Full Ensemble Strings
ADAGIETTO is a powerful, easy-to-use, full string ensemble set based on our deep-sampled and highly expressive Adagio String Series.
Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy nominated composer and orchestrator, Colin O’Malley, 8Dio Adagio String Series is the definitive collection of deep-sampled emotional strings ever created.
Adagietto is bread-and-butter of Adagio. It just works. No hassle. Play and Go. Everything is neatly laid out as full ensemble patches, so you can just start composing. The new three-way legato system is based on your velocity (Slur Legato, Normal Legato and Fast Legato).
Adagietto is based on Full Ensemble Strings from the Adagio collection. Full Ensemble Violin (11), Full Ensemble Viola (8), Full Ensemble Cello (6) and Full Ensemble Bass (4). All Adagietto patches comes both as full ensemble patches (all string groups) and as individual string sections (ex. isolated cellos). So you can either compose quickly with the entire ensemble or do more delicate orchestrations with the individual sections. Adagietto is all about ease of use, playability and giving you the shortest route to great results.
The entire collection was sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of classical string players. All groups were sampled with two different microphone positions (close/far). We employed all current generation sampling techniques (ex. true legato, deep sampled repetitions etc). New techniques were also developed to capture a higher level of emotion and humanity in the performances. The result is a passionate virtual instrument which is extremely agile to play.
