Overview

Rich, deeply sampled orchestral cello library with 35,011 samples.

Adagio is the air, the flow, the burn and the sorrow of symphonic strings. Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy Nominated Composer and Orchestrator, Colin O’Malley, 8Dio Adagio String Series is a new-generation orchestral sample library and the most expressive collection of deep-sampled strings ever created.

Adagio Cellos, Vol. 1.5 VST contain three main groups of cellos. Full Ensemble Cello (6), Divisi Cello (3) and Solo Cello (1). All groups have been extensively sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of great cellists from the San Francisco Bay Area. All groups were sampled with three different microphone positions (close, far, mixed) and 8Dio deployed the same unique sampling techniques they applied to Adagio Violins, including round robin legato and the ability to connect legato effortlessly with other articulations like loure (floating notes) and dynamic bowings (expressive notes). New specific cello articulations were also recorded (ex. tenuto and sordino tenuto, expressive detache, measured tremolos with open strings, deep-sampled sordino loure and sordino bowings, new fx etc).

Ensemble, Divisi & Solo
Adagio Cellos contains several different types of expressive legato for both ensemble, divisi and solo cello. The legato intervals were sampled up to 3 times round robin allowing for an even greater degree of realism. Adagio Cellos also contains an unprecedented amount of dynamic bowings and loure. 8Dio recorded over 40 separate dynamic bowings covering both regular and muted (sordino) strings. The same concept was applied to trier tempo-synced loure and the library holds over 30 separate types of loure – also covering both regular and muted (sordino) strings.

Extensive Short Notes
Adagio Cellos is also dedicated to short notes – it has several types of spiccatos (including sordino spiccatos), marcatos, staccatos, pizzicato, bartok pizz, con legno and all core articulations sampled at 8-10 round robins. In addition there's advanced trills, tremolos, measured tremolos and open-string tremolos.
