- JACOB SHEA (composer: Gears of War: Judgment, Planet Earth II, Through the Wormhole)

"What blew me away about DOTD was how close it sounded to an actual percussion scoring session.  No hyped, compressed within an inch of its life sounds.  Just beautifully recorded natural samples."
- STEPHEN BARTON (composer: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Titanfall, Titanfall 2)
Drums of the Deep has become a staple in my template for its flexibility and the breadth of sonic possibilities and images available from the microphones; it is a joy to use. Cannot recommend Auddict’s libraries highly enough.
- MIKE KENNERTY (musician / producer: The All-American Rejects, Screeching Weasel, Direct Hit!, The Copyrights)
I love layering cinematic elements into rock songs. Even when mixed subtly they can really bring a song to life. Drums of the Deep is a perfect library for adding those kinds of touches. Really great for that extra percussive oomph.
- Klayton (Celldweller)

UNITED STRINGS OF EUROPE


Why do I need the First AND Second Violins?

This is a very good and valid question, rightly asked by many of you!

The perfect balance and hugely sought after sound of the orchestra has been refined over centuries. In order to capture this sonic beauty with samples, each section must be meticulously captured… multiple players, each with different instruments, slightly different timbre, subtle differences in tuning, vibrato and seated in different positions in the stereo/sonic field.

Combining the USE first and second violins in your palette allows access to this beautiful, lush synergy of instruments… something not possible by layering multiple tracks of first violins, which at the very least, can cause phase problems, but more importantly, withhold your music from its full potential and depth.

With the United Strings of Europe, the second violins are particularly important, as - faithful to how the USE play (and similar to how a lot of score music is recorded) - the second violins actually sit to the right of the conductor, with first violins opposite on the left. It's common for many scores to be recorded this way, and has the benefit of basses sitting in the middle at the back (you want the bass in your track in the middle!)

On top of all this, – from a plainly musical/performance perspective - every single note in the second violins is a different and new performance to the first violins... Every note has slightly different intention, emotion and musicality. Combining and orchestrating with both sections will raise the depth of your music several-fold.
