8Dio announced Anthology Strings for Kontakt.
Anthology contains both Ensemble, Divisi and Solo String sections for both Violin(s), Viola(s), Cello(s) and Basse(s). All recorded exclusively with grand Neumann microphones – inside a rare church recording environment. The three sensible microphone positions (Close, Mixed, Far) offers you full mastery over the sound. We developed custom techniques for the close microphones – allowing them to record much closer and intimate than your common church scoring environments. No samples overwhelmed in reverb. Instead a touching and passionate collection of strings. All designed to capture your most beautiful thoughts.
The beating heart of Anthology Strings is its playability, emotion and ease-of-use. A compendium of all principal articulations needed for advanced orchestration – and equally built for fast and expressive string writing. The custom smart browser offers you access to everything. A single click gives access to all articulations. A few clicks and you’ve designed your personal matrix of articulations.
Anthology Strings is symmetry. All String Sections have identical articulations and that goes for all Ensemble, Divisi and Solo Strings in the library. But most importantly Anthology is for you. The composer. The producer. The orchestrator. The person that wants the most expressive virtual strings ever created within a fingers touch.
The person that want complete playability, effortless expression and true emotion in the sound. This library is for you and only you.
