Plugin Boutique has launched a promotion on the Pattern Strings sample library by Ben Osterhouse, offering a 50% discount on the Kontakt instrument featuring unique string ostinato textures.

“Pattern Strings” offers a unique approach to ostinatos by providing a collection of tempo-synced rhythmic fragments. These 19 rhythms have been recorded at two dynamic layers on violin, viola, cello, and bass, with 4 round robins.

The interface utilizes an intuitive drag and drop mechanic which allows you to arrange the rhythms into sequences in which all the rhythms flow together with natural phrasing and musicality.

  • Dynamic loading script makes the instrument easy on memory, and provides the user a wide array of sounds from a single nki.

  • Panning for individual instruments.
  • Panning for each sequencer lane.
