Description: An energetic library of cinematic samples based on orchestral phrases.
Capriccio is our largest orchestral collection, both in terms of physical size and sound, it’s just… BIG!
We had conductor Petr Pololanik approaching the limits with his orchestra for these recording sessions, and the resulting energy, drive and power really comes through in every sample. Each phrase has been meticulously crafted from concept to production and translated into the final instrument to ensure it will work as a unit and be used as widely as possible.
You can use the Capriccio as the basis for your composition, or you can complete an existing piece using only parts. The library can be very loud and awe inspiring, or softly moody.
If you’re familiar with our previous orchestral instrument “Grosso”, the Capriccio user interface should look pretty familiar. The basic structure of the tool is the same, using 4 presets, each divided into 3 layers, but there are many innovations in Capriccio that will make working with this library even more intuitive and flexible. Highlights include a “phrase offset” slider, a separate volume control for release tails, and dragging and dropping MIDI files from the score window in the interface straight into the DAW.
In Capriccio, we have updated phrase sampling. Cast aside your preconceptions about rigid one-shot samples and use the Capriccio interface to harmonize, syncopate, shift and blend each of the 38,000 samples. We squeezed the maximum creativity and flexibility out of these phrases and created a customized interface.
Despite advances in sampling technology, you simply can’t beat the realism of live phrases and orchestral patterns, so our goal is to make them as playable as a real instrument with the minimum of programming by the end user. These tools are designed to stimulate your creativity, and based on the feedback we get, that’s exactly what they do.
We’ve also included a “run” instrument with strings and woodwind parts, a gorgeous and highly reproducible multi-sampled percussion patch, and a melodic percussion instrument containing a xylophone, glockenspiel, tubular bells and piano phrases.
All Capriccio phrases are in 4/4 time signature, with straight eighths and sixteenths.
