Performed by some of the most progressive avant garde string players in London today and recorded dry at the amazing Air-Edel studios via the finest vintage mics, neve pre-amps and vintage Cadac desk. Spitfire went about recording 48 different and very long Evos. Not just tense, mysterious and frightening Evos as with Scary Strings. But also intensely beautiful, tender and moving. Recorded across 12 intervals, and arranged on a 12 x 48 grid the true genius of this library lies in its interface.
With a GUI Inspired by the EMS VCS3 you can instantly select (or peg) what evo sits on each of the 12 key ranges. This gives you literally an almost infinite number of personalised configurations. Toggle your pegs around, or hit "Randomise", replay the MIDI and no cue will ever sound the same twice! The "pièce de résistance" here though is the ability to play ultra minimal music whilst holding your audience captive with the ever changing kaleidoscope of progressive string techniques.
Whilst playing the material orchestrated by Ben Foskett, Spitfire couldn't stop theirselves from creating an additional 5 grids of awesome warped, saturated and totally transformed versions of each and every Evo.
Spitfire have specially curated these extraordinary Evos into a number of spring-out-of-the-box patches. These demonstrate not only the tense and extreme elements of the library but also the heart breaking beauty and fragile timidity.
From simple "tutti" patches containing all 288 Evos spread evenly across your keyboard to diagonal patterns, specially curated peg patterns and a feature for you to randomly created peg patterns from the near infinite number of possible configurations. With a number of FX accessible from the front panel this is a tool designed for producers, composers, sound designers and editors needing spellbinding, award winning material from the minute your finger hits the keyboard.
Based on the EMS VCS3 synth, this extraordinary and unique interface allows for instant gratification, customisation. With 1 or 2 clicks you will be armed with something totally unique and inspiring. Scroll the evo grid to discover and activate all 48 Evos. Pan and tweak each Evo for perfect blending punch in or out 3 useful modulators and effects, mix your mic positions all from the front panel.

I havent had as much fun with a string library as this one, i like the exploring part and the customization level of it. The diversity it brings is incredible. Its so simple and straightforward and you get to start creating from the get go. Its a great mood changer and it has really helped me out in creating atmospheric, eerie and mysterious tracks.
