A special message from Peter Siedlaczek:
Dear Friends, I am happy to introduce this comprehensive, thought-through and ergonomic virtual stringed instrument sample collection. It couldn't have been realized without today's computer and sampler technology. In its carefully programmed patches you will find many innovative solutions, to help achieve your music goals even more quickly. The result is a spontaneous, playful and intuitive handling of the sounds. With a unified key switch system and direct, instant access to all the important articulations. Including quintuple alternation switch (Staccato, Quarter Notes) and precise control of the dynamic response of the samples using different MIDI parameters. String Essentials will enable you to focus on the most essential part of your activity - your music - creatively and easily. Just load and play it! New great sounding samples in 5 different lengths, 3 or 4 dynamic levels, runs and natural release samples have been carefully recorded using 3 microphone placements: close (dry), normal and ambient. You choose the best sound for your music. Including Surround! I did my best to use the power of the world's leading technology, the Native Instruments Kontakt Sampler down to the last detail. The result is a complex, yet easy-to-use musical instrument.
Purchase with confidence!
Purchase of this sample library after January 1, 2007 qualifies for a free* upgrade to a new version that includes Kontakt 2 Player (includes universal binary compatibility) upon release (approx. sometime after April 1, 2007).
*PLEASE NOTE NATIVE INSTRUMENT'S KONTAKT PLAYER IS NOT INTEL MAC COMPATIBLE, IF YOU WISH TO USE THIS PRODUCT WITH AN INTEL MAC YOU NEED TO OWN KONTAKT 2.2 OR LATER.
