Spitfire Audio has announced the availability of Epic Strings, a symphonic-sized string section inaugurating its new series of ORIG!NALS, captured at AIR Studios. The samples are available as AAX-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting plug-ins for use in DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) recordings.
As a symphonic-sized, 60-strong string section of London’s best players professionally recorded in the hallowed (Lyndhurst) Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios, Epic Strings features 11 different string articulations — Live; Short; Short Ostinato; Short (Octave); Pizzicato; Long; Long (Octave); Long (Slow); Long CS; Long CS (Octave); and Long CS (Slow)
— alongside three different signal settings — Room, a combination of Tree, Ambient, and Outrigger mics; Close, adds definition to the Room signal; and Stretch, a stretched version of the Room, creating an ambient, synth-like texture.
Epic Strings includes easy-to-use reverb, release, and tightness controllers, together with simple sliders for level and dynamics adjustment, and a large (virtual)‘knob’ for additional control of the three controllers. Epic Strings can also be quickly customized to accommodate the personal workflow of any user.
