Neocymatics Hybrid Strings

Neocymatics has announced Hybrid Strings, a virtual string instrument library for Native Instrument Kontakt.

After a long period of detailed research, development and fine-tuning Neocymatics is proud to announce the release of Hybrid Strings, a Kontakt Library that will bring a new perspective to VST Strings.

The purpose of Hybrid Strings is to serve as a Solo String Library but also as a Section one. Our aim was to achieve the highest playability and expressiveness possible in real time, with no compromise in quality or diversity.
