VST Buzz is offering Sketching Strings, a virtual string instrument designed to easily and quickly create string mockups on the fly.

The Kontakt instrument uses highly processed synthetic string samples to create a useful string patch that is lightweight and fast to work with.

Sketching Strings isn’t a high end string library – its not designed to be.

Instead it was designed as a tool to use for sketching out string tracks on the fly without having to wait for long periods of time while loading up the huge string patches for your libraries.

Its a lightweight and highly playable patch that uses processed synthetic sounds to create a string sound, letting you focus on writing melodic lines, harmony or runs etc. without having to think about anything else likes keyswitches, modwheel etc.

Sketching Strings features

  • Highlight any melody over the harmony.
  • Play with two hands without losing dynamics.
  • Perfect for the composition process.
  • Light on computer resources.
  • Can be used in commercial projects.

Sketching Strings is available from VST Buzz for 14.99 EUR. It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher.
