┬áHere’s what they have to say about Da Capo:

It has been a dream to create a library like this. Sonokinetic has put in their utmost best to produce this unique instrument. After a long production we proudly present to you ‘Da Capo’.

Multisampling orchestral instruments is the most coveted and demanded area in the sampling industry and we are very much aware of that. So we set out to build an instrument that matches up to the high quality standards composers and producers expect whilst trying not to overcomplicate the instrument. There are so many possible options and details with multisampling that the usability, accessibly and playability can easily become lost a load of technical options. Therefore we decided to keep things as straight forward from a users perspective as possible.

Da Capo enables legato playing in the most common areas of the orchestral setup. This legato offers you a unique chance to play Polyphonic section legato within the same instrument patch. Intelligent Polyphonic section legato provides realism without adding to the instrument complexity.

Due to the ‘all in one’ approach which Sonokinetic believes in, there is another option available that makes Da Capo score high on the efficiency scale. This instrument can easily stack sections and articulations including the intelligent Polyphonic section legato within your Da Capo. All without loading multiple instances of the instrument in your DAW template.

Our ‘Old Paths New Discoveries’ philosophy covers this, by providing a large collection of newly recorded orchestral section samples. They have a proven sound quality within a scoring tool environment that focuses on quick access to articulations and sounds. What’s more, the sounds will interpolate instantly with your sampled or live recorded production.

  1. I’m duly impressed and the price is very appealing. The one “trick,” as always, lies in the hands of the user. I greatly enjoy using orchestral sweetening, but you can’t go full-bore unless you grasp the subtle sub-groupings that define part of the richness. I’ve seen numerous real orchestras live, so I came to understand how many things come about via 2 or 3 instruments from within 2 or 3 smaller groups making a composite tone. That’s a bit of a leap if you are used to writing things with only 4 tracks. Start at about 16 and you’re getting there. The results are worth it, but you have to pay the fare. I hope Da Capo does well, because it fits nicely between Garritan and larger tools like Vienna.
