Musical Sampling Trailer Strings
Strings Virtual Instruments for Kontakt Full
60-string ensemble: 18 violins, 16 violas, 14 cellos, and 12 double basses recorded separately in the same concert hall as Trailer Brass. We’ve also incorporated our wide/centered seating arrangement to help achieve the modern, oversized aesthetic we were going for.
What you get is a useful array of short and long articulations, but with the size and clarity that’s specifically geared towards huge, over-the-top productions. As with the brass, we really pushed the players to give us everything they had with the triple-forte dynamic.
We’ve also included our “Adventure” patch programming for all four sections, a cool asset for on-the-fly, pompous string lines without any keyswitching.
Also included in the basses and cellos are three cluster effects patches. "Snap and Grunt" provides an arsenal of atonal snap pizzicatos, spiccatos/staccato chugs, and behind-the-bridge scrapes. “The Brooding” includes subtle, low-range aleatoric meanderings (good for: “alligator sneaking up on prey”). “Behind the Bridge!” is exactly that, tremelo’d (good for: “alligator eats prey”).
Our favorite part? The “All Strings” patch, which includes all the respective articulations, spread out over the keyboard. Be prepared to waste a lot of time playing with this patch.
