Audio Impressions 70 DVZ Strings
Audio Impressions, Inc. has officially released their 70 DVZ Strings orchestral sample library.
70 DVZ Strings features real-time, continuously-adjustable articulations and styles without stopping to load or unload alternate samples. You can continuously vary the bow position up and down, side to side, and where each of the strings cross over as the left hand moves up the neck. Or, you can leave everything in auto mode and just play.
70 DVZ Strings is recorded with 32 separate desks: 10 solos and 22 desks of two or more players that add up to the total of 70 players. You can size the orchestra to your project without loading or unloading predetermined ensemble sizes.
Audio Impressions is the first company to use Chris Stone’s real-time divisi process, DVZ. DVZ is designed to overcome the unnatural “organ” sound that characterizes conventional string sample libraries. The DVZ process automatically divides chords being played and distributes them in real-time to the number of players you’ve selected, keeping the number of players constant no matter how many notes are in a chord. This supposedly eliminates the unrealistic sound power build-up caused by the same samples being multiplied again and again. 70 DVZ Strings offers finer orchestral balances than libraries that only have predetermined sampled sections that must be turned into divisi sections manually.
70 DVZ Strings is powered by Native Instruments’ included Kontakt 4.1 Player and runs on one Intel Core i7 computer with 8 GB RAM and dual hard drives. Audio Impressions is selling 70 DVZ Strings in the US and Canada through their website. Turnkey systems are available through select resellers. Please check the Audio Impressions website for updated information.
Pricing & Availability
Priced at $1495 MSRP, 70 DVZ Strings bundles together Audio Impressions patented DVZ Core Engine and SPACE software. You can avoid the cost and sonic impact of audio cards by adding audio-over Ethernet connectivity between 70 DVZ Strings and your sequencer (with Audio Impressions’ AudioPort Universal along with jStuff’s jBridge) for under $150.
