WITH SO MANY GREAT LEGATO STRING LIBRARIES OUT THERE, WHY ANOTHER ONE?
MusicalSampling wanted performances that catered to… (yes, I have to say it) soaring string lines and dramatic passages by having the players really dig in with the vibrato and giving all they had with the triple forte dynamic. This also meant approaching the sessions in a unique, musical way to capture the kind of singular legato MusicalSampling were looking for.
Another focus was to dial things back with what they felt was necessary to produce credible string arrangements in a shorter amount of time. This involved creating a single, natural mix and omitting seldom-used legato articulations. Also, developed a “Sustain Sync” feature that synchronizes the starting sustain with the following intervals/repetitions, which saves you from having to make adjustments to start-notes to closely match the intervals timing upon quantization. Lastly, they included a “To Silence” button that can enable the modwheel to completely diminish the softest dynamic to silence. This not only provides unique possibilities with expression, but also saves the need to use another controller to simulate a decrescendo to ‘niente’.
MusicalSampling also agreed that recording medium-sized ensembles in their traditional seating arrangement would not only provide enough “solo-istic” detail in the recordings, but would have a more natural transparency when writing harmonies.
