the-clarinetHephaestus Sounds has announced the release of The Clarinet, a free sample library for Kontakt by Native Instruments

The Clarinet for Kontakt introduces a new real-time playing concept that combines executive details with easy of use. The Performer Intelligent Technology © automatically adjusts a multitude of variables in order to get a real-time execution with stunning realism. Without any change you can play legato, a chord, staccato, accented, etc. Playing a chord, the legato is activated only for the active phrase during the chord, without cut notes and with different glide for each note interval.

PIT © also uses Modulation controller and key-switches in its work. In this case, Modulation controller switches from the non-vibrato to the vibrato mode in real-time, without sample loadings or cut notes. The key-switches allow you to control attack and release of a note, in real-time. In this case, pressing the C1 key-switch first and then playing a note, the sound results in a slide-up attack. Playing a note first (keeping it pressed), then pressing the C1 key-switch and releasing the note, the sound results in a fall-down ending.
