8DIO Productions Requiem Professional v.1.1 KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
REQUIEM PROFESSIONAL is the next-generation virtual choir developed for professional composers featuring 3 microphone positions (5.1 compatible), full ensemble, divisi male/female and 5 solo singers. The solo singers have four microphone positions, including a new Close Microphone.

The library is based on a variety of new recording- and sampling techniques some which have never before been deployed in choral sample libraries. The library can literally sound like a real choir and includes both full choir (SATB), divisi groups (males/females) and solo singers – all recorded in 24 bit / 44.1khz with 3 (5.1) microphone positions. The library contains true (polyphonic) legato intervals from piano to forte, sustains from piano to forte, staccato with repetitions, ultra forte marcato, BPM (host-synced) based latin chants recorded at different speeds across entire interval of choir, +1000 choral effects including whispers, shouts, clusters, demonic chants, sweeps, consonants without tone, claps, snaps and over +50 different types of effects.

REQUIEM was recorded in one of the most famous cathedrals in San Francisco and has the natural sound and acoustics of this world-class stage.

8Dio Solo Frame Drums KONTAKT 8Dio Solo Frame Drums KONTAKT
8DIO Solo Frame Drum represents one of the most widespread and versatile families of drums – with a history crossing through ancient Middle East, India, Rome and through a variety of Islamic cultures. The Frame Drum defined by the simple characteristic that the width of the drumhead is greater then its depth, but besides from that the Frame Drum comes in thousands of variations. It is known for its distinct sustained sound and its multi-resonant qualities.

The Frame Drum is traditionally tuned with straps or lugs, while others are permanently set at a fixed pitch. Many also incorporate beads, rattles, cymbals, jingles, rings, bells, snares or other accessories, to augment the primary sound and add specialized auxiliary articulations. Some are played with hands, while others use thin sticks, thick bones, soft mallets, combs, brushes and other specialized tools to produce a huge range of unique musical tones and effects. Some members of the Frame Drum family may even lack a striking head and rely entirely on rattles or other elements to produce their sound.

The 8DIO "Solo Frame Drums” library contains 2 styles of Irish Bodhrn, one African Tar drum and a North American tribal buffalo hide shamanic drum. We captured them in a close dry studio setting, covering both traditional and expanded playing styles and articulations. The first Bodhrn is nearly 3 feet wide, with a massive low end much like a concert bass drum. The second is a deep shelled medium sized drum with powerful, clear tonality. The smallest, a tar drum, has a crisp, sharp ring. Our Buffalo drum has a flat, tight sound with a massive subsonic bass blast.

The library is truly covers the traditional sound of resonating frame drums. The library was also designed to be used in conjunction with our "Epic Frame Drums” library, which is focused on capturing big sound ensemble frames and over 1.100 loops. The two libraries makes the perfect couple, since "Solo Frame Drums” covers some of the more intimate and deep sounds – where "Epic Frame Drums” covers more that brutal, big, bad-ass type of sound used in epic scores.

Wavesfactory BlackToms 2.0 KONTAKT Wavesfactory BlackToms 2.0 KONTAKT
BlackToms 2.0 is a percussion sample library for NI Kontakt 4.2.4 and above.
It features 3 sets of drum toms: high, mid and low. 

In this new version we added up to 21 tom layers, new script, interface and 2 microphone positions. 

Use the "sub" knob to add a sub-octave layer for a deep taiko sound. The goal of this library is to offer the best sounding epic toms recorded in a dry studio. Most of the epic percussion libraries on the market have embedded in them the reverb of the hall they were recorded in, reverb that you can't get rid of and, if you want to use your own reverb you have to apply reverb to a reverbered signal which is not a good idea. But you won't have this problem with BlackToms 2.0.

Tech Info

Stereo files, 44.1KHz 24bit.
From solo up to 21 layers.
6 velocity layers, 6 round robin.
High, mid and low toms.
EQ, reverb and imaging effects.
Envelope with attack and release controls.
2 microphone positions.
Sub-octave effect.
3GB compressed to 1.5GB.

Tonehammer Lakeside Organ EXS24 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Lakeside Organ EXS24 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Lakeside Pipe Organ is a part steel pipe and part electric organ that produces most of its sound by venting mechanically compressed air (wind) through resonant pipes. Each pipe produces sound of one fixed pitch, so they are provided in sets with one pipe or more per note, each set or stop having a common timbre and loudness throughout.The Lakeside Pipe Organ has multiple sets of pipes of differing timbre, pitch and loudness which the player can employ singly or in combination. The actual organ is made from three keyboards, played by the hands, and a pedal board for bass notes, played by the feet, each of which controls its own group of stops.

We carefully recorded our organ at the Lakeside Temple of Practical Christianity (Oakland, CA), with master organist Don Sears. We captured it a variety of different stop settings and combinations, allowing you to control the timbre of the organ. We recorded five different settings comparably from PP to FF. The majority of this library focuses on the classic steel pipes only, although we also opened up some of the organ's vintage electric stops for a little extra low-end reinforcement on our high 5th setting. All settings recorded at two microphone positions (close/far), so user have ultimately flexibility between 10 different organ settings. Every note was captured for up to ten seconds and all release-triggered samples were captured individually.

Additionally we realized that many other organ sample libraries use noise reduction, which gives a more polished/clinical or even garbled sound to the organ. We decided to take the opposite approach and allow all the air sounds in the library, since the "noise" is the air produced by the bellows and pipes that drive the instrument. This means that the organ has a more clearer, brighter, fuller, much more life-like and airy sound (especially in softer settings), giving it a more emotionally expressive and natural quality.

Tonehammer Didgeridoo KONTAKT-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Didgeridoo KONTAKT-DYNAMiCS
Didgeridoo (aka Didge) is an Australian Aboriginal wind instrument dating back over approx.1500-2000 years. The instrument is made from Eucalyptus logs hollowed out by termites and is widely regarded as one of the oldest woodwind (aerophone) instruments in existence. Tonehammer recorded two different Didges for maximum user flexibility. The first one was is an original Eucaplyptus log and the second one is modern version made from PVC pipes. The library contains over approx. 500MB of samples and programs contain modwheel controlled time-stretching and sample offset options allowing users to get more flexibility out of the samples. The Didges come at two different mic (close/medium) distances and a far mic for our dual-didge FX group. Didge 1 is close mic and Didge 2 is medium mic.

Effects.

Recorded with 3 microphone positions, 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin. All samples normalized to 0db, resulting in 128 volume steps, giving a much natural sound and feel.

The best feature on the library is being able to control the roll intensity with the modwheel. No more time-fixed samples which are very hard to sync with your track. With Suspended Cymbals you can control or play the rolls yourself.

On the mixer section you can mix each microphone position and apply convolution reverb with any of the 30 provided impulses, highpass and lowpass filters and envelope with attack, hold and decay.
On the settings section you can control the volume of each articuation separately, round robin repetitions, dynamic range, muffling time, velocity curve and voicing.

The cymbals: Zildjian Custom Session Crash 16", Zildjian Avedis Custom 18", Zildjian Dark Medium Thin 18", Paiste Masters Dark Crash 18" and Istanbul Mehmet Traditional 18".
We want this library to become the go-to for suspended cymbals, you'll find everything you need. It won't go any better than this!
