Silence+Other Sounds has announced the release of its new SFX library and Kontakt instrument called Stringache, a collection of horror string noises, particularly focused on cinematic composition.

Silence+OtherSounds Stringache

Stringache is a modern horror library of mangled string noises. We’ve used close microphone techniques to record a huge deal of violin stabs and screeches, pizzicatos, cello staccatos, double bass jetè, crescendos, strident string gestures, bowed noises: all of them have been heavily processed and transformed in unsettling, hair-raising cinematic horror effects.

Stringache is for the contemporary composer of horror cinematic music: whenever you need a subtle violin effect to create tension, a rising cluster effect to grab the audience’s attention or a screaming, ear piercing string screech stab, Stringache will be your weapon.

Stringache features

  • 570+ sounds (96 kHz, 24 bit .wav).
  • Crescendos and mangled rising clusters (cello, viola, violin).
  • Piercing high note screeches and jump scares.
  • Dark cellos and double bass jetè.
  • Twisted string gestures.
  • Rhythms and clocks.
  • Construction kit of 270+ source recordings 96 kHz, 24 bit .wav (double bass, cello, viola and violin).
  • 14 Kontakt Instruments with a custom UI to further manipulate the sounds.

The library is on sale for the intro price of $29.50 USD until April 10th, 2019 (regular $59 USD).
