8DIO Majestica KONTAKT
Majestica is produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer and Producer, Troels Folmann and Emmy Nominated Composer and Orchestrator, Colin O’Malley. Majestica is the largest symphony orchestra ever sampled containing over 240 players divided over strings (100), brasses (60), woodwinds (60) and percussion (20).
Derived from our exclusive V8P sample catalogue – Majestica is designed for composers and producers that desires the ultimate, unrivaled epic symphonic sound. We spared no expense and it stands unrivaled on the market as the ultimate epic orchestral production tool.
Majestica was recorded in the same large world-class orchestral hall used for exclusive V8P series and 8Dio CAGE, AGE and Lacrimosa Epic Choir – and contains 96Khz, 3 microphone positions (Mixed, Decca and Far). The UI system for Majestica was built from scratch and contains over 35.000 lines of code giving you the ultimate experience in ease, flexibility and playability.
Majestica holds a massive 100 piece String Ensemble spread across basses, cellos, violas and violins. The string section contains true legato, regular and fast type of spiccato, marcato, bartok, con legno, expressive dynamic bowings (aka arcs).. The Majestica String Ensemble can both be soft like silk and intergalactically powerful. The bass (30) and cellos (30) sections are the largest ever sampled and the gorgeous, airy sound by the (20) violas and (20) violins just makes the entire string section stringtastic.
Majestica contains a 20 piece percussion ensemble, which takes your boom to the next dimension. The percussion section contains dedicated tom-tom ensembles, gran-casa ensembles, timpany ensembles to major snare ensembles, tambourine, anvil and stick ensembles. We also recorded cymbals, tam-tam and gong ensembles. In addition we created percussion master patches and sound designed super percussion that will pierce through any epic mix and it all just works … straight out of the box.
Majestica contains a 60 piece brass ensemble, which is the largest ever sampled in the history of sampling. Players from six different countries were flown to the scoring stage to participate. The brass ensemble consists of 10 Cimbassos, 10 Bass Trombones, 30 French Horns and 10 Trumpets. The sound is not just bigger then anything you have ever heard – it is also different. The Majestica brass ensemble contains all the core building blocks you need from sustains to staccato, marcato to expressive arcs etc.
Majestica contains two separate woodwind sections. A low woodwind section comprised of 15 bass clarinets and 15 contra bassoons. A high woodwind section comprised of 10 alto flutes, 10 flutes and 10 piccolo flutes. The sound of the low ensemble is unbelievable rich and fat – and the sound of the high woodwind ensemble can penetrate even the beefiest of mixes. The woodwinds contains both sustains, staccatissimo, double tongue, expressive arcs, trills (min/maj), gorgeous marcato etc.
Hyper Flexible UI
Majestica contains a whole new-generation of user interface (UI) flexibility. The UI alone contains over 35.000 lines of code and contains a variety of new features, including an advanced articulation browser with assignable controls, articulation sequencer, advanced arpeggiator and polyphonic step sequencer. In addition Majestica contains advanced midi and remapping functions – allowing the end-user to control anything from round robin to tuning.
