* Due to the large size of the torrent file itself (more than 6 mb.), the distribution had to be divided into 3 parts.
We have been listening to the community and have now updated our critically acclaimed Intimate Studio Strings based on your feedback, with a variety of enhancements to the internal mapping along with other general improvements. We have also optimized the entire library for Kontakt 5.8, allowing for advanced features and superior performance.
Intimate Studio Strings now also features our latest Chaos Effects 4.0, allowing you to customize the signal path and post-processing of your ensemble with over 140 impulse responses, stereo delays, EQ and much more.
Perhaps the most crucial components to this update are the extended articulation patches. You can now use our “Poly-Time” articulations to playback Bowed Arcs at a speed that suits your composition, as well as fluently and effortlessly play all the Bowed and Performance driven playing styles in a legato fashion, allowing for flowing melodic lines. We have also implemented our latest “Chordal” legato mode, which features a true polyphonic legato with accurately sampled intervals, enabling you to play multiple harmonies within a single track.
