Following the violin section, 8Dio is about to release the cellos of its new Agitato Series, still for Kontakt 5.
The Agitato series features samples from strings inspired by the melodic style of Williams and Mancini and are intended for fast melodic leads.
Like the Violins, the Agitato cellos will be available in two versions: Legato Ensemble and Divisi.
According to the first details provided by 8Dio, Agitato Grandiose Legato Ensemble features 7 types of legato, including the home-made x-fade that brings smooth sustain, as well as two Mancini Legatos for intense molto vibrato.
The new proprietary legato system included in this series allows for controlling the dynamics and expression, and even link the two features. An adaptive legato system is also available to adapt the effect to your composition style.
The GUI in Kontakt (v5.3 and later) also gives you access to three microphone positions (Close, Far and Mix).
Full details of these new Agitato Grandiose Cellos collection are expected soon at 8dio.com. In the meantime, here is the video tutorial:
