Vienna Symphonic Library VSL - APPASSIONATA STRINGS I

As the name suggests, these string ensembles are quite simply, passionate. Their lush, broad and emotive cinematic sound defies expectations for a virtual instrument. They integrate perfectly well into a variety of musical styles, from pop and rock environments to symphonic arrangements, from emotional ballads to film scores, from pure string beds to complete orchestral works.


    • VSL - APPASSIONATA STRINGS I PRODUCT FEATURES:

      Appassionata Strings I offers various facets of sustains and Legato Performances with different intensities of vibrato as their main focus, but also include articulations such as sul-G-Performances, accented interval notes, spiccatos, staccatos, various Repetition Performances, trills, runs, and much more. They also include “out-of-tune-samples” where various players of the ensemble carefully correct their intonation as the tone progresses. Mirroring what actually happens in live orchestral performances, this is a very effective technique for creating heightened realism and expression. The bass section of Appassionata Strings Iconsists of 6 five-string and 4 four-string basses, giving the low end a deep and rich flavor.
