In VSL Big Bang Orchestra: Neptune, the “tutti” ensemble of all the woodwinds brings together 13 musicians with their diverse instruments, from the piccolo to the contrabassoon. Recording the rich and colourful sound of these assorted instruments as a group is ideal for showcasing the delicate balance and blend of the entire woodwind choir, particularly when employing Vienna’s finest players.
Big Bang Orchestra Neptune includes “tutti” recordings of all 13 woodwind instruments that correspond exactly to the ones included in the Big Bang Orchestra modules, where the entire orchestra is playing at once, e.g., Andromeda, Black Eye and Capricorn. Taking a different approach, BBO: Orion offers four separate ensembles of flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons, with three musicians playing together in each ensemble.
Key Features of BBO Neptune:
- Ensemble of 13 woodwinds, playing in unison and octaves
- Perfectly balanced blend of the entire woodwind choir
- Multiple microphone positions, additional close mic positions
- Variations of short & long notes, espressivo, sfz, sffz, swells, flutter tongues, etc.
- Exceptional acoustics of the large Synchron Stage Vienna
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.
Via key switching you have the option to remove the piccolo and its clearly audible high tone from the tutti sound, if you wish.
The included articulations with up to three velocity layers correspond to those of the other tutti BBO modules such as Andromeda, with variations of short notes, long notes, repetitions, espressivo, soft swells, sforzando, sforzatissimo, crescendos, flutter tongues, trills and fast repetitions.
The woodwinds of BBO: Neptune are completely new recordings that can be seamlessly combined with the tutti recordings of the other Big Bang Orchestra modules to add even more and varied colors. As always, the Synchron Player offers a wide variety of mixer presets that blend perfectly well with all the other BBO sections and ensembles. In addition, the “Processed” category offers mixer presets such as “Compressed”, “Sparkling”, “Howling Woods”, “Outer Space Woods” and more.
