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 marks the most expressive collection of deep-sampled emotional strings ever created. Adagietto is bread-and-butter of Adagio. It just works. No hassle. 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 (Emotional Slur Legato, Village Legato and Instinct Legato). The legato system is divided into each string group and contains 11 unique legato recordings for the four string groups.
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). 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.
