Now shipping!
Zero-G and Xfonic present ANIMATO String & Flute FX for Cinema - 4.5Gb of 24bit cinematic audio inspiration! Animato contains 3000 samples and 139 separate Kontakt instruments each with its own custom GUI created especially for this project.
Featuring world-class instrumentalists from the renowned Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Animato is a uniquely realistic, expressive and playable Orchestral Effects library. With a wide sonic range from chaotic, tense effects to beautiful undulating pads. Distant pianissimo sirens can shift seamlessly to fortissimo ungodly screeches all at the simple command of your Mod Wheel.
The 20th century saw the extreme sonic possibilities and expressive potential of classical instruments gradually become standard compositional tools of pioneering concert and film composers. Now at last, many of the best and most exciting possibilities are presented here in an easy to control format utilising the massive sonic capabilities of Kontakt enabling you to change microphone positions or ensemble size at the turn of a knob.
The unique depth and complexity of sound presented here is the product of many players playing complex, changing parts together – a quality heard in full live orchestral performances but impossible to re-create using standard orchestral sample libraries, where stacking up many straight-played notes in a sequencer only results in a flat, straight-played sound.
This library is perfect for adding realistic strings and woodwind effects to soundtracks, TV programmes and games but it is also ideal for contemporary commercial producers looking for authentic live sounds that give their productions a leading edge.

The starting point for this library was to make it perfect for creating soundtracks to films, TV programs and games, with a leaning towards the eerie and tortured. However, for contemporary commercial pop/rock/hip-hop production you will also find some of the most beautiful pads you'll ever hear. It is also ideal for contemporary commercial producers looking for authentic live sounds that give their productions a leading edge.

Why was it created? It started with a problem: how can you get world class orchestral effects, that sound like a real orchestra playing, which are highly expressive, completely controllable and easy to play, and yet avoid having to pay for £10,000 recording sessions? After sifting in vain through commercially available premium orchestral sound libraries, producer Dan Graham found nothing that could fulfill all of these requirements. And so, he set out to record his own dream orchestral sample collection – all the weird and wonderful effects he'd employed in his own live orchestral recordings – something that would be complex, alive but easily controllable with a Mod Wheel.

Recorded over a week in May 2010 at Liverpool's famous Parr Street Studios (Coldplay, Genesis amongst others), four world class Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra players were heavily multi-tracked up to create 16 violins, 8 cellos, 6 flutes and 6 piccolos for that big ensemble effect.

20 hours of stereo 24-bit 44.kHz audio was painstakingly edited down, looped and programmed in Kontakt 3.5 over 3 months by Dan Graham, programmer Andy Flett and scripter Mario Krušelj until this beautiful library was finished and put to immediate effective use on a series of tracks for movie trailers. Tried, tested and satisfied, the collection was then finally handed over to Zero-G so that these wonderful sounds could be shared with the most demanding composers and producers in the world.
