Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy nominated composer and orchestrator, Colin O’Malley, the 8Dio Agitato Expansion Series is an exciting evolution of our existing Adagietto and Adagio String Collections. Expanding upon the pioneering concepts of “raw emotional realism” and “natural expression” introduced in Adagio, Agitato is a definitive, next-generation set of string instruments. It was recorded in the same large church environment as our Adagio series, providing a lush, yet highly detailed sound. Our exploration of strings began with Adagio, as a comprehensive collection comprised of flowing legato performances, sustains, loure and other essential short note articulations.
Agitato Grandiose Legato is inspired by the soaring melodic styles of greats like William’s and Mancini, these legato instruments are designed for medium to rapid tempos. They can serve as the emotional leads in any sampled string orchestra, regardless of your template. Agitato Grandiose Legato consists of 7 different types of legato, starting with our new beautiful and smooth sustain x-fade. We also included more gentle legatos (ex. gentle and gentle detache), however if you are looking for a traditional soaring Hollywood inspired sound – we recommend our two Mancini Legatos, which brings forward that gorgeous, intense molto vibrato.
Agitato Grandiose Legato contains a completely new legato system, which is more flexible then ever. You have full control over dynamics and expression, including the ability to link the two. In addition we have a new highly adaptive legato speed system, which really allows the legato to adapt to your compositional style and preference.
