Big Bang Orchestra: Zodiac - Supermassive Ensembles

With Big Bang Orchestra: Zodiac , the monumental series of the Vienna Symphonic Library is entering the grand finale. The string ensemble, consisting of a total of 112 musicians, as well as the oversized brass ensembles will give your arrangements massive assertiveness, epic breadth and a previously unattained sonority.

The collection contains seven ensembles:

  • First violins - 30 musicians
  • Second violins - 26 musicians
  • Violas - 20 musicians
  • Celli - 22 musicians
  • Double basses - 14 musicians
  • Horns - 12 musicians
  • Trumpets - 9 musicians

Each ensemble was recorded individually in the Synchron Stage Vienna with a large microphone setup, from close miking, medium distance and decca tree to surround and high-surround 3D audio (immersive audio). The multitude of available presets makes it easy to achieve the perfect sound "out of the box" - be it to fit into the overall sound of all other modules in the Big Bang Orchestra series or to use the ensembles in different types of arrangements and genres to place.

Zodiac GUI

BBO: Zodiac also combines combinations of different groups in one preset, even with polyphonic legato. "All Strings" combines all five string ensembles in one preset, in the original voicing spread over a range of six octaves and in a denser voicing over four octaves. The octave combinations each consist of two ensembles that play in octaves, e.g. B. first and second violins, violas and cellos, cellos and double basses, etc. "Epic Legato Combo" is a legato preset in which horns, violas, cellos and two additional clarinets play long notes and legato tone connections. This wonderfully broad and soft harmony in the tenor register is best recommended for melodic tasks in the "epic style".

The playing styles of the strings contain short notes (bold and agile), long notes and legati with normal and slowly phrased finals, sforzato, sforzatissimo and tremoli. The brass section also has extra fortissimo patches, short and long crescendos (swells) and fast and slow “rips”.
