The Sound Of Hollywood Strings


Vienna Symphonic have released the Appassionata Strings II collection featuring muted large string ensembles that they say are a special gem for everybody who is looking for the sweet, Hollywood-type string sound. The sequel to Appassionata Strings offers almost all of the articulations that the first Collection includes, but played “con sordino�.
Here’s VSL’s own description…
As their name suggests, the muted string ensembles are quite simply, passionate. Their broad and emotive cinematic sound defies expectations for a virtual instrument. They integrate perfectly well into a variety of musical styles, from pop environments to symphonic arrangements, from emotional ballads to films, from pure string beds to complete orchestral scores.
The Appassionata Strings II offer various facets of sustains and Legato Performances, but also include articulations such as accented interval notes, spiccatos, staccatos, various Repetition Performances, trills, and much more. They also include Vienna’s innovative “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 Appassionata Strings’ bass section of 10 instruments consists of 6 five-string and 4 four-string basses, giving the low end a deep and rich flavor.
