Vir2 releases Q 1.1 Patch Update.

Vir2 recently released the Q 1.1 Patch update, which includes minor enhancements to existing patches such as refined FX settings and pitch corrected samples. The FX settings in almost every patch of the factory library had minor changes made to make them sound more “production ready” upon loading without further adjustments being necessary. Some of the layer samples in the Multilayer Dreamscapes and Multilayer Drones patches were not playing back at the correct pitch; those have now been corrected. The update not only includes minor enhancements to the factory library patches, but also more than 50 new patches by Violence creator, Brendan Hogan.

Click HERE to download the update.

To install this update, locate the existing “Instruments” folder inside your Q folder. Move that folder outside of the Q folder to any location of your choosing. Next, move the new instruments folder into your Q folder. Once you have a patch loaded, you may choose to keep or delete the old instruments folder.

Note: This update requires version 4.2.2 or later of the Free Kontakt Player or full retail version of Kontakt.
