Embertone is the brainchild of Alex Davis and Jonathan Churchill, a duo focused on creating quality deeply sampled virtual instruments.
The company has got in touch with us to announce availability of Recorders — an SSATB (SOPRANINO, SOPRANO, ALTO, TENOR, and BASS) quintet of recorders recorded with an insane level of detail and supremely sampled for release as the company’s latest virtual instrument for Native Instruments’ industry-standard KONTAKT platform (version 5.3.1 or later).
In their words “it is a true thrill for Embertone to let this expressive set of sample-based virtual instruments — comprising 6,900-plus recorded samples served up in Native Instruments’ NCW (Native Compressed Wave) format (designed to save an imported .WAV audio file using compression so the file uses less disk space) as a 5.5 GB installation at 44.1 kHz/24-bit stereo sample resolution — roam wherever they please their musical masters”.
“This is a really simple instrument,” concludes company co-founder and composer Alex Davis. “It has all of our experience built into it, though. We’ve been working on it for a long time — all of the developments that we’ve made over the last five years working with instruments like this, and I’m so proud that we were able to pack all of these samples into one really beautiful, really intuitive interface where you can combine instruments if you want to. You can pan and adjust volume. We’re really inspired to finally be able to share this.”
