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.
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.
A detailed list of the included patches can be found under "More info".

Ah the lush, emotional and expressive strings of soaring strings. This is a marvel, the secret *** of movie string sounds you hear often. It's beautifully creafted, it hit the nail each time The results are incredible, honestly! I was blown away, how easy this lib works. no constant keywitching to get good results. Just the modwheel for expression, that's it. Legato transitions are automatically triggered correctly, e.g. play faster, the transitions get shorter, play slower, the transitions becomes longer. Just like in real life Another amazing feature many libs do not have: rebowing. In real life string players rebow every now and then (up and down bows). Soaring strings does this automatically if you repeat a note quickly enough. It doesn't sound like a retrigger of the sample, not it actually sounds like a different bow (like in real life). Very nicely done. (and adds realism to the performance The sustains are also nice (i prefer the soft sustains, because it has that extra emotional tone to it) Verdict: 5/5, very easy to play, yet getting superbly realistic sound. A must have for composers/musicians that need the emotional string sound of the movies we all know.
eine gute Ergänzung.
