Aimed at producers looking for high-quality ready-to-go string sections for modern productions, SESSION STRINGS produces immediate results without hours of fine tuning and tweaking, yet also boasts an incredible set of expressive features accessible from a highly intuitive interface. The fully production-ready sound is made up of four violins, three violas, two celli and two double basses – played as one perfectly realized ensemble.
Recorded and produced by e-instruments in one of the best sounding studios in Germany famous for its disco and pop productions during the 70s, this ensemble excels in delivering beautifully warm, punchy and direct strings. Precious instruments from the 18th and 19th century were recorded using the highest-end studio equipment. Top musicians from some of the finest orchestras in Europe performed a large number of strings articulations at the highest musical level.
SESSION STRINGS has been designed for maximum ease of use – start playing and instantly control the full, lush ensemble. Intuitively laid out, the instrument groups are mapped across the full keyboard range, with double bass on the lower keys and violins at the top end, with beautifully smooth cross-fading between each instrument group as you work your way up the register. The range of expression in SESSION STRINGS is phenomenal – with easily controllable falls, slides and crescendi instantly creating soulful and funky licks.
SESSION STRINGS beautifully reproduces the transition between notes, adding a truly human touch to your tracks. With an instantly accessible convolution reverb and EQ, it’s easy to get the right string sound at once. You can even dial up a recreation of the legendary 60s string sound synonymous with countless Motown recordings.
The Animator feature can take your productions into deeper territories. Working in a similar way as an arpeggiator, the Animator can instantly transform a chord into a groovy staccato, spiccato or pizzicato phrase, rhythmically riffing on your played chord. The Animator is also easily tweaked to create dynamic results via the intuitive interface. Unique to SESSION STRINGS, you can trigger the Animator with a chord played by one hand, and then create an “unanimated” melody or further chords on the other hand.
