2007 Winter NAMM Show: Audio Impressions announced a comprehensive new musical library with powerful software that, according to the company, deliver quality, realism and real-time control never before possible. The library uses the company’s real-time orchestration algorithms to change the number of virtual players and even the size of their enviroment to provide optimal sound.
Developed under the guidance of film & TV composer Christopher L. Stone, Realtime Instruments powered by patented DVZ contains over 600 separately recorded instruments, including a 70-piece string section. Users can play every effect and articulation for every instrument, change the number of players and alter the size of their environment – all in real-time without key switching or loading any additional samples.
DVZ RT Orchestrator automatically orchestrates in real time, allocating played notes among the active instruments to preserve optimum orchestral balance while avoiding unwanted harmonic thickening and power buildup as more notes are played. Performance driven Orchestral blur (a patent pending combination of methods to simulate live playing) increases the realism and particularly the natural blending of strings. DVZ RT brings never before possible features such as continuously variable clusters and independent control over each player’s tuning.
AI’s patent-pending SPACE microphone bleed technology creates a true ensemble feel while allowing the user to place each instrument anywhere in the virtual sound field, and to change the size and sonic characteristics of the environment in real time without loading any new samples.
Realtime Instruments is the first comprehensive 192 kHz 24 bit library, and it was recorded using vintage condenser and ribbon mics, a processor-free direct-to-disk signal chain, and many prized instruments played by first call musicians in the worlds’ finest studios.
