Buy Now - €280
Aria Sounds is very happy to bring you the LSS SOLO STRINGS. A sample library comprising of meticulously sampled solo violin, viola, cello and double bass instruments.

We have sampled these instruments in a large beautiful concert hall, with many microphones, making up four main, mixable mic perspectives, close mono, close pair, mid room and far room. The difference in perspectives is huge, meaning you can create sounds ranging from a very dry and up close sound, to a singing, naturally reverberated distant violin - as well as many degrees between the two.

Three legato modes were sampled - slurred, bowed and portamento. These are easily switchable during use via keyswitches, and one exceptionally useful feature, which we are shocked to say we rarely see in string libraries, is the ability to change bow on the same note. Simply hold the note you want to change bow on, and press the low G keyswitch (see screenshot below).

If you already own one or more instrument from the LSS Solo Strings bundle, and would like to complete the bundle - there are upgrade rates available - please e-mail [email protected] with your proof of purchase from the instruments you own and notify us that you would like to upgrade, for pricing information.
Staccato and whole tone trills are also included, with the staccatos having 24 variations per note so as to never sound repetitive - also switchable via keyswitch.

Another feature included is the ability to alter the release sound when the final note is played and released. A soft release is a normal removal of the bow from the string, but through keyswitching, you can also select hard release, which triggers a hard release. This is the sound of a player ending the note with a sharp crescendo and quick accented lift of the bow.

See below for audio and video demos - more coming soon!
The full version of Kontakt 4 or above is required to run this instrument. It will not run on the free version of Kontakt player.
