Zero-G Sample Libraries

Zero-G has announced the release of Shadow Strings. Made in collaboration with Ben Osterhouse (Osterhouse Sounds), Shadow Strings is a thriller cello library of multi-sampled pads, loops, and various string effects, to add suspense and mystery to your music. They say:

Welcome to Shadow Strings, a darker side of the cello that can add suspense, mystery, and a sense of uniqueness to any of your compositions. This ground-breaking Kontakt sample library pushes the boundaries of traditional cello sounds to offer a rich tapestry of unconventional textures and effects.

When recording sample libraries, you want to capture the best sounds from an instrument. You try to have clean starts and stops, an expressive tone, and balanced dynamics across every sample. With all this in mind, it can be difficult to keep a spontaneous, fresh feel to the samples. It can turn into a chore. The goal during planning and development this library was to avoid as much chore-like recording. Everything is played with abandon, then heavily curated and edited later to highlight the best moments.

Shadow Strings is not so much about recreating the sound of the instruments realistically and accurately --it's about finding sounds that work well when time-stretched, layered with synths, and fed through effects. Limitations breed creativity, and the cellos and piano used to make this library were the limitations.

Features:

  • Over 2000 individual samples - 2.29GB, 24-bit, 44.1kHz samples (.ncw format).

  • 58 Articulations.

  • 65 basic nki presets.

  • 50 designed nki presets.

Intro Price: $55.95 until Tuesday 16th May, 2024 (Reg. $69.95).
