All Good Things Come in Three (Instruments)
Drums, guitars, piano or choir – with the virtual instruments, you can easily produce your own melodies and beats or program drum loops. In addition to eight different drum machines, four virtual synths, choir, folk instruments, accordion and the Vita sampler, the instrument collection now includes three new instruments. They are the Orchestral Ensemble, Grand Piano, and Sansula. But what exactly do they do?
Orchestral Ensemble comes packed with orchestral sounds, including brass instruments and woodwinds, drums, strings and more. These are perfect for making movie soundtracks and pop songs with a touch more warmth and depth. Below are some example areas of use for these orchestral sounds:
Grand Piano is perfect for anyone looking to add beautiful piano parts to their songs. Whether for jazz, pop or hip hop, Grand Piano is the ideal instrument for experimenting with tonal textures.
You can get an idea of what this sounds like from the following demo:
Before 2011, the sansula didn’t even exist. And yet the one-of-a-kind sound of this lamellophone was reason enough for us to give it the virtual treatment. The sansula’s sound has a light, celestial and dreamy quality to it, while also giving off a joyful tone. Curious? Have a listen here to see what the sansula sounds like:
