We are proud to announce LASS Legato Sordino 2.5 (LASS LS 2.5). LASS LS 2.5 is an add-on string library that picks up where the original LASS FULL 2.5 left off with its sordino strings (muted strings). You can now achieve that wonderfully silky sordino sound with all the legato, portamento and glissando expressiveness that is so sought after in emotional scores.
Furthermore, LASS LS can now sound like some of the most coveted film scores and orchestral recordings with or without the ARC by simply accessing a Color drop-down menu on the front panel; or, you can chose Colors using the ARC that comes with LASS Full 2.5. Our Batman Cries Sordino Multi is a perfect example of this. Read more about the ARC and Stage and Color included in LASS Full 2.5 here.

With LASS’s divisi sections, LASS LS allows you not only all the divisi capabilities of LASS, but it also allows you to layer sordino with LASS Full’s standard legato strings to give you that hybrid sordino/non-sordino sound that is so popular in today’s film scores — listen to a hybrid example: The Calm After.
Just like its sibling LASS Full, at the heart of LASS LS’s revolutionary sound are Real Legato performance sample patches and a unique “layered ensemble” approach. These ensembles were all recorded individually in a large film scoring studio. Because they’re made up of different players (avoiding the dreaded “same player” sound), they combine seamlessly to produce entirely cohesive small, medium, or large sections with the right divisi ratios. 100% Legato Sordino – A video of a musical example using only LASS LS.
Aside from incorporating our new Stage & Color* feature into all LASS LS 2 patches (providing an easy way for LASS Full 2 owners to have LASS LS 2 sound like famous orchestral recordings and film scores), LASS LS 2.0 has updated all the performance scripts including the Auto Arranger, CC Tables, Real Legato, and the Tuning/Micro Tuning. These features have also been 100% integrated with LASS Full 2.0’s ARC (Audiobro Remote Control)*.
* In order to use the ARC’s features (which includes Stage and Color, Key Switcher, etc) you must be a LASS Full 2.0 owner. You can learn more about the ARC here.
Below is a partial list of some of LASS LS 2.0’s new features (you can also read about LASS’s new A.R.C. (Audiobro Remote Control) included when you own LASS Full 2.0).

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.
To make it easy to get just the right sound, all LASS patches and programming are consistent from the first chair to the full mix. If a part sounds right using one patch, the same sequence will sound right with the other patches. — no MIDI reprogramming required. The result is unprecedented control over dynamics, performance, and section size.
LASS LS is the first fully featured divisi legato sordino string library that offers real-time polyphonic Real Legato, Real Portamento , Real Glissando and Auto Divisi with audiobro’s Auto Arranger. LASS LS also brings a new look and functionality to LA Scoring Strings’ legato patches. The patches have been greatly optimized and re-coded to allow the end-user greater flexibility and ease of use. In addition to a new skin and new features, a new sample Load/Purge mode has been added to replace the many patches from LASS’s previous Legato patches.
In addition, all the blue buttons can be MIDI CC assignable allowing for additional performance automation so you can work fast without having to use the mouse for any of those features.
A new menu has been placed next to the “Leg”, “port” and “gliss” articulations that include the following options (watch a video about this):
L = Legato, P = Portamento, G = Glissando
