Adagietto is a powerful, easy-to-use, full string ensemble set based on 8Dio's deep-sampled and highly expressive Adagio String Series. Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy nominated composer and orchestrator, Colin O’Malley, 8Dio Adagio String Series is the definitive collection of deep-sampled emotional strings ever created.
Adagietto is the bread-and-butter of Adagio. It just works. No hassle. Play and Go. Everything is neatly laid out as full ensemble patches, so you can just start composing. The new 3-way legato system is based on your velocity (Slur Legato, Normal Legato and Fast Legato). So you can either compose quickly with the entire ensemble or do more delicate orchestrations with the individual sections. Adagietto is all about ease of use, playability and giving you the shortest route to great results.
The entire collection was sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of classical string players. All groups were sampled with two different microphone positions (close/far). 8Dio employed all current generation sampling techniques (ex. true legato, deep sampled repetitions etc). New techniques were also developed to capture a higher level of emotion and humanity in the performances. The result is a passionate virtual instrument which is extremely agile to play.
11 Unique Types of Legato
Adagietto contains 11 uniquely recorded types of legato to cover all your needs for true transitional string performances. The legato performances were modeled around lyrical melodies, capturing the spirit of the most beloved composers of our time. You can control the legato for each individual section (Violins, Violas, Cellos & Basses) and all the legato are designed in a completely intuitive way. You don’t have to use key switches or mod wheel, since it's built into all of the velocities. When you play softly you will trigger the slow/portamento legato. When you played normal you will trigger the common Village legato and when you play harder you will trigger our faster Instinct legato. It just works.
Control The Ensemble
Adagietto is all about Ensemble Strings. 8Dio has programmed everything so it just works off the keys. There are two sets of gorgeous ensemble sustains – both normal and sordino (muted). AS well as all the ensemble short notes you could wish for in the form of spiccato, staccato, marcato, pizzicato and bartok pizzicato. You also have ensemble tremolo, half- and whole note trills – and four sets of 8Dio's unique dynamic bowings. The dynamic bowings are naturally swelling sustains, which can be impossible to emulate with conventional crossfade. The dynamic bowings come in both normal and sordino (muted).
