Deeply sampled Aleatoric Ensemble String FX for the CAGE Chaos Engine.

Welcome to CAGE – one of the most comprehensive collections of Orchestral Effects ever created. CAGE (Custom Aleatoric Group Effects) series is produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy nominated composer and orchestrator, Colin O’Malley. CAGE comes in three dedicated volumes for Strings, Brass and Woodwinds and each volume contains nine microphone positions. The microphones are divided into two core groups: Ensemble (Close, Mixed, Decca, Far, Wide) and Divisi (Spot Mic 1, 2, 3 and 4). So whether you want full ensemble or more chamber (divisi) oriented FX – its all there at your finger tips.

The CAGE Strings Edition contains an articulation list second to none and comes in high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz format. The String Edition contains over 1100 articulations and it is near impossible to find an effect not covered. The incredible depth of articulations is supported by 8Dio's custom CAGE Chaos Engine, which contains over 80.000 lines of code. The CAGE Chaos Engine allows you to take complete control of the samples and you can control over 1.500 sample parameters with a single click. In addition you can also randomize all the rack-fx (ex. trance-gate, filters, EQ).

So imagine having the deepest set of articulations with an incredibly intuitive and powerful Chaos Engine. An infinity of possibilities.

The entire user-interface (UI) was designed in gorgeous 3D and in a way that allows both newcomers and experts to get rolling in a matter of seconds. CAGE is using a variety of components from 8Dio's exclusive V8P series and contains over 80.000 lines of code giving you the ultimate flexibility and playability. One example is the ability to make round robin chains between different articulations, so you can build your own sets of FX chains.

But most importantly CAGE is the among the most comprehensive collections of orchestral FX ever done. Take something as simple a “string riser”. It’s no longer matter of whether you want a rising string sound. It is a matter of whether you want it in normal legato glissando or perhaps with tremolo motion to it – maybe you want more of a trill based glissando or maybe you just want a horrific grinding string variation. CAGE has it all and is the definitive collection of orchestral FX.
