Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds covers all the orchestral bases by providing 13 solo woodwinds, including two flutes and specialist instruments not found in other libraries. A large articulation menu covers all stylistic needs, from subtle, sumptuous sustains and legato melodies to driving, dynamic short notes and fast scale runs. Beautifully recorded from five microphone positions by the award-winning Shawn Murphy, the timbre of some instruments takes the breath away, and collectively they will add sheen, depth and orchestral authenticity to your arrangements.

    — Sound On Sound

    The third installment in the Hollywood series, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds is an epic achievement, once again combining the talents of Producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergersen.

    Sound engineering was once again provided by ACADEMY AWARD, C.A.S. (Cinema Audio Society), BAFTA, and EMMY award-winning sound engineer SHAWN MURPHY, who has recorded and mixed the scores for more than 300 feature films including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars: A Musical Journey, Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park The Lost World, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Titanic, Minority Report, The Bourne Ultimatum, Saving Private Ryan, Munich, The Passion Of The Christ, X-Men: The Last Stand, and Ice Age, etc.

    Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds was designed to be the most detailed collection of orchestral woodwind instruments ever assembled, and offers unprecedented control over the sound of the instruments.

    Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds includes: Alto Flute, Bass Clarinet, Bass Flute, Bassoon, Clarinet, Contra Bass Clarinet, Contra Bassoon, Eb Clarinet, English Horn, Flute, Flute 2, Oboe, Piccolo Flute.

    But most importantly check out our articulations chart at the product page which really shows how far the production team went to create the ultimate orchestral woodwinds library.

    — Sound On Sound

    Hollywood Woodwinds by EastWest comes with a large selection of Instruments and articulations. The excellent sound in traditional Hollywood style can be further enhanced and improved with the five microphone positions of the Diamond version. However, even the Gold edition with only one microphone position offers a very good cost-performance ratio. In combination with Hollywood Strings and Hollywood Brass, you'll get a balanced virtual orchestra with outstanding sound.
