Cinematic Tension Strings

Dive deeper into the abyss with this master of tension & terror.

Constrictor is dark, Constrictor is eerie, Constrictor is unnerving. A string library with a nightmarish purpose that will help you set the tone for thrilling atmospheres and gripping suspense.


Constrictor is designed for a unique mission. Instead of focusing on traditional articulations, it embraces the unconventional, offering you tools to create tension, horror, and an array of dark, unnerving atmospheres.

What’s Included?

Beyond the Ordinary

Whispers from the Shadows

A Spectrum of Darkness

Where most libraries conclude, Constrictor begins. Journey beyond our Nucleus and Areia strings, taking you from the edge of standard articulations, right into the heart of the unknown.

From eerie, hushed murmurs to booming cries of terror, harness the sheer force and spectrum of emotions that only Constrictor can offer.

At the core of Constrictor lies a versatile toolkit: from haunting melodies to chilling sustains that set the ambiance, and the innovative FX that inject distinctive character into your creations.

Recorded with Budapest Scoring

Craft not just music, but immersive experiences. Recorded at the revered Rottenbiller recording stage with 10 Violins, 4 Violas, 4 Cellos, and 3 Double Basses, Constrictor benefits from a synergy of masterful musicians, expert contractors, and seasoned sound engineers.

Budapest Scoring has become a sought-after destination for film scoring sessions and has worked on projects with renowned composers such as Jerry Goldsmith, Jung Jae-il, Michel Legrand, Alan Menken, Ennio Morricone, Alan Silvestri, Kevin Kiner, Danny Elfman, and many others.

This potent combination forms a true recipe for success. Let Constrictor guide you through realms uncharted, where every string pluck becomes an exploration of the beautifully eerie.
