From rich, morphing soundbeds to classic orchestral duties and everywhere in between, Augmented Orchestra is a powerful, inspirational and easy to master library for musicians of any background.
Deep Chromatic Multi-Sampling of a World-Class Orchestra
The story of UVI Augmented Orchestra begins in the recording hall accompanied by over 100 musicians, with a deep chromatic multi-sampling of a complete symphony orchestra. We recorded with both conventional and unconventional approaches, adding a number of orchestrated chords and FX to the library.
Strings, Brass, and Woodwinds are arranged creatively with low and high sections to provide a full playable range across the keyboard, as well, all instruments were recorded with both close mono and wide decca tree stereo allowing morphing between close and far positions.
Over 70 hours of recordings made across dozens of sessions went into creating the acoustic instruments for Augmented Orchestra, ending with 11 sections arranged as follows:
Strings Low Arranged with 10x Cellos and 6x Double Bass
Strings High Arranged with 14x Violins 1, 12x Violins 2, and 10x Violas
String Ensemble Complement of both Strings Low and High
Brass Low Arranged with 5x Trombones, 3x Bass Trombones, and 2x Tubas
Brass High Arranged with 4x Trumpets, and 8x French Horns
Brass Ensemble Complement of both Brass Low and High
Winds Low Arranged with 3x Contrabassoons, 2x Bassoons, and 3x Bass Clarinets
Winds High Arranged with 3x Oboes, 3x Clarinets, 2x Flutes, and 1 Piccolo
Winds Ensemble Complement of both Winds Low and High
Orchestral FX, and Orchestral Chords Both arranged with 44x Strings, 12x Brass, and 8x Winds
Sound, Incredibly Designed
The sounds of these virtuoso symphonic instrumentalists are then melded with those of cutting-edge synthesis, acoustic recordings with modern and classical sound design techniques, reamping, layering, and processing with tape. Organized in 8 categories, the additional sources provide an incredible creative toolbox:
Tape Orchestra Resampled orchestral instrument stacks through half-speed tape machine
Modeled Orchestral instruments and ensembles created on physical modeling hardware synthesizers
String Machines Two early string synthesizers (ARP Solina & Freeman Symphonizer) sampled through a multi-amp setup with vintage analog chorus and effect pedals
Synth Stacks Up to 8 vintage digital synthesizers stacked together and mixed through SSL hardware
Processed Creative and deeply offline-processed orchestral and synth sounds
Synth Textures An eclectic collection of sounds from vintage analog and modern synthesizers
FM Exploration Evolving and detailed timbres and atmospheres from an extraordinarily rare FM synth
Waveforms An eclectic collection of sounds from vintage analog and modern synthesizers
A Sound for any Mood
Many thousands of samples later, with an incredible library of sounds now in-engine, the possibilities of UVI Augmented Orchestra begin to unfold in the hands of our sound designers. Uniquely inspired, they probed the vast potential combinations to create a formidable library of stunning presets, displaying extensive range in style, form, and depth.
The results are presented in categories including: Orchestra, Augmented Layers, Natural, Action, Small Sections, Hybrid, Electronic, Pulses, Ambient, and Heavy. In all, over 500 professionally crafted presets are ready to be explored, deconstructed, and maligned for your creative pleasure, with every aspect of their design exposed and fully editable. From sparse and sophisticated to full-range modulated madness, Augmented Orchestra's range is versatile and unapologetically unique.
An Expansive Sonic Playground
The sounds we've prepared are only the beginning. A deep and powerful instrument that's both easy to learn and use awaits your creative touch. Dig into an intuitive UI, and explore an extraordinarily diverse range of sounds.
Using the well-understood conventions of subtractive synthesis each part provides expressive control over amplitude, dynamic multi-mode filters, voicing, numerous effects, a creative arpeggiator, and extensive modulation possibilities with an all-new multi-source/target matrix driven in part by 2 fully customizable LFOs and Step Lanes per part.
If that weren't enough the layers of each part can be crossfaded both manually or with modulation, allowing for a dynamic, expressive, and ever-changing landscape of sound to be created with the flick of a fader. Move seamlessly through timbres, patterns, and effect configurations to create dazzling sounds that give voice to narrative cues, or help chart your musical journey. All of this is waiting to be layered, tweaked, sequenced, and processed with the included collection of high-quality effects.
The latest in our Augmented series, UVI Augmented Orchestra is an inspiring and massively capable instrument, a true powerhouse for those looking for new acoustic, hybrid, and even electronic sounds, and a deep, dynamic, environment for exploration.
