Zilhouette Strings is a collection of string instruments.
It includes 7 violins, 2 violas, 7 cellos and 2 basses in total. The musicians
who were recorded are german-known session and live orchestra
musicians. Everything was recorded in several sessions in the CI
recording rooms in Cologne – done in a close and intimate distance to
the instrument as well as in a solo and trio situation. They used
condenser mics such as Neumann U-87 and TLM 103, Schoeps MK4 as
well as dynamic mics such as Sennheiser MD421, AKG D112 among others.
Zilhouette Strings is a collection of orchestral string sounds which are
directly at your fngertips. You can quickly select the amount of player
(Players), mix the separate instrument groups at your own requirements,
select the kind of seating and place them into an ambience. That´s it –
and all with an intimate, natural and catchy sound.
Zilhouette Stings are extremly fexible and you can surely use them for a
wide range of musical genres.This leads to many more ensemble variations than initially thought by
leaving out single instruments or instrument groups. You are even able to
play solo instruments by selecting – for example – the quartett ensemble
and turn down three of the four instrument groups.
Sweetness:
Zilhouette Strings provides a sweetness function which lets the overall
sound of all instruments change from natural (left end position) to sweet
and smooth (right end position). By using this option you can easily let
Zilhouette Strings sound further away.
Seating:
Besides adjusting your favourite type of player ensemble you can also
decide the kind of seating, available is the „American“ or the „German“
seating. In order to generally set all panning to center please use the
“of” option.
