Advanced Legato. Ensemble & Chamber Violins

Agitato Grandiose Legato for Violins is inspired by the soaring melodic styles of Williams and Mancini. We recorded both Ensemble and Divisi Violins, which are offered as stand-alone and bundled libraries. The concept of these libraries is to nail that fast, soaring, melodic Hollywood legato we’ve always wanted, but never had. 

The Agitato Expansion series addresses to most sought-after sting 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.

Agitato Grandiose Legato Violins bundle consists of 14 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. The bundle contains both Ensemble and Divisi Grandiose Legato. Fully compatible with the existing Adagio and Adagietto Strings Series, but also designed for full compatibility with any 3rd party string library.

Agitato Grandiose 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.



Hyper-Realistic Legato

Agitato Grandiose Legato nails something incredibly rare: the true vibrant sound of passionate 11- and 3-piece Violin ensembles. These libraries are about that soaring lushness of strong melodic strings. The Grandiose Legato contains 7 different types of legato, from traditional x-fade sustains to 8Dio’s new legato system allowing you to blend legato with other bowing techniques.

Microphone & Room

Agitato Grandiose Legato Ensemble & Divisi Violins

Agitato Grandiose Legato Violins contains 3 microphone positions (Close, Far, & Mixed). Everything was recorded with the best Neumann through custom pre-amps in a live church environment (the same we used for Adagio and Adagietto). We also offer output routing per microphone, so you can assign each mic to individual outputs for more heavy mixing.

8Dio String Family

Adagietto, Adagio, Anthology, and Agitato are all part of the same family and were recorded in the same church. Adagietto covers the core fundamentals of ensemble strings. Adagio/Anthology is the state-of-the-art library for hyper-realistic string orchestration. Agitato is a series of specialty products targeting the most sought-after articulations in the industry.
