Quite in the style of our symphonic taste. Flageolet strings, carefully played with a separate bow noise and an interesting wobble or chopper effect..

Gala by Fanan Team 0 (0)

Gala is a successor to our virtual analog instruments line which actually combines all of them under a single roof in 2 versions:

  • Gala XL – 28 instruments (royal pack member)
  • Gala free – 15 instruments (Free)

Both versions share the same basic features (which will be listed below) while the differences between them are:

  • Gala XL has keyboard split feature which allows splitting the hardware keyboard into 2 zones and routing each of the 4 oscillators to any zone
  • Gala XL has a new feature called “note slider” which allows creating note sliding sequence effect

Gala is based on an improved physical modeling code of a virtual analog oscillators that work in an open mixer format and mixes up 4 independent top crafted wave-forms with an incredible dynamic range and generates 28 instruments ensemble emulation, each with it’s own size and color which can mix any 4 instruments together and create rich multi combinations, articulations and textures.

Gala XL instruments:

  • 3 pop strings.
  • 5 oriental strings.
  • 4 cinematic-pop brasses.
  • 4 clarinets.
  • 4 accordions.
  • 4 oriental organs.
  • 4 saxophones.

Gala Free instruments:

  • 3 pop strings.
  • 4 cinematic-pop brasses.
  • 4 clarinets.
  • 4 saxophones.

Gala (both versions) has full synthesis section, 2 different MIDI velocity options, a user friendly global hipass-lopass filter, a full section of built in effects (saturation, chorus, phaser, tremolo, reverb and delay), built-in draw-bars system per oscillator, an advanced mono mode, full MIDI map, stereo and gleam effect and a resizable and customizable GUI.

Performer Free by Crumar – linux 0 (0)

Performer Free is a freeware edition of the Crumar Performer plugin released only for Linux users. It is a stripped-down version with every extra feature removed, leaving just the Performer as it is in real life. It’s available in VST2, VST3 and StandAlone format as a precompiled binary for amd64 (Intel architecture) and armhf (Raspberry Pi4 and compatible boards). The UI dowsizes automatically if the screen resolution is lower than the normal plugin’s UI size, in order to fit smaller displays that can be used with the Raspberry Pi. It’s been tested and proved to work flawlessly under Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10, Raspberry Pi OS running on a Pi 4 with 4 GB RAM, and Raspberry Pi 3 B+.

Decent Samples Slinky Violin v1.0.1 KONTAKT SFZ DECENT SAMPLER [FREE] 0 (0)

Throughout the years, I’ve owned several guitar amps with built-in spring reverb, and I’ve always loved that twangy, metallic sound. Spring reverb in electric guitar amps works by taking the signal from a guitar’s pickups, amplifying it, passing it into one end of a long coil, picking it up at the other end, and then amplifying that signal some more. Because the internal coil is long and twisty, the sound waves don’t travel directly from one end of the reverb tank to another, but instead take their time and bounce around. This produces the characteristic reverb effect we’ve all come to know and love.

I’ve always wondered what a violin would sound like if it were subjected to a similar treatment. Of course, an acoustic violin is a bit more analog than an electric guitar – there is no pickup – which raises the question: what if you were to attach the spring directly to the body of the instrument you were trying to add reverb to? After seeing a Simon the Magpie Youtube video in which Simon attempted a similar experiment on his acoustic guitar, I knew exactly what I had to do. You can watch my experiment unfold in the video linked above.

(And yes, I’ve since replaced the slinky I stole from my son.)

Cantus 1 is a virtual analog Chorus-Voice-Ensemble. It produces sounds like chanting choirs or singing voices generated by analog synthesis only. You may also get pad sounds with different colourations and vintage touch.

Shurely you know the old string-ensembles like „Solina Strings“, “Crumar”, “Logan Strings” or “ARP Quadra”. Many evergreen rock songs include the sound of this phenomenal vintage instruments. They are available as VST instruments in many versions at all.
Cantus 1 is a bizarre sister of this string ensembles. Using the same basic idea it generates also polyphonic pads but filtered and modyfied to vocal formants. It  produces harmonic choirs and voices processed by a formant filter and coloured by a parametric equalizer section. There is also a noise generator for additional breath sound. Cantus 1 sounds really retro and is equipped with chorus effect, stereo delay and reverbation.

It comes with 32 factory presets and a user manual.

Cantus 1- System requirements:

– PC with multicore processor
– Microsoft Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
– Professional soundcard or audio-device with ASIO-driver –technology
– 512 MB RAM
– MIDI-interface and software host supporting VSTi-plugin-technology
