42GB of the Finest Strings in the World Recorded in Stunning 24bit / 48kHz

London Symphonic Strings contains the standard five section string ensemble (V1, V2, Violas, Cellos, Basses) recorded 24 bit / 48kHz with four mic positions (Close, Main, Rigs and Room) in a beautiful sounding hall.

Each section has up to 3 dynamic layers with up for 4 RR per note.

The entire string section was recorded in the correct orchestral seating positions, so when you load up the library, each section is correctly positioned in the stereo image, according to how the players are sat. Multiple true legato patches are included for each section, providing realistic note transitions.

 

 

 

 

4 Mic Positions & Every String Articulation Under the Sun

London Symphonic Strings were recorded with a selection of incredible Neumann and Schoeps mics in 4 positions – Close, Main, Rigs and Rooms. The close position was a pair of Neumanns hovered above each section and the main pair was behind the conductor with a stereo pair and added outriggers allowing you to add that extra width out to the sides.

The rigs mics were a pair of Schoeps along with a pair of outriggers (also Schoeps to match the sound), to add width. The room mics were a pair of  Neumanns, for a more ambient hall sound.

A huge range of articulations were recorded including:

  • Sustained Legato – (Violin I, Violin II, Violas, Cellos, Basses)
  • Spiccato – (Violin I, Violin II, Violas, Cellos, Basses)
  • Sordino Sustain Legato – (Violin I, Violin II, Violas, Cellos, Basses)

  • Colle – (Violin I)

LSS First Violins (4.8GB)

The “First Violins” section boasts a huge range of articulations and techniques, as well as new scripting tech and possibilities. LSS First Violins boasts the first user controllable slow gliss/slide patch, allowing you to perform long glissandos between any two notes, without the aid of synthesized pitch bends or artificial means, of course the essential patches, different types of legato and legato patches, less common articulations, and a collection of string sound percussive sounds, experimental sounds and builds.

The full range of articulations is listed below:

  • Sustained long notes, with interchangeable fingered and bowed true legato intervals, conveniently displayed as you play on the easy to read/use user interface, as well as four crossfadable dynamic layers beginning with a beautiful sounding soft pianissimo, up to a full and powerful fortissimo.
  • Spiccato – 3x round robin with 6 velocity layers
  • Sordino sustained long notes, with crossfadable dynamic layers and true legato intervals
  • Sul Ponticello Legato – The raspy and hollow sound when players bow closer to the bridge, bringing less of the fundamental note out, and more of the naturally occurring harmonics. This patch also has crossfadable dynamic layers and true legato
  • Molto Sul Ponticello – The raspy and hollow sound when players bow closer to the bridge, bringing less of the fundamental note out, and more of the naturally occurring harmonics. This patch also has crossfadable dynamic layers and true legato
  • Sordino Spiccato – Spiccato played with mutes on, 4x round robin variations and 2 dynamic layers
  • Harmonics
  • Glissando/Slide – slide between any two notes with this new fantastic scripting technique without any synthesized or artificial pitch bending. 100% recorded genuine slide between notes. Higher velocity = faster slide.

  • Martele – Intense, slightly longer detached notes using more of the bow. 2x round robin variations per note.
  • Pizzicato and Bartok pizz – Players pluck the strings, as well as “Bartok pizz” where the pluck is hard enough to cause the string to snap back against the fingerboard. 2x round robin per note, with 3dynamic layers
  • Col Legno – striking the strings with the back, wooden side of the bow. 2x round robin variations per note.
  • “Violin Concerto” – Leading soloist playing loud with vibrato, over the rest of the section, who play softly with mutes. Yet another addition to the possible colour of sound you can give your score.
  • String SFX – Variety of string effects, clusters, percussive sounds, experimental sounds, noises, builds etc.
