Violin, Viola and Cello with a dark tone - Perfect for slow emotional lines
Strezov Sampling is proud to present their first Solo Strings library focusing on expressive performances. Macabre consists of a sampled String Trio Violin, Viola and Cello recorded separately in their first chair positions in the Sofia Session Studio, where artists like Two Steps from Hell recorded their albums.
Macabre Solo Strings aren't the usual sampled Solo Strings. They were crafted with one particular sound in mind, which they deliver better than any other Solo String library out there. Macabre excels at slow emotional Solo String lines and on top of that you don't even need tons of programming to get stunning results with them. Just sit down and play. The samples themselves contain a huge amount of natural expressiveness, which makes it easier than ever to write realistic sounding Solo String lines.

Die Macabre Solo Strings begeistern mit einem äußerst natürlichen und lebendigen Klang, der ohne Kompression und Nachbearbeitung auskommt. Die größte Stärke der Library ist zweifelsohne ihre ausdrucksstarke Spielbarkeit ganz ohne den Einsatz von Key-Switches. Besonders bei dem Legatospiel setzt die Kollektion Maßstäbe in puncto Realismus. Mit ihrem lyrischen, etwas dumpfen Klangcharakter eignen sich die Macabre Solo Strings besonders für langsame, emotionale Stücke.

"Storm Choir 2 and Thunder 2 played such an important role in my most recent fantasy RPG project. It's been difficult for me to find a choir library that's not only huge-sounding, but also well-programmed, and Storm Choir 2 really fits the bill. It's become my go-to library when I need a power choir!"
Pacific Rim, Gotham, Sherlock Holmes, Crysis 2
"The Strezov Sampling Team has definitely filled a gap in the sampling world! What really blew me away was Storm Choir II which easily has become my go to choir sample library when it comes to epic choral arrangements ... and it never get's replaced!"
