Fable Sounds Broadway Big Band v2.0.24 KONTAKT (UPDATE)
Delivering supreme content and groundbreaking technological innovation we are proud to bring you Broadway Big Band – Kontakt Edition, a whopping 120 Gigabyte Virtual Instrument by Fable Sounds. Broadway Big Band – Kontakt Edition puts the most detailed, realistic, versatile, and playable, character filled wind & rhythm section instruments at your fingertips. Broadway Big Band is an indispensable tool for creating Jazz, Funk, Pop, Blues, R&B, Latin, Hip-Hop, and much more.The Broadway Performer™ technology is a Patented* MIDI Processing System developed especially for the Broadway Big Band™ products. It enables the most comprehensive and intuitive access to the thousands of samples included in the Broadway Big Band™ virtual instruments, granting both the creative freedom and the fullest control over the finest nuances of performance, all in real-time but fully editable in step-mode as well. It chooses the pre-recorded note transitions based on context, and provides instant access to a virtually limitless variety of articulations and playing techniques.
This is acheived by a combination of several powerful concepts: Multi-dimentional key-switching, Bi-Directional key-switches, shift & option keys, and active key-switch behaviour.
Furthermore, Broadway performer introduces an advanced and unique way of managing alternate samples, modulation-wheel data-morphing, actively changing the articulation of an already played note, and more…
To enable composers, producers and arrangers to achieve real sounding organic Brass & Woodwind sound in a non-orchestral setting. The Broadway Big Band™ combines technological innovation and exceptional musicians in creating the most detailed, flexible and intuitive non-orchestral multi-sample library, and it’s doing so in the form of a revolutionary virtual instrument.
Multiple Microphone Setups
The need to have the artistic and technical flexibility in placing your instruments in an appropriate environment is also a key factor in our vision. The instruments were thus sampled with multiple microphone positions, using different microphone types, pre-amps and recording styles, allowing the user to mic the instrument according to the production needs, just as they would if they were recording a live musician.
The necessity of having performers that bring the spirit of their “own” sound without being overbearing was one of the most important aspects of this project. The objective was maximizing the usability and flexibility, and keeping the performance of the recorded sound-samples breathing and full of life. Hence, the virtual instruments of the Broadway Big Band™ were recorded with world-class leading New-York musicians, who have been carefully chosen for the character in their musical performance and for their musical versatility.
NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 2
REAL-TIME ORCHESTRATOR (RTO)
A groundbreaking feature enabling polyphonic, poly-rhythmic legato across a mixed section of instruments. Using RTO you can play an entire section on the keyboard, and the notes you play are orchestrated in real time and distributed to the various instruments in the RTO multi, based on orchestration schemes that you can create yourself. This is an extremely powerful system which is extremely easy to use. Great for live shows, as well as tracking under tight deadlines. It also offers articulation presets which can replace the built-in key-switching with alternative midi triggers such as foot-switches, freeing your left hand for playing notes rather than key-switches.
From now on, you can use any of the Broadway Big Band wind instruments multiple times in the arrangement or in a multi, even when playing unison, creating a realistic section of multiple instruments. This means that even with multiple instances of just one instrument, you can still get a realistic section of multiple instruments playing in unison. The feature is not some kind of a doubling effect, but rather it uses different samples, and performs slight adjustments to make sure each instance of the instrument sounds a little different from the other. The results are very realistic. The feature also includes “Humanize” and “Detune” knobs for further control over the section sound.
NOTATION SOFTWARE SUPPORT
With version 2.0, “Notation mode” has been added to all of the Broadway Big Band instruments, to enable notation programs to communicate with Broadway Big Band and use it for playback of scores, including all included articulations and dynamics. The new Notation mode also enables integration with Cubase Expression maps. This was not previously possible due to the unique articulation switching system in Broadway Big Band. The new Notation Mode uses an alternative system of key-switching that is more in line with the way notation programs operate.
VELOCITY CURVE CONTROL
Due to the extended dynamic range of the wind instruments included in Broadway Big Band, it is sometimes difficult to keep dynamics under control when using a MIDI keyboard’s velocity. To help overcome this, we’ve added a new knob to control the velocity curve, which helps adjusting the responsiveness of the Broadway Big Band instruments to various MIDI keyboards. The new velocity curve control feature can also be MIDI automated to make changes within a song as needed.
A NEW ARTICULATION ADDED TO TENOR SAXOPHONE 1
FP+Vibrato, Added both as a temporary articulation and in combination with the existing “Strong Vibrato” articulation, as a new “Deep Vibrato” playing mode.
VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS IN PROGRAMMING AND UI
Improved consistency of levels and envelope programming and a new and improved user interface.
