Before the compact disc entered games MIDI was widely used due to the superior adaptiveness over audio. When audio completely took over, we entered “the dark ages” of adaptive game music. With Elias you can finally have adaptive game music again; this time with real audio. Nevertheless, MIDI will always be more adaptive than audio, so the aim for for us at Elias was to solve two problems with MIDI:
- The licensing of sound banks.
- The inadequate sound quality compared to audio.
The two above are solved. A license with Elias will cover all licensing for use of the sounds in a game, and having the best sound providers on board makes the MIDI tracks sound as good as the audio tracks.
The Elias Essential Orchestra is the only virtual orchestra for game music. All composers around the world are using virtual orchestras, but the problem is that the sounds are converted to static audio tracks when mixing. With the Elias Essential Orchestra, you can keep the flexibility and adaptiveness the whole way into the living room of the gamers. For the first time in history you can experience live adaptive game music with a whole symphonic orchestra that cuts no corners when it comes to quality.
To provide our customers with the best orchestral sounds available, we are proud to say we teamed up with Orchestral Tools.
