Custom Dystopia (Symphobia Strings)

  • Published on Feb 20, 2011
  • After a few messages asking my opinion on Symphobia strings and how I think they stand up on their own, I decided to create a video dedicated to them. I create a few custom 'Dystopia' patches as well as make use of the effects and ensembles.
    The track can be heard in higher quality here:

    hi daniel. your demo sounds great.

    strings and a VERY loud keyboard. :) I'm just starting to dabble with orchestral sounding stuff and wondered about how you would ever get a full orchestra composition b4 running out of CPU and RAM. thanks for the vid!

    Daniel, first of all very much for your videos. They are awesome. To further learn from this video, I've tried to replicate the sound. I just can't get the same sound using my ping pong delay and mono delay. I am using cubase. Can you share how you have set the tempo on both and how they are linked together?

    Wow, that 1:00 demo sounded a lot like Metal Gear Solid 3

    Just a short question, how can you get this 'attack, decay, sustain and release' control panel within Symfobia? - by the way, I don't have this function 'main page' at the moment -

    .nki files are library files that are meant to be automatically detected in Kontakt.

    Get 1! the 2nd library is more of an addition to the 1st than a replacement.
