Restrung Volume 1, the next installment in our Artist Series, is a new solo string library (Violin, Viola and Cello) that is a truly unique sounding solo string instrument, giving you a raw, close, visceral sound you just won't find anywhere else. If you are writing Neo Classical, Tension or Horror music, you'll find this sound to be very inspiring. It also works very well as a top-layer with your orchestral strings to give them some extra punch and grit in the mix!

Recorded with the extremely talented Joni Fuller (yourstringsattached), each string instrument was multi-sampled across 3 octaves with multiple velocity layers, multiple round robins and 8 different articulations. All recordings were made in a very tight room, using the same setup used to record the strings in our popular Unstrung library.

The performance of each articulation is very aggressive, played with tension and horror cues in mind and leaving the beautiful imperfections in place to give you a very realistic and raw sound. 

To add extra grit, we multi sample an extra 3 octave layer of noisy, screechy, beautifully hideous notes for each of the 3 articulations: Spiccatissimo, Spiccato, Staccato. Each of the other articulations can also choose to overly any of these extra aggression layers to give them harder attacks and unique sound combinations. 

Restrung Volume 1 provides 3 Kontakt (6.7.1+) instruments and installs via Native Access. This, of course, means that it is also available for use in the Free Kontakt Player. It is fully NKS compatible, giving you total control over all the parameters via your NKS compatible keyboard.

This is unique and offers something others don't. The bite and crisp detail of the bowing is what othera all lack. The sort string are superb. The aggression setting, saturation is like a built in Decapitator. Highly recommend and a bargain at the price. These are great on their own or the extra layer needed on top of larger sections.

Unique and Inspiring!

I’ve been using Restrung to layer with existing strings and I’ve found it fun and inspiring as an NKS library! It has a tight sound for fast lines where string shorts get inarticulate in some of my other libraries. Otherwise, they add weight and heft to even smooth, emotive lines. I love it!

Hey... I love your libraries!

Amazing strings.

Great for solo and for layering with other libraries to add attack and uniqueness to the sound.
Simple interface with all the necessary settings.
The aggression layer is a very cool solution, I use it regularly.
I am very pleased with the purchase!
