realised I can type here
Looks like a decent list. Are you only after full string sections, not including solo instruments or collections? Like Sacconi, OT First Chairs, Chris Hein Solo Violin, Emotional Cello, OT Nocturne etc.

Not looking for solo instruments or even first chairs or quartets, but ensembles where there's more than one of each instrument (chamber, symphonic).

But thanks for the info guys, I'll add these to the list:

Aria Sounds London Symphonic Strings

Orchestral Tools Symphonic Sphere

Spitfire Olafur Arnolds Evolutions (Haunting Frozen Strings

Spitfire Evo Grid

Orchestral Tools Orchestral String Runs

Sonivox Orchestral Companion Strings

Sonokinetic Da Capo

Versilian Studios VSCO 2

Frozen Plain Arctic Strings

Cinematique Instruments Ensemblia

Impact Soundworks Rhapsody Orchestral Colours

Soundiron/Native Instruments Chamber Strings (not released yet)

Native Instruments Emotive Strings

Musical Sampling Soaring String



mini libraries, and quite specific - Spitfire Frozen Strings and Scary Strings.
Thanks, do you know if there are more mini libraries out there?

You're completely missing Project SAM from the list. They have:

Symphonic Colors Orchestrator - https://www.projectsam.com/Products/Symphobia-Colours/1439
Symphobia - https://www.projectsam.com/Products/Symphobia-Series/1389
Symphobia 2 - https://www.projectsam.com/Products/Symphobia-Series/1390
Orchestral Essentials - https://www.projectsam.com/Products/Essentials-Series/1406
Orchestral Essentials 2 - https://www.projectsam.com/Products/Essentials-Series/1446

They have a few more, but I have no knowledge of the actual content do they have just string patches (Symphobia 3 Lumina and Symphonic Colours Animator).

Here's a library which hasn't been mentioned yet - Zilhouette Strings by Cinematique Instruments:
There are also a number of solo strings missing from the list in the first post (Embertone and others).

Oops. That video link doesn't work anymore.
Here are two new ones. Are any of you using this library?
And is the list in message #1 complete now?

Wow amazing list. I had no idea there were 68 strings libraries out there. Do they all make money?
I wouldn't add them to the list but for free there are the Sonatina, Total Composure Orchestra, Virtual Playing Orchestra, VSCO2 Community, Alpine Project and the No Budget Orchestra.

Oh IKM has Miro 2 and Sampletank 3 has alleged strings.
