Soundiron Hyperion Strings Elements -
Strings Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Player
Hyperion Strings Elements is a universal string ensemble library built for everyone. It was recorded with uncompromising engineering precision and then hand-edited and carefully balanced to achieve a new benchmark in quality and playability. It's made for Native Instruments’ free Kontakt Player and the NKS Standard. This virtual instrument is a robust musical production workhorse that will serve you well, whether you’re a working composer, student, producer, songwriter, teacher, arranger, band, sound designer, or are just curious about creating your own music. It’s ready to perform from the moment you load it up.
The Hyperion String ensemble has a forward and robust sound unlike any other. It has a strong tone and wide dynamic range that can be shaped to fit any genre or style. It can also be used to fatten and layer with other strings to create massive arrangements. We’ve also 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.
The library includes a full-ensemble preset and 4 Master and True-Legato section presets for 8 Violins, 6 Violas, 5 Cellos, and 4 Double Basses. The Master presets include a broad selection of fundamental articulations, each with their own range of customizable real-time performance options, key-switch and mapping options, handy auto-functions, arpeggiators, FX and performance tools. These master presets allow you to blend and switch effortlessly vibrato, non-vibrato and tremolo sustains, a variety of short bow strokes and naturally dynamic tempo-based expressions, effects, rhythmic patterns, runs, and sequences.
This library has been licensed for use in the free Kontakt Player virtual instrument engine. It can be used in Kontakt Player or the full retail version of Kontakt (version 6.0.1 or later) for VST, AU or AAX instrument plugin formats. You can add this product to the Kontakt “Libraries” browser. It requires online serial number registration through the Native Instruments Native Access system. This library is also fully compatible with Komplete Kontrol and all NKS Standard hardware and software by Native Instruments. Purchasing this library qualifies you for a great cross-grade discount toward the full unlocked version of Kontakt through Native Instruments!
ContentsHyperion Strings Elements includes a combined full ensemble preset, as well as individual section master and true legato presets for our chamber string orchestra, with 8 Violins, 6 Violas, 5 Cellos, and 4 Double Basses. For this Elements Edition, each section is fully equipped with fingered and gliss true legato for vibrato and non-vibrato sustains, tremolo, a full spectrum of short note speeds/styles, and an extended catalog of modular dynamic expressions like crescendos, decrescendos, sforzandos, and swells.
The True Legato presets weave together multi-dynamic lush vibrato and clean non-vibrato, recorded naturally in piano, mezzo-forte and forte dynamics. You can switch instantly between agile fingered and smooth glissando legato transition styles for vibrato and non-vibrato sustains, with speed control that adapts to the way you play when you want it to, yet gives you total hands-on control when you need it. You can use it to craft startlingly realistic and seamless performances, whether you’re playing quick slurred runs or long, silky-smooth melodies.
The Short articulations make it easy to humanize your arrangements and find the perfect bow stroke or emotive expression for any musical moment. You can switch instantly between long & dotted 8th-note staccatos, 16th & 32nd-note short staccatos, 32nd & 64th-note spiccatos, as well as loose & tight pizzicatos, Bartok pitz snaps and Col Legno taps. They include 4 round-robins per note, with optional velocity/swell control and automatic time-based switching for refined realism and control.
The modular dynamic Expressions allow real-time dynamically-aware release sample triggering, tempo-synching and time-stretching. When combined with the Offset and Attack controls, you can carve out just about any dynamic shape you could ever need.
The library includes a broad selection of flexible articulations, each with their own range of customizable real-time performance options, key-switch, and mapping options and performance tools. It is fully equipped for the professional composer with time-saving performance tools, adaptive controls, sound-shaping, and positioning features and an incredibly rich and robust sound.
