OVERVIEW

Virtual strings with exceptional control over sound and performance.

The EASTWEST Hollywood Strings Gold Edition is a collection of 44.1khz, 16-bit string instruments with easy control over sound and performance. Recording for Hollywood Strings took place at the famous EASTWEST STUDIO 1, the same studio where many Hollywood soundtracks and television themes were recorded using a live orchestra. Heading this project were co-producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, and Thomas Bergersen, and sound engineer Shawn Murphy.

Joining Rogers and Phoenix as co-producer on Hollywood Strings is Thomas Bergersen, a highly respected composer and orchestrator, and Phoenix's partner in trailer music company Two Steps From Hell. His extensive experience in composing for orchestras and with virtual orchestras made him a perfect fit for the multi award-winning team of Rogers and Phoenix.

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 two different categories—slurred and portamento— for amazing legato performance. Each instrument in the Gold Edition features a mid pickup mic position using Neumann KMi, Neumann KM 254, Sony C37A, Neumann U-47 mics.

Articulations
Hollywood Strings Gold Edition includes multiple finger positions for all sections including open strings. You also get 2 unique styles of legato interval sampling (slurred legato, and portamento sliding legato), sampled at 3 and 2 dynamics respectively—all with speed control. That's 5 passes of legato intervals, all sampled in long format so each note has time to breath. Basses only have slurred legato.

This collection also includes up- and down-bowed sustains, all at 4 finger positions, with at least one full octave on each string:
•5 dynamics at non-vibrato
•5 dynamics at vibrato
•3 dynamics at molto vibrato

Hollywood Strings Gold also features extensive runs, playable runs, spiccato runs for violins, sardine effect available for all patches, release trails for everything, and custom Python scripting
