For instance, you can use the FX page to apply distortion to a specific note or range of the instrument by applying it only to the attack phase of the note (or any other phase!). You can also use it to apply reverb only to specific notes or phrases that suit your needs or apply pitch shifting to some notes and not others.
Isobelle’s Cello Collection 1 includes an extensive set of effects as well as some new features:
A Unique XY PAD
To create a unique combination, you can mix and match sounds from the articulations in each corner of the XY pad.
The best part: you can automate your bend of sounds by right-clicking on the XY, X and Y axis faders and assigning them to any midi controller of your choosing—all with a simple click! Creating dynamic orchestration can make these transitions sound smooth or ‘seamless’.
You can play something that would not be possible in a concert hall, creating unconventional and modern musical sound design textures—perfect for a new wave of media music.
The XY pad allows you to choose from 12 different and unique IRs, which can be combined. It is exciting for library users to create their own space by unconventionally combining IRs. Especially in today’s world of modern media music, there is a great need for unique sounds.
Musical sounds and creative effects can be added to your mix, creating an intriguing effect that gives listeners more options.
This tape saturation effect adds a beautiful, warm character to your blend of sounds. fun tip: turn up the saturations about 60% while at least two articulations in your blend are pitch-shifted one or two octaves below.
Tape saturation gives the low end of a recording warmth and definition—in other words, it makes the sound closer to that of an analog synth.
Use this filter to control the cutoff and resonance of your blend of sounds. I often assign a midi fader to control the cutoff while controlling modulation via CC1.
This creates dramatic gestures and a uniquely smooth dynamic range, making it especially useful when blending Foundations with other instruments. It helps you fade into an arrangement more seamlessly by using the filter as another performance tool.
