Soniccouture has announced the release of Threnody: Avant-Garde Strings for Kontakt Player and the full version of Kontakt.
The focus in Threnody is on avant-garde string articulations, such as those you hear in late 20th century orchestral music or science fiction film soundtracks.
Threnody features a large string section of 60 musicians (16-14-12-10-8). Over 30 microphones were used in the hall, and these have been mixed down to three stereo channels: the main tree, the spot mics, and the ambience mics.
Threnody features 26 different articulations sampled across the entire orchestral range, which can be layered with an XY controller to create interesting orchestral shapes and movements.
- 60 Piece Orchestra.
- 26 Articulations.
- 3 Mic Channels.
- Kontakt Player 6 + NKS Compatible.
Until June 18th, 2021, you can get 20% off the list price of €249 / $299 at the Soniccouture Website. No code required, the price is marked.
