Crocus Soundware has announced the release of a new sample library of closely recorded violin, viola and cello samples.

Powered by the free HALion Sonic SE plugin, Liminal Vol.1 Chamber String Textures features long and evolving aleatoric articulations, with the performer imparting character and movement into each sample.

Recorded closely and dry, the sounds are intended to add unpredictable nuance, detail and texture. This is not for fast passages or soaring melodies. It is especially suited as a collection of naturalistic pads for underscoring or ethereal soundscapes.

The user-interface allows articulations to be layered, mixed and reversed. LFO controls can be enabled, allowing your DAW’s tempo to dictate the modulation of an individual layer’s volume. This opens the door for tempo-synced swells and evolving texture.
