This video demonstrates 8Dio's Adagietto - a music software instrument featuring a full symphonic string ensemble (11 violins, 8 violas, 6 cellos and 4 basses). This video demonstrates the true legato patches in Adagietto. The Adagietto legato was sampled pr. section, so you have dedicated legato for Violins, Violas, Cellos and Basses. The legato sections contains 2-3 different types of legato. So for example playing softly on your keyboard triggers a soft/portamento and playing normal trigger our generic Village Legato. If you move your mod wheel up - you will trigger our faster Instinct Legato. Everything just works. No hassle. No keyswitches.
The video is a real-time demonstration. No additional controllers (CC) was used. Everything is played straight from the keys without any additional support, so it is as easy at it looks.

ADAGIETTO is a powerful, easy-to-use, full string ensemble set based on our deep-sampled and highly expressive Adagio String Series.
Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy nominated composer and orchestrator, Colin O'Malley, 8Dio Adagio String Series is the definitive collection of deep-sampled emotional strings ever created.
Adagietto is bread-and-butter of Adagio. It just works. No hassle. Play and Go. Everything is neatly laid out as full ensemble patches, so you can just start composing. The new three-way legato system is based on your velocity (Slur Legato, Normal Legato and Fast Legato).
Adagietto is based on Full Ensemble Strings from the Adagio collection. Full Ensemble Violin (11), Full Ensemble Viola (8), Full Ensemble Cello (6) and Full Ensemble Bass (4). The entire collection was sampled and recorded in a signature church environment with a hand-selected group of classical string players. All groups were sampled with two different microphone positions (close/far). We employed all current generation sampling techniques (ex. true legato, deep sampled repetitions etc). New techniques were also developed to capture a higher level of emotion and humanity in the performances. The result is a passionate virtual instrument which is extremely agile to play. Adagietto is all about playability.
