Alpine Volksmusik offers 24 single instruments, from Accordion to the „Zillertaler“ violin.
 This collection offers everything you need to compose music in the authentic Alpine and
Upper Carniola style. Only the best artists from this genre have been recorded for these instruments

Alpine Volksmusik is the first professional sample-library dedicated to the incredible wide field of traditional Austrian, Bavarian as well as Upper Carniolan folk and brass music. Using 24 high-quality instruments, every producer can now arrange a virtual ensemble ranging from familiar setups to a full marching band.

Alpine Volksmusik covers the whole spectrum of instruments, being necessary to produce this kind of folk music in a digital environment. Accordion, styrian harmonicas, clarinets and brass instruments are available just like guitar, bass and drums. And of course, we haven't forgotten traditional instruments like the dulcimer, the Zillertal fiddle and the alpine bells.

Hackbrett

All instruments have been recorded with full details and offer different articulations that can be keyswitched to deliver authentic sounds. Also, the clearly arranged user interface of the Engine player allows to individually adjust specific characteristics of the instruments such as release-noises for the accordion. In addition, levels, panning, legato, reverb and further functions can quickly be set here.

TenorhornAll instruments have been played by masters of the Volksmusik genre, just read the list below. These experienced musicians are not only virtuosos for the corresponding instruments; they also have a deep knowledge of getting that characteristic folkloristic sound out of them. By using this library, you may now finally benefit from these specific sounds in your productions.

Alpine Volksmusik can be used in flexible ways. Are you a singer or a soloist, wanting to arrange your own compositions? Do you need semi-playbacks for your live-performances? Do you plan to add specific sounds to your real studio-recordings? Do you need a pre-production for guest-musicians? Alpine Volksmusik covers all of this with ease. By using the outstanding instruments of this library, you will be able to compose and arrange your songs with your digital production system to your liking and in highest quality.

Alpine Volksmusik may sound traditional as well as modern. Simply choose the instruments that fit your music. Select a dulcimer and an accordion for family music or go for a small marching band from the upper Carniolan region! Are you in need for a soft sounding nylon-string guitar for a ballad or do you want modern drums, brass, vocal effects and a special synth-bass from Zillertal? Alpine Volksmusik will deliver it all! Naturally, you may complete this library with other instruments to create party-music, cover-versions and Après-Ski-tunes with authentic folkloristic sounds.

Alpenglocken

Whenever cheerful brass instruments, vivid accordions and nice-sounding acoustic guitars are needed, Alpine Volksmusik will offer you a perfect choice of instruments.

Fazit

Das Ziel, ein vor Livepublikum brauchbares akustisches Playback zu produzieren kann man mit dem Plugin Alpine Volksmusik erreichen. Man ist damit nicht so flexibel, wie mit einem an das Alleinunterhalter-Keyboard angeschlossenen Soundmodul, das man immer noch in der Geschwindigkeit anpassen oder Spuren ein- oder ausblenden kann. Mit entsprechender Vorbereitung und abspeichern von Alternativen lässt sich auch das halbwegs ausgleichen.

Für die Studioproduktion des nächsten Volksmusik-Hits reicht die Klangqualität und die Flexibilität der Instrumente wohl nicht aus. Je nach Stück, mit einem guten Toningenieur an der Hand vielleicht aber schon. Wenn man die hier gebotene Qualität, was die Anzahl der Artikulationen und die des Klangs an sich betrifft steigern will gibt es im mittleren Preisbereich bei Blasinstrumenten nicht so viele Alternativen. Solo-Bläser leiden ja schon immer unter dem Problem, dass sie mit traditionellen Methoden des Samplings nicht angemessen expressiv und natürlich wiederzugeben sind, sondern immer etwas zu steif und unflexibel erscheinen.
Wirklich einen großen Schritt weiter gekommen sind abseits der Solo-Bläser der großen und teuren klassischen Orchesterbibliotheken, deren grundsätzlicher Klang und Dynamik hier eher nicht passt in meiner Wahrnehmung nur zwei Firmen: Sample Modeling und Wallander Instruments. Sie schaffen es aber nur mit semi-physikalischem Modeling oder bei Wallander mit reinem physikalischen Modeling sehr Ausdrucksstarke und differenziert spielbare Instrumente zu programmieren. Das hat aber seinen Preis, alle fünf Blasinstrumente würden von diesen Firmen zusammen ca. 1500 Euro kosten. Dazu käme noch ein Dulcimer, ein Akkordeon usw.

Angesichts dessen ist Alpine Volksmusik eine genau auf das Einsatzgebiet zugeschnittene verhältnismäßig günstige Instrumentensammlung, die ihren Zweck innerhalb der gegebenen Grenzen gut erfüllt.

+ Erste Instrumentensammlung, die auf die Produktion von Volksmusik abgestimmt ist.

+ Übersichtliche Bedienung

+ Braucht verhältnismäßig wenig Speicherplatz und RAM

– Wenige Artikulationen

– Die Artikulationen sind teils etwas unterschiedlich in der Lautstärke

– Einstellmöglichkeiten der Klänge für heutige Standards eher rudimentär

excerpt

In General

I know I mentioned a few less than favorable things during the review, but still there is more than enough quality material that can liven up this genre. Actually, count this investment as buying some essential instruments for this specific genre that cannot be found anywhere else. At least those instruments are on such a solid level that with some third party solo instruments, you could easily recreate an Alpine Volksmusik arrangement that will be far away from some general MIDI recreations, sounding as authentic and realistic as sampled music today can sound.

As Ive made clear, Im not big fan of such music, but last week while driving my car and listening to local radio, I thought that some songs are not so complicated and could easily be recreated with virtual instruments. All you need is one good clarinet or flute (thanks Chris Hein for those), a good accordion, Bass Trombone, Staccato Tuba, Bass guitar and some acoustic guitar chords along with a good drum kit – all presented in this library. I dont know … maybe, maybe … actually, never say never.

Auszug/Fazit

„Alpine Volksmusik? punktet mit genretypischen Instrumenten in guter Qualität. Die Patches klingen hochwertig und lassen sich per Key-Switches authentisch spielen. Die Bedienung ist übersichtlich, bei nur sieben Parametern allerdings auch kein großes Kunststück.

Wow! Finally a sample library for those that love Slovenian/Oberkrain music! Bravo! Na Zdravje! Prosit! Can't wait to dig in and see what these sounds can do. Suggestion: When will there be a Croatian Tamburitza sample library?
