The woodwinds of VSL Big Bang Orchestra: Orion 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 colours. As always, the Synchron Player offers mixer presets that blend perfectly well with all the other BBO sections and ensembles. What’s more, the “Processed” category offers mixer presets such as “Compressed”, “Sparkling”, “Distorted Delays” and many more.
The woodwind sections of the Big Bang Orchestra are available in two modules. BBO: Orion offers four separate ensembles of flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons, with three musicians playing together in each ensemble. Taking a different approach, BBO: Neptune includes “tutti” recordings of 13 woodwind instruments, from the piccolo to the contrabassoon, all playing together.
Key Features of BBO Orion:
- Four woodwind ensembles, recorded at Synchron Stage Vienna
- Three musicians per ensemble playing in unison
- Multiple microphone positions, additional close mic positions
- Real legatos, espressivo, swells, flutter tongues, fast repetitions, 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.
For each ensemble, all three musicians performed together and were recorded together with an array of microphones, including individual close mics for each ensemble, mid mics, Decca tree (left - center - right), surround and high surround outriggers.
All ensembles include a wealth of articulations, with a special focus on the beautifully performed legatos that are available in two variations, regular and espressivo. Other playing techniques include short notes, long notes, repetitions, espressivo, soft swells, sforzando, sforzatissimo, crescendos, flutter tongues (for flutes and clarinets) and fast repetitions. These are available in three tempos (120, 140, 160 bpm) but they can always be synced to your host tempo using the Synchron Player’s time-stretch feature.
