Vienna Symphonic Library releases High + Low Strings for Big Bang Orchestra
Two New Big Bang Orchestra String Packs
Vienna Symphonic Library releases High Strings and Low Strings
Vienna, July 1, 2020 – The Vienna Symphonic Library is pleased to announce the release of two new installments of their successful Big Bang Orchestra series. Both libraries offer the lush and rich string sound of the Synchron Stage Orchestra’s exquisite string sections, playing in the exceptional acoustics of the company’s own scoring stage. Big Bang Orchestra: Lyra includes the ensembles of first violins, second violins and violas playing together in unison and in octaves. Big Bang Orchestra: Musca offers the ensembles of cellos and basses playing in octaves. Both libraries are currently availble at introductory prices of $71 (reg. $104) each.
The city of Vienna has always been famous for its exquisite string players and their fine instruments. On Vienna Symphonic Library’s own scoring stage, the string sections of the Synchron Stage Orchestra form a marvelous symbiosis with the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna to create a shimmering, lush string sound that is now a cornerstone of the Big Bang Orchestra.
“Lyra”, the first Big Bang Orchestra module dedicated entirely to string ensembles, offers beautiful recordings of three string sections. With 14 first violins and 12 second violins playing in unison, and 8 violas playing an octave below, their captivating performances are perfect for those soaring melodies and prominent themes.
“Musca” offers the low string sections of six cellos and four basses playing together, delivering a well-rounded foundation for the Big Bang Orchestra.
Recording these sections playing together creates a homogenous, well-balanced sound, as the musicians adjust their intonation, tone color, phrasing and vibrato instantly and instinctively with each other. It’s this exceptional coherency that makes these string performances so special and guarantees a beautiful, balanced timbre.
All Big Bang Orchestra String Packs come with a large palette of articulations that includes variations of short notes, long notes with two vibrato intensities, legatos, espressivo, sfz, sffz, crescendos and diminuendos, tremolos, fast repetitions, half tone and whole tone trills, half tone and whole tone slides up and down (glissandos), and pizzicatos. As with all libraries powered by the Synchron Player, the tempo of all articulations, e.g., repetitions and glissandos, can be easily adjusted using the integrated time stretch feature. All string performances are completely new recordings that blend perfectly well with the tutti recordings of the other Big Bang Orchestra modules.
