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.
Free Con Sordino Expansion Set - Ends 1st Feb
This Bonus Pack with beautifully enigmatic and gentle tutti performances is available for all registered users of Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda. It includes all the basic articulations, played very softly by the entire orchestra, in the range from pianississimo to mezzo piano.
All string and brass ensembles play con sordino (muted), while the woodwind ensemble consists of different instruments to avoid the higher registers that would stand out from the ensemble. It includes two alto flutes, one bass flute, two English horns, one heckelphone, two bass clarinets, one contrabass clarinet, two bassoons and one contrabassoon.
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.

- 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

WHAT IS THE BIG BANG ORCHESTRA SERIES?
VSL's Big Bang Orchestra series is an excellent entry into the world of Vienna Symphonic Library instruments. Create large orchestrations in no time. Beef up your existing tracks by adding some massive tutti layers. Inject some inspiration into your composing process just by pressing a few notes and letting the huge sound work its magic.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
