Expanding the Symphobia concept

If you own the original Symphobia, Symphobia 2 will greatly expand your possibilities. To name a few, the Symphobia 2 string section adds minor and major DXF trills, different lengths of crescendo-decrescendo, new crescendos and new spiccatos. If you liked the effects in the original Symphobia, you are going to love the ones in Symphobia 2! Having covered the basics, we could explore the world of orchestral effects further and look for interesting new sounds and more specific techniques. Symphobia 2 also offers real legato transitions for orchestrated sets of instruments. Various differently arranged ensembles were captured performing legato intervals, playing in unison or octaves, and were meticulously edited and scripted.

All in all, this library set the standard that inspired the imitations which came after it, and it still manages to outweigh them in one way or another, which is a genuine feat to behold. Symphobia 2 is inspiring, magical and somehow manages to work with the composer. It really is a monument to sampling.
