ADAGIO is the air, the flow, the burn and the sorrow of symphonic strings.
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 a new-generation orchestral sample library and the most expressive collection of deep-sampled strings ever created.
Adagio Violas VST Vol. 1 contain three main groups of Violas. Full Ensemble Violas (7), Divisi Violas (3) and Solo Viola (1). All groups have been extensively sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of great viola players from the San Francisco Bay Area. All groups were sampled with three different microphone positions (close, far, mixed) and we deployed the same unique sampling techniques we applied to all our Adagio products, including round robin legato and the ability to connect legato effortlessly with other articulations like loure (floating notes) and dynamic bowings (expressive notes). We also recorded new specific viola articulations (ex. 3 different types of sordino spiccato, deep-sampled sordino loure and sordino bowings etc).
