Another week another new string library to consider. This time it’s Orchestral Tools’ new Berlin Symphonic Strings. This is a new library that is run on the OT SINE player and is, at least advertised as, the most realistic string library out there as far as their legato articulations which make for smoother and more realistic melodic playing and fast legato runs and ostinatos. Of course there are more articulations than just legatos.
Another new aspect of this library is running on OT’s SINE player with a novel scripting that allows this huge and detailed sample library to run with a very small amount of your computer’s resources.
So far, with the demos and samples pieces I’ve heard, this sounds extremely realistic and has a great “film score” sound as it was recorded at Berlin’s Teldex studio. As if I need MORE string libraries, but this might be the one that has the closest sound to what I want and I’ve been slowly buying individual instruments from OT’s other libraries and so far, I’ve found them to be among the best sounding I have.
What are your thoughts? Would you consider this library?
