Win ProjectSAM's Symphobia 2!
Thursday, December 2, 2010
When ProjectSAM announced the release of Symphobia 2 back in August this year, it was met with much excited anticipation by those composers who had been using the original Symphobia since its release two years previously.
Having been dubbed ‘truly outstanding’ and ‘genuinely inspirational’, Symphobia provided all the wild rips and improves, combined strings and brass unisons, tutti hits, mad effects, dreamy and percussive sound design textures needed to score any on-screen event from a minor traffic collision to the destruction of the universe. For many composers, it was difficult to imagine needing anything else in their orchestral palette!
And then along came the announcement of Symphobia 2 – and the question ‘What more could it possibly contain?!’
Symphobia 2 sees the strings having been extended to include new spiccatos, major and minor trills, plus long and short expressive notes and crescendos. The horns, too, have been enlarged and now feature eight players. New sustains and staccatos have also been added to the full orchestra section, as has a meaty ‘wide octave’ articulation. More cinematic effects, a cleverly constructed range of multis and, last but not least, a new ‘Dystopia’ section – ProjectSAM’s dark side which features hits, spheres, scapes and risers created by processing and tweaking the Symphobia recordings.
The instrument has recently received its first wave of reviews with words such as ‘magnificent’, ‘an absolute joy’ ‘unsurpassed’ and ‘a score writer’s dream’ frequenting the pages of the UK audio production magazines. Hmm, surely that’s an excuse for a celebratory competition? Luckily, the generous people at ProjectSAM agree and have given us a copy of Symphobia 2 to giveaway in our December competition!
