The Making of Orchestral Woodwinds

Orchestral Woodwinds was created in cooperation with SONiVOX. The samples were recorded using classical players recruited from the Boston Pops, the Boston Ballet Orchestra and the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Futura Productions in Roslindale, Massachusetts, a converted Masonic temple that operates as a state-of-the-art recording facility while preserving the acoustic hallmarks of a nineteenth-century recital hall. SONiVOX chose Futura for its unique acoustic character: The hall is small enough to lend a sense of intimacy, but large enough to accommodate the implied presence of an entire orchestra. Futura's acoustic signature adds a distinctively authentic flavor to Ableton Orchestral Woodwinds. The sessions were engineered by Emmy Award-winning engineer Antonio Oliart and RIAA award-winning engineer John Bono, with executive producer Jennifer Hruska, who has more than twenty years of experience in the field of soundware development.
