Big Bang Orchestra: Altair - Section Essentials

By Vienna Symphonic Library.

Big Bang Orchestra: Altair presents a different take on Vienna's Synchron full orchestra recordings and the perfect enhancement to the tutti performances of Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda. BBO: Altair provides completely new recordings of short and long notes that are played by the individual sections of the orchestra, as well as by all of them together (tutti).

The appeal of this BBO Pack lies in the particular way the tutti performances and the sections of strings, woodwinds, and brass were recorded: In the first pass, each note was played by the entire orchestra. Immediately afterwards, each section played this note with the same phrasing and style. It's as though the entire orchestra played the notes together, but in fact they didn't – you have separate recordings of strings, woodwinds, and brass ensembles available that you can combine and orchestrate any way you like.

You can easily switch between the various registrations in the Vienna Synchron Player that offers the tutti patch, the individual patches of strings, woodwinds, and brass, as well as combinations of strings/woodwinds, strings/brass, and woodwinds/brass. They all mix and match perfectly, and with the corresponding mixer presets they also blend seamlessly with the performances of BBO: Andromeda, as well as all the other Big Bang Orchestra Packs.

What's more, if you have BBO: Andromeda, BBO: Altair also provides you with slightly different tutti articulations. They're similar in sound and phrasing, but not the same, offering more variety and depth to your tutti performances as well as more options for layering.

Microphone Setup

BBO: Altair uses the same microphone configuration that was used for recording BBO: Andromeda, giving you access to a total of eleven mic setups that the Vienna Synchron Player provides you with:

  • Main (Decca tree stereo).
  • Main (Decca tree center).
