Spitfire Audio has announced London Contemporary Orchestra Strings, an upcoming Kontakt instrument library that offers everything you need to make cutting-edge strings music.

There is a shift in string writing that is becoming a global movement – based on innovative techniques and performance styles, it’s notoriously impossible to program with the tools currently available.

We’ve partnered with the London Contemporary Orchestra, whose work with the likes of Radiohead and Jed Kurzel (Alien: Covenant) has contributed significantly to this shift, to create a string library that gives you access to this unique, experimental palette.

This library contains multi-sampled violin, viola, cello and bass sections, and has been recorded at our dry stage in London. With a host of dynamically controllable, never-before-sampled articulations, this rich set of diverse recordings are both playable and musical, and will transform your work.

London Contemporary Orchestra Strings is available for pre-order for 289 EUR (regular 359 EUR). The library will be available February 23rd, 2017.
