8Dio announces Adagio Orchestral String Series for Kontakt

8Dio has announced the imminent release of Adagio Violins, which is the first product of several in their Adagio String Series. 8Dio says "Adagio marks the most expressive collection of deep-sampled emotional strings ever created and allows you to create completely realistic string sequences with true emotion and passion".

Adagio Violins is the first release, which will be followed by Cellos, Violas and Basses. Adagio Violins contain three main groups of violins. Full ensemble Violin (11), Small Ensemble Violin (3) and Solo Violin (1). All groups have been extensively sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of master violinists. All groups were sampled with three different microphone positions (close, far, mixed). They employed all current generation sampling techniques (e.g. true legato, deep sampled repetitions, etc.). New techniques (e.g. 10 uniquely recorded legato types, legato with round robin, dynamic bowings, loure, etc.) were also developed to capture a higher level of emotion and humanity in the performances. The result is a passionate virtual instrument which is extremely agile to play.

Adagio Violins Vol. 1 specs:

  • Next-Generation Orchestral Violins.
  • 10 Uniquely Recorded Legato Types.
  • True Ensemble (11). True Divisi (3). True Solo Violin (1).
  • Polyphonic Legato with Round Robin (aka repetition).
  • New Philosophy. New Articulations (ex. Dynamic Bowings, Loure).
  • Sampled in Rich Church Location.
  • 3 Mic Positions: Far, Combo, Mixed (5.1 compatible).
