Hey folks, we've just released a brand new update to Requiem Light, bringing it up to version 2.5 for both the Player Edition
and Standard Format
versions. The update is free to all existing Requiem Light owners, so just let us know if you didn't get the update email.
We've added tempo-synching and time-stretching presets to all poly-sustains, soloists and choral effects with the help of Kontakt 5's new Time Machine Pro engine. This upgraded time-stretching system allows much more realistic and fluid sample stretching and tempo-synching, with fewer artifacts at a wider range of tempos. We've also added crossfade controls to the tempo-synched poly-sustains, allowing more fluid legato note transitions within the Latin phrases. In all, we've added 18 brand new presets to the library, each with expanded key range mapping and other fine adjustments in addition to the new tempo-synching/speed control features.
We originally waited to add these upgrades due to fidelity limitations in the TM2 engine and the complex K5-specific scripting that was required to allow poly-sustian tempo-synching without breaking the polyphonic legato synchronization. This means you can play through the syllables of a chant while changing notes at any bpm, with up to 3 independent harmonies.
You'll need Kontakt 5.0.2 to use the new presets, but everything else is still K4.2.4 compatible. If you don't have Kontakt 5 yet, we recommend going with the Player Edition, since it works with the free Kontakt 5 Player and includes the official Native Instruments cross-grade deal to upgrade to the latest full version of Kontakt at a reduced price.
We're also offering $25 off both versions through May 14th. The Standard Format
version is only $324 and the Player Edition
is only $350.
