Cinematic Samples Cinematic Studio Woodwinds v1.3 KONTAKT
A powerful wind instrument sample library for Kontakt Player Cinematic Studio Woodwinds is a superbly versatile library that will add a new and important dimension to your musical palette. With the gorgeous sound and stunning realism of these instruments you’ll find yourself wanting to feature woodwinds in your musical creations in new and exciting ways. Boasting the same intuitive and efficient GUI as the strings and brass, CSW is designed to perfectly complement the rest of the Cinematic Studio Series. This outstanding orchestral wind instrument library is available now for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
NEW! CINEMATIC STUDIO WOODWINDS Cinematic Studio Woodwinds is the latest addition to the Cinematic Studio Series collection. Whether you want to blow the roof off with the bright penetrating sound of the piccolo, express emotion with the beautiful lyrical oboe, or vibrate the floor with the deep and powerful bass clarinet, these superb instruments bring warmth and vitality to your orchestral template. They perfectly complement the rest of the series: the Strings, Solo Strings, Brass and Piano.
INTUITIVE, EASY-TO-USE INTERFACE At the heart of Cinematic Studio Woodwinds is its intuitive and efficient GUI. This means one patch per instrument, easily assignable keyswitches and MIDI CCs, and a full mixer with output routing options plus reverb. To save memory, articulations can be loaded in or out of RAM with a couple of clicks. As the layout is functionally the same as for Cinematic Studio Strings and Brass, these features and many others are all accessible via the main GUI page.
BROAD PALETTE – SOLOISTS AND SECTIONS To record Cinematic Studio Woodwinds we used a marvellous selection of top-tier players to capture the full range and character of each of nine solo instruments and four sections. Whether you want the fine detail of a soloist, or the warm collaborative synergy of our two-player sections, we recorded the full dynamic range to harness both nuance and power. Every instrument was treated equally, including the piccolo, cor anglais, alto flute, bass clarinet and contrabassoon.
VERSATILITY AND REALISM CSW features a range of articulations including playful short notes, expansive textures with flutter-tongue and trills, and a stunningly realistic legato engine. We spent countless hours recording true long-form legato transitions for each note, resulting in unparalleled realism. Because we’ve kept an authentic, human element in the sound you’ll feel like you’re in the room with the players. Every sample was tuned by ear, and carefully edited and programmed to ensure a delicate balance between consistency, playability and realism.
FULLY MIXED – LOAD AND PLAY We used a variety of beautiful ribbon and condenser microphones to record Cinematic Studio Woodwinds at four mic distances: Close, Overhead, Main and Room, which you can combine to create your own mix inside Kontakt or via the output-routing option. Alternatively, you can use our ready-to-go mix position that contains all four mics in a stereo mix if you want a great sound with fewer resources. A Full Ensemble patch will be released as an update in the near future.
COMPATIBLE WITH FREE KONTAKT PLAYER Cinematic Studio Woodwinds is fully compatible with the free Kontakt Player, and will work as a standalone product with no need to purchase additional software. CSW is also designed for use with the new exciting range of NKS Keyboards.
