Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Zilhouette Strings, a new string instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Zilhouette Strings is the first pure string library we are releasing and we are very excited about it!
It includes 7 violins, 2 viola, 7 cellos and 2 basses in total. The musicians we recorded are german-known session and live orchestra musicians. All content was recorded in several recording sessions in our own recording rooms in a close and intimate distance to the instrument in a solo as well as in a trio situation. We have used condenser mics such as Neumann U-87 and TLM 103, Schoeps MK4 as well as dynamic mics such as Sennheiser MD421, AKG D112 among others.
In summary, you get a collection of string sounds which is directly at your fingertips. You can quickly select the amount of player, mix the separate instrument groups at your own requirements, select the kind of seating and place them into an ambience – and that´s all with an intimate, natural and catchy sound.
The sample library is available for purchase for 135 EUR / $150 USD. A purchase includes Intimate Piano as a bonus. Requires Kontakt 4 or higher.
