Strezov Sampling Cornucopia Strings v1.4 KONTAKT | 6.4 Gb
Cornucopia is the “horn of plenty” (from Latin – cornu copiae) - a symbol of abundance and nourishment. We recorded and sampled a 20-piece string ensemble (6-5-4-3-2) which consists of the best string players in Bulgaria - all the leading players in our Sofia Session Orchestra. Our intention was to create a sample library that has articulations each composer needs in his/her daily work.
One thing that makes Cornucopia stand out to other string libraries is the 'slavonic' sound – that special Eastern European orchestra 'vibe'. The sound of the library is warm and intimate, yet majestic and big – and this makes “Cornucopia: Strings” the perfect starting tool for young composers, as well as a powerful weapon in the arsenal of professional composer. The strings were recorded in an actual real seating position (violins to the left, celli and basses to the right) in Druzhba hall – the same hall where “Storm Choir” was recorded. The subtle natural ambience of the space brought the samples to life without compromising the tonal clarity. We used 3 mic positions (close, decca, outrigger) to allow users full control of the spatial balance, all of them are available for mixing right in the interface.
What's new in v1.4:
- new legato script that was given to us by David Healey from Total Composure. This should fix some of the CPU issues that MAC users were having.
- Auto RR option (borrowing "neighbour" samples) that you can use to avoid the 'machine-gun' effect now can be used in chords.
- enhanced "Tighten" and "Shorten" buttons - now those can be adjusted to your preference
