Viola da Gamba

The Viola da Gamba is a 6-stringed bowed and fretted instrument that first appeared in Spain in the mid to late 15th century and was most popular in the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Cinesamples' Viola da Gamba was recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles.

Viols are fretted in a manner similar to early guitars or lutes, by means of movable wrapped-around and tied-on gut frets. The movable nature of the tied-on frets permits the viol player to make adjustments to the tempering of the instrument. On this particular instrument, the frets only extend 7 semi-tones on each string.

This instrument is strung with 6 gut strings that are tuned to (relative to Kontakt):

  • D1, G1, C2, E2, A2, and D3.

 

THE PATCHES

THE ARTICULATIONS PATCH
The main articulations patch contains sustains, True Legato, staccato, chug, sforzando, pizzicato (via the red keyswitch), with an optional accent overlay.

TRUE LEGATO
What is True Legato? We sampled all of the intervallic leaps throughout the ranges, upwards and downwards, for each instrument. When you play a True Legato patch, it instantly analyzes the intervals you play, and then plays the appropriate transitional leap between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance.

VIBRATO CROSSFADE
CC02 will crossfade into vibrato on notes D3 thru D4. Vibrato is stable only on non-fretted notes on the Viola da Gamba.

THE DRONES PATCH
The Drones patch contains Measured Sustains, Trills, Tremolos, Sul Ponticello Drones, and Open Strings. By default these articulations are chosen using keyswitches.

THE SPLIT KEYBOARD PATCH
The Split Keyboard patch is essentially a combination of the Drones patch and the main Articulations patch. The lower octaves keyswitch between Measured Sustains, Tremolos, and Sul Ponticello Drones, while the upper octaves play sustains and legato with the pedal down and Staccato with the pedal up. The two halves of the keyboard can be played together or independently.

THE INFINITE BOW
Most patches contain a green, non-latching Keyswitch. Hold it down before transitioning to a note you want played with an infinite sustain. This is understandably an unnatural occurrence, but it provides the necessary bow length needed in slower tempi.

Dulcimer and Zither

This is the first instalment of Cinesamples' World Series lines and introduces the family of the Dulcimer and Zither, a favored instrument color by composers throughout the ages and around the globe. Recorded at the famous Firehouse Recording Studios in Los Angeles, and mixed by esteemed engineer Tim Starnes, the Dulcimer and Zither library will add stunning brilliance and color to any scoring palette.

The Cinesamples WORLD SERIES: Dulcimer & Zither is unmatched in its sound and simplicity due to the choice of instruments and recording technique. The library was designed by composers, for composers, with direct feedback from the film music community during its development. The result is a library that is easy to use, composer-friendly, and sounds professionally mixed right out of the box without being too demanding on studio hardware.

ABOUT THE PATCHES
All patches generally contain hits and / or plucks recorded at varying dynamics with up to 10 round robins. Depending on the instrument, we recorded samples using different mallets, hammers, bows, plectrums and finger plucks in several mic positions.

Users can choose from 3 microphone positions - Close, Room, and Full Mix which contains a mix of Close/ Room and additional microphones. Cinesamples also carefully chose the instruments that were to be recorded in order to ensure the best sound quality.

The most notable choice was the piano dulcimer which was sampled chromatically (10RR) to reproduce the typical stereo image of the instrument. We also auditioned several mallets and made the most useful and artistic choices.

In addition to general GUI functions such as Delay, Reverb, and Envelope Control, we are also introducing our very own Arpeggiator with this library. This feature will give users control over alternate modes of arpeggios, including the ability to sync to the host tempo in the user's DAW of choice.
