Best Service has released Alpine Volksmusik 2 for Engine, created in cooperation with V3 SOUND.
Alpine Volksmusik 2 is the sequel to the Alpine Volksmusik Library offering 42 unique patches for folk and brass music. The library covers all the instruments you need for the authentic production of Swiss Folk Music, Austrian Stubenmusik and German Marching Music.
All instruments were carefully recorded and offer different articulations that can be keyswitched to deliver authentic sounds.

With the excellent instruments of this library you can arrange well-known and new songs in your composition software according to your own needs and wishes in high quality.
