    Any string libraries with true legato for harmonics patches?

    Or even better portamento? I know Ark 2 has glissando for harmonics but that is more of an effect, I'm looking for a more playable kind.

    I’m looking for new libraries for string and brass. Any suggestions?

    I’ve been using Cinematic Studio Strings for quite a while now, and Cinematic Studio Brass since earlier this year. After heavily using these libraries recently, I’ve come to the realization that these libraries have several flaws, and one of them is the incessant hissing. I’ve tried using...

    A string sound similar to Yuki Kajiura's music (SStS, SCS, LASS, etc?)

    Hey, everyone! I've been a fan of Yuki Kajiura for many years and I'm interested in emulating the close and intimate sound she creates with her strings. They are recorded live but, since I have neither the budget nor contacts, I'm looking for a library which can get as close as possible. Could...

    String library micro reviews (mainly pros and cons)

    I don't know if this will any/many posts, but I think it's worth a try. If you should write a micro review of one of your fav. string libraries, what would you write? I'm thinking of something really short - just a few pros and cons and possibly a 'conclusion'.

    Most important qualities in a string library?

    Had it been easy to create a string library that would fulfil most users' needs, there would't have been so many of them out there. So - when you consider a string library, and listen to demos/walkthroughs etc... which qualities are most important for you? Please post your answers, if you have...

    VSL Solo Strings

    I've been interested lately in seeing what's out there in terms of solo strings libraries. My latest string quartet, linked below, was done with VSL solo strings (standard library) and took way too many hours of programming to get it to sound this way. I guess, my question is, are there other...

    Double stops in live playing

    I'm sure I'm missing something basic. Live playing via midi keyboard of a solo string instrument (an nki that's loaded into the full version of Kontakt): What setting do I need to change in order to be able to play two pitches at the same time? Couple of guesses: - In the instrument's Voice...

    POLL: What are your favourite string libraries?

    NB - the libraries marked with an asterisk have been added to the poll after the voting started (April 6th 2017 or later). This poll doesn't take into consideration the number of users who use each library, so a library with a low percentage could still be seen as perfect by all it's users (but...

    Favourite *string* preset for sketching polyphonically?

    Hi all, what's your fav allround string patch for generating ideas? This is for those who doesn't start out a new idea/composition with one line at a time, but instead improvise or in other way work out an idea polyphonically. So it's not about your most used string library, or the one you...

    Yet another new string library: Silhouette Strings ... looks interesting, the pricing makes it very tempting. So recently we've had Soaring Strings, Light And Sound's Chamber Strings, Aria Sound's Strings, and now this offering by Cinematique Instruments.

    Can any string library sound like this?

    I'm fairly new at using high quality orchestral libraries. English is not my 1st language so I think I've been throwing around wrong words on the forum to ask for what I need. I have Albion ONE & Mural Vol. 1, but as I'm getting deep, I'm getting more interested in smaller sized string...
