    Arrow Peter Siedlaczek 'String Essentials', real?

    I report this from another forum
    It seems that Peter Siedlaczeks String Essential will be available by end of September. It will be available as a NI Kontakt player Instrument.

    Comprehensive and easy-to-use virtual string orchestra

    · 14 violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos & 6 double basses
    · no sampler needed
    · spontaneous, playful and intuitive handling
    · thought-out, innovative solutions
    · complex, yet convenient and ergonomic patches
    · completely new material recorded with three different mic set-ups, providing ambient, normal and dry samples
    · world-leading sample player software included
    · works as a plug-in in any standard or as a stand-alone application
    · 17 GB of great sounding samples in 5 lengths and 3 or 4 dynamic layers
    · immediate access to nearly all the playing techniques via key switches
    · fast and convenient sample character shaping using midi controllers
    (Accent, Expression, Crescendo Time, Portamento Depth/Time, Tempo, Run Shift, Release Time, Release Off, etc.)
    · more realism with run and ornamentation tools
    · release trigger
    · multiple alternation switching – from double to quintuple
    · surround


    Best,
    Roberto

    Seems to be. It was in my little pamphlet from Best Services. Still no place to order it, that I'm aware of.

    yeah, I'm very curious to know something more about it, but still no details.

    FYI It's priced the same as the Miroslav Philharmonik-349 Euros- (which of course is a complete orchestral collection, but with limited dynamics).

    Any idea if this will also be released in a real sample lib format?

    I know what you mean.....but if you have Kontakt, you can open any of the Kompakt Player libraries in that. Don't think you can then export it to another format though...

    As far as I know, Siedlaczek will be available as kontakt-player,
    not kompakt-player. Thats a big difference.
    You can load both into Kontakt1 and Kontakt2,
    change and save every detail in the patches, combine new patches.
    But you can´t change ore copy the samples.

    I think the NI product family is a great system.
    It gives you all the freedom you need, but has a copy protection.
    And it works on PC and mac with the same patches.

    What is a sampler?
    Its just a host for samples. so there is no need for different systems.
    I wish there would be just one sample system that covers all needs.
    Nobody needs this converting problems.

    K2 is a big step forward, and I´m shure its not the last.
    NI is growing very fast since most new librarys are based on there system.

    I have to admit that, after a taste of halion player, both Kompakt and Kontakt players appear to me as products of the century.
