As part of their all-new Modular Series, Westgate Studios is proud to announce the release of The Oboes Module. This library for Gigastudio 3.1 and Kontakt 2.1 features 24 bit samples recorded by Grammy award-winning engineer Tim Kimsey. On the DVD you will find a comprehensive set of patches for Solo Oboe, Solo English Horn and Oboe Section.
The most important feature of this library is the Legato playing style. These patches contain not only expressive long notes, but also true legato interval samples that were recorded as the musicians played every note up and down from 1 half-step all the way up to a full octave. You don’t have to load any special tools to control them because the Legato effect is powered by Gigastudio’s iMIDI rules and Kontakt’s scripting engine. You can also vary the Attack Strength of each note, control the use of Release Samples, and play Same-Note Legato Repetitions in any rhythm or tempo.
Each of the oboe patches also allows you complete Tone Control within the instrument. If you prefer a “darker” sound, simply adjust control change 4 until you like what you hear.
Along with these highlights you’ll also find Staccato and Marcato articulations, Trills, Octave Runs and changing dynamics such as Crescendos, Diminuendos, and Fortepiano. Eerie Multiphonic Effect samples are included as well.
With an MSRP of $100 (US), the Oboes Module is available on DVD for either Gigastudio 3.1 or Kontakt 2.1. The samples included are 24bit\44.1k\stereo recordings of Solo Oboe, Solo English Horn and Oboe Section.
