Big Fish Audio – Tension (KONTAKT)

By | February 27, 2017

Tension: Orchestral FX & Elements is a large collection of short ensemble and section phrases and percussion one-shots composed, orchestrated and conducted by “Beethoven-Award” winner Kostas Varotsis. Tension is the perfect resource for quickly adding that orchestral flare you are looking for in your next cinematic score. Recorded with a large 76-piece orchestra, Tension is jam packed with orchestral gems like runs, stabs, rips, bends, flutters, risers, clusters, and a whole lot more. In total, you’ll find 100 patches filled with endless inspiration.

For example, when opening the strings clusters patch you won’t just find one or two samples, but multiple variations of string section clusters all across the keyboard. In addition, a large collection of percussion one-shots have been included to round out this collection.

Tension has been formatted for Kontakt 5, MachV 3, EXS24, and Reason 7. The patches are organized in six main categories: Orchestral Sections, Combinations, Tutti, Cues, Bends, and Reverses. In addition, the kontakt version also has a bonus section of “merged instruments” as well as over 30 multis combining various effects to create an even larger palette of unique and inspirational content.

If you are ready to bring your orchestral and cinematic scores to the new heights, Tension: Orchestral FX & Elements is where it’s at!
