Incredible string library with expressive controls and detailed articulations.
Native Instruments SESSION STRINGS PRO is a state-of-the-art collection of sampled studio strings. With its immaculate, intimate quality, unique musical workflow and a vivid, modern edge, SESSION STRINGS PRO is a perfect choice for pop, R&B and more. But NI's SESSION STRINGS PRO is more than just a string library. Creating natural, expressive string tracks in the highest possible quality has never been more immediate, or more rewarding.
The sound of SESSION STRINGS PRO is close, detailed and intimate, an essential alternative to orchestral strings. Meticulously sampled and designed to sit well in the mix, each of the four ensembles consists of five instrument groups: full ensemble, four violins, three violas, two cellos and two basses. Play full ensembles, mapped across the keyboard, or individual instrument groups.
Multiple velocity layers and 29 articulations provide a wide, expressive range. With smooth looping, beautifully fluid transitions and up to four round robin samples per note, SESSION STRINGS PRO delivers a strikingly natural sound. What’s more, an additional set of presets provides the glamorous sound of vintage soul and disco.
The defining quality of this instrument is musical flow. Designed by musicians for musicians, SESSION STRINGS PRO provides tailored workflows for performance and production, supporting the creative process, rather than getting in the way. You can play chords and monophonic lines at the same time, and all 29 articulations are available in a single interface. And for instant rhythm, the Animator transforms the chords you play into lively rhythmical phrases.
SESSION STRINGS PRO provides detailed control, right down to the amount of bow noise. Choose between classic or pop instrument placements. Experiment with close and wide microphone positions, or combine two ensembles for a full, widescreen sound. All ensembles are provided as two different preset types: performance, for playing with two hands on the keyboard, and production, for assigning key switches.
The clarity, warmth, and character of these strings has been achieved using the very best equipment for outstanding sound quality. Every note is expertly played by virtuosos from Europe’s top orchestras, and the instruments used were hand-picked Italian antiques, including an exquisite cello from 1685.
