Cinematic Strings 2 *New Youtube tutorial - Fast passages and Measured tremolo*

'New string library combines luscious rich sound with revolutionary new interface'

Life just became a lot easier for composers and producers alike with the release of Cinematic Strings 2.0. This latest version combines the warm rich tones of concert hall strings with a ground-breaking new GUI that is so easy to use that you will be pumping out pieces in record time.

We're composers, so we understand the frustration of spending countless hours installing, setting up, tweaking, applying FX and mixing, just to have your strings sounding right. Cinematic Strings 2 frees you from all those hassles by providing a simple installation process, a powerful GUI which allows instant access to all of the features you'd expect in a high end string library, and a professionally balanced mix – right out of the box.

Assigning Keyswitches and MIDI controllers, adjusting microphone balance, and controlling vibrato intensity are all within a few clicks. You'll have CS2 sitting alongside your other VSTi's in your template within minutes of installation, and since it's powered by the latest Kontakt Player, you wont have to worry about owning the full version of Kontakt. The most pleasant surprise of all is the new price - only $499!

Please check out our video introduction here:



Followed by our tech walkthrough video here:



And finally, here's a fully orchestrated piece I created earlier in the week. It took me a little over half a day to create this piece from scratch:

Congrats Alex!

I swore I didn't need any more string libraries..... Having to reconsider now..... the user interface is wonderful.

BTW, really great demo's as well. Simple. To the point. Really shows off the instrument.

this sounds amazing. I have 8dio Adagio (coming soon), VSL and Hollywood Strings, but I think I am going to buy this. The staccatos sounds so good and powerful, and all the library is very realistic. Nice product

Just picked these up - they are great for doing lush, big sounding arrangements quickly. Looking forward to digging deeper, but so far I am really liking them.

Hi all, I recently uploaded the first tips n tricks video blog, including a tutorial MIDI file!

This video touches on EQ and tempo automation, I'd love to know your thoughts on these topics. Feel free to leave a comment - let me know what other aspects you'd like to see covered in future videos.

The next planned video includes measured tremolo, so stay tuned...

What's up, y'all?

I'm a little behind the curve here, but was checking out the demos - and HOLY SMOKES - these strings sound freeking incredible! Most realistic I've heard yet.

I'm SERIOUSLY tempted here!

How are you guys digging it, so far?
