COMPLETE MIX OPTIONS • Open up the mixer page to craft the perfect blend of stereo master, close, mid, and far microphone positions. With individual loading, volume and output routing for each position, you have full control over your mix. In addition to volume control for each section and mic position, you also get independent pan sliders for each section and soloist. We recorded the players at center stage, in a wide, well-balanced stereo field allowing the Symphony Series Woodwind Collection to fit seamlessly in any genre, style or mix.
Working closely with the Native Instruments design team over a 2-year period, we built this masterpiece of sonic engineering from 60 hours of recordings at our favorite San Francisco cathedral. We captured each woodwind section and soloist with 14 premium microphones and pristine preamps, mixed down to 4 gorgeous blends: close, medium, far and stereo master. Symphony Series Woodwind Collection brings you an amazingly detailed and powerfully rich sound, with high dynamic range, clean fidelity and stunningly vivid acoustics.
