With this bundle you get the complete string section of the full symphonic orchestra. ORCHESTRAL STRINGS I includes 14 violins and 10 violas, while ORCHESTRAL STRINGS II offers 8 cellos and 6 double basses. Both collections cover an enormously wide variety of playing techniques built on the foundation of the essential string orchestra, whether you're recording Mozart's "Kleine Nachtmusik" or your latest movie score.

Included Collections:

Orchestral Strings I

Violin ensemble (14 players) - Viola ensemble (10 players)

The largest ensemble recorded at the Silent Stage was the violin section. The 14 violinists are headed by Christian Eisenberger, who in his esteemed international concert work has collaborated with artists and conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Martha Argerich, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Herbert von Karajan, Gidon Kremer, Kent Nagano, Roger Norrington, Murray Perahia, Andras Schiff, Georg Solti, and many others. The ensemble of 10 violas is headed by Anett Homoki who is a member of the Vienna Chamber Philharmony as well as of the Volksoper Vienna.

The string sections of the Vienna Instruments offer an extremely wide range of articulations. The special qualities of these instruments are the result of a multitude of Performances. With larger ensembles, the random effect of articulations like Performance Trills or fast Legatos is especially pronounced, lending those Performance Patches remarkable authenticity in conjunction with the new Performance algorithms in the Vienna Instruments. The larger the ensemble, the more intense the random effect, that is, the natural "inexactitude" among the musicians when changing from one tone to the next. This effect gets extra attention with the "Repetition Performance Pizzicatos" - an innovation only available with the large string ensembles and recorded in two different tempos.

Many user requests for additional samples were also answered, for example, the short staccatos, the expressive Interval Legatos, espressivo con sordino, as well as extensions of the tonal ranges for sustains and staccatos.

Orchestral Strings II

Cello ensemble (8 players) - Double bass ensemble (6 players)

The articulations of the cello and double bass ensembles naturally correspond to those of the Vienna Instruments Orchestral Strings I. Here, too, new playing styles were added which were not available in the Pro Edition, such as fast Interval Performances in legato, marcato and spiccato styles, Performance Trills, Repetition Performances "harsh", spiccato, and pizzicato, plus artificial harmonics as well as various ponticello articulations - tones played near the bridge. Both ensembles' tonal ranges were extended, the cellos' staccatos and sustains now extending up to A5, and the double basses up to G4. The leading voices of the two string sections are Argentinian Ruben Dubrovsky, founder of the Vienna Bach Consort, and Martin Deuring, an internationally active solo bassist and founding member of the chamber music ensemble "Ensemble Plus".
