Heavyocity Media NOVO Modern Strings KONTAKT
Recorded at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. Studios, NOVO is a deeply-sampled orchestral strings instrument. Beyond the almost 40GB of production-ready sound-designed string samples, NOVO enables composers to "tweak, process, layer, and sequence like no strings virtual instrument ever has before", say Heavyocity.
Featuring over 21,000 samples, 300+ Kontakt Snapshots, and 400+ loops, NOVO is not just another strings VI. First, it's an organic Strings Ensemble instrument. Then there's a Hybrid Cinematic instrument sourced from those string samples. And finally, there's an added Loop Designer for instant inspiration.
With NOVO, Heavyocity also introduces the new CYCLE engine. The product of years of in-house development, CYCLE boasts a set of controls that can quickly create rhythmic pulses, swells, stutters, and glitch effects, as well as effectual granular-style pads for ambient drones and textures. Add subtle motion to a sustained pad, chain together long, evolving sequences, or completely transform a sound into glitchy mayhem. With independent controls over start, rate, and sample length -- CYCLE offers vast sound design and sample layering capability.
As a "powered-by-Kontakt" instrument, NOVO offers all playback and sound shaping functionality through the full version of Kontakt or the free Kontakt 5 Player.
With NOVO Modern Strings, Heavyocity had a vision: to give composers a toolkit with a potent fusion of deeply sampled orchestral strings and the company's superior trademark sound design. Recorded on the historic Eastwood Scoring Stage on Warner Brothers Studios' Burbank lot, NOVO goes way beyond what conventional orchestral virtual instruments offer, with a massive collection of endlessly tweakable sound-designed string samples and the ability to sequence, layer, and process them like never before. Used traditionally, you draw on the core of Modern Strings: a 50-piece string orchestra; violin, viola, cello, and bass ensembles, recorded to perfection. When you're ready to push the envelope, NOVO takes your orchestrations to the next level with the advanced hybrid cinematic elements you've heard on blockbuster film scores by top Hollywood composers like Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer. However you use it, Heavyocity NOVO Modern Strings will have you running up the score right out of the box.
Inspiring, fast, and powerful
NOVO's vast library sounds awesome right out of the box, but when you're ready to roll up your sleeves and dive in deep, you're in for a treat. The productivity-enhancing interface is delightful and quick to navigate. Under the hood, Heavyocity's CYCLE dynamic playback engine enables a control set that lets you quickly craft swells, rhythmic pulses, stutters, and glitch effects, as well as granular pads for ambient drones and textures. CYCLE can add a sense of motion to a sustained pad, or completely transform a patch into glitchy pandemonium. You can even fashion long, evolving sequences by chaining up to eight patterns. Take it from Sweetwater: NOVO offers massive sound-design potential.
The all-powerful Macro Control
The secret to NOVO's potent sound-shaping capabilities is Macro Control, the prominent control knob for the String Designer and Loop Designer modules. You can assign it to control multiple parameters across each channel, including volume, pan, equalization, envelope, and various effects. Use the Macro sequencer to program swells, stutters, and sequenced effects for delicately evolving timbres or frenzied modulation. The presets come with their own unique sets of Macro knob assignments, so you can quickly tweak each sound to perfection.
