More info. coming next week !

I'm wishing it turns out to be their dedicated Strings Library, with wonderful timbre, and features. But it could be something else, the Violin in the teaser points towards strings. we shall know more next week. :)

Seems like a race to get new libraries out before we spend our money. Lol. A few developers are putting things out.

I wonder what Areia means... From online definitions I found this : "The name Areia is of English origin. The meaning of Areia is "melody"" -

However in my language it means "Sand". And in Greek mythology it is a daughter of Cleochus, by whom Apollo became the father of Miletus.
I look forward to the reveal of the library.

Looking forward to hear more demos, specs, details, videos, ..etc.

The Soft &Slow (Naked) demo sounds very good. More demos would be nice, for both long, and short articulations, and any other special features this library offers.

Thanks.

This is an interesting announcement. I find that even though Jaeger seems to focus on trailer styled music/instruments the strings in it actually sound really good. I am certainly willing to give these a look based on that.

Same here. I'm glad they developed their own dedicated Strings Library.

I wonder what it offers that is unique, or special besides the sonic quality/timbre of the strings. I guess we will know more soon.

Hard to tell really...those demos don't really give any sense of what the strings can do. Didn't like the naked demo at all...there was a weird buzzing sound all the way through...reminds me of Hyperion Micro Strings...hated those.. LOL But hopefully I'm wrong. So far Jaegar and Nucleus sound better judging by the demos.

So many string libraries being released over the next months that I feel like it's best to just wait until they're all released.. LOL
