Postby Sampleconstruct; Sun Mar 29, 2015 5:40 pm Aureus Ventus for HALion 5 released on patchpool

I just released my second library for the one and only HALion 5:

Image

Aureus Ventus - Golden Wind - is a unique library for HALion 5 which combines flute with all sorts of achromatic and chromatic percussion instruments like Hang percussion, various chimes (also glass chimes), glockenspiel, gongs, crotales, bells, singing bowls, some deep drums, break drums (steel break discs) and more.

The flute sounds for this library are created by using a special playing technique named Pars-Pro-Toto, invented by german flutist Andreas Mazur who also performed the samples used in Aureus Ventus. He found a method to create beautiful and expressive flute sounds by playing on the single parts of a conventional flute using special fingerings and embouchure techniques. This yields sounds somewhere in between a shakuhachi, an okarina, a viola and a voice, hard to describe in words really…

Multi-sampled bass flute instruments, some vocal and string sounds and temposynced percussion loops are also included in this library.

In addition to the above a wealth of electronic derivatives create a counterpoint to the acoustic sound worlds. Tonal soundscapes, ethereal tinkles, warm and ominous drones, minimal sequences, lush pads and other fascinating textures created with programs like Kaleidoscope, crusherX, Metasynth, GRM Tools, Serum and Zynaptiq’s Morph are layered with the acoustic sounds to create expressive instruments.

Many of the patches make use of HALion’s exceptional granular engine, it’s deep sample player and the synth engine, often layering or splitting different synthesis forms in one patch with key- switchable articulations or sound-combinations and round robin alternations.

All of the 108 patches have the 8 Quick Controls and the Modulation Wheel assigned, many also use Aftertouch and/or HALion’s Sphere-modulator, some make use of the Flex Phraser and Trigger Pads.

You can view/download the PDF for Aureus Ventus with more details, the licence agreement and a patch list including playing tips and detailed descriptions for each patch here.

Aureus Ventus is distributed as a HALion vstsound-archive for the sample content and tagged vst-presets.

Specifications:
    *108 patches
    *3.99 GB of original samples
    *Delivery: download
    *Price (paypal): € 68 EUR
    •All acoustic instrument-samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R at 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic and a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R, in some scenarios a Shure KSM 141 substituted the U87 and sometimes 4 mics were used simultaneously.
    *All microphone signals are phase-aligned

Please note: the full version of HALion 5 is required to play the patches from this library.

More info and pictures of some of the sampled instruments can be found on the product page.

----

All demos were produced entirely with HALion5 using only patches from Aureus Ventus, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of HALion were used in a track. More audio demos are coming soon...

Here comes a first video demo, displaying an improvisation with the patch Crotales Flute, which layers a granular flute with granular crotales and a HAlion-synth module, volume control for each layer via Macros, the Modwheel applies different kinds of modulation to each layers, filter- and FX control via more Macros.

Dolphin Dance - 3 fresh patches from this library in one demo, the involved (temposynced) break drum loops (warp mode) were played on these nice sounding brake discs:

New demo: two new patches from this library in one dark ambient march, both are split patches, that's why you hear so many sounds from only 2 presets.

http://soundcloud.com/sampleconstruct/p ... r-halion-5

On Sunday I had another great recording session with the flute player Andreas Mazur, this playing technique he invented (Pars-pro-Toto) really produces some totally beautiful and amazing flute sounds I've never heard before. I will start cutting/editing the new samples tomorrow and patchify them asap. Stay tuned...

This new demo features 3 patches from Aureus Ventus, all the flute phrases were played on the combination of the middle and the bottom part of the flute without the mouthpiece. I preserved all microtonal things, the phrases can be coarse- and finetuned with Macros, sample start can be altered with another Macro, then there will be a second key-switchable granular layer where you can also determine sample speed. I haven't cut all of the phrases from the second recording session yet, there is more to come, and also we recorded single notes with all possible pitches from that combination. The background sounds (also the choir-like pad) in the demo are flutes mixed with bowed crotales and electronic derivatives of bowed singing bowls.

Here comes a rather epic demo using two new patches from Aureus Ventus. The gong patch uses samples I made by scanning my wind gong with a S57 very closely after attacking it with a soft beater capturing all these amazing overtones, the mono signal was processed with a slow Uhbik stereo tremolator so the drone moves around your head. A U87 and a Sure KSM 141 both running in omnidirectional mode are picking up the stereo image from about 60 cm distance. There are 2 key-switchable versions, one using 4 velocities and the other one using 3x round robins with soft attacks only, the sustained drones are crossfade-loope so you can bathe in them for hours :)

The string sounds were made from cello, violin and Kaleidoscope sources, a multi-zone granular patch.

Here comes a demo combining two new patches which make use of samples, shaking rubber balls inside the Hang instrument, creating those fascinating pentatonic textures. One patch uses two of those textures layered with their electronic derivatives, one pair on each side of the keyboard, all samples playing in granular mode with sample speed control and other granular goodies, filter stuff, FX etc.

The other patch uses all 4 of those texture split across the keyboard in normal sampling mode, 2 octaves each, plenty of controls for filtering, pan modulation, FX etc are available.

There is an audio demo:

...and a video showing all the automation I did in LogicX, automating the Macros, the Sphere, Aftertouch and the Modwheel.

Here comes a demo for the patch Break Drums 4Vel 3RR, which uses samples of these 4 break discs:

Image

I transposed each of the 4 sampled pitches up and down, making for 240 keyzones altogether in HALion 5, so that you get a 4 octave instrument with 4 velocity layers and 3x round robin. All controllers and Macros were used in the demo, tweaking them on the fly in several passes after jamming in/editing the Midi notes. Everything you hear is Halion, nothing else.
