Checking Out: Big Bang Orchestra Neptune & Orion by Vienna Symphonic Library

 

We’ve been big fans of what Vienna Symphonic Library is doing with it’s Big Bang Orchestra sample library series. The sound quality, flexibility and articulations, especially for a “starter edition” sample library, are what have set this series apart from the beginning.

Now with the Big Bang Orchestra (BBO) Woodwind Packs, users have a complete set of ensemble libraries to compose orchestral scores.

BBO Neptune is Vienna‘s Tutti Woodwinds ensemble library capturing an ensemble of 13 woodwinds in unison & octaves including:
1 Piccolo, 3 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 1 English Horn, 2 Clarinets in Bb, 1 Bass Clarinet, 2 Bassoons & 1 Contrabassoon. As with the other BBO libraries, Neptune was recorded on the Synchron Stage in Vienna with multiple microphone positions, additional close mics for the woodwinds and a selection of mixer presets. This should blend perfectly with BBO or other libraries recorded on the Synchron Stage.

BBO Orion is Vienna‘s Woodwind Sections library capturing 4 Woodwind Ensembles (3 Flutes, 3 Oboes, 3 Clarinets in Bb, 3 Bassoons) each playing in Unison. As with the other BBO libraries, Orion was recorded on the Synchron Stage in Vienna with multiple microphone positions, additional close mics for the woodwinds and a selection of mixer presets. This should blend perfectly with BBO or other libraries recorded on the Synchron Stage.

Both instruments run in the FREE Synchron Player engine (AU/VST/AAX) and require a VIENNA KEY or other USB eLicenser.

In this video, we test out the libraries in a mock-up, and see how they sound blending with the other BBO instruments.
