CineWinds PRO is the expansion to the next-generation orchestral CineWinds CORE library. CineWinds PRO expansion fills out the remainder of the orchestral woodwind section, and also offers an eclectic choice of ethnic, Renaissance, and period wind instruments most often used in film scoring.
As with CineWinds CORE, we assembled a team of the finest musicians and crew — we found great comfort and amazing sounds at the SONY Scoring Stage, recorded and mixed by the unparalleled engineer Dennis Sands. The woodwinds in CineWinds PRO are covered with the same depth and nuance as the instruments in CineWinds CORE, and William Lyons gives us a series of ethnic woodwinds of such expressiveness and detail rarely heard in orchestral sample libraries. The PRO expansion features twice the content of the CORE library, and we hope you enjoy every bit of it.
WHAT'S NEW IN THE CINEWINDS PRO 1.3 UPDATE:
CINESAMPLES' ADAPTIVE LEGATO ENGINE
Cinesamples applied its Adaptive Legato Engine from CineStrings SOLO, Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato, and Viola da Gamba to the orchestral instruments in CineWinds PRO. It allows you to tailor the legato response to your own playing style, and is designed to respond musically to your performance. The engine detects your playing speed and intelligently adjusts the interval speed to match. This means you can play slow, expressive lines and fast runs in a single performance, without touching the speed dial. Additionally, the intensity parameter responds to velocity.
In the Settings Tab, the VOLUME RANGE controls how much the volume is affected by CC1. So those who use CC1 and CC11 together can keep the slider all the way down, and those who only use the mod wheel can turn it up.
Using the VEL / ATTACK function, the attack of each note responds to your velocity. Lower velocities will generate a slower attack.
QUANTIZE MODE: In any True Legato instrument, there will be some lag when playing note-to-note transitions. This is usually compensated for by moving all notes slightly to the left in the sequencer, or by using a track pre-delay. The problem with most legato libraries is that the timings of each note are inconsistent; the first note in a phrase will sound immediately, while subsequent notes will be delayed. The Quantize Mode tackles this problem by calculating the legato lag time, and applying the same delay to non-legato samples. This means you can quantize a performance, shift the MIDI to the left, and the timings of each note will be consistent.
NEW MAPPING TAB
CineWinds PRO includes a brand new mapping area styled after CineStrings SOLO that allows for greater flexibility in customizing composer workflows.
The Accent Overlay control layers an additional articulation (Marcato = Short 1/2, Staccato = Short 1/4, Spiccato = Short 1/8) over the attack of sustains. Turning on ACCENTED LEGATO adds this layer to the legato transitions.
NEW VIBRATO CONTROL
In the Mapping tab, the Vibrato fader allows for a variable crossfade speed into and out of vibrato samples. This control defaults to CC2 but can be assigned to any controller.
The new Ensemble Patch includes the Alto Flute, English Horn, Bass Clarinet, and Contrabassoon.
CineWinds PRO is comprised of entirely new orchestral woodwind sample content, and as with CineWinds CORE, it was proudly recorded at the SONY Scoring Stage and mixed by Dennis Sands. CineWinds CORE contains the standard orchestral woodwinds — piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon. For CineWinds PRO, we went beyond the essentials to bring you exceptional instruments, such as the alto flute and contrabassoon, as well as a comprehensive selection of ethnic woodwind instruments, performed by expert William Lyons, who sampled the exact instruments he played in many film scores, including The Hobbit by director Peter Jackson.
