What's new

This doesn't sound like regular tremolo. Is it?

Woodwinds not withstanding. The strings sound like tremolo, but it sounds like they are playing it a bit different? Are they, or is it the presence of woods making it sound different? My thought is that they are digging into the bow a bit more than usual?

not 100% clear which bits you're talking about but they sound like eighth notes (quavers) with slashes through them so that each note is played twice as repeated sixteenth notes (semiquavers).

Now in LA: let's get coffee!
sounds like clarinets are doubling a string (viola? kinda boxy) tremolo. Hard to hear exactly what's going on

So, I am hearing one string(s) note, and a motif played by woods.

Kind of hard to hear, but I would say it's a measured tremolo.
Can you play measured tremolo on one note?

Not sure what you guys are hearing. It's normal unmeasured tremolo doubled with clarinet in the middle register and plain violins in the high register.

I guess sample libraries, that never have tremolo legato, are deceiving our ears.
