Cinesamples CineStrings CORE

Recorded at the world famous SONY Pictures Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and mixed by veteran legend Dennis Sands, the CineStrings CORE Library covers the essentials of the orchestral string section, and functions as a foundation in any scoring pallette. The result is a string library that is easy to use, composer-friendly, with unparalleled recording quality.
CineStrings library does not require you to purchase any additional sample playback software, and is licensed to work with the Native Instrument’s free Kontakt Player. All you need is a sequencer like Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, LIVE, Pro Tools, Cakewalk, or even Apple GarageBand and you’ll be up and running. You can also use CineStrings with your favorite notation software such as Sibelius or Finale.
INTUITIVE GRAPHICAL INTERFACE
Cinestrings CORE (as with our other “Cine” series libraries) has a very intuitive and easy to use graphical interface with quickly selectable presets that can help you write, program and mix tailored to your specific practices. The mapping page can quickly set you up for velocity, key-switching or even midi continuous controller (CC) articulation switching. Our mixer page allows you to quickly access our full mix or the four other microphone positions. The settings page allows for advanced control over each of these patches for sound design, programming and other useful features.
The CineStrings CORE library contains the basic set of articulations needed to do most of the traditional writing and programming for the string section.
– Non-vibrato, vibrato and espressivo sustains with smooth dynamic morphing across five dynamics and across each vibrato position
– Natural legatos with smooth dynamic morphing across four dynamics
– Spiccato @ 7-8xRR @ pp to f
– Staccato @ 5-6xRR @ pp to fff
– Marcato @ 3xRR @ p to ff
– Sforzando Overlay @ p to ff
– Tremolos @ p to f
– Sul-Pont Tremolos @ p to f
– Trills (Whole-Step and Half-Step) @ p to f
– Pizzicato @ 5xRR @ p to f
– Bartok Pizz @ 3xRR
– Col Legno @ 3-5xRR
– Harmonic Sustains @ p to f

UNIQUE FEATURES
Our newest feature is the “Hairpin Creator”. This amazing setting allows for you to automatically get very natural “swells” without having to program a series of controller changes. Based on time or synced to your DAW, the strings can crescendo and decrescendo as you play, including linking a non-vib to espressivo state – this allows for amazing and expressive playing without having to touch any other controller!
When we released the CineBrass library we added a feature called “staccato overlay” – we have taken this in a new MAJOR direction with our new bow-attack overlay in CineStrings CORE. You can quickly switch types of overlay (Marcato, Sforzando, etc) through a CC, which then is “over-layed” on the sustains and legatos each time you play at a hard velocity. This allows you to simulate many different styles of bow attacks and create unique playing styles on the fly and recall easily in your DAW.
Along with these features, expect a great deal of expansive programability with our interface. You can link the vibrato and dynamic controls, crossfade the tremolos and sul ponts , create your own unique mix, even add in the Sony “Room Tone” and much more!

ABOUT THE PATCHES
We have included 4 main patches per instrument section. Our basic Articulation patch includes Spiccato, Staccato, Legato, Sustains (with 3 vibrato settings), Tremolos (including sul pont), and both half-step and whole-step trills. Our second patch is called True Legato, which is derived from our articulation patch. Pizzicato and Col Legno are in our third patch, followed by Harmonics in our last patch.

What is True Legato? True legato means that we sampled all of the intervalic leaps throughout the ranges, both upwards and downwards, for each string section. When you play a True Legato patch, it instantly analyses the intervals you play, then plays the appropriate transitional leap between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance. For most of our sections we did this at 4 dynamic levels, again using our dynamic morphing to blend seamlessly from pianissimo to fortissimo. A key feature of our legato patch allows you to switch between Mono and Polyphonic Legato mode. Monophonic mode allows for “soli” line playing while Polyphonic mode allows you to play lines of up to 3 notes simultaneously, while maintaining the appropriate transition samples between all notes. This is especially effective when playing chords that need to connect in a realistic way.
Split Patches: We have included every articulation (Half-Step Trill, Sforzando, Col Legno, Spiccato, etc.) as patch splits which are derived from the articulation patch and pizzicato and col legno patch per instrument. This allows you to save memory space if you only need Spiccato and a Sustain patch. While this may increase your track list, many composers choose to have a lot of patches loaded and switch via track instead of keyswitch or velocity.
MULTIS: We are including a series of “unison” and “octave” Kontakt multis which have been pre-set to allow for quick “big” patch performance without having to track split and transpose. These are made from the original patch lists with some minor adjustments to the script to allow for the octave splitting.

The Ensemble:
16 – 1st Violin
12 – 2nd Violin
10 – Viola

7 – Contrabass

Cinesamples CineWinds CORE

WHAT’S NEW IN THE CINEWINDS CORE 1.3 UPDATE:

CINESAMPLES’ ADAPTIVE LEGATO ENGINE
Cinesamples applied its Adaptive Legato Engine from CineStrings SOLO, Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato, and Viola da Gamba to CineWinds CORE. It allows you to tailor the legato response to your own playing style, and is designed to respond musically to your performance. The engine detects your playing speed and intelligently adjusts the interval speed to match. This means you can play slow, expressive lines and fast runs in a single performance, without touching the speed dial. Additionally, the intensity parameter responds to velocity.
In the Settings Tab, the VOLUME RANGE controls how much the volume is affected by CC1. So those who use CC1 and CC11 together can keep the slider all the way down, and those who only use the mod wheel can turn it up.
Using the VEL / ATTACK function, the attack of each note responds to your velocity. Lower velocities will generate a slower attack.
QUANTIZE MODE: In any True Legato instrument, there will be some lag when playing note-to-note transitions. This is usually compensated for by moving all notes slightly to the left in the sequencer, or by using a track pre-delay. The problem with most legato libraries is that the timings of each note are inconsistent; the first note in a phrase will sound immediately, while subsequent notes will be delayed. The Quantize Mode tackles this problem by calculating the legato lag time, and applying the same delay to non-legato samples. This means you can quantize a performance, shift the MIDI to the left, and the timings of each note will be consistent.
NEW MAPPING TAB
CineWinds CORE includes a brand new mapping area styled after CineStrings SOLO that allows for greater flexibility in customizing composer workflows.
ACCENT OVERLAY
The Accent Overlay control layers an additional articulation (Marcato = Short 1/2, Staccato = Short 1/4, Spiccato = Short 1/8) over the attack of sustains. Turning on ACCENTED LEGATO adds this layer to the legato transitions.
NEW VIBRATO CONTROL
In the Mapping tab, the Vibrato fader allows for a variable crossfade speed into and out of vibrato samples. This control defaults to CC2 but can be assigned to any controller.
ENSEMBLE PATCHES
The new Ensemble Patches add the Piccolo at 8va, an octave above the flute. The new Ensemble Chords Patch is a triadic chord builder that functions like CineOrch.
ARTICULATIONS PATCHES
All of the Articulations Patches in CineWinds Core contain shorts of various lengths and dynamics, as well as sustains and trills.
Also, all of the mapping in the Articulations Patches is dynamic, so you can select from 5 intuitive presets in the user interface. A custom mapping grid is offered, for users who wish to customize the parameters beyond the presets. Every parameter and value is changeable, and nearly any combination is possible. Of course, if you are not a tweaker, you can stick with one of the 5 preset mappings (recommended).
TRUE LEGATO PATCHES
What is True Legato? True Legato means that we sampled all of the intervalic leaps throughout the ranges, both upwards and downwards, for each solo woodwind. When you play a True Legato patch, it instantly analyses the intervals you play, then plays the appropriate transitional leap between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance. For all instruments we did this at 3 dynamic levels, again using our dynamic morphing to blend seamlessly from piano to fortissimo. A key feature of our True Legato patches, is the Polyphonic Legato mode. This mode allows you to play lines of 2 or more notes simultaneously, while maintaining the appropriate transition samples between all notes. This is especially effective when playing chords that need to connect in a realistic way.

Cinesamples Artist Series Randy’s Celeste

How “Randy’s Celeste” came into being: “I was asked to create a sound that would capture the magical personality of Hedwig, the Owl in Harry Potter. First, I called up an initialized voice patch on the DX-7 synthesizer to embody the soft character of the celeste. Next, I combined a sample of an actual celeste. After some manipulation of these two instruments, I was able to arrive at the unique sound you hear today.”

Cinesamples CineBrass Twelve Horn Ensemble

CineBrass Twelve Horn Ensemble is an improved version of the classic Twelve Horn patches from our CineBrass PRO library. These patches feature the groundbreaking Cinesamples Adaptive Legato Engine from CineStrings SOLO, adding fluidity and unparalleled realism to your melodic lines. CineBrass Twelve Horn Ensemble was recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles.

Cinesamples VOXOS 2 Epic Choirs

Besides the multitude of patch and script fixes that enhance playability, VOXOS 2 now offers the ability to quantize your Phrase Builder performance and adds another dynamic layer on top of it (FFF!). We’ve also introduced three brand new patches to the library- Chords, Octaves, and a new Solo Soprano.

Cinesamples CineSymphony LITE

ABOUT THIS LIBRARY
CineSymphony LITE is revolutionary in its simplicity and ability to recreate the sound of the orchestra. The library was designed by composers, for composers, with direct feedback from the film community during its development. It was specifically designed to be a composer’s sketch or travel kit, but also a learning kit for beginners. 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 hardware.

PATCH LIST
01 Strings Ensemble Arco LITE
02 Strings Ensemble Pizzicato LITE
03 Brass Ensemble LITE
04 Woodwind Ensemble LITE
05 Timpani LITE
06 Percussion LITE

ABOUT THE PATCHES
While the aim of CineSymphony LITE is to give you a fully playable orchestra in a small set, to truly be able to program samples properly, it is highly recommended that you invest further in the CineSymphony line to get more articulations like harmonics, staccatos, legatos, mutes, trills, etc. The LITE percussion patches provided are just a fraction of what our full-line can offer.

Cinesamples CineWinds PRO v1.3

As with CineWinds CORE, we assembled a team of the finest musicians and crew — we found great comfort and unusual sounds at the SONY Scoring Stage, recorded and mixed by the unparalleled engineer Dennis Sands. The woodwinds in CineWinds PRO are covered with the same depth and nuance as the instruments in CineWinds CORE, and William Lyons gives us a series of ethnic woodwinds of such expressiveness and detail rarely heard in orchestral sample libraries. The PRO expansion features twice the content of the CORE library, and we hope you enjoy every bit of it.
