VSTBuzz and Impact Soundworks just released a massive discount on “The Orchestral Bundle”, a comprehensive collection of five deeply sampled orchestral libraries covering a wide range of instruments and vocal styles including: Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, Strings, Traditional Men’s & Women’s Choirs and a Slavic Women’s Choir.
Eric Whitacre Choir is Spitfire Audio’s latest addition to their roster of premium sample libraries and their very first symphonic choir product. Created in tight collaboration with Grammy Award-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre, this new choir instrument seeks to go beyond the beaten paths of angelic, sacred and apocalyptic vocal sounds.
Spitfire Studio Strings is Spitfire Audio’s latest addition to their roster of orchestral sample libraries and the first product in an entirely new range of symphonic instruments. After having captured most of their orchestral instruments in AIR Studio’s spacious Lyndhurst Hall, the developers wanted to break new ground by establishing a fresh range of sample libraries that provides a crisp edge and a more controllable room tone.
Heavyocity just released another product in their range of modern orchestral virtual instruments: FORZO Modern Brass. Following the successful concept of their Modern Strings range NOVO, FORZO is in essence three libraries in one: a powerful 26-piece orchestral brass section sampled with over 100 articulations, a hybrid engine that masterfully merges traditional brass and sound design and a loop designer that puts over 400 tempo-synced brass loops at your fingertips.
In this review, we’ll have a look at the library’s features and find out together, if FORZO can hold up to its award-winning sibling NOVO.
With their most recent sample library Largo, Dutch sample library developer just released a long-awaited addition to their popular line of phrase-based libraries. Largo (meaning “slow” in Latin) delves into the realm of soaring string melodies, lush woodwind chord ensembles and smooth brass lines – sounds reminiscent of classic film scores and historical features.
Spitfire Audio is back with another string library: Spitfire Solo Strings – a library created to provide your orchestral arrangements with a sense of expression, intimacy and the definition some larger string ensembles tend to lose. In this review, we’ll have a look and listen to Spitfire Audio’s brand-new solo string library and find out together how much of a useful enhancement it can be to the company’s existing products.
Today we’re having a look at Cinematic Composing’s popular online course called Symphonic Virtual Orchestration. Hosted by L.A.-based film music composer and tutor Marc Jovani, the course provides a comprehensive guide to orchestration, recording, mixing and mastering of sample-based orchestral arrangements.
After the success of their first two trailer sound effects libraries Evolution: Dragon and Evolution: Atlantica, Keepforest is back with another SFX pack, filled to the brim with cutting edge trailer sounds. With the Vikings Bundle, Keepforest explores the sonic world of Scandinavian mythology and delivers a tonal palette full of metal, grit and raw power.
Upcoming virtual instrument developer Red Room Audio just came up with a brand-new release: SAGA – Acoustic Trailer Percussion. After launching their very first, well-received product Palette – Symphonic Sketchpad just a couple of months ago, this time, the brand is back with a cinematic percussion library that’s geared toward a cutting-edge, organic trailer sound.
