Hyperion Strings Micro is our introductory orchestral string library for Native Instruments’ free Kontakt Player, Komplete Kontrol and S-Series Keyboards. This library is the perfect starter pack for songwriters and musicians just getting into orchestral writing, as well as seasoned composers wanting new colors in their orchestral palette. No matter what your creative needs are, you’ll discover the powerful toolset and outstanding audio quality that you’re looking for in this convenient and extraordinarily flexible virtual instrument library.
This library has a forward and robust sound unlike any other. We recorded our string ensemble sections up close on a dry sound-stage — the historic Studio A at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA — and then equipped the interface with plenty of spatialization, environment simulation and positioning controls and options to let you dial in the sound and character you need. It’s perfect for any musical style from rock, pop and EDM, to fully orchestral compositions. The interface is detailed, configurable and feature-rich to allow total customization. However, for all of the bells and whistles we’ve designed into Hyperion Micro, we’ve carefully refined every feature to be intuitive and naturally simple to use, with virtually no learning curve.
Hyperion Strings Micro includes a combined full ensemble preset, as well as 4 main section presets for our 8 Violins, 6 Violas, 5 Cellos and 4 Double Basses. For this Micro Edition, we’ve included the most essential core articulations for each section: multi-dynamic sustains both with and without natural vibrato, staccatos, spiccatos and pizzicatos, as well as two basic dynamic expressions: long crescendos and decrescendos.
The multi-dynamic sustain, staccato, spiccato and pizzicato articulations allow smooth crossfading across dynamic layers, from piano to forte with the Swell control. In addition to dynamic layering, you can also choose rich, natural vibrato or clean non-vibrato sustain types or seamlessly blend between them with the sustain blend control. You can also instantly switch the staccatos, spiccatos and pizzicatos to velocity sensitivity mode and control dynamics directly as you play. The pizzicatos also allow manual or automatic switching between naturally loose flams and precise tight plucks that adapt to your speed. Each of these short articulation types also features two “round-robin” variations per note. The Crescendo and Decrescendo expressions allow real-time dynamically-aware release sample triggering, tempo-synching and time-stretching. These are a great introduction to our broader “Expressions” concept for modular arrangement.
Class A Samples are back with epic sample collection “Mainstage Techno”. Inspired by sound of Toolroom, 1605, Drumcode, Soma, Saura and artists like Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Cirez D, Koen Groeneveld, Spartaque, Alan Fitzpatrick, Umek, Spektre, Marco Bailey, Pig & Dan and more.
