A magnificent set of string players, an incredibly balanced room , state of the art equipment, and an exceptional team of sound engineers. Mix all of that together and you get the authentic sound of Hollywood. Right at your fingertips.
High standards of quality - that is the base of our foundation. All of our sample libraries are meticulously handcrafted, and every single sample is treated like a gem: carefully polished to bring out all their brilliance. This ensures you a buttery-smooth experience when making music. Carefully synced sample-starts and standardized pre-pads ensure that your performances will never be out of sync, while ensuring maximum realism.
We like things simple, yet effective. Countless hours were spent on making one of the most easy-to-use interfaces in the industry. Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned pro, we have you covered.
Nothing beats the nuances and subtleties of real Con Sordino samples. Con Sordino was recorded for Sustained for all the instrument sections, in three dynamics, vibrato and non-vibrato. Additionally, emulated Con Sordino is offered for the rest of the articulations.
Nothing beats the flow of real spiccato phrases. For achieving this, we recorded phrases and then we built multi-samples out of them. The result: the most realistic and playable spiccatos you will ever try.
Sometimes you just need to sketch out ideas quickly, and while key-switching is a great tool for expression, it can be quite time-consuming. That is where our Performance Patches come in.
For the first time in a strings sample library, you can play Measured Tremolo at any tempo, without any time-stretching. Either sequenced or as playable multi-samples. And we didn't stop there: you can also add accents in sequenced mode, and save/load accent presets.
In true Audio Imperia style, we provide you with some really unique sound design elements to enhance your experience with the library. Larger-than-life pads will bring your scores to the next level when mixed with the strings.
