We are proud to announce LASS Lite 2, one of the 2 reduced sound sets of LASS Full 2‘s library. LASS Lite 2 contains the same “Full Mix” patches that LASS Full 2 has where the players are recorded in position on the scoring stage and mixed in the traditional orchestral seating perspective, making it simple to get a magnificent string mix out of the box. Meanwhile we took the utmost care to ensure that the instruments can be panned anywhere with virtually no phasing problems should you need to do that.
While LASS Lite does not include LASS Full 2′s ARC (Audiobro Remote Control), all of LASS Lite’s patches are the same as LASS Full’s “Full Mix” 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 Lite. 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 Lite 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 or LASS First Chair. (listen to LASS demos)
Here are some new features the LASS 2 update includes (LASS Lite and FC’s features are in green — LASS Full has all the features):
The main difference between LASS Lite and the full version is that LASS Lite does not contain the Divisi Sections patches, the First Chair 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 Lite. All the “blue” patches come with LASS Lite (the “green” are for LASS First Chair and everything else is included in the full version of LASS).
LASS Lite 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 Lite offers you full section patches, it does not contain the divisi ensemble patches or the first chair. 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.
LASS Lite will not have the flexibility of LASS (full) insofar as being able to layer the different divisi sections and manipulate them discretely. However, LASS Lite gives you the famous LASS legato sound and short articulations that have set new standards in sampled strings.
LASS Lite 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.
