Audio Impressions (http://www.audioimpressions.com) has released
version 2.0 of DVZ Strings, the virtual-instrument strings library
that comes with the company’s patented Divisi technology that
delivers real-time section balances.
DVZ Strings now use Ai’s proprietary software that enables Mac and PC
computers to work together and eliminates the need of additional D/A
converters by routing the sampler’s outputs into the host computer
for improved the lowest latency with less hardware. Also improved is
the workflow. DVZ stems can be viewed on separate MIDI tracks with
real-time editing for as many as five sections at a time with
independent articulations and playing styles, without ever having to
load additional samples; the entire library is loaded at start-up.
Individual stereo outputs for each string section with DVZ stems can
be viewed on separate MIDI tracks with real-time editing for as many
as five sections at a time. There’s a two-octave KBD controller
The strings are completely re-mastered in DVZ Strings 2.0, and key
switches have been added for changing styles on the fly via MIDI
Continuous Controller messages that can be edited directly on your
sequencer MIDI tracks. Included is Space, a DSP process that
transforms individually recorded instruments into a single live
performance and a virtual sound-stage that lets you position the
various players anywhere on it.
DVS Strings 2.0 also comes with AudioPort, a Mac and PC compatible
high-quality digital audio over LAN. You’ll have to contact Audio
Impressions for pricing.
