Not a classic String Library

Strings Boutique 2 is not a classic string library; Rast Sound turned recorded strings into their dream presets, boutiquely designed, inspired by their favourite soundtracks and composers. You can blend this palette with a dual layer engine into endless timbres and colours.

“This library is a new approach to string design, giving direct access to already mixed presets with character while offering further capabilities through layering.”

  • You will have access to presets shaped to create different emotions on the go, so you can support your harmony with a string sound that perfectly fits with ease and speed. RS designed orchestral, ensemble, solo and ethnic presets as well as going beyond classic string sound, blending subtle analog instruments to create even stronger sound images. 

  • 4 octaves of range, 47 presets on each side to create millions of timbral colours. Adaptive dynamic EQ in addition to regular velocity sensitivity to create advanced dynamics. Select, mix, shape, play and automate.

  • To further capability and performance, the engine lets you decide between layering or splitting which emulates an orchestral variety. The split mode (keyboard split) combines first preset’s lower octave with second layer’s higher octaves.

Rast Sound's String Boutique is a good writing tool for composers looking to merge warped strings into interesting sonic movements. EDM, Pop and House producer's could easily layer with this tool, but the sound quality is sub par for serious composers.
