Soniccouture has announced the release of its first orchestral strings instrument. Threnody takes a journey to the darker side of strings with a 60 piece orchestra.

THRENODY samples a massive string section of 60 musicians, creating a textural playground of col legno clattering, clusters, ‘clouds’ of activity, and arcs of glissandi. Avant-garde & extended playing techniques like these have long been a foundation for sci-fi and horror soundtracks, where the orchestra becomes a shifting edifice of sound.

THRENODY features 26 different articulations sampled across the entire orchestral range, which can be layered with an XY controller to create entirely new orchestral shapes and movements.

Threnody is powered by the free Kontakt Player 6 and NKS. It is on sale at an introductory 20% discount, priced 199 EUR / $239 USD until June 4th, 2021 (regular 249 EUR / $299 USD).
