Here comes first impro demo with my freshly sampled and patched Ibanez classical guitar:

Classical Guitar 3Vel RR3
An acoustic classical guitar (nylon strings) sampled between E1-A#4 at every minor third with 3x round robin and 3 velocity layers. In the lowest octave the 3rd velocity layer uses rattling string, a sound which can't be achieved in the higher ranges. In addition to the regular L-C-R micophone setup a DI-boxed pickup signal was mixed in, all signals were phase-aligned.

Playing the impro in a first pass also using Aftertouch for small glissandi and vibrati, then tweaking some of the controls in the script in a second pass (Chorus depth/mix, reverb stuff, velocity to LP filter cutoff, adding a koto-like gliss with an envelope sometimes), so this patch has a scripted interface.

The cello plays up to C3, then the violin takes over up to C5, all thirds (sometimes minor, sometimes major) were sampled. Sample start can be randomized with the Modwheel (up to 50%) or you can set sample start with a controller. Lot's of filtering and FX options/sounds are available.

This patch now has a scripted interface, demonstrated in this video:

Here comes a fresh demo for Ambient Strings, the main patch in the demo being Psaltery Rain Split:

Description (only some of the assigned Macros are mentioned):
A long soundscape derived from a falling, timestretched psaltery glissando (in major) split up into three segments split across the keyboard with overlapping keyzones (between G#2-C3 and G#3-C4), in the lowest region another resynthesized psaltery drone is layerd with the other sound. In a second layer an analog stack synth with temposynced falling microtonal glissandi processed by a tuned combfilter is playing, control the synth volume with Macro 3, the rain speed with M4. M1+2 add temposynced filter- and amplitude modulation, M7 switches the multiband compressor in the FX section on/off. The Modwheel adds temposynced square-shaped pich modulation to the soundscape layer, max +2 semitones with MW fully engaged.

It's lovely, MachFive has so many tools to create all those sounds in one single patch

then there is a snapshot from the classical guitar patch playing ( which now has a scripted interface) and another patch with regular psaltery glissandos, where you have 2 variations each of slow/fast gliss split across the keyboard (one octave each) and can switch between up/down gliss, and major/pentatonic. There is also a granular gliss patch which gives you speed control over the gliss speed and many other things.

Release is scheduled for Nov 17th.

Two fresh patches from Ambient Strings derived from bowed psaltery sounds/phrases are used in this demo:

one of them has a scripted interface, as soon as the scripter has implemented the snapshots, I'll make a video with it and post a detailed description. The psaltery is such an incredible instrument, lovely.

Spent the whole day polishing patches, the end of the tunnel is visible, I think this library will be of one of my own favourites.
