Cinematique Instruments releases Ensemblia for Kontakt

Cinematique Instruments

Cinematique Instruments has released Ensemblia, a new orchestra sample library for Kontakt.

Ensemblia is intended to be the sound of a modern chamber orchestra that allows a user to easily write organic and truly natural music. A selected range of classical instruments combined with a mix of unique sounds are ready for cinematic suspense, drama and comedy or even to give a special spice to Pop and R'n'B tracks.

Ensemblia was built to create polyphonic chamber arrangements and textures while a user plays chords or single notes. It isn't necessary to record phrases, a 16-step arranger can do it and Ensemblia can layer up to 7 instruments at a time giving a user access to a broad range of timbres and tone colors while playing. A special voicing engine will split notes and chords automatically into separate voices and individually assign them to each instrument.

In creating Ensemblia the developers aimed to create a modern minimalistic ensemble sound inspired by composers such as Michael Nyman, Philip Glass or Steve Reich.

Instruments

Cinematique Instruments has recorded a violin, a viola, a cello and a horn in several articulation such as spiccato, staccato, pizzicato and long notes (normal, ponticello, harmonics) – all in up to 5 velocity layer and 4 round robin variations. Beside that, they re-recorded their stock marimba with an additional lower octave and added the Upright Piano, the Baritone Trombone, the Shruti Box, the Bowed Psaltery and the Alto Glockenspiel out of their library:

  • Classical: Violin, Viola, Cello, French Horn, Baritone Trombone.
  • Mallet: Marimba (C2-C5), Alto Glockenspiel.
  • Additional: Upright Piano, Shruti Box, Bowed Psaltery.

Two patches: Longs and Shorts

Ensemblia comes in two separate patches: "longs" and "shorts". The instruments are spread over 7 slots - each of them provide separate mixing and editing options. Both patches are delivered with different tabs: a master page where a user can choose presets and set several global parameters and a mixer page where a user can mix and edit all 7 instruments. Furthermore, the "shorts" patch is containing an additional arranger page that lets a user define and build polyphonic 16 step patterns.

Voicing

Both patches are equipped with a voicing engine that lets a user spread certain voices to particular instruments. While playing notes or chords Ensemblia automatically analyzes the playing and splits all incoming notes into 5 voices which are low – midlow – mid – midhigh – high. A user can separately assign these 5 voices to each instrument at their own requirements.

Arranger

The arranger is a 16-step ostinato engine that sets the velocity, the voicing and the octave for each step and instrument separately. It plays the flexible pattern using only notes and chords that are held down. As a result a user can get versatile and inspiring musical patterns and riffs playable in all ranges and speed variations. There are no pre-recorded phrases. Optionally a user can play in- or off-sync.

Price: 197,00€.
