Sound Magic has announced the release of Cadenza Strings, a hybrid modeled virtual instrument featuring a full string section.

Sound Magic Cadenza Strings

Cadenza Strings recorded as a full symphony string section, which features 40 players, 16 violins, 12 violas, 8 cello and 4 basses; all handpicked session musicians who appear in New York Premium recording studios. This Library features rich, open and full string sound by using the best recording gears available today including Neumann Vintage Microphones, Prism AD/DA and SSL 9000K. Cadenza Strings also includes Cadenza Violin as its First Chair Violin.

To capture the string section in great detail, Sound Magic not only uses 32Bit/192KHz to record the samples which keeps the original sound in maximum freshness and liveness, but also using different microphone perspectives that will give musicians more freedom in shaping the final sound.

It’s this sound that leads Sound Magic to expand its Modeling Legato technology to bring musicians even more creative musical freedom. It is capable of supporting any technique, patches, or articulations with more control over the parametric. This allows musicians to manipulate shapes and sound variety in real time with smoother transitions between notes than a sampled legato.
