Individuals are 40% off. Check out the site!
Does anyone have anything they've done with Alternative Solo Strings? I was always intrigued but it seems very likely to be yet another miss in my solo-strings arsenal.
Great discounts but saving my money for Studio Woodwinds to complete my studio set!
what a name for the campaign...... expected something spectaculor..... and then...... well ?!**
As I have all the other libraries, HZS is 50% off for me. And I'm sure a lot of other guys would find their happiness here. It should be noted too that it's very rare for SA to go under 40%.
Was expecting a new product from the announcement, but oh well this is nice too. Not that my broke ass is going to buy anything, and i am not really in need of either of these.
Wow. Wallet sad now! Thanks!
Remember you can buy these products individually at 40% off or buy all six (or the remaining products in the collection if you already have some of them) at 50% off.
MaxOctane has linked to the collection page but there's more info on the homepage: spitfireaudio.com
TBH, not worth it at full price at all. Way too little content. The discounted price is OK, but Olafur Arnalds EVO's are better IMHO.
You'll have to skip around a little bit, but Alternative Solo Strings is the only strings lib I used in this:
I'm new to this world, and still getting used to the library, so take it with a grain of salt.
Debating about alternative solo strings, LCOS, and symphonic evolutions, mostly the former.
It‘s a cool library with some great sounds. Think I used some Dig Spicc sounds from the cello and viola in a „demo“ for British Drama Toolkit, though imo it‘s best used in context or for special sounds (my two cents here)
The alternative sound of Alternative strings is awesome, but could patches like the normal spiccatos and performance legatos be used more traditionally to play fast clean passages like from a classical quartet playing Vivaldi or something? In the walkthrough video at 5:30 Paul Thompson plays a quick legato phrase that sort of sounds traditional. Is this possible with the library? Or are the round robins of even the spiccato patches too unique and different to be used for long consistent phrases?
Yeah I already have OACE so was wondering if this actually added anything .
The Alternative solo strings sounds much like the GoT score, maybe I`ll buy them.
I‘d say it can be used for that; but afaik ASS has no vibrato control. So while the performance legatos (only violin and cello) can be definitely used for faster stuff (think I tried some Vivaldi out of fun when I first got it) there’s also definitely stuff it can‘t do compared to the „normal“ Solo Strings.
(+you don‘t get the sound of AIR, which might be not too bad for people that like dryer stuff)
I don't have much left to spend and i guess i'm keeping mine for the new Eduardo Tarilonte Dark Era library...
Why are you complaining lol
So I'm thinking maybe LCOS. Hmmm
