    Cool Miroslav Vitous String Ensembles

    I found a mp3 demo at Japanese distributor. Thought I'd share with you guys.

    I wish they put more moving melodies and lines, short bows and etc...

    This is Bill Brown, and he did a very cool demo, to my ears.

    Yeah, the Bill Brown demo (also on the BigFishAudio site) is really atmospheric and sounds fantastic. But it doesn't give us a lot to listen to for the sake of comparing to the string libraries that are already out there. On the other hand, it gives us a piece that's very slow and legato-y, which is the playing style that usually exposes the flaws in most string libraries because they do better when there's a lot of movement going on. I'm tempted, but I'm holding off till I hear more demos. $999 is pretty steep for a string library when I already have such great products like VSL, LASS, & Symphobia in my arsenal...

    Bill himself told me that it is terrific for pads and such. For this amount of $$$, I simply cannot afford to entertain buying this- especially when I have a shiny Kurzweil PC3 in my sights to buy down the road.

    I love the High register Violins here...sounds very very good with lots of air around them.

    I have a question regarding the player\sampler thingy they come with:
    Are the actual audio files available, or inside some locked container?
    Becouse in the eventuality that i would get this...i would probably wish to do some custom programming, and most preferably in Kontakt.

    Could someone please shed some light on the editability and what level of custom programming its possible to do with the supplied "Engine"?

    Fanx.

    If it's the "Best Service Sample Player", then that would be based on the YellowTools Independence engine. I'm sure the content would be locked in Independence so no export/import with Kontakt. Independence itself hs some programmability, but I've never used it and I'm guessing the market is small compared to the Kontakts and EXSes of the world, so who knows how stable it is and what it can do in terms of advanced features like Kontakt scripting, etc... Probably need the "full version" of Independence for full programming features. More info here, which were linked from the MVSE info page:

    I have Independence Pro.
    The libraries are locked into YT format file.
    The sampler has a mapping page and if you click on a mapped area the wave appears in another window. You can alter the mappings and have access to vol, pan, pitch, loop points, etc but there are no waves in the folders.

    You can probably get the manual from YT.

    No second violins??? The demos sound great - but a proper string orchestra consists of V I, V II, Viola, Cello and Bass. I suppose one could use the chamber 14 violins but I doubt those would balance against the 24. Am I missing something? :-)

    Hi,
    Sure, the audio files are (have to be) encrypted. You can do a lot of editing in ENGINE, similar to Independence Pro (except mapping and performance page)
    You can download ENGINE (it is not protected) to check it out with your own samples (yes, you can import up to 24 wav or aif files), or download Free TITAN where you have some free synth instruments included.

    More editing is possible in the full version of Independence Pro. Have a look at www.try-sound.com to check out a full working Independence Pro online .
    You can download an ENGINE manual PDF as well as the "additional info" PDF including Miroslav´s update plan here:
    http://www.bestservice.de/sort1.asp/.../en#More+infos
    Btw. the Miroslav Library will be available at Try-Sound in a few days
