Clare Solo was recorded in a world class studio using handmade Cloud JRS-34 ribbon mics, running through a top of the line Millenia preamp and Aurora AD converter.
The library features “comprehensive legato”, meaning that every legato transition was recorded leading into a full sustain. The end result is a natural sounding, responsive legato that is a joy to play. Clare Solo is works equally well in simple, haunting melodies, or layered to create a small ensemble.
Advanced scripting with comprehensive legato
Advanced scripting allows for control of dynamics, legato switching, and the built in convolution reverb, and includes advanced options for tweaking legato and release sample parameters.
Most libraries with legato sampling use short, separately recorded transition samples. All legato samples in Clare Solo lead into a full length sustain, resulting in a beautiful, natural performance that is unmatched by most commercial libraries.
