Vienna Instruments Releases Appassionata Strings 2
Vienna Instruments has released a sequel to their Appassionata Strings collection. The new Appassionata Strings 2 features almost all of the articulations that the first Collection includes, but played muted.
Appassionata Strings II offers various facets of sustains and Legato Performances, but also includes articulations such as accented interval notes, spiccatos, staccatos, various Repetition Performances, trills, and much more. They also include Viennaâ€™s innovative â€œout-of-tune-samplesâ€ where various players of the ensemble carefully correct their intonation as the tone progresses. Mirroring what actually happens in live orchestral performances, this is an effective technique for creating heightened realism and expression.
Appassionata Strings II is a virtual instrument comprising 10.7 GB of samples in 24 bit/44.1 kHz that works stand-alone or as a plug-in with AU (OS X), RTAS (OS X) and VST (Win XP, OS X) hosts.
Vienna Instruments’ Appassionata Strings 2 costs $515 / €395 for the Standard Library; $185 /
€145 for the Extended Library; and $700 / €540 for the Full Library. More information on Vienna Instruments’ Appassionata Strings 2.
