And finally… the double basses, once again with four different true legato patches for full compositional variety. Legato patches allow you to turn legato off if you wish so that you can play polyphonically/chords, and the double basses also come with some percussive string fx, glisses, tremolo glissandos, and other experimental sounds too. This is a must own, as either your perfect go-to string library for any composing needs, or as a considerable addition to your existing string palette. This library was recorded 24 bit at 48000Khz with four mic positions (Close, Main, Rigs and Room) in a wonderful sounding hall. The range of articulations is listed inside. Boasting a huge range of articulations and techniques, and a fully revamped realistic legato script, with four fantastic mic positions, Close, Main (conductor position), Rigs, and Room. This sample library can be played in Kontakt 4 and above.
Articulations: Sustained long notes, as well as crossfadable dynamic layers beginning with a beautiful sounding soft pianissimo, up to a full and powerful fortissimo. Spiccato – Short notes, for all your essential driving string motifs Sordino sustains legato, 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 Sul Tasto Legato – The smooth sound created with players playing onto the fingerboard with the bow, also with true legato intervals. Martele – Intense, slightly longer detached notes using more of the bow. 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. Col Legno – striking the strings with the back, wooden side of the bow. Tremolo – Normal fast unmeasured tremolo. SFX – Variety of String sfx and experimental techniques + sounds
