KONTAKT Update ONLY- 16,95 GB
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.

Improved playability on legato patches - Minimalist series, Scene d'amour series.

Built-in mixer for all combined and some experimental patches (everything that was not recorded as an ensemble)

Velocity Dynamic Influencer
Enhance your polyphonic true legato playing with the Velocity Dynamic Influencer - get up to +/- 6db of volume for a single note depending on its velocity (64 velocity being the default value).

Portamento available for First Chair strings (with the exception of the Bass principal) - you can adjust the velocity that triggers the portamento interval.

  Resident 30.01.2014 7 1215
17 gigs just for the update to 1.2? What?

Usually updates aren't of these proportions. I won't complain. :)

Thank you very much, TaLuLa!!

I read that there are new patches, look at the description, it doesn't seem just a bugfix update.
  Resident 30.01.2014 7 1215
Yeah, I saw that. :)

Most devs would make an add-on library out of this. Or maybe several. Sold seperately.

Is this a free update for paying users?
  Member 24.01.2016 99

This update officially came out on Wednesday (only 2 days ago).. you're starting to build a mythical aura about you Talula. Thank you.
  Member 1.12.2018 10
Thanks, Talula!!!
  Member 26.05.2012 12 1086

It is now the biggest library I own and it's just a strings library!! That legato scripting and included articulations are enormous!!

Anyone else having issues batch resaving? Tried several times, it's crashing Kontakt on random patches...

Can someone please test? I'm on 6.1
  Resident 16.11.2013 3 382
Yup.... have the same problem here....
  Resident 26.07.2014 24 302
Thanks bro
I'm "glad" it's not here only... Are you on 6.1 too?
  Resident 16.11.2013 3 382
Yup... 6.1
  Resident 26.07.2014 24 302
I was able to batch resave with 5.7.3
K6.1 and Afflatus 1.2 don't like each other
  Resident 1.02.2017 374
Guys! Try with 6.1.1 that just came out today here. I'm curious if it solves this issue or not.
  Releaser 22.10.2007 812 346
from update instruction:
"as strange as this request may seem, please navigate to the folder currently containing your AFFLATUS Chapter I Strings library and completely remove your "Instruments" subfolder"
after this copy folder "Instruments" from update and replace old *.nicht.
did you do everything that way?

  Resident 26.07.2014 24 302
Yes, exactly like the instructions... still crashing
Are you able to batch resave 1.2?
