String Sounds Worthy of the Big ScreenNOTE: This product requires an iLok to operate.
Cinematic strings! Compose Oscar-worthy arrangements with Hollywood Strings, an exciting release from the virtual instrument masters at EastWest Quantum Leap. This brilliant plug-in features a near-endless catalog of string articulations and sounds, each meticulously recorded for flawless quality. In fact, the team that worked on the Hollywood Strings project includes Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning engineers and producers — some of the same guys who recorded and mixed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the latest Star Wars movies, Jurassic Park, Titanic, Harry Potter, and more. You can be sure the string sounds in Hollywood Strings are silver screen ready!
There's no doubt about it, EastWest Quantum Leap didn't hold back when they created Hollywood Strings. All the recording took place at the famous EastWest Studio 1 — the same studio where countless Hollywood soundtracks and TV themes were recorded with a live orchestra. The emphasis for this plug-in and creative tool is on giving you an extraordinary range of expression — it really is like having a first-class string section on call, at any hour of the day. Every section was sampled with wide extended ranges, including almost four octaves for violins — there were 16 1st violins, 14 2nd violins, 10 violas, 10 cellos, and 7 basses. And, of course, these musicians were recorded using nothing but the finest gear, including a Neve 8078 mixing console and premium microphones.
Speaking of microphones, with this Hollywood Strings Diamond Edition, you get major flexibility when it comes to how you want your miked instruments to sound. In fact, you get to control five mic positions to perfect your orchestrations. Go ahead and adjust the main, mid, close, surround, and alternate room mics to suite your ear's every wish. You can also experiment heavily with articulations after the fact to get just the right feel for your score. The Diamond Edition includes every articulation, including multiple finger positions for all sections, three unique styles of legato interval sampling and bow change legato, 5 dynamics of up and down bowed sustains, and all the must-have articulations, including pizzicato, staccato, richocet, tremolo marcato, harmonics, and more.
Give your music the chance to make it to the big stage — put a world-class orchestra under your control and get creative with the unbelievable EastWest Quantum Leap Hollywood Strings Diamond Edition!
