Evolution Series – World Colors: Pipa 1.0.0 (KONTAKT)

Welcome to the World Color Series!
The pipa is a traditional Chinese plucked string instrument similar to the western lute.
The pipa is a pear-shaped, four-stringed instrument. It has a short, curved neck with thirty frets that cover a portion of the soundboard for excellent follow-up.
Our award-winning team has gone to extraordinary lengths to capture the best musicians performing on a world-class stage. An exquisite instrument with the latest technology. This library offers unparalleled quality and endless creativity. We’ve spent thousands of hours making this library add a new dimension of authenticity to your next product. Like our other product lines, we always strive to capture lively and human performances so that playing the instrument is fun and intuitive.
Articulation Boxes – There are 3 central boxes located immediately below the text of the title of the tool. In each field, you can select and download an articulation. Since there are 3 blocks, you can load up to 3 articulations per preset slot.
Articulation Box Threshold– There is a sensitivity threshold between the three fields of articulation. It regulates movement between 3 boxes. For example, if the Vertical Mode is set to Velocity and the keystroke is between 0 and 80, you will play the lowest box, 81-109 will play the middle box, and 110-127 will play the top box.
Horizontal Mode – Controls access to the “slots” of the presets. The most common mode is “keyswitches”, although you can use any other midi CC between each slot.
Virtual Mode– Controls how you navigate between the fields of articulation. For example, if it is set to “Velocity”, you can use keystrokes to play different “articulation fields”. Depending on how you like to work, you can choose a different MIDI controller method.
Slots – One “slot” is essentially a preset of 3 “articulation slots”. You can have up to 20 “slots”. The large grid in the middle of the interface shows how many “slots” are in use and which one is selected at any given time.
KSW – Allows you to set the starting note for mapping your group of “keyswitches”. For example, if set to C0, the first switch will start at C0 and the rest will follow chromatically.
Legato ON– As an experiment, we added a SIPS script to create a fake legato. This is more of a bonus feature, but it can be useful for more melodic lines.
