FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS  

ULTIMATE PLAYABILITY

Fable Sounds have developed and patented
a unique and intuitive articulation switching system
that enables real-time access to all of the
articulations of an instrument from a single patch.
You can finally play a deeply sampled virtual instrument
with the same creative freedom and fluidity
as the musician playing the actual instrument would.

 

DEEPLY SAMPLED

An insane amount of articulations
and playing techniques,
providing endless possibilities
and unmatched level of expressiveness

 

LEGATO SAMPLING

Legato intervals recorded
up to major 9th up and down
in various legato interval articulations
providing unmatched realism

 

MASSIVE AMOUNT OF CONTENT

100GB of audio content
recorded at 24bit/44.1khz
140,000+ individual samples

 

METICULOUSLY RECORDED AND PROCESSED

Recorded in one of New York’s best live rooms,
using top quality microphones and pre-amps
and carefully processed to a virtually noiseless
recording, that still breathes naturally

 

GROUNDBREAKING TECHNOLOGY

Whether it’s our patented articulation switching system,
or our MIDI Data Morphing concept, our patented, lifelike, chaos-creating alternate samples management system, the musically liberating Unison Section feature, or our new, unique and powerful Real-Time Orchestrator, Fable Sounds always keeps you on the cutting edge of technology.

 

MULTIPLE MICROPHONE SETUPS

Sonic flexibility that would make the Broadway Big Band
instruments easily fit right into the mix, whatever
the genre or style of production may be.

New York Jazz, salsa, pop & Funk musicians.
It’s the real deal from top to bottom.

 

NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 2.0 

REAL-TIME ORCHESTRATOR (RTO)

A groundbreaking feature enabling polyphonic, poly-rhythmic legato across a mixed section of instruments. Using RTO you can play an entire section on the keyboard, and the notes you play are orchestrated in real time and distributed to the various instruments in the RTO multi, based on orchestration schemes that you can create yourself. This is an extremely powerful system which is extremely easy to use. Great for live shows, as well as tracking under tight deadlines. It also offers articulation presets which can replace the built-in key-switching with alternative midi triggers such as foot-switches, freeing your left hand for playing notes rather than key-switches.

 
 
 

UNISON SECTION

From now on, you can use any of the Broadway Big Band wind instruments multiple times in the arrangement or in a multi, even when playing unison, creating a realistic section of multiple instruments. This means that even with multiple instances of just one instrument, you can still get a realistic section of multiple instruments playing in unison. The feature is not some kind of a doubling effect, but rather it uses different samples, and performs slight adjustments to make sure each instance of the instrument sounds a little different from the other. The results are very realistic. The feature also includes “Humanize” and “Detune” knobs for further control over the section sound. 

 
 

NOTATION SOFTWARE SUPPORT

With version 2.0, “Notation mode” has been added to all of the Broadway Big Band instruments, to enable notation programs to communicate with Broadway Big Band and use it for playback of scores, including all included articulations and dynamics. The new Notation mode also enables integration with Cubase Expression maps. This was not previously possible due to the unique articulation switching system in Broadway Big Band. The new Notation Mode uses an alternative system of key-switching that is more in line with the way notation programs operate. (full documentation in the user manual).

 
 
 

VELOCITY CURVE CONTROL

Due to the extended dynamic range of the wind instruments included in Broadway Big Band, it is sometimes difficult to keep dynamics under control when using a MIDI keyboard’s velocity. To help overcome this, we’ve added a new knob to control the velocity curve, which helps adjusting the responsiveness of the Broadway Big Band instruments to various MIDI keyboards. The new velocity curve control feature can also be MIDI automated to make changes within a song as needed. 

 
 
 

A NEW ARTICULATION ADDED TO TENOR SAXOPHONE 1

FP+Vibrato, Added both as a temporary articulation and in combination with the existing “Strong Vibrato” articulation, as a new “Deep Vibrato” playing mode.

 

VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS IN PROGRAMMING AND UI

Improved consistency of levels and envelope programming and a new and improved user interface.
