LUSH RECORDINGS
STRING ENSEMBLE was recorded in collaboration with acclaimed software string instrument developers Audiobro. For maximum realism and versatility, a comprehensive list of long and short articulations, including sordinos, trills, staccatos and octave runs, were recorded in exceptional detail with separate half sections to ensure True Divisi. Even the soloed close mic mixes sound spectacular – a significant achievement for a string library. The final mixes were created to deliver the sound of contemporary soundtracks right out of the box.

APPLY DETAILED REALISM
The Dynamics knob allows you to create expressive real-time performances. Any adjustment intelligently blends the recordings of different dynamic layers for fluid, dramatic tonal shifts. True Auto Divisi, plus polyphonic legato and portamento on all sections provide the most realistic string performances possible on a software instrument.

Multisampled pop strings (violin, viola, cello and contrabass) performed by Stockholm Session Strings. Session Strings is a multisampled strings toolkit for producers of all sorts of contemporary music: pop, R'n'B, dance music etc. Based on masterfully played and pristinely recorded live performances, these carefully edited program files turn you and your sampler into a tight and versatile string ensemble. Session Strings gives you four different instrument groups, each with its own set of playing styles.

The material on Session Strings was performed by Stockholm Session Strings, a 12-piece String ensemble renown for their work with artists such as Celine Dion, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Westlife.

All instruments were recorded using Neumann U87 microphones placed at a distance of approximately 1 meter / 3 feet. The end result was created by blending the "dry" signal with room ambience picked up by two Bruel&Kjaer 4006 microphones.
