“pointillistic effect of having multiple players perform short notes at random intervals to create an undulating swell of sound”

“A new standard in orchestral sample library innovation, this will significantly expand your existing orchestral palette to include a huge variety of totally unique textures. As an alternative to just using straightforward long notes, this library draws upon the pointillistic effect of having multiple players perform short notes at random intervals to create an undulating swell of sound that can be performed in real time for inspiring results. Taking our Swarm approach, but adapted for the orchestra, it gives access to even greater detail by utilising the huge variety of articulations and playing styles of orchestral instruments and will give your compositions a liquid dynamic that dances alongside the picture.

This library has been created exclusively in collaboration with Bleeding Fingers, and is featured in Blue Planet 2 and Hans Zimmer/Radiohead’s collaboration “(ocean) bloom”.
