The Strings that work for you
We are very proud to present our take on Orchestral Strings to you.
This product is the culmination of all of our efforts to this point. It melds together our experience in orchestral phrases with what we've learned about multisampling over the years, and it furthers our quest for complete phrase flexibility.
At its core, Orchestral Strings is a hugely capable full-divisi full-size Strings Section, recorded with the fantastic Capellen Orchestra in Zlin, Czech Republic, and edited with the utmost care to preserve all the details of the performances.
We covered all the most-used articulations in up to four velocities, and we devised a 'shared tail' system for the shorts that provides you with more round robins without increasing the memory load by too much.
There is Poly-Legato and Auto Divisi to ensure the most realistic sound imaginable. No corners were cut in making this product, and it will evolve for many years to come - we still have some surprises up our sleeves that will enhance your user experience and provide you with tools that are useful and fun in equal measures.
Sonokinetic Orchestral Strings
Included in the instrument are some powerful midi engines, with midi import, real-time midi manipulation, a piano roll editor, and midi export. The possibilities are near endless, yet very easily accessible if you just want to scratch the surface.
The Runs engine allows you to play chords and trigger runs that adhere to these chords just by playing a start and an end key.
The Phrases engine at its core works as a sketchpad for Patterns, with 12 patterns autosaved with your instrument or DAW session and a potential 12 x 12 x 12 phrases saved away to be shared between your instruments and projects.
These patterns are then playable in a fashion very similar to the way our Phrase-Based instruments work, and you can even drag in phrases from the Phrase-Based products you already own and benefit from the huge flexibility boost this Strings instrument offers. You can then even drag out the midi for entire played passages including any chord changes, added Harmony etc. for use in third-party instruments or for instance to add a synth layer for a Hybrid sound!
