HOLLYWOOD SOLO VIOLIN DIAMOND EDITION
The EastWest Hollywood Solo Instruments series is comprised of Hollywood Harp, Hollywood Solo Cello and Hollywood Solo Violin.
These extensive libraries were recorded, engineered, and produced with the superior level of sound quality the EastWest brand is known for. Each of the instruments was recorded in Studio 1 at EastWest Studios, the same studio Hollywood Orchestra was recorded in. This gives the complete Hollywood Orchestral series a consistent sound and ambience, which emulates a traditional large studio orchestra.
A wide variety of articulations were recorded for each instrument, focusing on typical solo instrumentation. In some cases, these various articulations are presented as separate instruments in PLAY’s Browser view. In other cases articulations are accessible via a key-switch instrument, where multiple articulations load as one instrument, and pressing a trigger key activates the current one.
These instruments can be used on their own or integrated into a larger orchestral framework with other titles in the Hollywood Orchestra Series. All these titles have been designed to work together to create an integrated orchestral sound. They were all…
- Recorded in the same studio with many of the same microphones and positions
- Engineered by Sound Engineer Shawn Murphy
- Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix
- Programmed using the same practices and software
The recent introduction of harp, solo cello and solo violin is the icing on the cake, and will be welcomed by those who seek orchestral realism and detail. Even if you don’t own the whole library, you can buy these top-quality solo instruments safe in the knowledge that they’re totally compatible with the large ensembles in the other Hollywood collections, and as such they represent a good, durable investment for composers, musicians and producers looking to create authentic, large-scale, great-sounding orchestral arrangements. — Sound on Sound
The EastWest/Quantum Leap Hollywood Solo Violin virtual instrument is a library designed to work together seamlessly with the Hollywood Orchestra series. While it includes the same number of microphone positions, and many of the same features, there are a few key differences that are outlined below.
- The microphone configuration is designed for solo instruments, as opposed to a full orchestra. Instead of the surround and vintage surround microphone positions used in the Hollywood Orchestra series, the Hollywood Solo Violin supplements the close and mid microphone positions with vintage alternatives.
- In the Hollywood Solo Violin, dynamics and vibrato depth are linked together on the Mod Wheel (CC1), whereas the Hollywood Orchestra series offers independent control of dynamics and vibrato depth.
- A new type of Legato instrument is available (Legato Sustain) that combines the legato and sustain articulations into one sample layer, allowing for more continuity over the duration of a note.
- The Hollywood Solo Violin Diamond Edition includes additional mic postions, and controls and features.
Hollywood Solo Instruments puts world-class violin, cello and harp sounds at your fingertips.
