Appassionata Strings II Header

A gentle giant

These muted large string ensembles are a special gem for everybody who is looking for the sweet, passionate sound of a romantic Hollywood-type love story. The sequel to Appassionata Strings I offers almost all of the articulations that the first Collection includes, but played “con sordino”. Their broad and emotive cinematic sound integrates perfectly well into a variety of musical styles, from pop environments to symphonic arrangements, from emotional ballads to film scores, from pure string beds to complete orchestral works.

The Appassionata Strings II offer various facets of sustains and Legato Performances, but also include articulations such as accented interval notes, spiccatos, staccatos, various Repetition Performances, trills, and much more. They also include Vienna’s innovative “out-of-tune-samples” where various players of the ensemble carefully correct their intonation as the tone progresses. Mirroring what actually happens in live orchestral performances, this is a very effective technique for creating heightened realism and expression. The Appassionata Strings’ bass section of 10 instruments consists of 6 five-string and 4 four-string basses, giving the low end a deep and rich flavor.

Appassionata Strings II - Instruments: Violin ensemble (20 players), Viola ensemble (14 players), Cello ensemble (12 players) & Double Bass ensemble (10 players)

Ich nutze sie für Filmscoring. Hierbei reichere ich meine Streicher mit den gedämpften Streichern an, was ihnen eine vollen und warmen Klang verleiht. Für emotionale Stellen insbesondere super. Top!

“Vienna Symphonic Library has been the center of my orchestral sample library for several years now. I go to their library first every time I create an orchestral template when I´m beginning each film I score. And my demos sound great. I recommend this library to anybody getting into film scoring.”

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
