Stringache is a modern horror library delivering over 570 high-quality sounds made of processed string instruments noises. This collection has a great variety of elements that you can use for terrific stylish sound effects as well as to create horror cinematic music.
Vivaldi Would Get Scared!
This 1.8GB sound library has been created by recording high quality 24Bit 96kHz WAV. string instruments such as Violin, Cello, Guitar and Double Bass; it offers 300 designed sounds and 270 + raw sounds. All these instruments were captured by using close microphone techniques and playing styles such as pizzicato and staccato; therefore, the library contents a great number of sources to create terrific soundtracks and grab the viewer's attention.
The library is divided into 5 designed samples section and 1 raw source recording folder. The designed folder contains a great variety of designed sounds that will allow you to have a great starting point if your time is limited, bonus point!
Stringache is compatible with Kontakt (v 5.8.1 FULL), therefore you would be able to modify certain parameters in order to meet your criteria but don't panic if you are not a Kontakt user, you can also import every sound into your DAW or use your favourite audio sampler, as all the WAV. files are available in a separate folder.
Our favourite samples are probably the Cello Strokes, The Grain Viola and the Lament Reverse; these all are pre processed; if you are using them as WAV. file, it might limit your workflow to some extent as the sound already contents embedded reverb and it won't probably match what you are aiming for.
The Bottom Line
Stringache would be definitely a great addition to your sound library if you are working in a horror project, it contains a high quality audio content and it has been perfectly designed if you are aiming to complete a task in a short period of time. We at 344 Audio would be certainly using this product for our upcoming projects.
It is on sale for $29.50 (usually $59) until April 2019, don't miss out!
