|Editor's Note: We're currently reviewing Sample Logic's Bohemian... expect a full, in-depth review on AskAudioMag.com around the 7th of April onward...!|
BOHEMIAN is a diverse collection of 800+ exotic, traditional, and morphed instruments & multis. This fresh and innovative library, performed by multi-instrumentalist, composer, and teacher Laura Inserra, is derived entirely from recordings of an extensive collection of unique bohemian street and world instruments ranging from Hang Drums and Harmonic Tubes, to Didgeridoo, and beyond. The instruments included in this collection are totally unique, and were hand crafted especially for Laura Inserra.
Recorded on the scoring stage at Skywalker Sound with renowned engineer Dann Thompson, BOHEMIAN’s source sounds capture the unique cinematic space of Skywalker Sound, which allowed Sample Logic to morph and expand these one of a kind instruments, creating a whole new world of bohemian street sounds, ready for any composition. Weighing in at over 9 GB, BOHEMIAN not only includes ready-to-play, psycho-acoustically sampled world percussive, melodic, and effectual instruments, but uses these instruments to enter into a world of rich and organic score-ready new world hybrid sounds. BOHEMIAN is compatible with the free Kontakt Player 5.4.3 or higher (See Tech Specs for OS compatibility).

Mixed Twice, Extra Nice
Experience the incredible depth of instruments recorded by an array of 10+ microphones in 5 different microphone positions, picking up each of the source instruments’ full bombast and subtlest nuance. Whether you require close and intimate sound, or hunger for wide open spaces, BOHEMIAN has you covered. These cinematic recording techniques make an amazing sonic imprint on all morphed and traditional instruments alike. In addition, BOHEMIAN’s traditional instruments are delivered as two separate mixes – a tight, mostly dry “Main” mix, and an supporting “Ambient” mix that captures the incredible scale of the Skywalker scoring stage – that can be used together dynamically or totally separately in the Sample Logic Kontakt interface.
BOHEMIAN’s innovative interface is equipped with 8 studio-quality effects, providing the freedom to infinitely transform samples into awesome twisted evolving soundscapes, crushing impacts, unprecedented sequences, soaring synths, and so much more with enormous power. The interface also includes Sample Logic’s signature Triggers, Wave, and LFOs, and now rises to new heights with several added features such as:
- Mixer section to blend two different mixes of each traditional instrument
- An expanded, dual-voice additive synthesis engine called “Wave”
- A “Dual Filter Oscillator” for unprecedented rhythmic effects
- Sample Logic’s proprietary Step Animator and FX Animator sequencers
Double The Fun
Sample Logic introduces a new take on the additive synthesis engine, “Wave,” with 41 wave shapes to choose from, and a dual-voice engine with independently-controllable volume envelopes, hi-cut filters, and FX animator engines. With this expanded, transposable wave section, waveforms can be added to the instrument’s overall sound, leading to endless customization and massive synths. In addition, each waveform volume can be sequenced via a Animators. Wave can be used in many ways, here are just a few examples:
- Add a sine wave transposed down a few octaves to add sub and thicken up a bass
- Sequence a wavetable volume to add a motion layer on top of a static pad
- Transpose a wave up a few octaves to add harmonics and make the overall instrument brighter
- Transpose a wave down a 5th to create harmonic instruments
Real Time Effects
The interface is equipped with the following tweak-able effects:
One of the most powerful features in BOHEMIAN are the powerful “Multi Script Macros”. Multi Script Macros can be automated by using the new macro knob step sequencers, resulting in real-time macro sequencing and instrument parameter control. On top of that, each of the 6 macro knobs can be assigned to any combination of instrument parameters within a multi. Multi script macros are completely customizable and can be easily created and saved. By design, any combination of instrument interface parameters can be assigned to a single macro. Whether performing live or automating a multi in a DAW, Multi Script Macros are the perfect production solution.
