We are proud to announce LASS First Chair 2 (LASS FC 2), one of the 2 reduced sound sets of LASS Full 2‘s library. LASS FC 2 features solo instruments performed by the section leaders. Rather than sounding like “guest soloists,” these instruments sound like the first chair players they actually are, blending perfectly with the sections they came from.
While LASS FC 2 does not include LASS Full 2′s ARC (Audiobro Remote Control), all of LASS FC 2′s patches are the same as LASS Full’s “First Chair” patches… with the exception of not including LASS Full’s Stage and Color features.
However, we did add a taste of our new Color technology to LASS FC 2. There is a new “Color” button that lets you use our Bat Man Color profile. Pre-programmed Multis are included so you can simply load them up and play!!
LASS FC 2 is a great way to be introduced to the LA Scoring Strings concept and there is a dollar-for-dollar upgrade path (based on the current sale price of the product) to the full version of LA Scoring Strings (see store for more details).
Please visit the LASS Full’s 2 page to get an idea of what LASS 2 patches can do… keeping in mind that the ARC and Stage & Color are not included in LASS Lite 2 or LASS First Chair 2. (listen to LASS demos)
Here are some new features the LASS 2 update includes (LASS Lite 2 and FC 2’s features are in green — LASS Full 2 has all the features):
The main difference between LASS FC 2 and the full version is that LASS FC 2 does not contain the Divisi Sections or the Full mix patches or the ARC (Audiobro Remote Control — a LASS Full 2.0 feature only). The chart below shows what patches and articulations come with LASS FC 2. All the “blue” patches come with LASS Lite 2 (the “green” are for LASS FC 2 and everything else is included in the full version of LASS).
LASS FC 2 is a Kontakt based sample library and runs on Kontakt 5.02 or Kontakt Player 5.02. Kontakt Player 5 is available as a free download from Native Instruments’ website.
While LASS FC 2 offers you first chair (solo) patches, it does not contain the divisi ensemble patches or the “Full Mix” patches. Nor does it include the ARC (Audiobro Remote Control) which is a LASS Full 2.0 feature only. However, the patches included in LASS Lite work exactly the same way as the same patches in the full version of LASS (minus the ARC)… there is no difference in the patch functionality. You still get the great ART script and Auto Arranger script and every other script that comes with the full version of LASS… just not the divisi or first chair patches or the Stage & Color feature.
LASS FC 2 is a downloadable library and uses the new Native Instruments NCW loss-less compression in 16 bit format to save you hard disk space and also reduce your download times.
