In 2001, composers Maarten Spruijt, Vincent Beijer and Marco Deegenaars teamed up to found ProjectSAM. Not fully satisfied with the orchestral samples available at the time, they set out to record their own, focusing on three main things:

  1. an ambient, multi-mic setup in a concert hall environment,

  2. the right set of articulations, emphasizing on note lengths in-between a sustain and a staccato, to be able to build thematic lines,

  3. instrumental effects that cannot simply be recreated using individual samples.

Solo-Info-Instruments-Articulations.jpg

13 reasons why to love Solo.

You wanted more, we delivered. We recorded 13, yes, you read that right, thirteen new instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Trumpet, French Horn, Descant Horn, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon, Soprano Angelic and Soprano Operatic.
100% new recordings.

 

Two types of long-form true legato.
No key-switching required.

We recorded two types of legato for each instrument: Rebowed and Slurred for Strings, Fingered and Retongued for Woodwinds and Brass, Aah and Ooh for the Sopranos. You can even switch between the two types of legato without using key-switches, by using either velocity or CC. 

Less is more.

We recorded just one dynamic layer on legato articulations, which is actually better for solo instruments. The less crossfades you do, the less phasing artifacts you get.
This unique dynamic layer contains all the musicality and emotion you will ever need. The recipe: slight crescendo-diminuendos, some progressive vibrato, and voilà. It just works.

 

Recorded with Budapest Scoring.

A breath of fresh air. An incredible team of contractors, musicians and sound engineers. A true recipe for success.


Our signature Sound Design.

In true Audio Imperia style, we provide you with some really unique pads that were made exclusively from the recordings.


Technical perfection.

High standards of quality - that is the base of everything we do. All of our sample libraries are meticulously handcrafted, and every single sample is treated like a gem: carefully polished to bring out all their brilliance. This ensures you a buttery-smooth experience when making music. Carefully synced sample-starts and standardized pre-pads ensure that your performances will never be out of sync, while ensuring maximum realism.
