The London Symphonic Strings, Volume 1 is now out!

The New Comprehensive, Raw String Orchestra Sample Library

We are very happy to announce that the first volume of the London Symphonic Strings library for Kontakt 4 and above, is now out!

This is a fantastic, fluid, and beautifully raw sounding library. You will find multiple types of legato including normal fingered, portamento (sliding), playable long glissandos, legato muted, legato sordino, legato sul tasto. As well as all the essential tools for a composer's pallete, including spiccato, legato, with multi dynamics, pizzicato, tremolo etc, there is also a lovely range of more rarely sampled articularions such as martele - a short articulartion that can be very powerful when used effectively - colle, another short articulation, col legno, various sound effects and percussive effects, and much much more...

New Instruments - New Design, and Fantastic Things to Come

See what Aria Sounds has in store!

With a fresh new look, great new plans for some fantastic sampled instruments and libraries (including orchestral strings - see below this), we are happy to release our ethnic flutes. The Chinese Xiao, Indian Bansuri, and Bolivian Pan Flute (Pan Flute only available with the Ethnic Flutes Bundle).

All three flutes were recorded with an exceptionally skilled ethnic flutes specialist, with some brilliant new facilities and equipment, with stunning true legato on the Bansuri and Xiao, plus a great little system for shaping a musical phrase and sounding as human as possible.
