Heavyocity Media has released Intimate Textures, a small ensemble strings virtual instrument, and the first installment in their NOVO Packs line. Intimate Textures is designed to combine the organic sounds of violin, viola, and cello chamber string ensembles with Heavyocity's signature hybrid sound design, delivering a palette of cinematic orchestral textures.
Featuring extended techniques like vibrato waves and octave pulses, plus more traditional extended articulations like sul tasto and sul ponticello, Intimate Textures intends to enable composers to create unique orchestral landscapes.
Intimate Textures is powered by the NOVO engine, and features NOVO's processing capabilities, but it can be purchased and run separately, and does NOT require NOVO.
Recorded at Reservoir Studios in NYC, Intimate Textures features professional players, performing in three and four person violin, viola, and cello ensembles. These advanced technique performances deliver a lyrical sound, providing movement and texture with each note performed - designed for scoring to film, games, and television. Composers will find Intimate Textures to ready for their template, with its library of production-ready sounds and content. Intimate Textures features a 14.2 GB library including over 5,000 samples and 192 snapshots.
As a "powered-by-Kontakt" instrument, Intimate Textures offers all playback and sound-shaping functionality through the full version of Kontakt or the free Kontakt 5 Player. NOVO Packs offer a diverse array of independent orchestral expansion libraries housed in Heavyocity's critically-acclaimed NOVO: Modern Strings engine. Use of these packs will not require the purchase of NOVO.
