MOTUs Symphonic Instrument has had a fairly major overhaul with the new version 1.1. Firstly, for those major orchestral works - you can now run up to 64 parts per plug-in instance including support for multiple outputs. These 17 internal soft outputs can be used for creating complex submixes before assigning to available hardware outs. Disk streaming has also been added which can be enabled or disabled independently for each of the 64 instrument parts. By streaming samples from disk, rather than loading them entirely into RAM, Symphonic Instrument conserves large amounts of RAM, allowing you to load more instruments simultaneously and free up their RAM resources for other plug-ins and applications. Streaming also significantly speeds up the time it takes for instruments to load, especially instruments with large sample sets. New to the Symphonic Instrument 1.1 is standalone operation, allowing it to be run independent of a plug-in host, turning a Mac or PC into a streamlined orchestra instrument powerhouse with 64 parts, disk streaming, 16 independent audio outputs and 8GB of orchestra sounds. Stand-alone operation also allows the Symphonic Instrument to be used with Make Music Finale 2006 and other music software applications that do not host 3rd-party instrument plug-ins. Stand-alone operation is virtually identical to plug-in operation, except for a few additional settings for audio/MIDI input and output. More From: MOTU
