HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA offers unprecedented control over the sound and the instruments and is a must have compositional tool for serious composers. HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA is available here in lower cost Gold and Silver Editions (please see More Info for further details), including the best stereo mic position chosen by the producers.

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.

Produced by DOUG ROGERS, NICK PHOENIX, AND THOMAS BERGERSEN. Sound Engineered by SHAWN MURPHY (ACADEMY AWARD, C.A.S. (Cinema Audio Society), BAFTA, and EMMY award-winning sound engineer).

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.

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 was 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.

Truly the holy grail of orchestral virtual instruments 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.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA and HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS are the culmination of over seven years of recording, editing, and programming, and are must have compositional tools for serious composers.

HOLLYWOOD STRINGS


HOLLYWOOD STRINGS

HOLLYWOOD STRINGS has many groundbreaking features not found in any other collection. Finger position is, for the first time, controllable by the user, so you can play as far up the strings as you want, and get a fuller more romantic Hollywood sound. Vibrato intensity and extensive dynamics are controllable by the user. 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.

Includes: 1st Violins, 2nd Violins, Violas, Celli, Basses

"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

In addition, HOW offers a wide assortment of instruments. The HOW Gold Edition provides all of the instruments to those with a smaller budget (without the alternate microphone positions) – and the competition doesn't offer this possibility at all.
