Published: Wed March 05, 2008  News Feed

Peter Siedlaczek's passion for producing quality orchestral sample-based products is evident in the latest editions of his two software products 'Complete Classical Collection' and 'String Essentials' which both now ship with the Native Instruments Kontakt 2 player.

  • New Dual-Harmonize function allows you to create any desired interval combination and with the new Microtune-function you can easily create arabic/oriental/exotic tunings
  • Using the new Humanize-function subtle tone changes are made to any new tone, and each note will sound a little bit different
