East West Hollywood Strings Gold Edition Mac PC Instrument

EastWest Hollywood Strings Gold Edition features a huge collection of beautifully recorded string instruments, with extensive control over the sound and performance. The recording of Hollywood Strings took place at EastWest Studio 1, the same studio where many Hollywood soundtracks and television themes have been recorded with a live orchestra.

Co-producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergerse set out to make the best library ever. Sound engineer Shawn Murphy, who has recorded and mixed the scores for more than 300 feature films was in charge of the recording. The exceptional sounds of the virtual strings are the result of having a top sound engineer, a beautiful-sounding recording studio, an incredible selection of microphones, the best analog and digital recording equipment, and top Hollywood string players.

The library provides a large scoring-stage sound along with a more intimate scoring-stage sound. Hollywood Strings has many new features including the finger position 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.

Hollywood Strings Gold Edition is 16-bit, with one mic positon (mid-tree, no divisi) and all articulations except bow change legato. Upgrades to the Hollywood Strings Diamond Edition will be effortless as all articulations are included in the Gold Edition, and can be done at any time.

Extensive multi-dynamic true legato has been sampled for all sections in 2 different categories – slurred and portamento, resulting in unsurpassed legato performance. The library features a single microphone position (mid-tree).
