The obvious use of 9 beautifully maintained harps, playing both on the scoring stage and in the galleries at Air studios, would be to engulf your listener in a cascade of sweeping glissandi. Yes, if you're a blockbuster composer working on fantasy and magical material, once you've had nine you're unlikely to go back. Swarm 2 delivers some staggering epic glissandi resonating around this world renowned hall. The plucks and plucked harmonics offer a hauntingly epic melodic universe that will happily straddle larger strident orchestral arrangements at all dynamics.
However, the real magic of this library lies in the slow, fast and at times almost granular tremolandi that range from a soft choral sea of calm to a ferocious rain storm. Great for anything other-worldly, science fiction, mystery and horror. The longs strings, with full speed and dynamic control, have an inherent kinetic movement and energy even when playing simple and slow chords. For us, this is a very cool tool to provide you with new pastures of inspiration.
If you're tired of your existing orchestral writing palette, or your director wants something new but your producer doesn't want to take any risks. If you're looking for something inspiring or something that you can hold for an age without your listener tiring. If you feel your sample set is dry, featureless and still, or you need to add motion and texture as a layer to your existing orchestral samples then it may be time for a Swarm!
