We are very proud to present our take on Orchestral Strings to you.

We have spent the best part of five years working on this project and have left no stone unturned to create a product that, as a multisampled String Orchestra alone, will satisfy even the most demanding users. But this collection is so much more than that. Orchestral Strings is the culmination of all of our efforts and experience to this point. It melds together everything that we've learned about multisampling over the years, combined with our knowledge of orchestral phrases.

At its core, Orchestral Strings is a hugely capable full-divisi full-size Strings section, recorded with the fantastic Capellen Orchestra in Zlin, Czech Republic. It is edited with the utmost care to preserve all the details and character of the performances.

We covered all of the most-used articulations in up to four velocities, and we devised a 'shared tail' system for the shorts that provides you with a greater variety of round robins without unnecessarily increasing the memory load.

Poly-Legato and Auto Divisi ensure the most realistic sound imaginable. No corners were cut in making this product, and it will evolve for many years to come. In fact, we still have some surprises up our sleeves that will enhance your user experience and provide tools that are useful and fun in equal measure.

Included within the instrument are some powerful midi engines with midi import, real-time midi manipulation, a piano roll editor and midi export. The possibilities are near endless once you scratch the surface, yet very easily accessible if you just want to compose quickly.

The Runs engine will trigger and play silky smooth runs whilst you hold chord notes. Just play a start and end key and these runs will adhere to your chosen chords and transition between all the applicable notes automatically.

The Phrases engine at its core works as a sketchpad for Patterns, with the core 12 patterns auto-saved with your instrument or DAW session. Going further, a potential 12 x 12 x 12 phrases can be saved away to be shared between your instruments and projects.

These phrases are then playable in a fashion very similar to the way our Phrase-Based instruments work. You can even drag in phrases from the Phrase-Based products you already own, edit them and tweak them to your liking, vastly boosting the flexibility of this Strings instrument. You can even drag out the midi for entire played passages including any chord changes, added Harmony etc. for use in third-party instruments or for instance to add a synth layer for a hybrid sound!


Sonokinetic Orchestral Strings is compatible with the free Kontakt Player version 6.6.1 or later and is also NKS compliant

The library is available for the very special introductory price of €199.99 until the end of the 12 days of Christmas (19th December). The price will then rise to €249.90 until 7th January after which the price will be €333.33. Lots more information available at ... s/?ref=kvr ... al-strings

Grats on the release! I really wish this had materialized a week or two earlier, before I *just* got some other library.

I'm definitely in the market for a Divisi library, so you have my interest, but I feel like I need to hear some more in-depth examples on what this library can do and its tone at its driest (so I can get a feel for how much room I have for designing my own spaces).

Hopefully you sort out the audio issues in the walk-through videos ASAP, and that someone takes a closer look at this library before the intro price expires.

Beautiful swells early on in that first video. It's sounding damn good.
