Soaring Strings - Overview
With so many great legato string libraries out there, why another one?
Because Soaring Strings focuses on performance, by having the players really dig in with the vibrato and giving you all they had with the triple forte dynamic. This also meant approaching the sessions in a unique, musical way to capture the kind of singular legato everybody is looking for.
Keep things simple
Another focus was to dial things back and to confine oneself to the essentials of producing credible string arrangements in a shorter amount of time:
a single, natural mix and omitting seldom-used legato articulations
a "Sustain Sync" feature that synchronizes the starting sustain with the following intervals/repetitions, which saves you from having to make adjustments to start-notes
a "To Silence" button that can enable the modwheel to completely diminish the softest dynamic to silence
recording a medium-sized ensemble provides both "solo-istic" detail and natural transparency.
