Strings of Winter - an icy blast of new sounds Arctic plains. Shimmering glaciers. Far-reaching steppes. A one-of-a-kind instrument that perfectly captures the spirit of these rough, untamed and raw landscapes. An absolutely honest and atypical new sound that portrays scenes of fragile, cold isolation as perfectly as icy and unbridled power. Strings of Winter is here with 60 unheard and pristine articulations performed by a 41-piece European string orchestra and the wonderful and unique Mongolian State Morin Khuur Ensemble. "TO Strings of Winter" is an independent instrument and revolutionary Kontakt Player library based on the groundbreaking Ensemble Engine developed specifically for "The Orchestra", which lets you turn your ideas into music quickly and easily. "TO Strings of Winter" introduces a highly requested, new feature, MIDI Export! Simply drag and drop the MIDI from the Engine right into your favorite DAW. You can change notes and rhythms afterwards for every exported clip. Thus making it a breeze to create variations and emotional changes, without overwriting the arpeggiators and envelopes. You can also use those MIDI files with different instruments - even from other sample libraries. European String Orchestra A 41-piece string orchestra split into 5 sections performed a number of detailed and extended techniques for Strings Of Winter (eg Trills, Sul Ponticello, Harmonics, Col Legno, Bartók Pizzicato). The resonance and raw complexity of these new articulations was captured in the classic room of Studio 22 in Budapest. All sections were recorded in their traditional seating position.
