Soundiron has released Hyperion Strings Micro, an introductory orchestral string library for Native Instruments' free Kontakt Player, Komplete Kontrol and S-Series Keyboards. This library is described as "the perfect starter pack for songwriters and musicians just getting into orchestral writing, as well as seasoned composers wanting new colors in their orchestral palette".
Hyperion Strings Micro has a forward and robust sound, recorded close in a dry sound-stage, so it can be spatialized into any mix or environment. It suitable for any musical style from rock, pop and EDM, to fully orchestral compositions. It's detailed, configurable and feature-rich to allow total customization, but every detail has been carefully designed to make this virtual instrument naturally usable without any learning curve.
It includes section presets for 8 Violins, 6 Violas, 5 Cellos, 4 Basses and the combined full Ensemble. Articulations for each section include multi-dynamic sustains, staccatos, spiccatos and pizzicatos, dynamic crescendos and decrescendos.
