A violin, viola and cello library for the KONTAKT 2 Player.
Dan Dean Solo Strings ADVANCED (DDDSA) is a single DVD library comprised of violin, viola, and cello for the Native Instruments KONTAKT 2 Player. Solo Strings is packed with an array of great programming features, technologies, and ensemble presets.
Convolution-Timbral and Reverb
This is the first sampling product to employ Timbral Impulse technology developed with Numerical Sound. It allows you to match the DDSSA's sound to a captured snapshot of a different string section or solo instrument. Also included is a custom-created library of Reverb Impulses custom designed for use only with the DDSSA by Numerical Sound. The Dan Dean Solo Strings ADVANCED library is composed of 3 main instrument groups:
These instruments feature all articulations of each solo instrument (Violin, Viola and Cello) accessible via keyswitching. All six articulations are laid out on separate keyswitches—arco, spiccato, pizzicato, tremolo, half step trill, and whole step trill. This allows you instant articulation switching. Legato control via MIDI or pedal is implemented. Dan Dean has created special Short Attack sound files in addition to attack and release controls via MIDI as well. Alternation is also included in this group of instruments.
Voice Control Instruments
This is a new programming feature devised especially for this product. Dan Dean created a proprietary ensemble-building technology to transform the Solo String samples into beautiful, lush ensembles. Using the Voice Control feature, you can access a solo instrument, 3 instruments, or 6 instruments via keyswitching or modwheel. In the case of the violins, you can choose many different variants, from solo instrument to 2 Violin 1 + 1 Violin 2, 3 Violin 1, 3 Violin 1 + 3 Violin 2, 6 Violin 1, 6 Violin 1 + 6 Violin 2 (12 Violins). Each of these ensembles has a distinctly different timbre. All of the Ensemble presets were captured in 24-bit and are extremely quiet. We have added attack and decay control via MIDI and legato control via MIDI and sustain pedal.
These are the plug-and-play/drag-and-drop instruments you have become used to over the years. Find the instrument you want, open it, and play. Sustain pedal controls sustain. Keyboard velocity behaves as you would expect it to. If you want to adjust attack and sustain characteristics, it is ready via MIDI.
Powered by the KONTAKT2 Plug-In
KONTAKT2 is known for its great sound, many features, lower latency, and better overall performance. K2 has been thoroughly road-tested, and has more user hours than all of the other soft-samplers. Use DDSSA as a standalone application. KONTAKT2 works on the MAC in OS X (now supporting "Mactel" computers) or on the PC in Windows. Because DDSSA is a plug-in, open it in Logic, Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Cubase, Sonar, Garage Band or in any VST, DXi supported application.
High quality sample recordings with virtually no noise
The producers at Dan Dean returned to the original source recordings and retransferred the sound files, cleaning up the already beautiful WAV files. There is no noise or other artifacts in the DDSSA. The solo instruments are 16-bit, full-scale and the ensemble presets are 24-bit. The ensemble arco, arco SA, tremelo, trill half step, and trill whole step are looped.
These extraordinary programming features and technologies in conjunction with the high quality sample recordings give the keyboardist incredible control over previously unavailable performance variables. The result is a collection of exceptional solo string instruments and string ensemble presets. They are very easy to use and sound great.
