Orchestral Tools releases Tableau Chamber Strings — Full string sections with an expressive sound tableau

Orchestral Tools

Orchestral Tools has announced the release of Tableau Chamber Strings, a new sample library that gives composers and producers instant access to meticulously captured, unprocessed string sounds for films, games, and contemporary music productions. Here's what they say:

A perfect complement to the previously released Tableau Solo Strings, this new library includes a comprehensive chamber-sized string section, recorded on Berlin's famed Teldex Scoring Stage for an authentic and production-ready sound. Pre-recorded dynamic articulations and melodic legato sampling enable users to construct natural, expressive parts.

Tableau Chamber Strings delivers rich string sounds with 20 instruments: 5 first violins, 4 second violins, 4 violas, 4 celli, and 3 basses. All instruments were recorded in situ, with musicians in traditional seating positions, to give users the balanced, natural sound of a full chamber ensemble.

The new library was recorded with talented players on the large Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin—the same location used for Tableau Solo Strings as well as Orchestral Tools' own Berlin Series libraries. All sections were recorded with multiple mic positions, so that users can dial in a finely-tuned mix, or set up the mic channels for surround sound.

Instruments were captured using a single dynamic layer approach, which allowed players maximum freedom of expression during the sampling session. The players also recorded multiple dynamic articulations—swells, crescendos, and decrescendos—plus sustains and spiccato notes, giving users key ingredients for creating dramatic, emotional passages. In addition, long, melodic legato phrases were recorded within musical contexts to provide the most natural, realistic sound.

Tableau Chamber Strings is part of the Organic Samples series, developed in collaboration with composer Maxime Luft to produce easy-to-use sample libraries that facilitate creative expression.

Intro Price: €119 until July 15, 2021, through the Orchestral Tools website (Reg. €179). Prices quoted are excluding VAT—VAT may be added on purchases from within the EU.

Tableau Chamber Strings runs in the free SINE player.
