Orchestral Tools have announced the launch of a new free subscription service called SINEfactory, which will be a series of free virtual instruments for use within their Orchestral Tools player engine, SINE.
The first 3 free instruments are Ratio, a sampled Steinway B grand piano, Gearbox, a lively studio percussion set, and Helix, a string ensemble. Orchestral Tools say they will add more instruments throughout this year. This service is similar to LABS by Spitfire Audio.
Ratio is a Steinway B grand piano suitable for soundtracks, Pop, Rock, ballads, etc. Recorded at Sunset Sound in LA, this very piano has been played by legends such as Earth Wind And Fire, Stevie Nicks, and Prince, as well as any number of contemporary artists.
Gearbox is a lively percussion set with various drums, tambourine, claps, congas, and more. This versatile collection of studio percussion instruments and body percussion was played and performed by multi-instrumentalist Aaron Williams of Aaron’s Grooves. Recorded in Studio III at LA’s Sunset Sound studios.
Helix brings an inspiring string ensemble with full & expressive sound. Taken from the acclaimed Berlin Series, Helix offers beautiful, playable sustains and spiccatos. Combining solo violins with violas, celli, and basses, this is a detailed and nuanced sound that adds an organic shine to your productions.
All of these instruments (libraries) work with the SINE Player, a free virtual instrument plugin for Windows and macOS (VST, AU).
