How Does Oscillation Strings Work?

Instruments

For all of the articulations, you can choose between violin, viola, cello, or bass. Everything has been recorded dry, close-mic’d, and is doubled (two instances layered together). It’s easy to achieve realistic chamber strings sound this way.

Two Different Types Of Legato Samples

Note Change shifts land decisively as a bow change happens during the note-change. Portamento shifts provide a more gliss-y and romantic note-change.

Purge Unused Samples

If all the samples are loaded at once, it takes up a hefty chunk of memory! To lighten the load, there are options to purge (unload from RAM) unused Rhythms, unused Swells, or and/or unused Instruments.

Rhythms

  • Energetic eighth notes
  • Medium quarter notes recorded at two different speeds: 90 and 120 bpm
  • Broad, expressive half notes
  • Double or Halve timestretching

Everything tempo-syncs, so if the project bpm is too fast or slow, samples may get overstretched and sound un-natural. The interface includes options to halve or double the speed of everything, to avoid this overstretching.

Swells/Custom Swells

Similar to a synth, Oscillation Strings has an attack and decay knob. What’s different is that each position in the knob triggers a whole different set of samples. This opens up a lot of phrasing possibilities.

If swells aren’t your thing, you can just switch over to “Expression” and use the modwheel to make your own phrasing.

Compression

The compression brings up the volume of the soft parts of the swell. They can be a bit dramatic, and it’s nice to be able to mellow them out. Because it’s compressing the sample for each individual note, it’s more natural sounding. You wouldn’t be able to get the same effect by just slapping a compressor on after Kontakt.

Polyphonic Legato

The legato in Oscillation Strings is one of the most unique features. Depending on where in the swell overlapping notes are played, a different legato sample will be chosen, and it’s sample offset, volume, length, and fade-in time are all automatically adjusted by the script to fit.

It’s easier to describe by showing, so check out the Oscillation Strings Legato in-depth video for a more detailed explanation of how this works.
