All Agitato


The 8Dio Agitato Expansion series is the third branch to our existing Adagietto and Adagio String Collections. The Agitato Expansion series addresses to 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.

Agitato Grandiose Legato is inspired by the soaring melodic styles of Williams and Mancini and designed as fast melodic leads for any string library of your choice. The bundle contains 6 different libraries, including Divis and Ensemble options for Cellos, Violas, and Violins. It also comes with dozens of legato options, 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 is 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 a passionate string ensemble. 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 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). In addition, 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 industry’s most sought-after articulations.
