Dan Dean Solo Strings Advanced is an orchestral sample library featuring chromatically sampled Violin, Viola and Cello in both Solo and Ensemble configurations.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.
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 DDSSAs 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 instruments.
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.
