Vintage Strings is a virtual instrument for Kontakt 5 designed to emulate the classic violin string section sounds of R&B, Soul, and Funk records from the 1960′s and 1970′s. Whether you’re an experienced arranger or casual producer, Vintage Strings was designed to make it quick and easy for you to create great sounding string tracks for your productions. Like its sister product, Vintage Horns, Vintage Strings was not designed to be a shiny, perfect sounding virtual instrument. Instead, we tried to capture the way string sections sounded back in the ’60s and ’70s; including the decidedly not classical playing style and minor imperfections that added character to those sections and made them sound so good.
For Vintage Strings we recorded a 6 piece violin section using vintage Neuman U-87 mics and Royer ribbon mics run through a great sounding SSL board. To capture a true vintage string sound, we used close mics, room mics, and string section positioning based on actual session notes from old Motown and Philly Soul recording sessions. Rather than record the violins in a magnificent concert hall or some other large and resonant recording space, we recorded our players in a funky old studio with a smaller, less-reverberant room that had characteristics similar to the rooms used to record classic Soul and R&B records.

Impulse focuses on the Documentary, Foreign and Dramatic Guitar Styles and is a massive 5.5 GB collection (2.3 GB of 24-bit WAV files) of Cinematic Guitars. Even though Impulse is primarily focused on the Documentary, Foreign Film and Dramatic cinematic genres the library can very easily be used in virtually any cinematic style and genre.
Impulse contains 15 kits packed full of 100% real acoustic, electric and ethnic guitars. Each and every kit contains multiple unique guitars with styles including gorgeous chime guitars, luscious ukuleles, shimmery ambient guitars, baritone guitars, haunting resonator guitars, chilling acoustic slide guitars, banjos, tremolo guitars, rhythmic pulse guitars, swells guitars and so many more.

Impulse: Cinematic Guitar Series Kontakt version is part of our KLI Series and includes a custom user interface with various features to help make it easier to customize the included loops and sounds exactly how you want. You’ll find all loops automatically sync to your host tempo. Each loop is presented in three different ways.

Second, in the “Single Instruments” you’ll find the various guitars grouped together; giving you the option of having the construction kits content in just a few instruments. Third, each loop has its own patch in the “Sliced Loops” section with our custom loop editing interface. Rearrange, remix, or completely rework each loop to fit with your music exactly how you want. We’ve also included a demo section for quick auditioning of the entire library.
