In a world…in a land…coming to studios near you: Vir2 Instruments’ Q, a massive sound design and scoring instruments library designed for the unique needs of television, film, game, and media composers and music producers who want to add a fresh and previously unheard dimension to their sonic palette.
Q (as in, cue, or, if you prefer, as in the master spy’s gadget man), contains almost two thousand patches and 16GB of sample material including cinematically thunderous drums, percussion, winds, vocals, ethnic instruments, metallic textures, glass, guitar, toy, ambient atmospheres, synth landscapes, and trailer-ready effects. The library includes both playable melodic pitched instruments and multi-sampled one-shot percussion and effects. A large collection of epic percussion loops which automatically sync to tempo and are playable both whole and by the slice are also included.
Q’s easy-to-use interface provides one-click effecting of the library, including the famed EZRoom convolution, delay, chorus, filters, chorusing, flanging, and more. Other advanced functions include a special legato mode for melodic instruments and crossfade controls for multilayered instruments.
The collection is divided up into twenty-three main category folders: Ambient Chordal Pads, Cymbals, Gongs, Rolls, and Effects, Drums and Percussion, Granular Orchestra, Guitars, Hong Kong Cinema, Horns and Winds, Impacts and Low Drums, Loops and Construction Kits, Metallic and Glass Melodies, Middle Eastern, Morphstruments, Multilayer Dreamscapes, Multilayer Drones, Mystery, Pedal Steel Ambiences, Pulp Surfer, Sound Effects, Stylistic Phrases, Tempo Textures, Toys and Character Keyboards, Voices, and Western.
While everything in Q is mapped in Kontakt format ready to play from a MIDI controller, as a bonus many of Q’s one-shot effects (such as booms, whooshes, metal scrapes and hits, and special sound effects) are also available in open 24-bit WAV format, allowing instant drag-and-drop into a film mix.
The central interface for all Q instruments is simple and straightforward, allowing instant access to all the main effects: EZRoom, filters, limiter, phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, delay, and gainer, as well as pitch bend control.
Melodic instruments feature an additional interface that allows for the optional usage of an optimized legato mode ensuring smooth and realistic transitions between notes for solo playing.
Multilayered instruments, such as drones and dreamscapes, feature another interface that features direct access to each layer’s volume, pan, tuning, and envelope characteristics.
Every knob and slider in the interface can be assigned to any external MIDI CC via an easy-to-use MIDI learn function, allowing real-time external control of parameters.
Q requires a free or full version of Kontakt 5 or later.
