Babylonwaves releases Art Conductor 8 - support for 86 additional sample libraries (Spitfire, Orchestral Tools, 8DIO, VLS and many others)

babylonwaves

Babylonwaves has released Art Conductor 8, a collection of over 9000 professionally built articulation switching templates available for Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, Studio One and Cakewalk. The new release adds support for 86 additional sample libraries bringing the total to 600.

Here's what they say:

Art Conductor set out to make articulation switching a truthfully enjoyable experience. The way the templates are laid out is designed to get the best out of commercial sample libraries by instilling life and additional realism. Because, in layman's terms, real orchestral instrument players switch their articulation all the time.

So how does it work? With Art Conductor, the most important articulations share the same key switches, use the same naming convention and articulation color across the board. Depending on the DAW, regions can be moved from one orchestra instrument to another and the most important articulations will transfer over.

Users claim that Art Conductor takes away the technicalities when using sample libraries and let them focus more on the creative side. They use up to 90% less tracks in their arrangements, get a superior overview and their sampled instrument sound so much more realistic and alive.

Unified key switches
A Staccato note gets always activated using the note F, whereas, for instance, you dial up Legato with the trigger note C#. The default key switches of the libraries are all setup differently and Art Conductor solves that for you. For those who prefer a menu, the first entry in the list of articulations is always a Sustain/Long and all the rest is sorted alphabetically.

Unified colors
Short notes are red, Long notes are blue, anything with movement like Trills show in green. Why's that important? Because you can look at the edit window and you instantly see which type of articulation is playing, even without reading any name. And again, that's true for every library supported by Art Conductor*.

Unified articulation control
Under normal circumstances, moving a musical motive to a different instrument will render the articulation you've assigned before useless. Art Conductor uses a clever matrices technology to carry the most important articulations over in context*.
