ProjectSAM releases "Symphobia Colours: Animator" for Kontakt and Kontakt Player
11th December 2013
Building on the Symphobia concept, Symphobia Colours is designed to deliver fresh sounds in smaller packages. Animator, the first library of its kind, marks the launch of this new series.
Laughing clarinets, jazzy staccatos, xylophone winks and trombone slides – Symphobia Colours: Animator is a library dedicated to all things funny. Instantly playable, Animator is an ideal source when scoring cartoons, animated features, light games or sitcoms.
Animator is intended to pay homage to the masters of animation scoring – Scott Bradley and Carl Stalling. Featuring an ensemble that consists of (bass) clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, violin, contrabass, piano, harp and percussion, the library focuses on short, snappy and playable articulations, phrases and special effects. These recordings are grouped by action, with names such as 'Wink Wink', 'Uh Oh' and 'Laughter'.
Animator focuses on ensemble recordings, with differently arranged instrument combinations spread over the keyboard. A selection of articulations is also available for individual instruments, such as a laughing glissando played by just clarinet or trombone. Furthermore, a selection of cartoon sounds from Symphobia 3: Lumina is included.
The Animator interface allows for real-time mixing of the 3 mic positions, independent pitch and speed controlling, tempo syncing and on-the-fly octave shifting.
Price: €175 / $235.
