THE PROFESSIONAL’S INSTRUMENT

SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE is the sound of a full 60-piece string orchestra with unparalleled sound quality. True Auto Divisi provides ultra-accurate realism. And true polyphonic legato and portamento deliver full emotional impact.

LUSH RECORDINGS

STRING ENSEMBLE was recorded in collaboration with acclaimed software string instrument developers Audiobro. For maximum realism and versatility, a comprehensive list of long and short articulations, including sordinos, trills, staccatos and octave runs, were recorded in exceptional detail with separate half sections to ensure True Divisi. Even the soloed close mic mixes sound spectacular – a significant achievement for a string library. The final mixes were created to deliver the sound of contemporary soundtracks right out of the box.

APPLY DETAILED REALISM

The Dynamics knob allows you to create expressive real-time performances. Any adjustment intelligently blends the recordings of different dynamic layers for fluid, dramatic tonal shifts. True Auto Divisi, plus polyphonic legato and portamento on all sections provide the most realistic string performances possible on a software instrument.

TRUE AUTO DIVISI

All sections were recorded in two separate A and B parts for a True Divisi functionality. The Auto Divisi engine keeps player size consistent when performing polyphonic legato lines, chords, and phrases. It intelligently distributes notes between the Divisi parts for a highly transparent and realistic string performance in all articulations.

TRUE POLYPHONIC LEGATO AND PORTAMENTO

All sections feature true polyphonic legato and portamento in impeccable quality with up to eight-voice automatic voice-leading in real time. These features are easily configurable and, combined with Auto Divisi, facilitate realistic and true-to-life scores that translate every performance into a unique emotional experience.

DETAILED MIX OPTIONS

Open up the mixer to create the perfect blend of close, mid, and far mics – all stereo pairs maintain phase coherence in any mix combination. Memory is only allocated to active mic positions for maximum efficiency.

All mixer settings can be stored, and easily recalled for other NKIs.
