Bass Ray5 features a Music Man Stingray 5 Bass. The first bass designed by Ernie Ball Music Man, the Stingray 5 was unveiled in 1987 and has been an industry standard for extended range basses ever since. With its powerful punchy sound, the added flexibility of additional pickups and a comfortably contoured body the Stingray 5 satisfies even the most demanding of players. The Stingray 5 was the first bass to feature active electronics and advancements such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss-rod system, and rock-solid bridge. T

Deeply sampled over 21GB uncompressed contents, over 7,600 samples, with multi velocity layers and round robin samples, Bass Ray5 aims at precisely reproducing the versatile and modern bass sound. To achieve the best possible sound, it took our team several months to prepare the sample recording. We have recorded left and right channels with different amps so this gives users more flexibility in shaping their final sound.

Bass Ray5 covers pick and lead finger playing methods. What’s more, we also sampled as much as techniques available on this Bass, including Mute, Sustain, Slides, Bend, Falls, Hammer On and Pull Off.

China Percussion is a complete collection of most Chinese percussion instruments, including BianZhong (Chinese Chime Bells), Chinese Gong, Chinese Drums, Cymbals, Qing and a percussion set for Beijing Opera.

Bianzhong is an ancient Chinese musical instrument consisting of a set of bronze bells, played melodically. China is the earliest country to manufacture and use musical chimes. They are also called Chime Bells. These sets of chime bells were used as polyphonic musical instruments and some of these bells have been dated at between 2,000 to 3,600 years old. They were hung in a wooden frame and struck with a mallet. Using a wooden hammer and a rod to beat the bronze bell can make different pitches. Along with the stone chimes called bianqing, they were an important instrument in China’s ritual and court music going back to ancient times.

In Chinese music, there are many different percussion instruments; we carefully recorded most of them, including Qing, Bo, Kuaiban, Bang, Muyu, Drums, Cymbals and Bells.

A gong is an East and Southeast Asian musical percussion instrument that takes the form of a flat, circular metal disc which is hit with a mallet.

Percussion also plays an important role in Beijing Opera so we carefully prepare a set of percussion for traditional Beijing Opera. We also recorded the real performance and made them into loops so it can be quickly used in musician’s project.

Cadenza Strings featuring Full String Section powered by the latest Neo Orchestra Hybrid Modelling Engine.

Sound Magic is proud to announce the availability of Cadenza Strings — its latest hybrid modeling virtual instrument for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit), featuring a Full String Section powered by the latest Neo Orchestra Hybrid Modelling Engine.

Cadenza Strings recorded as a full symphony string section, which features 40 players, 16 violins, 12 violas, 8 cello and 4 basses; all handpicked session musicians who appear in New York Premium recording studios. This Library features rich, open and full string sound by using the best recording gears available today including Neumann Vintage Microphones, Prism AD/DA and SSL 9000K. Cadenza Strings also includes Cadenza Violin as its First Chair Violin.

To capture the string section in great detail, Sound Magic not only uses 32Bit/192KHz to record the samples which keeps the original sound in maximum freshness and liveness, but also using different microphone perspectives that will give musicians more freedom in shaping the final sound.

It’s this sound that leads Sound Magic to expand its Modeling Legato technology to bring musicians even more creative musical freedom. It is capable of supporting any technique, patches, or articulations with more control over the parametric. This allows musicians to manipulate shapes and sound variety in real time with smoother transitions between notes than a sampled legato.

Hybrid Vibrato and Tremolo achieves more authentic sounds from sampling without sacrificing creative control. For perspective, this means starting with non-vibrato and then fading in vibrato sustain while changing depth and speed. Or, users can also change Tremolo speed in real time while optimizing control or to leverage human behaviors in the vibrato for enhanced realism in the final version.

Sound Magic have also made it possible to finish all techniques on a single track with Performance Keyswitch System that allows Cadenza Strings to be used in live performances without sacrificing quality or efficiency.

Cadenza Strings Features

  • Deeply sampled, Over 13,700 samples, 36GB uncompressed sample data
  • Full String Section with 40 players. Including 16 violins, 12 violas, 8 cello and 4 basses

  • Comprehensive Envelope system
  • Scala Tuning System can emulate different tuning systems
  • DFD/RAM system enables users to relocate resources and ensure the best performance under every individual project
  • Differnt GUI mode for standard resolution and 4K resolution

Cadenza Strings offers far more sound-shaping options than a sampling instrument with five bands parametric EQ and more control over the harmonic partial sounds. This means you can quickly change timbre with a simple turn of a knob or tune every single note with the Scala tuning system.

Pricing and Availability

Cadenza Strings has a MSRP as $499, now has introduction offer as $299 until October 10th, 2020.
