Kirk Hunter Orchestral Brass Ensembles DVDR 01-10
Orchestral Brass Ensembles (henceforth known as OBE) consists — perhaps unsurprisingly — of orchestral brass ensembles recorded in a 2500-seater concert hall, using players (uncredited, as usual) from an American symphony orchestra. Two mic positions were used, one 30 feet from the players, the second 100 feet back to capture the hall reverb (see diagram, right). This lavish use of space created a collection of big-sounding samples known as the ‘symphonic’ recordings.
In order to offer users sonic choice, Kirk also recorded a second set of samples in the same hall, but first made some significant musical and acoustic changes; section sizes were scaled down, and huge baffles were positioned on stage and in the hall’s ceiling, creating a smaller, more focused room sound (the layout for this setup is shown on page 138). The second sample set, less reverberant and more present-sounding than the first, are called the ‘chamber’ recordings.
Uniquely, Mr. Hunter also deliberately varied the sizes of his trumpet, trombone and French horn ensembles for different dynamic performances, using (for example) eight French horn players to play fortissimo samples, but only four players on the pianissimo notes. According to Kirk, this technique was not pre-planned, but devised during the sampling sessions in order to create a tighter, warmer, and more intimate sound on the softer notes (see the ‘Instrumentation’ box on page 136 for more details).

Symphonic Library Percussion DVD-R Vol.1-2
This Vienna Instruments Collection is a truly magnificent profusion of percussion! Apart from all standard percussion instruments and Performances it contains production-ready instruments, processed with sought-after high-end studio equipment, put into the right perspective with multi-sampled convolution reverb from the Vienna Symphonic Library’s MIR development. The basic percussion instruments (timpani, snare and bass drum, tambourine, suspended cymbals, a-due cymbals, glockenspiel, triangle, xylophone, tubular bells, tam-tam and concert toms) thus are not only available as samples with minimal reverb of the Silent Stage, but also with the reverb of the world-famous Wiener Konzerthaus in various stage positions. Naturally, these MIR impulses implemented in the samples just scratch the surface of the potential and flexibility of the future MIR engine; nevertheless, they offer a preview of its acoustic possibilities and allow the user to work quickly.

Sonic Implants Silk Road Middle Eastern Instruments
Spanning 7000 miles from the Yellow River Valley of Eastern China to the sun-kissed shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the Silk Road is the most prominent and distinguished trade route in the world, having linked the present-day countries of China, India, Iran, Iraq, and Syria for close to 1000 years. Originally established by the Chinese government as a means of trading goods with the Roman Empire, the Silk Road evolved over the centuries to become a symbol of cultural exchange that married the disparate art, music, and religious traditions of the many diverse communities along its path.

Prominy Electric Grand PCP-80
KONTAKT HAlion EXS GIGA SAMPLES
Yamaha Electric Grand CP-80 was manufactured by the Yamaha Corporation in 1976.
Musicians who love rock, progressive rock, fusion, jazz, funk and various types of music love the characteristic warm piano sound of the Yamaha CP-80. This electric piano is considered among the top in standards and is a “must-have” musical instrument.
A huge number of albums and musicians feature the CP-80 on their productions. These musicians include George Duke, Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers, Eddie Jobson in UK, and Peter Gabriel in Genesis. They love its characteristically unique, sharp attack piano sound. Adding a chorusing effect or blending this piano’s timbre into a mix of acoustic and electric instruments adds a luscious sound to any project. The production possibilities are endless.
When you touch a key of the CP-80, the inside hammer strikes directly at the internal tension string. Its structure is mechanically similar to that of a classic acoustic piano. The CP-80fs structure is unique because of the pick-up-microphones installed near these strings to receive the sound. There are 88 pick-up-microphones for each of the 88 keys in this keyboard.
