Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda - Essentials
BBO: Andromeda is a powerful expansion pack for Vienna’s free Big Bang Orchestra. Andromeda gives you all the articulations of the free Big Bang Orchestra, newly and uniquely recorded with more sonic and expressive flexibility, along with many more articulations that were not included in the free version.
To give you more freedom to modify your overall orchestra sound, the close mic positions of low strings, high strings, woodwinds, horns, trumpets and low brass can be adjusted separately in the integrated mixer of the Synchron Player. For the fortissimo low brass section, you can choose between an aggressive, bold sound and a softer, rounder tone.
For more expedient orchestration, you can simply add or remove the high piccolo. Depending on your arrangement, you may choose whether or not to include its penetrating tone commonly used in tutti arrangements.
The short notes of BBO: Andromeda are even shorter than the ones included with the free version, with a very precise attack. This patch also includes optimized repetition notes that deliver extremely authentic results when playing repeated notes quickly. The long notes offer a variety of articulations, including espressivo, soft, sfz and sffz. The sforzatissimo patch reveals the especially awe-inspiring force of a large orchestra when every musician is playing on top of their lungs. The “Dynamics” category includes two different lengths of crescendos. Vienna’s new Release Sample Technology adds the correct sound even when the crescendos are played shorter. Special articulations such as tremolos, flutter tongue, minor and major trills as well as half tone glissandos round out the articulations of Big Bang Orchestra: Andromeda.

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.
