HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA and HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS are truly the holy grail of orchestral virtual instruments and the culmination of over seven years of recording, editing, and programming, and is a must have compositional tool for serious composers.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA and HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS were released in sections as each section of the orchestra was completed, and have already received multiple major awards from the international press, including Electronic Musician's "Editor's Choice Award" and Future Music's "Platinum Award" for its unprecedented detail, superior true legato, sound quality, and sound control.

This collection includes the Gold Editions of both Hollywood Orchestra and Hollywood Solo Instruments.

 

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA is the combination of Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds, and Hollywood Orchestral Percussion; collectively the most detailed and comprehensive orchestral virtual instrument collection available. Hollywood Orchestra and each of the Hollywood Orchestra individual sections can be purchased separately (please click on each title to go to their individual product pages).

It offers unprecedented control over the sound and the instruments and is a must have compositional tool for serious composers.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA includes EastWest's PLAY 5 64-bit software, that includes powerful scripting for ease of use, and more user control than any other collection — all recorded in the famous EASTWEST STUDIO 1, the home of major Hollywood Soundtracks and Television Themes.

 

HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS

In addition to HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA, the production team recently added HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS which includes Hollywood Harp, Hollywood Solo Cello, and Hollywood Solo Violin. Each of the Hollywood Solo Instruments can be purchased separately (please click on each title to go to their individual product pages).

These Hollywood Solo Instruments (Harp, Solo Cello, and Solo Violin) were recorded, engineered, and produced with the superior level of sound quality and expression the EastWest brand is known for.

Each of the instruments were recorded in Studio 1 at EastWest Studios, the same studio Hollywood Orchestra was recorded in. This gives the complete Hollywood Orchestral series a consistent sound and ambience, which emulates a traditional large studio orchestra.

Extensive multi-dynamic true legato has been sampled for all sections in three different categories: slurred, portamento, and bow change. This results in unsurpassed legato performance that has never been available.

"From the violins down to the basses, these string sections have a lovely sound, texture and feel, with a rich, full symphonic sound and an opulent quality that comes from combining great players with a great sound engineer. There's no doubt that the fabulous sound, musical versatility and depth of expression of HS place it in the highest echelon of professional string libraries. If you're serious about orchestral sampling, you won't want to let this impressive strings library pass you by." - SOUND ON SOUND
