Agitato Sordino is the most comprehensive sample collection of expressive Sordino (Mute) Ensemble Strings on the market. It is best described as the deep and emotional sound of motion picture. The Sordino Strings have a depth, air, silk and sadness to them that you won’t find with normal strings.
Agitato Sordino is based on brand new sample content. We recorded 9 new types of Sordino Legato for Violins, Violas, Cellos and Basses.
Agitato Sordino offers three different approaches to Sordino Strings. First of all we deep-sampled several layers of True Sordino Legatos, which we programmed into an incredibly flexible and playable set of True Sordino Legatos. Secondly we recorded all the sections individually (11 Violins, 8 Violas, 6 Cellos and 4 Basses), so you have full control over each section and thirdly we reprogrammed all the individual patches into Full Sordino Ensemble Patches for easy, fluent writing and sketching. The Full Sordino Ensemble patches include Sordino Sustains, Sordino and Sordino Dynamic Bowings.
Agitato Sordino 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.
Agitato Sordino Legato contains a completely new legato system, which is more flexible than 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.
