This String Section Pack brings the realism and artistry of Synchron Strings Pro to the Big Bang Orchestra. BBO: Xenia is packed with vivid ensemble performances, featuring six acclaimed bass players from the Synchron Stage Orchestra who perform frequently on diverse productions from Hollywood film scores to movie trailers, BBC documentaries and classical recordings.
The homogeneous, well balanced sound of this cohesive, well-rehearsed bass ensemble was captured at Synchron Stage Vienna where the outstanding acoustics and the team's engineering know-how yield recordings that effortlessly transform your arrangements into organically passionate pieces of music.
All articulations were taken from Synchron Strings Pro, including short notes (bold, agile, fortissimo), long notes with light and strong vibrato (blendable) as well as played espressivo, legatos with light and strong vibrato as well as with marcato attacks, sforzato, several swells, pizzicatos, and tremolos. The included measured tremolos, which are fast note repetitions at 120, 130, 140 and 160 bpm, can be synced to the host tempo. BBO: Xenia also includes Vienna's unique soft releases of long notes, where the musicians carefully play slightly longer note fade-outs that sound very musical without having to use MIDI controllers to shape the ending of a tone.
The included mixer presets deliver a perfect sound out-of-the-box that integrates seamlessly with all the other modules of the Big Bang Orchestra series. Room Mixes feature an excellent blend of overhead Decca tree mics and surround mics mixed to a stereo signal that's light on CPU and RAM. Other Mixer Presets offer a combination of mic signals that you can adjust to your needs and liking. These include "Decca Tree" and "Surround to Stereo Downmix" presets, the latter feeding the surround mics to the stereo signal for a richer and wider sound. Also included are "Surround" presets for immersive audio setups such as Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D.
