Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda gives you all the articulations of the free Big Bang Orchestra, newly and uniquely recorded with more sonic and expressive flexibility, along with many more articulations that were not included in the free version.

To give you more freedom to modify your overall orchestra sound, the close mic positions of low strings, high strings, woodwinds, horns, trumpets and low brass can be adjusted separately in the integrated mixer of the Synchron Player. For the fortissimo low brass section, you can choose between an aggressive, bold sound and a softer, rounder tone. For more expedient orchestration, you can simply add or remove the high piccolo. Depending on your arrangement, you may choose whether or not to include its penetrating tone commonly used in tutti arrangements.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Massive “tutti” orchestra for super-quick large orchestrations
  • More than 7 times bigger (11 GB) then the free Big Bang Orchestra
  • Multiple microphone positions, additional close mic positions
  • Shorter notes with precise attacks, optimized repetition notes
  • Wide variety of long notes, more dynamic articulations
  • Removable piccolo

More Articulations

The short notes of Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda are even shorter than the ones included with the free version, with a very precise attack. This patch also includes optimized repetition notes that deliver extremely authentic results when playing repeated notes quickly. The long notes offer a variety of articulations, including espressivo, soft, sfz and sffz. The sforzatissimo patch reveals the especially awe-inspiring force of a large orchestra when every musician is playing on top of their lungs. The “Dynamics” category includes two different lengths of crescendos. Our new Release Sample Technology adds the correct sound even when the crescendos are played shorter.  Special articulations such as tremolos, flutter tongue, minor and major trills as well as half tone glissandos round out the articulations of Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda.

Mixer Overview

The factory mixer presets are based on the room microphones, leaving the section microphones disabled. Section microphones (further to the right in the mixer) can be added to emphasize the power of certain sections. Activate additional channels by clicking on the channel name. This will load the samples required for playback, and the faders have been set to good starting points to customize your mix. Change the level, panning, delay and channel EQ settings for each channel, and of course you are free to insert any of the built-in FX plug-ins to further optimize your sound.

MICS

Room Mix Presets

The most resource-friendly presets: Based on a room mix we created from all available room microphones, you will get an impressive sound that will help you to manifest your orchestral ideas on every device.

Stereo Decca Tree Presets

The "Decca tree" is the microphone tree that is the heart and soul of every orchestral recording. It consists of a main stereo channel and a mono center channel and captures the details of the room from the conductor’s perspective.

Surround to Stereo Presets

Enjoy the massive sound of all available room microphones, including the decca tree mics, down-mixed to a stereo signal. You will get a great impression of the huge sound our Synchron Stage Vienna is known for.

Surround Presets

If you insert your Synchron Player as a surround plug-in in your sequencer, these presets will provide the starting point for your surround setup.

Processed Presets

We have added some compression using the integrated compressor to achieve an even more powerful sound of the Big Bang Orchestra. Feel free to add more FX as you create the symphonic sound of your desire.
