A single DVD library comprised of Violin, Viola and Cello in Native
Instruments Kontakt 2 Player, is packed with an array of new
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 which allows you to match the DDSSA’s sound to a captured
snapshot of a different string section or solo instrument. Also by
Numerical Sound, a custom created library of Reverb Impulses custom
designed for use only with the DDSSA. The Dan Dean Solo Strings
ADVANCED is composed of 3 main instrument groups:
All-In-One Instruments, which 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, tremelo, half step trill and
whole step trill. This allows you instant articulation switching.
Legato control via MIDI or pedal is implemented. We have created
special Short Attack sound files in addition to attack and release
controls via MIDI. Alternation is also included in this group of
Voice Control instruments. This is a new programming feature
we devised for this product. We created a proprietary ensemble building
technology transforming 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.
Legacy Programming. 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 is 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. Nothing on the market
sounds as good, has as many features, lower latency or better overall
performance than KONTAKT2. K2 has been thoroughly "road tested" and has
more user hours than all of the other soft-samplers. Use DDSSA as a
stand alone 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. We
returned to the original source recordings and retransferred the sound
files, cleaning up the already beautiful wave 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 highest quality sample recordings give the
keyboardist unprecedented, unparalleled control over previously
unavailable performance variables. The result is a collection of the
finest Solo String instruments and String Ensemble presets available.
They are very easy to use and sound great.
