Session Strings Pro
SESSION STRINGS PRO is far more than just a string library. Creating natural, expressive string tracks in the highest possible quality has never been more immediate, or more rewarding.
The sound of SESSION STRINGS PRO is close, detailed and intimate — an essential alternative to orchestral strings. Meticulously sampled and designed to sit well in the mix, each of the four ensembles consists of five instrument groups: full ensemble, four violins, three violas, two cellos and two basses. Play full ensembles, mapped across the keyboard, or individual instrument groups.
SESSION STRINGS PRO provides detailed control, right down to the amount of bow noise. Choose between classic or pop instrument placements. Experiment with close and wide microphone positions, or combine two ensembles for a full, widescreen sound. Based in Hamburg, Germany, e-instruments specialize in intensely detailed sampled instruments. Thomas Koritke and his team have succeeded in capturing the clarity, warmth, and character of these strings, using the very best equipment for outstanding sound quality. Every note is expertly played by virtuosos from Europe’s top orchestras, and the instruments used were hand-picked Italian antiques, including an exquisite cello from 1685.
