Cinesamples Artist Series: Tina Guo v1.4 KONTAKT
An expansive arsenal of innovative sound design and composition tools brought to life through a collection of expressive electric and erhu performances. The Acoustic Cello Legato patches, recorded at the legendary MGM Scoring Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, includes Cinesamples’ CineStrings Solo Legato engine and Infinite Bow feature. For owners of Kontakt (Full and Player) 5.8.1 or higher.
V1.4 INFINITE BOW
We are excited to announce that Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato and Tina Guo now have the Infinite Bow feature found in all of our solo string products: Tina Guo vol 2, Taylor Davis, CineStrings SOLO, and Viola da Gamba.
By default, Tina’s natural bow changes occur on sustained notes. Use the sustain pedal or the green Key Switch before a sustained note to extend the bow length as needed. This is understandably an unnatural occurrence, but it provides the necessary bow length required in slower tempi. Simply re-attack the note when you need a bow change on the same note.
The Tina Guo library offers an exquisitely unique and progressive take on the Acoustic and Electric Cello, as well as the traditional Chinese instrument, the Erhu. Encapsulating Tina’s ultra-expressive and experimental performance style within a sample library is an undertaking that was accomplished through blurring the lines between music and sound design – a vital element of her music. An expansive arsenal of innovative sound design and composition tools introduce a multitude of new ways to explore and create fresh sounds that will certainly take your productions to the next level.
Reflecting the fact that Tina’s sound and approach to her instruments are constantly evolving, the library includes a multitude of inventive features that give the player the opportunity to similarly develop fresh sound in many new and different ways. These include:
The Phrase Builder: A system for constructing melodic ideas using fragments of Tina’s performances in a variety of playing styles
Drone Designer: Create variable sonic beds by manipulating intensity and navigating through long samples of unfolding cello drones using the Mod wheel
Built-in Granular Synth FX: Explore harmonically rich and complex sound design spread across the stereo field with left-right grainer functionality
Repeated Note Round Robin Staccatos (RNRRS): A new function that automatically switches to a separate RR sample set upon repeating a short note, resulting in a far more natural cello sound and feel
Requires Kontakt 5.8.1 and above (Works with both the free Kontakt Player and the paid, full version of Kontakt)
