One of the most common pitfalls for most orchestral libraries is the ability to write fast legato and fluent ostinato. The reality is that fast legato requires a completely unique string technique and the only way to truly do it – is to record it with specific techniques designed to capture the fast movement of strings. Agitato Legato Arpeggio is designed for very fast string passages, including arpeggios, ostinato figures and hyper fast legato melodies. Performed with a vibrant energy and bounce, Agitato Legato Arpeggio fills an important gap in our string repertoire. By design, the transitions have chaos and imperfection, capturing the natural glissing and complex overtones that occur when a string section plays rapidly
Agitato Legato Arpeggio is based on brand new sample content. We recorded 5 new types of Hyper-Fast Legato for Violins (2), Violas (1) and Cellos (2).
In addition to our Legato Arpeggio we also included our Ostinato Builder for Violins to this library, which is a collection of over 5,500 Ostinato Samples – intelligently designed for completely realistic Ostinatos. The Ostinato patterns are themed into 10 main categories and all tempo-synced to your DAW. The end-result is an incredibly deep selection of Ostinatos that sparkles with energy and natural flow.
Agitato Legato Arpeggio Strings are produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy Nominated composer, Colin O’Malley. The 8Dio Agitato Expansion series is the third branch to our existing Adagietto and Adagio String Collections. The Agitato Expansion series addresses the most sought-after string articulations, including Grandioso Soaring Legato, Hyper-Fast Legato, True Ostinato and Soaring Sordino. Agitato was recorded in the same large and lush church as our Adagio & Adagietto series and is the logical extension to these libraries.
