Slow, Emotive Strings (Bass, Cello, Viola, Violin)

Sospiro Strings is a Kontakt library for creating slow, emotive strings. It features 4 different length swells and 3 sustained articulations, recorded on bass, cello, viola, and violin.

There are separate nki's for each individual instrument, and there is an nki with all instruments mixed together, to work as a simpler sketching tool, and also to save memory.


There are 2 varieties of Swells:

  • The vibrato swells are provide a warm, individual sound. The vibrato samples sound better or worse depending on how much they are being timed-stretched, which is why it is especially nice to have non-vibrato as an option. All of the swells were originally recorded at 110 BPM.

  • The non-vibrato swells have a clear tone which especially brings attention to the change in tone as each instrument louder and softer.

There are 3 varieties of Sustains:

  • The cold sustains are played with a slow bow and no vibrato - a fragile sound at the edge of breaking.

  • The warm sustains are played over the fingerboard with a fast, freely changing bow and generous vibrato.

  • The full sustains are played closer to the bridge with a slow, heavy bow. Vibrato is used with discretion.

Please note: The FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 is required.

Well, i do think this has top sound. Do not expect a fully outfitted string library here, it is called "slow, emotive strings". That is what you get. Your options are rather limited and there is not a lot to tweak, so you have to like the sound. Listen before you buy. If you like the sound, it is an excellent library.
