Recorded by 11-time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. Johnson, the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA was honored with Sound On Sound’s Reader’s Choice Award an unprecedented 3-times, and the very first orchestral collection to be recorded in a “state of the art” concert hall where orchestras mainly perform. Every detail of the recording hall is captured with incredible precision and detail, adding realism and shimmer to every note. You can create convincing orchestral performances with very little time and effort, and the natural ambience will make it feel as though the instruments are playing back live.
COMPLETE CONTROL OVER YOUR ORCHESTRA
To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions: close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, you can mix these sounds together to create virtually any placement or level of depth desired. This all but eliminates the need for artificial reverb, drastically cutting down on the amount of time you spend getting your ambience settings just right. Every major adjustable feature can be controlled from a single interface, including reverb, mic positions, filtering, and section volume. If you’re looking for warmth and the ability to easily manipulate nearly any aspect of the instruments’ performances to your heart’s content, Symphonic Orchestra gives you every tool you need in one place.
No section of the orchestra has such a diverse set of tone colors as the woodwinds, and they’re all subtle enough that they blend extremely well with the string section (they can also double the brass, but in a live setting, the brass section often overpowers the woodwinds). They’re best suited to woodwind ensemble passages and thickening up key moments in the strings and brass.
