The 2.6GB collection contains almost 10000 24-bit 48hz samples across 15 solo instruments.

All of the instruments share a common interface so you only need to become familiar with one of them to know them all. The features of each instrument vary slightly as required to replicate them accurately but the interface stays the same. You can use it to easily customise key switches and controller assignments, set microphone levels or purge sample groups, and sit the instruments perfectly in your templates and virtual environments.

The library was recorded in a controlled studio setting with a variety of closely positioned microphones providing very dry samples with minimal room sound. Each instrument offers at least three microphones for you to choose from or you can use a combination of them together. They can be individually panned and purged and there is also a special noise channel for setting the amount of instrument noise you want to hear, increasing this is perfect for a really intimate close sound while dialling it down is great for pushing the instrument back in the mix or placing it in a wetter space.

The instruments are designed to be performed and avoid burdening you with dozens of key switches to move between articulations, instead favouring a more natural approach to playing with a MIDI keyboard and a few continuous controllers (CCs). There is a vast range of performance options that should come naturally to most keyboard/piano players; if you want a short note then play a short note, if you want a crescendo you need only raise the dynamics controller, to add an accent you can play with increased velocity.

The library features fully playable algorithmic glides/portamento and legato that accurately model the real world instruments. Through the use of a sustain pedal (or CC of your choice) it is possible to play legato transitions for repetitions of a single note. Our instruments calculate the perfect transition based on the way you are playing the instrument, taking into account numerous parameters to make sure the transition is smooth and doesn't adversely affect the timing of your performance or force you to pace your playing to match the speed of interval samples and crossfades. Our legato scripting also offers a re-trigger mechanism to allow you to easily play realistic trills of any tempo, duration, and interval.

Every instrument in the library has one or more mutes available that can be activated via a customisable key switch. These mutes open the library up to a whole range of musical styles and genres beyond the traditional orchestral setting. The plunger and harmon mutes available for some of the instruments can also make use of a dynamic and playable wah-wah effect, easily controlled by a customisable CC.
