Strezov Sampling is proud to present their first Solo Strings library focusing on expressive performances. Macabre consists of a sampled String Trio Violin, Viola and Cello recorded separately in their first chair positions in the Sofia Session Studio, where artists like Two Steps from Hell recorded their albums.
Macabre Solo Strings aren't the usual sampled Solo Strings. They were crafted with one particular sound in mind, which they deliver better than any other Solo String library out there. Macabre excels at slow emotional Solo String lines and on top of that you don't even need tons of programming to get stunning results with them. Just sit down and play. The samples themselves contain a huge amount of natural expressiveness, which makes it easier than ever to write realistic sounding Solo String lines.
*Cello only contains one Legato style
Die Macabre Solo Strings begeistern mit einem äußerst natürlichen und lebendigen Klang, der ohne Kompression und Nachbearbeitung auskommt. Die größte Stärke der Library ist zweifelsohne ihre ausdrucksstarke Spielbarkeit ganz ohne den Einsatz von Key-Switches. Besonders bei dem Legatospiel setzt die Kollektion Maßstäbe in puncto Realismus. Mit ihrem lyrischen, etwas dumpfen Klangcharakter eignen sich die Macabre Solo Strings besonders für langsame, emotionale Stücke.
Beat-Bewertung: 5.5 von 6
"I could easily float around the notes of my controller. The notes melted together in such a way, it sounded like a string instrument playing, rather than a sample being played on a keyboard."
"Ive never had a string library that felt as easy to play as Macabre Solo Strings. No keyswitch programming, no extensive button-workout. All you have to do is play, and thats very inspiring." 9.6/10

For me as a singer sonwriter macabre solo string is just great. It's easyto handle and has this beautifull warm and dark expression.
Ich benutze die Library zur Vertonung von Games und Filmen. Ideal für düstere, schwermütige Stimmungen. Schöner Klang.
As a film- and game composer who does a lot of mockups i am always looking for strong new additions to my arsenal. Macabre strings offer a very special and dark sound - absolutely beautiful and so easy to use. Not much editing needed. It just sounds incredibly out of the box. I can just recommend the library!
