Inspired by film and classical music icons this collection pushes the boundaries of traditional sampling methods by introducing revolutionary features like Auto Divisi combined with Polyphonic True Legato from the Next Generation Choir Series and a Thematic Approach towards playing techniques. Capturing conducted musical samples as opposed to static generic samples Afflatus Chapter I features several custom-made articulation groups able to portray one specific style per group with ease. This approach grants the user highly specialized and inspiring virtual instruments able to perform music with virtuosity: Gone are the days of soulless samples.

The styles/moods featured in Afflatus Chapter I range from classical to modern contemporary film scores. Some of the masters which inspired the developement of this collection are Henry Mancini, Sergei Prokofiev, Bernard Herrmann, John Williams and Arvo Pärt. Here is an out of the box demonstration of the Scene d' Amour Section depicting the thematic approach combined with Polyphonic True Legato.

The sounds and styles presented in Afflatus are vast in terms of colours and playing techniques. From modern minimalist to golden age and lush epic string ensembles - it's all inside just one collection, which makes Afflatus a great extension to other string libraries covering the bread and butter articulations as well. Here's a live playthrough of the Minimalist String Section.

While other libraries recorded divisi sections before, Afflatus gives you total control over the sections while performing your music. Pressing the sustain pedal controls whether polyphonic lines should be played in divisi for an ultra realistic concert sound or with the whole section to achieve a thick lush tone suitable for modern film scores, TV and videogames alike. In combination with intelligent voice leading derived from the Polyphonic True Legato engine used in Freyja, Wotan, Árva and Rhodope, it is now easier than ever before to make string arrangements sound the way you want them to within your DAW.

Thanks a lot, now the real question is what should I delete to make room for this ?
Maybe time for a new hard drive
  Member 25.07.2015 75
you could start with some old strings - these sound pretty good and much easier to use
  Member 19.10.2018 154
like old 8dio strings?
  Member 22.10.2018 143
When you will have new drive you will need another one in time. Be cruel and delete unnecessary stuff cause you can download again. Other hand i didnt try this one yet but i dont like much Strezov products, Spitfire and Orchestral Tools are better.

Fun fact - You will not use most of the stuff You have on the HD. Sometimes less is more. It's pretty smart to limit the amount of tools You use and get good effects with them, than own millions of libraries and play with them without having any result at the end of the day :)
