Crocus Soundware introduces ITASCA: Legato Violins


Crocus Soundware just released ITASCA: LEGATO VIOLINS .  For a limited time, this string library is available for $42 (regular price $70).  The full version of Kontakt 6.7.1 or higher is required.  More details from Crocus Soundware below.


Introducing ITASCA: LEGATO VIOLINS, a pair of closely recorded violin libraries – playable using the full version of Kontakt 6.7.1+.  The core library features a true sampled legato engine, meaning the performer’s transitions between notes have been recorded and programmed into the software. This allows the user to play interconnected melodic passages, with various types of transition samples seamlessly carrying the performance from note to note. The sustain samples are long, expressive and evolving, with the performer imparting character and movement into each.

The user-interface allows the whole melodic line to be creatively assembled from its constituent parts: the head, sustain, legato transition and tail. Key-switching and velocity are be used while playing to dictate which parts comprise the complete melodic line. For example, a high velocity at the start of a new note will trigger a sample with a cutting and pressured bow sound, whereas a soft velocity during a note transition might trigger a slow glissando.

The software provides solo and ensemble recordings, allowing the user to layer up to six players. Different sustain articulations can be activated at the same time, offering further creative possibilities.
