    Virtuoso Series Pro/Ruby demo.

    I thought I would quickly try out the new Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Pro (formerly Ruby) strings on the main theme of my current project (Which is live instruments on the finished recording).

    To my ears, the new KH strings are especially rich, with a complex timbre that adds tons of depth.

    This uses the full string combo patch only.

    I varied the use of the "human" attack control, and I gradually brought in the non-vibrato sustains towards the end.

    Dynamics are just a bit of cc7.

    The reverb is a small touch of KHhall.aiff impulse.

    Also used are oboe, trombone, and flute solos from Emerald.

    Do you know if there are portamento instruments in there? Or gliss?

    Well done by the way!

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    There are up and down slides but I didn't happen to make use of them here.

    How much is the Virtuoso series Pro? And what's included? I find the new website a bit confusing...

    Does that include Emerald and the solo strings too?

    Thanks!

    Nice snippt Mr. Von....as always.

    The first release of the Virtuoso Series Pro Concert Strings will start tomorrow, or early Tuesday for EXS24. Kontakt 2.2 SOON to follow. We're meeting about the final pricing early Monday morning. The Concert Strings alone are 20 GB, which is the total size of Emerald. And once again, those of you who already own Emerald (no matter where you purchased it) are entitled to discount rates...we're working on that! )

    Geronimo: There will be, in the future, an option to pick up the full blown total Virtuoso Series Pro package which will include Emerald (if one does not already have Emerald). However, that is still a ways away in development.

    So watch at www.kirkhunterstudios.com tomorrow (5/7/07) about the pricing, etc.

    Thanks glad you liked it! This has suddenly become a huge theme and variations for orchestra which I will sequence and post when I get the chance. I got a flurry of inspiration last night and started sketching rapidly... It gets into some pretty wild contrapuntal brass fanfares towards the middle.

    Well, looking at the site the lite versions seem to offer best value. Although if they are only missing mute and FX sounds can that really explain the vast difference in the size of the libraries? (Actually I prefer libs with a modest footprint). The other question of course is once they are all available will the concert, studio and solo strings be packaged together? (for a deal)
