Cinematic Studio Solo Strings

Beautifully detailed, intimate and expressive Solo Strings

Cinematic Studio Solo Strings is the latest instalment in the Cinematic Studio Series, bringing you solo violins 1 and 2, viola and cello to add a tantalising new dimension to your musical creations. The team behind this library has spent more than 120 hours recording Australia’s finest string players in a world-class scoring stage, using a unique combination of microphones to capture the individual character and charm of each instrument.

Virtuoso Solo, Quartet or First Chair

Cinematic Studio Solo Strings brings all the emotional depth and virtuosity of an outstanding quartet to your fingertips, making it the perfect compositional tool for exposed lyrical solo or quartet passages. And because we maintained positional accuracy and recorded the same diverse range of articulations, CSSS provides a vibrant first-chair accompaniment to our full section library Cinematic Studio Strings. This allows you to seamlessly transition between writing for solo strings and full sections.

Cinematic Studio Solo Strings GUIIntuitive, easy to use GUI

The GUI is streamlined and efficient, with a minimal number of patches making it quick and easy to learn. The layout is functionally the same as for Cinematic Studio Strings, so you can double the solo instrument patches with their section counterparts and play them at the same time on one MIDI channel.

This first-chair functionality serves to reinforce the sound of each section, with the lush sound of the section bolstered by a 1st-chair solo patch. This blending together of the two libraries creates an even smoother, richer sound.

Unparalleled Realism

Cinematic Studio Solo Strings are expressive, emotive and powerful, with a smooth realistic sound that gives any melody that elusive human touch. Every sample was tuned by ear, and carefully edited and programmed to ensure that delicate balance between consistency, playability and realism. All of the dynamics have been preserved in their natural state, and as with CSS, no EQ or reverb was applied to the demos, so what you hear is the pure, out-of-the-box sound.

CSSS Violin ImageComprehensive list of Articulations

Cinematic Studio Solo Strings features a comprehensive list of playing articulations and styles.

These include: true performance legatos, portamentos, staccatos, staccatissimos, marcatos, spiccatos, sforzando accents, pizzicatos, bartok pizzicatos, col legnos, measured and unmeasured tremolos, major and minor trills and harmonics.

The articulation list, dynamic layers and keyswitch layout of the library matches Cinematic Studio Strings in order to provide a perfect first-chair accompaniment.

Top notch product from Cinematic .. the level of realism and ease of use at the same time leaves competition in the shade. Really shining star.

Leider kommt die Library m.E. nicht an CSS ran (das ich sehr oft und gerne nutze). Im Nachhinein hätte ich die Finger davon gelassen (obwohl ich ein großer Cinematic Series Fan bin). Das heißt nicht, dass die Library jetzt schlecht wäre. Sehr gut taugt die Library als First Chair Erweiterung für CSS. Dennoch hat sie leider einige (in meinen Augen größere) Schwächen: Es ist mir trotz langen Testens nicht gelungen, schnelle Passagen und Runs auch nur annähernd glaubhaft zu spielen oder programmieren. Das geht nur mit den shorts, was mir aber in vielen Situationen nicht weiterhilft, da der Klang dann nicht in den Kontext passt. Weiter hört man leider viele Artefakte (ka, ob das Phasing ist oder an den Aufnahmen bzw. der Programmierung liegt). Mein Fazit also: Als First Chair Erweiterung für CSS gut, auch als Quartett nicht schlecht, aber für komplexe Solo Performances in meinen Augen eher wenig geeignet. Was aber schön ist, ist, dass der Ton an sich sehr emotional gehalten ist. Die shorts sind kraftvoll und gut zu gebrauchen. Insgesamt leider hinter meinen Erwartungen geblieben, aber dennoch eben wegen des First Chair Aspekts ok. Ich hätte 3.5 Sterne gegeben. Da es aber nur volle gibt tendiere ich noch eher zu 4 als 3. ich hoffe, das Review hilft den unentschlossenen :)

Verwende CSSS als First Chair Ergänzung der CSS. Das ist das iTüpfelchen der Streicher Library. Aber auch als Solo-Instrumente können sich die CSSS hören lassen. Fantastischer Realismus.
