to be very selective.

    Best Regards,
    Kirk

    Wow!! Thanks so much for the dl. To be honest, I've never tried any of your samples before, but I've always heard how great they are. I'm a late bloomer when it comes to string samples. Just getting the bug and considering bank loans........ I'm really looking forward to trying these today and adding Ruby to my collection. Thanks again, Kirk.

    Hi K. H.,

    Tried the download. I have a very powerful computer, but found that the samples cut off suddenly after 2 seconds.

    Tried everything to adjust it. Also...alot of weird sounds when lifting fingers from keys.

    As it says very clearly on the information page, "Please note: Your demo version does not contain all of these features, but has the same over all sound. Additionally, the sustained samples will only last for 2.25 seconds, and then cut off." Also, in the "troubleshooting" table, you can find fixes for the weirdness. You can find that at http://www.kirkhunterstudios.com/khs...mo.php#trouble

    Kirk. I do not own your products but if this demo patch is any indication, I will be ordering Ruby when it is released. Even though I had the same troubles as some others with the weird release sound, these strings sound gorgeous. I'm very impressed.

    For those of you who dowload the huge K2.2 demo, and it sounds weird, just roll your pitch wheel up and down a few times while the instrument is selected. We're working on that. (Btw, there will be smaller K2 patches as well.)

    EXS24 demo is now up.

    Don't forget that the samples cut off after about 2 seconds.. I couldn't just GIVE it all away!

    Thanks Kirk,

    this is a marvelous view on what expects us with your librarie. Very well!

    I like your humanized programming! The future, that you have simulated the tuning from players by hearing to the others...., it is sooooo cool!

    Very best regards

    Sounds really very good! Will there be a cross/upgrade option from Emerald, please?

    The choice of format may not be easy for diehard exs24 lovers (like myself), because I assume the KP2 version will offer better out-of-the box controllability, right? Would you consider offering a dual-format package?

    Thanks!

    Other than some of the vibrato crossfades, the EXS version will play every bit as well as the Kontakt version. It's just that the Kontakt version will have a bit more flexiblity.

    Upgrade paths are already in place, so Emerald owners don't have to worry. Information about that will be forthcoming, but can already be found to some degree at http://www.kirkhunterstudios.com/khso_ruby.php
