Florchester

● The instruments of Florchestra, the maestro of a famous wandering musician named Artina who brought out the musical talent of Shais, have been revealed to the world.
 New "Florchestra" instruments that bring out the talent of Shais have been added. There are a total of 7 Florchestra instruments, and out of the 7, 5 are upgraded versions of the old beginner instruments while 2 are completely new instruments that were not part of the beginner instruments.

Florchestra instruments boast a more exquisite exterior than the old beginner instruments, and their sounds can be modulated through a processor called an Effector. Also, the musical technique differs for each type of instrument. A musical technique refers to the many different ways of playing music and the Effector is a music processor that modulates the sounds of instruments to be more extravagant. You can use a fuller sounding and more beautiful music than with the old beginner instruments by using these two tools to its full extent.

These new instruments were crafted to bring out the talent of skillful Shai Adventurers who enjoy Black Desert's instrumental performance system. Do all these terms seem like Ancient jibberish to you? Take a gander at [Florchestra Lessons with Artina] made for beginner musicians like yourself!

- Florchestra instruments boast a more exquisite design and richer timbre than the old beginner instruments, and their sounds can be modulated through a processor called an Effector. Also, the musical technique differs for each type of instrument.
● Added a Florchestra Instruments category on the Compose window. You can set the Effector and musical technique when you select a Florchestra instrument.
- You can adjust settings for the Effector from the upper left of the Compose window.
- The Effector has 5 types of effects.
 
Effects Description
Reverb Time Provides a sense of space by adding reverberation.
Delay FeedBack Adjusts the number of echoes.
Chorus FeedBack Adjusts the Effector's amount of repeated sounds.
Chorus LFO Depth Adjusts the Effector's modulation depth.
Chorus LFO Frequency Adjusts the Effector's modulation frequency.
- You can adjust the amount of sounds transferred from your instrument to the Effector by using AuxSend from the Florchestra Instruments category. When it lights up, it means that the sounds are being transferred to the Effector.
 
 
- The settings for the Effector affects the entire song.
- You can adjust the settings for the musical technique on the upper right of the Compose window. Musical techniques refer to ways of playing music, and they differ for each different type of instrument.
 
 
- You can see the default musical technique on the uppermost part of the screen.
- You can see that notes of the same color as the selected color on the musical technique selection window will appear when you enter a note after changing musical techniques.
- You cannot enter many different musical techniques for the same beat. Also, the last musical technique you selected will be applied to all.
● Changed the Music Album window to categorize beginner instruments and Florchestra instruments differently.
- Select the Florchestra category and press the button for playing to use a Florchestra instrument to play solo or in an ensemble.
 
 
● Florchestra's apprentice, Artina, found the blueprints for Florchestra's instruments in the seventh home she left behind, letting the world know how of the method to craft these instruments.
- According to what's written on the blueprints, there is a tree called the Tree of Seven Sounds, which is invisible to regular people and is said to be the source of all sounds. They say the blessing of young spirits who guarded the Tree of Seven Sounds is necessary to craft a special instrument that can tug at one's heartstrings.
 The method to obtain these newly released Florchestra instruments with their brilliant tones, musical techniques, and Effector, is different from beginner instruments that you can get directly from a shop with Silver. You can slowly obtain the upgraded versions of the beginner instruments over 10 days via daily quests. Since you cannot complete the daily quests for each instrument simultaneously, you should carefully decide on which instrument you want to obtain first. However, for the new types of instruments that weren't part of the beginner instruments, the drum set and the handpan, you can craft both instruments in a single day by following each of their weekly quests (though not simultaneously). In this case, don't forget that you need to co-op and play ensembles with other Shai Adventurers! Although they're more difficult to obtain these than the beginner instruments, Florchestra instruments crafted from memories gained by going on concert tours in different territories with other Shai Adventurers will hold great meaning.
● You can craft Florchestra's instruments through Processing (L) using the blessing of young spirits obtained through quests.
