From the legendary artist, composer and string virtuoso Miroslav Vitous comes the String Ensembles virtual instrument. This collection is described as "a composer's dream" and is said to bring "a stunning level of elegance and expressiveness to the world of orchestral strings".
Two different ensembles are included: Large Orchestra (24 violins, 14 violas, 12 celli, and 9 basses) and Chamber Ensemble (14 violins, 8 violas, 5 celli, and 4 basses), and the collection offers individual control of each instrument section. Multiple articulations are included, such as long sustained notes, detaches, legatos, staccato, tremolo, sforzando, sul pont, and more.
Extensive custom programming yields unique results that distinguishes Miroslav's String Ensembles from any other string library. Sections respond musically and flexibly according to the performance of the player, automatically alternating samples and providing realism and vitality. The library is designed to be extremely easy to use; simply load up the desired patch and begin creating beautiful string arrangements.
