Once again, Germany’s premier orchestral team unites to bring the sounds of the orchestra to your sampler. The statistics of this release are impressive: a 16-violin ensemble performs around 3500 different licks and 200 multisamples, spread across four CDs. The idea is to provide a library of useful phrases for pop and dance production. There are three main phrase categories: first, and most obvious, are fast (mainly 16th-note) runs, which come in four flavours: straight ascending, straight descending, ‘sawtooth’ and ‘wavy’ ascending, the latter based on a rising series of four fast up-and-down phrases. Next come rather solemn slow phrases, of which there are two types: an arpeggio figure spanning ten scale steps, and a rising phrase based on the first five notes of the scale. All fast runs and slow phrases are based on the major scale, and all come to rest on a final half note.
