Komplett abgesampelte Big Band mit Bläsern & Drums

Broadway Big Band bietet eine komplett gesamplete Bigband, man kann die Saxophone tatsächlich im Vordergrund platzieren ohne das Gefühl haben zu müssen, dass "da was nicht stimmt". BigBand-Feeling PUR! Von den Bläsern über die Drums bis hin zu den wichtigen Percussion-Instrumenten ist alles vorhanden.

Bislang war es sehr schwierig, realistisch klingende Übergänge von einem Ton zum nächsten zu erzielen. So wurde das technisch Machbare ausgereizt und alle wichtigen Notenverbindungen wurden in einer Spanne von 14 Halbtönen nach oben und nach unten aufgenommen. Somit sind Legato, Rip Portamento und Chromatische Läufe realistischer denn je. Der Player kümmert sich um das Technische. Sie müssen nur noch spielen.

Version 2.0 wurde um eine Unison Section, einen Real-Time Orchestrator sowie Notations Software Support erweitert ,desweiteren wurde das Tenor Saxophone 1 um eine Artikulation Erweitert.

Dank des Unison Section Features können mehrere Instanzen des Instruments "gestapelt" werden, womit die Horn-Section erweitert wird und so einen breiteren Klang liefert. Der revolutionäre Real-Time Orchestrator ermöglicht das spielen einer voll orchestrierten Mixed Section mit nur einem Keyboard, das bedeutet polyphon-polyrhythmisches Legato, verteilt auf die Instrumente, wie Sie es wollen.

Broadway Big Band läßt sich nicht nur auf BigBand beschränken. Es lassen sich auch schöne  Pop, Funk, Rock, Jazz, Latin, R&B, Hip-Hop oder Blues-Arrangements damit erstellen.

Broadway Big Band 2.0 GUI Screen

Feature Highlights

  • Ultimate Playability - Fable Sounds have developed and patented a unique and intuitive articulation switching system that enables real-time access to all of the articulations of an instrument from a single patch. You can finally play a deeply sampled virtual instrument with the same creative freedom and fluidity as the musician playing the actual instrument would.

  • Deeply sampled - An insane amount of articulations and playing techniques, providing endless possibilities and unmatched level of expressiveness.

  • Legato sampling - Legato intervals recorded up to major 9th up and down in various legato interval articulations providing unmatched realism.

  • Massive amount of content - 100GB of audio content, recorded at 24bit/44.1khz, 140,000+ individual samples.

  • Meticulously recorded and processed - Recorded in one of New York’s best live rooms, using top quality microphones and pre-amps and carefully processed to a virtually noiseless recording, that still breathes naturally.

  • Groundbreaking Technology - Whether it’s our patented articulation switching system, or our MIDI Data Morphing concept, our patented, lifelike, chaos-creating alternate samples management system, the musically liberating Unison Section feature, or our new, unique and powerful Real-Time Orchestrator, Fable Sounds always keeps you on the cutting edge of technology.

  • Multiple microphone setups - Sonic flexibility that would make the Broadway Big Band instruments easily fit right into the mix, whatever the genre or style of production may be.

  • Powerful and simple - Broadway Big Band offers incredibly powerful yet simple to learn and use features, not offered by any other virtual instruments currently on the market. See the features section for details.

  • Top New York musicians - It sounds right and feels right because it was played right, by accomplished New York Jazz, salsa, pop & Funk musicians. It’s the real deal from top to bottom.

New features in version 2.0

Broadway GIG Realtime Orchestrator GUI

Real-Time Orchestrator (RTO)

A groundbreaking feature enabling polyphonic, poly-rhythmic legato across a mixed section of instruments. Using RTO you can play an entire section on the keyboard, and the notes you play are orchestrated in real time and distributed to the various instruments in the RTO multi, based on orchestration schemes that you can create yourself. This is an extremely powerful system which is extremely easy to use. Great for live shows, as well as tracking under tight deadlines. It also offers articulation presets which can replace the built-in key-switching with alternative midi triggers such as foot-switches, freeing your left hand for playing notes rather than key-switches.

Unison Section

From now on, you can use any of the Broadway Big Band wind instruments multiple times in the arrangement or in a multi, even when playing unison, creating a realistic section of multiple instruments. This means that even with multiple instances of just one instrument, you can still get a realistic section of multiple instruments playing in unison. The feature is not some kind of a doubling effect, but rather it uses different samples, and performs slight adjustments to make sure each instance of the instrument sounds a little different from the other. The results are very realistic. The feature also includes “Humanize” and “Detune” knobs for further control over the section sound.

Notation Software Support

With version 2.0, “Notation mode” has been added to all of the Broadway Big Band instruments, to enable notation programs to communicate with Broadway Big Band and use it for playback of scores, including all included articulations and dynamics. The new Notation mode also enables integration with Cubase Expression maps. This was not previously possible due to the unique articulation switching system in Broadway Big Band. The new Notation Mode uses an alternative system of key-switching that is more in line with the way notation programs operate. (full documentation in the user manual).

Velocity curve control

Due to the extended dynamic range of the wind instruments included in Broadway Big Band, it is sometimes difficult to keep dynamics under control when using a MIDI keyboard’s velocity. To help overcome this, we’ve added a new knob to control the velocity curve, which helps adjusting the responsiveness of the Broadway Big Band instruments to various MIDI keyboards. The new velocity curve control feature can also be MIDI automated to make changes within a song as needed.

A new articulation added to Tenor Saxophone 1

FP+Vibrato, Added both as a temporary articulation and in combination with the existing “Strong Vibrato” articulation, as a new “Deep Vibrato” playing mode.

Various improvements in programming and UI

Improved consistency of levels and envelope programming and a new and improved user interface.

  • Real-Time Orchestrator – a revolutionary powerful feature which enables a keyboard player to play an entire mixed section of instruments with polyphonic polyrhythmic legato, distributing the voices to the selected instruments, as defined in a user editable orchestration scheme. Multiple orchestration schemes are possible within a single RTO multi, switchable in real-time via mouse click or user defined midi triggers.
  • Includes a set of powerful instruments multis for easy section playing (both regular stacked multis and RTO multis).
  • Revolutionary and patented alternate samples handling (round-robin), including an individual cycle for each note in each dynamic level of each articulation, resulting in up to hundreds of individual cycles per instrument, providing the most authentic performance ever offered by a multi-sample library or a virtual instrument.
  • Create and recall snapshots of alternate cycles to lock performance and gain ultimate control.
  • Dump & Reload articulations of instruments right from the interface, to optimize memory usage.

"I find Broadway Big Band to be revolutionary! actually helps me write better. I feel like I’m playing a live instrument. It makes it more fun. I feel less like I’m working and more like I’m making music. There are other libraries out there that do true legato, that do different articulations, but… I haven’t heard articulations and samples connect this way. It’s just seamless. However these guys are doing it, it’s different than anything else that I’ve heard and it’s definitely different than anything else I have played with.”

"The sound, the concept, the whole approach to what they’re doing with the Broadway Big Band is something new in sampling, and something I think that’s going to really change the sampling world."
