Vienna Symphonic Library Ships Appassionata Strings Virtual Instrument
By Guest |
The Vienna Symphonic Library team is proud to announce the release of the highly anticipated new VIENNA INSTRUMENTS Collection APPASSIONATA STRINGS, which is now available from Vienna's worldwide network of distributors and dealers.
Appassionata Strings' large ensembles of 20 violins, 14 violas, 12 cellos and 10 basses integrate perfectly into a variety of musical styles, from pop and rock environments to symphonic arrangements, from emotional ballads to films, from pure string beds to complete orchestral scores.
The 18GB Appassionata Strings offer various facets of sustains and Legato Performances with different intensities of vibrato as their main focus, but also include articulations such as sul-G-Performances, accented interval notes, spiccatos, staccatos, various Repetition Performances, trills, runs, and much more. They also include Vienna's innovative "out-of-tune-samples" where various players of the ensemble carefully correct their intonation as the tone progresses. Mirroring what actually happens in live orchestral performances, this is a very effective technique for creating heightened realism and expression.
The Appassionata Strings' bass section of 10 instruments consists of 6 five-string and 4 four-string basses, giving the low end a rich and resounding tone.
