Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale on the String Flow Cello Kontakt instrument library by Ben Osterhouse, offering a 50% discount through the end of the month.

The sample library delivers a technique string players use, in which they quickly roll the bow across the strings to create an energetic, chordal texture. The instrument can be played in two ways.

The first way is simple: just choose what type of chord you want, what key to be in, and then play on the white keys. Whatever you play will pick a harmony that will fit into whatever key you’ve chosen. It’s kind of like the “Harmonize” factory scripts in Kontakt, except that in this case, all of the harmonies had to be manually recorded!

The second way to play requires more knowledge of the instrument and is more flexible. If you play a chord that has been recorded, the instrument will play that chord on the cello. The midi clips which come with the instrument demonstrate which chords work.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher, String Flow Cello is only $25 USD until March 31st, 2022.
