UVI has announced the release of release Augmented Orchestra, saying:
Augmented Orchestra is a bold new hybrid orchestral instrument that melds a world-class orchestra with processed and synthetic sounds to deliver imaginative timbres and breathtaking soundscapes.
Sporting powerful new engine enhancements and an exclusive library of new material, including hundreds of expertly designed instrument layers, UVI Augmented Orchestra is an expansive sonic playground ready to inspire.
Augmented Orchestra gives users a creative environment to explore and design completely new instruments. Starting with a deep chromatic multi-sampling of a world-class symphony orchestra, recorded both by section and in ensembles, ready to twist, morph, and synthesize into entirely new sonic amalgams with a vast collection of electronic and processed sound sources, and perfectly suited for use as a stand-alone acoustic orchestral instrument.
Powerful engine and DSP enhancements are at the heart of Augmented Orchestra, giving users advanced performance, morphing, modulation, and phrasing capabilities. The multi-part, multi- layer design provides deep sound design potential, letting you effortlessly move between timbres, arpeggiator patterns, and effect configurations to transform your sound, creating everything from subtle transformations to completely new sounding instruments.
An artistically curated library delivers over 400 exquisitely recorded sources, ranging from orchestral strings, brass, woodwinds and ensembles, to analog, digital, and string synthesizers, along with creative categories such as Tape Orchestra, Modeled, Processed, and Synth Textures. Combine them to realize your own creations, or use them individually as high-quality conventional instruments.
Showcasing Augmented Orchestra's vast sonic range is a collection of over 500 hand-crafted presets. Created by UVI's renowned sound design team, these unique voices move from sparse and sophisticated to full-range modulated soundscapes. Ready to play or deconstruct and repurpose, users are encouraged to explore a wealth of inspirational factory sounds.
