Big Fish Audio has released Vintage Strings, a virtual instrument for Kontakt 5 and Kontakt 5 Player designed to emulate the classic violin string section sounds of R&B, Soul, and Funk records from the 1960s and 1970s.
Whether you’re an experienced arranger or casual producer, Vintage Strings was designed to make it quick and easy for you to create great sounding string tracks for your productions.
Like its sister product, Vintage Horns, Vintage Strings was not designed to be a shiny, perfect sounding virtual instrument. Instead, Big Fish Audio tried to capture the way string sections sounded back in the ’60s and ’70s; including the decidedly not classical playing style and minor imperfections that added character to those sections and made them sound so good.
Vintage Strings features
- 3 group sizes: 2, 6, and 12 players.
- Recorded with the highest quality vintage outboard gear.
- 11 articulations.
- Auto harmonization feature for impressively quick arranging.
- Hand selected IR options available for the convolution reverb.
- 5.1GB (uncompressed).
- Kontakt Player 5 included.
The library is available for purchase for $199.95 USD.
