Cinematique Instruments don't see Ensemblia 2 as an update – they like to call it evolution! For Ensemblia 2 Percussive Cinematique Instruments created an entirely new script with new features, but with some parts of the old scripts, such as the voicing engine, retained.
The first instalment in the Ensemblia 2 series is 'Percussive'. As the name suggests 'Percussive' is an instrument that contains outstanding sample content from over 200 different percussive instruments.
All of the 200+ instruments are right at your finger-tips. They are organised into various categories and groups which are all displayed dynamically. This provides you with quick and easy access to all of the various instruments. An additional pre-listen function lets you try out instruments before selecting them. With Ensemblia 2 Percussive all you have to do is create a pattern, and then choose what instruments you want to follow the pattern. It's as simple as that!
Ensemblia 2 comes equipped with a powerful mixer that contains seven instrument tracks and one master track. Each is equipped with pan, tune, length, delay, reverb, three-band EQ, and envelope compression. An extra unique feature is the option to mix all tracks with matrix panning which lets you position each instrument in a 3D room.
Multi Beat Engine
The arranger was rebuilt from scratch and is now an eight beat arranger. Each beat can be independently divided into either 4 x 16th notes, 8 x 32nd notes, 3 x 8th notes (triplet) or 6 x 16th notes (sextuplet). Besides that, the arranger has become quicker and more complex when it comes the potential dynamic or velocity applied to each note.
Ensemblia 2 Percussive comes with over 600 pre-assembled beats which are easily selectable via the file browser
4 Units in 1
Ensemblia 2 comes with four separate units in one GUI. This lets you easily switch between the four individual units with different beats and rhythms on the fly.
Ensemblia 2 comes with a very modern, and minimalistic design. Everything is self-explanatory and icon based. All elements are located in a very logical and easy-to-use order.
Ensemblia 2 comes with five additional effects which can be quickly dropped in by just pressing a key. This all happens live, and gives you the option to change the sound of your rhythms while they are running.
Beside the master percussive patch, the Ensemblia2 package also consists of 10 further patches. These patches are single instrument patches which gather all the instrument groups together. This enables you to load your choice of instrument groups exclusively into your DAW. For example you could choose to load in just snares, or just shakers etc.
Besides playing a beat via the arranger, you are also able to play the corresponding percussion instruments manually. This expands the possibilities of Ensemblia 2. You can just add specific instrument figures to your beat or just play the beat directly manually and record it to your DAW.
Ensemblia 2 Percussive comes along with one complex patch including the arranger and all 200+ instruments as well as ten separate instrument patches which gather all the certain instrument groups.
The content is approx 3.5K Samples/ 1.3GB compressed data rec in 44/24. All patches and samples are copyright protected and compatible with the current KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.
