Hello Composers, Mike here!
Here is my live performance using the new Sample Modeling Strings. It’s great for playability, and especially for fast playing and changes of articulations without using key switches. However, I find that the tone of long sustained notes is still a bit lacking sometimes. What is your personal overall impression of Sample Modeling Strings?
Live Demo of the Sounds of Sample Modeling Strings:
I’m not impressed at all by this library, to be honest. It sounds super synthy to my ears and the legato patches are absolutely terrible in my opinion. I prefer the Strezov Afflatus that you reviewed before, they sound so much better
I agree legato is pretty bad, and vibrato is not good at all. Yes, Afflatus is my favorite string library by far. However, I would love to have this playability that sample modeling has, in other string libraries. I hate keyswitches and “programming” music. I want to be able to play like I did in this video, changing between staccato, legato, runs etc, and add expression with CC-faders, and not having to program key switches at all. Keyswitches are the devil lol
