Big Bang Orchestra Phoenix
Pitched Solo Percussion
Timpani, mallets, bells, gongs
Exceptional acoustics of the large Synchron Stage Vienna
Multiple microphone positions
Wide variety of presets, from close to ambient, from natural to processed
This percussion module offers a collection of pristine sounds in the categories of Timpani, Mallets, and Bells & Gongs, derived from the Synchron Series libraries Synchron Percussion I and Synchron Percussion II.
All instruments were recorded “in situ” on their perfect spot in the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna with an expansive, phase-controlled multi-microphone set-up, including close and mid mics, Decca tree (left - center - right), as well as surround and high surround outriggers.
BBO: Phoenix includes single hits of the following instruments:
Timpani, played with soft mallets
Glockenspiel, played with plastic mallets
Xylophone, played with wood mallets
Vibraphone, played with soft mallets
Tubular bells, played with medium mallets
In addition to single hits, timpani feature rolls and octave hits. The vibraphone comes with motor-on and motor-off variations.
Getting the right sound out-of-the-box is a breeze, given the host of presets that not only match the sound of all the other libraries in the Big Bang Orchestra series, but also stand on their own in all kinds of arrangements and styles. By expertly combining the available microphone signals with the internal effects of the Synchron Player you get Presets such as Close, Classical, Wide, Comp+Reverb, Far Away Echoes, Power Timps and many more.
