HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL WOODWINDS
Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds covers all the orchestral bases by providing 13 solo woodwinds, including two flutes and specialist instruments not found in other libraries. A large articulation menu covers all stylistic needs, from subtle, sumptuous sustains and legato melodies to driving, dynamic short notes and fast scale runs. Beautifully recorded from five microphone positions by the award-winning Shawn Murphy, the timbre of some instruments takes the breath away, and collectively they will add sheen, depth and orchestral authenticity to your arrangements.
