Spitfire Audio has announced availability of Alternative Solo Strings, a Kontakt Player instrument library that offers an alternative take on a sampled solo strings.

The library puts performances of four of the most interesting and progressive string soloists in London into an easy-to-use tool to access Violin (Warren Zielinski), Viola (Joel Hunter), Cello (Chris Worsey), and Double Bass (Mary Scully) for detailed compositional work while offering anyone an instant, out-of-the-box virtual collaborative experience steeped in personality, quality, and distinction.

Alternative Solo Strings adds Double Bass and Viola to our previously released Artisan Cello and Artisan Violin libraries, all re-wrapped with a new interface and Kontakt Player compatible. This also happens to be our first solo double bass library.

All of these instruments carry the signature Spitfire sound – they are designed to provide you not only with that initial spark of inspiration but also to broaden your understanding of this particular group of instruments.

We pride ourselves on making precision tools for composers that deliver effectively on the current demands of the industry but we also believe that creating a series of edgy, raw musical tools that behave with a certain amount of realistic unpredictability leads to the most exciting results.
