Adagio is the air, the flow, the burn and the sorrow of symphonic strings. 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 a new-generation orchestral sample library and the most expressive collection of deep-sampled strings ever created.
Adagio Violas VST Vol. 1 contain three main groups of Violas. Full Ensemble Violas (7), Divisi Violas (3) and Solo Viola (1). All groups have been extensively sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of great viola players from the San Francisco Bay Area. All groups were sampled with three different microphone positions (close, far, mixed) and 8Dio deployed the same unique sampling techniques they applied to all Adagio products, including round robin legato and the ability to connect legato effortlessly with other articulations like loure (floating notes) and dynamic bowings (expressive notes). They also recorded new specific viola articulations (ex. 3 different types of sordino spiccato, deep-sampled sordino loure and sordino bowings etc).
Ensemble, Divisi & Solo
Adagio Violas contains several different types of expressive legato for both ensemble, divisi and solo viola. The legato intervals were sampled up to 3 times round robin allowing for an even greater degree of realism. Adagio Violas also contains an unprecedented amount of dynamic bowings and loure. 8Dio recorded over 45 separate dynamic bowings covering both regular and muted (sordino) strings. The same concept was applied to the tempo-synced loure and the library holds 17 separate types of loure – also covering both regular and muted (sordino) strings.
Extensive Short Notes
Adagio Violas contains several types of spiccatos (including 3 types of sordino spiccatos), marcatos, marcato sordino, staccatos, pizzicato, bartok pizzicato and all core articulations sampled at 8-10 round robins. There's also advanced trills, tremolos, non-vibrato to vibrato control and advanced legato multis – giving you the ability to use several legato types at the same time.
