EastWest Hollywood Orchestra Silver

$389.00 $199.00

The recipient of multiple major awards, these newly created EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments from producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, differ from other EastWest virtual instruments, which are optimized for keyboards. They have been specially programmed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitar’s vibrating strings. These five titles cover a wide range of musical styles and instrument families.

Description

Beautifully recorded by the award-winning Shawn Murphy, the timbre of some instruments takes the breath away, and collectively they will add sheen, depth and orchestral authenticity to your arrangements.

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)

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA is the combination of Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds, and Hollywood Orchestral Percussion; collectively the most detailed and comprehensive orchestral virtual instrument collection available. 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; or you can subscribe to EastWest’s ComposerCloud which includes Hollywood Orchestra, Hollywood Solo Instruments and over 50 other collections for less than a dollar a day!

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA offers unprecedented control over the sound and the instruments, including up to 5 mic positions (Diamond Edition) for all instruments, and is a must have compositional tool for serious composers. HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRA and HOLLYWOOD SOLO INSTRUMENTS are also available in lower cost Silver and Gold Editions, 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.

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. HOLLYWOOD STRINGS has five user-controllable mic positions, including main pickup (Decca tree), mid pickup, close pickup, surround pickup, and an alternate vintage circa 1945 RCA ribbon room pickup.

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.

HOLLYWOOD BRASS

Hollywood Brass is the most powerful, realistic and extensive brass library ever created. There is a focus and ease of use in this Virtual Instrument that is unprecedented. Hollywood Brass runs flawlessly in the new PLAY 5 engine and has 10 times the content and detail than its closest competitor, without any additional complexity or clutter. New revolutionary fanfare patches are light on computer resources, but offer the most playable and instantly gratifying results on just one midi channel. But words are just words. Once you experience Hollywood Brass, you will see that this is EastWest’s finest creation to date — (Producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergersen).

With just a touch of effort, you can create super-realistic brass parts that could fool even a golden ear. Seriously, these kinds of results speak wonders about the sampling quality and overall programming that went into making this product. Not to sound like a broken record, but East West did it again with Hollywood Brass. Bravo.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL WOODWINDS

Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds was designed to be the most detailed collection of orchestral woodwind instruments ever assembled, and offers unprecedented control over the sound of the instruments.

Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds includes: Alto Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bass Flute, Bassoon, Clarinet, Contra Bass Clarinet, Contra Bassoon, Eb Clarinet, English Horn, Flute, Flute 2, Oboe, Piccolo Flute.

Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds stands positively out from the competition, HOW is a very solid product that does not suffer from any of the “teething troubles” (such as background noises) that other products still have to overcome. 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. TOP PRODUCT AWARD for a complete, well thought out, thorough, and professional library.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION is an utterly unique orchestral percussion library that completes the Hollywood series, featuring one of America’s very best orchestral percussionists and his inspiring arsenal of instruments. Orchestral percussion staples like timpani, snare drums, cymbals, bass drums, and metals are sampled with such astounding detail and variety that you will find exactly the right sound for EVERY piece of music. HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION perfects techniques pioneered in Stormdrum 3, using unique repetition sampling techniques and 8 way round robin, that deliver a virtual live performance.

The most spectacular feature of this library is that it allows the user to create tracks of realistic sounding orchestral percussion, without having to go to a studio and hire a musician. This product is highly recommended for composers and music producers who want orchestral percussion instruments in their arsenal of composition and/or production tools. For film composers, this tool is a must.
