Realsamples has released Analogue Strings, a sample CD that delivers a sought-after analogue synth monster of the seventies, the Eminent String Ensemble. The whole four string sections of this device are included as well as its more specialized successor, the Arp Solina.
Most people know its organic pads from productions like Pink Floyd, Supertramp or Styx.
Recorded by the Canadian producer April May, all four polyphonic string sections were sampled chromatically and without loops.
Presets are available for Halion, Reason, Kontakt 2, EXS24, Soundfont, VSampler3 and GigaStudio.
Realsamples Analogue Strings is available on CD for $34.95. MP3 demos are available.
