I am quite comfortable saying that Afflatus has become my main string library - by that, I mean the string library I use the most, not exclusively. I still reach for plenty of other string libraries for specific things that other libraries are specialized and accomplish well (won't name them here as this is an Afflatus thread). But it just so happens that Afflatus does a lot of things better than other libraries, and the workflow is just stellar. I can get things done faster and sounding better in most cases. Although some may think that because this is a boutique library it is only able to do certain things, I really do not see it like that, because I have difficulty trying to think of a musical genre where this library would not work well. Afflatus covers A LOT of ground, and it does it pretty darn well. And it is inspiring to work with. Oh, and it has amazing unparalleled Polyphonic legato even on full patches. That feature is just so incredibly useful, and it really radically changed my workflow, not just speed wise, but inspiration-wise and writing-wise. When you have a feature like this it leads to better and more intuitive writing, for me at least.
Amazing to hear, and thanks for the feedback. Now I just have to start thinking about how I'd afford this :D

One thing I haven't really explored yet are the CC controls for dynamics/volume swells. I assume this is auto-assigned to the mod wheel, but are there other CC controllers/sliders on the interface?

I just can't get enough of the sound of these strings. Really, really beautiful.


@Strezov @StrezovSampling Is there no tenuto scene d'amour cello? Sorry if you covered this already and I missed it. Just want to make sure that I'm not missing it somehow as the Tenuto patches in Violins and Viola are some of my absolute favourites and the legato cello scene d'amour is gorgeous.
(I guess there's minimalist tenutos).

I have the same question: Are there Scene D'amour Cellos Tenutos? Can't Find those. @StrezovSampling

Sorry for the radio silence guys, preparing to put a new shiny product in beta version...

We didn't have the possibility to record Scene d'amour Tenutos (the ones we did didn't live up to the rest of the library) - and I can see now that there was a mistake in our announcement, terribly sorry about that. We'll quite probably do these later on and get them out too...

Thank you George. I just wanted to make sure I hadn’t somehow missed them. If they can be added later that would be awesome. Still a most beautiful Strings library.
 
Can you specify what you have in mind exactly? Thanks! @Silence-is-Golden
Probably used the wrong word/name but I mean : sordino, muted strings.

Since I am using the mutes in the other patches a lot on my current works I thought I’d be nice to have on the FC too.
Especially when using them more exposed, which these FC’s certainly can handle.

Hope this clarifies my request.

This is my personal favorite string library of all out on the market currently. So many styles to choose from, and the polyphonic legato and dynamic control is incredible! =)

I'm finally ready to update Afflatus, but have a problem with un-raring the files (I'm on Mac, High Sierra) which I haven't had before. After having unpacked the first file (StrezovSampling_Afflatus_Chapter_I_Strings_v1_2_Samples.part1.rar), the next file isn't automatically unpacked. And when I try to unpack StrezovSampling_Afflatus_Chapter_I_Strings_v1_2_Samples.part2.rar manually, the first rar is unpacked again. I have tried with The Unarchiver and Keka.

Anyone else who have come across this, and know a solution? Thanks in advance.

No, never heard of him, but I listened to some of his music...The lad has talent, sure, but he still has a long way to go.
