Arctic Strings is a cinematic string library designed from the ground up for easy to use ambient sustained strings. It features flexible scripted legato and portamento/glissando. The interface is built around the northern lights, as you play the strings, the aurora swells and flows to the sound. This library is perfect for making atmospheric and ambient strings.

Overview: Products Included

Like many FrozenPlain libraries, Arctic Strings features a strong link between visuals and sounds. Strings can have an incredibly emotive sound that swells and flows. I began to draw a link between this and the real life spectacle of the northern lights. I imagined the strings swell and move in time to the aurora, this idea is what I have endeavoured to represent with the interface!

The samples are wide and lush stereo recordings from a medium sized string ensemble in a church. This library excels at strings for ambience and atmosphere. It it not a deep sampled and technical concert hall type library.

This product requires the paid version of Kontakt.
