The production-ready sound of String Ensemble is controlled with an interface designed for fast scoring. The detailed recordings provide one-of-a-kind scoring features providing professional film, gaming, and commercial scoring composers with the highest possible quality. The second in NI’s growing range of Symphony Series of orchestral scoring instruments, String Ensemble is available at the NI Online Shop for$AU699 and runs in Kontakt 5 or the latest version of the free Kontakt 5 Player.

Symphony Series – String Ensemble was recorded in collaboration with top software string instrument developer Audiobro. There are separate instruments for violins, violas, cellos and basses as well as an instrument for the full ensemble. A comprehensive list of long and short articulations, including sordinos, trills, staccatos and octave runs, were recorded in detail with separate half sections to ensure True Divisi. String Ensemble provides four stereo mixes – close, mid, far, and stereo – with dynamic loading for maximum efficiency. Special attention was given to the close mic mixes to deliver realistic sound even when soloed. Volume, pan and output routing for each position load individually, allowing a greater degree of control over the final mix.
