Cmusic Production has released the SOLO Euphonium Library for Kontakt.
The SOLO Euphonium Kontakt Library is designed to allow the user to realistically imitate virtually any melody that a real Euphonium can play.
It was recorded using two microphones (A – large diaphragm with a cardioid pattern and B – ribbon mic with a figure eight pattern).
CMusicpro's engineers, by means of these unique pairings, have produced a carefully-crafted finished product that is designed to combine the condenser's smooth, natural complexity with the ribbon's extreme sensitivity. The large-diaphragm condenser signals were then summed, and the combined resultant tonal qualities were found to smooth the occasional harsh highs often produced by brass instruments. Additionally, this process enabled a truly mono-capable signal to be produced. Complete balance adjustments between A and B components are possible. Meticulous production techniques, combined with multiple articulations create the impression of a realistic live performance.
Cmusic recorded all intervals for up and down articulation normal Legato. There is the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. LFO vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Sustain, Staccato and Marcato articulations provide added realism by means of a round-robin algorithm. The articulations and exclusive tone were specifically designed to enable a Euphonium solo to stand out clearly "in the mix".
