Spitfire Audio Spitfire Studio Strings v1.0 b19 KONTAKT-DECiBEL screenshot
Team DECiBEL | 05 Sep 2020 | 12.29GB
YOUR CREATIVITY, YOUR CONTROL
Spitfire Studio Strings marks the first release of a vital all-new Spitfire Orchestra range. Our ambition was to create an incredibly versatile pro-end dry stage sample library. By choosing the crisp and vibrant setting of Air Studio One, a smaller, more controllable space than the opulent Lyndhurst Hall, we offer our fellow composers a string library with depth, detail and focus all at once. One that will work on anything from passionate period dramas to modern Scandi noir. It's a fit for quirky indie and crisp pop, but can also tackle epic film and game scores.



A NEW CHAPTER
This new set of orchestral libraries, two years in the making, has all of the treasured Spitfire hallmarks: A-list London session players, priceless instruments and an unparalleled signal path recorded to tape by Grammy award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes. As with our existing symphonic and chamber ranges, we have applied a "no stone unturned" approach: an encyclopaedia of articulations (playing styles), vibrato control and numerous dynamic layers and round-robins for seamless, nuanced realism.

Our new Studio Strings package is a medium chamber (or small symphonic) ensemble recorded by section (1st violins, 2nd violins, violas, cellos and double basses), and is available in two versions: Spitfire Studio Strings, and the more extensive Spitfire Studio Strings Professional.

Spitfire users now have a comprehensive range of orchestral manoeuvres. We believe Studio Strings suits users of our existing Lyndhurst Hall ranges as an essential sonic alternative. It is also perfect for those looking to buy a strings library that will give them the most bang for their buck - usable in the widest range of musical settings, ready for your own favourite reverbs and FX. With the versatility we have engineered into this library, we have no doubt that Spitfire Studio Strings will be a cherished part of your music-making over the next decade.

Spitfire Studio Strings takes you straight to the heart of our most pristine orchestral library to date: 148 articulations across the full 30-piece string section (8.6.6.6.4), from soaring legato and our signature whispering super-flautando, right down to spiccato, hairpins, grace notes, and FX. Immediately usable, instantly compelling.

Depends on what you wanna do. If you want soft, quiet and lush sounds for scoring under dialogue or something I prefer Spitfire but for everything else I would chose other libraries, especially if you want modern big and loud sound with dynamics going all the way to fortissimo.

I would choose CSS overall, I like it more, it's very versatile and blends excellently with all other strings libraries I have. This is a basic version of Studio Strings, so you're only gonna get Decca Tree mic and smaller sections, but this library is almost 3 times smaller than CSS, which is about 32 gbs, so if you're low on storage, this might be the one for you. I would also recommend to check out Audio Imperia Areia, I think it's just as good as CSS and it has real sampled con sord. but it's double the size of CSS at around 63 gigs.

The professional version of Studio Strings is over 200 gigs..

Which is ridiculous because it's just mostly extra mics. Taken from their website:

The Core version of Studio Strings features a standard (8, 6, 6, 6, 4) player setup, with access to the default Tree microphone position. With Professional, you have access to 7 extra unique microphone positions, a large band section (16, 12, 12, 12, 4) and 2 divisi sections (4, 3, 3, 3), on top of what is offered in the Core version. You can use these divisi options to create a chamber section, or even layer them with larger sections.


They say besides basic Decca Tree mic from Core version they have 7 more microphone positions in PRO version. On screenshots I can only see 6 at a time. They have 2 Close mics, 2 Trees, 1 Ambient and 1 Outriggers for all instruments, so 2 others are probably used only on specific instruments or articulations, or maybe the mic setup is different between smaller and bigger sections.

I think it's overkill because there's barely any difference between these different versions of close and tree mics. If we take these extra mics away and just leave it with standard CTAO selection, it would shave off at least 60 or 80 gigs, which would bring it closer in size to Areia which also has 4 mic positions and 2 stereo mixes on top of that.

Studio Strings would still be bigger in size because it has a lot of extra advanced articulations, extra sections with more players, and smaller sections are additionally split into divisi sections. If we remove those extra sections, I think the library would have been just about 70-80 gigs, almost like Areia, just with more articulations.

I think it would have been better if Core version had smaller section and CTAO mics like a proper library, and Pro version had bigger section and divisi and also just CTAO mics. It would bring the size down substantially and you could just buy the library you want. If you need smaller section, go for Core, bigger section that you can split and have more control over, go for Pro. No need to waste your space on things you never gonna use cause I doubt anyone actually needs all these mics, both the bigger and smaller section and a divisi on top of that.

Don't forget that those extra mic positions are not real recordings, just mockups created with different effects that you can do as well.
And don't forget that all of these different strings libraries by SF are just revamped versions of the good ol' Albion samples, regardless of different section size or style.

Hello Bobdule , Old post I know but where do you put the fix? I assume the Instruments folder just overwrites what's inside but do i just need to put the nkx files into the sample folder? Or just in the main folder to work? Thanks for your help :)

Wow, thanks for all the Spitfire releases in the last time here!

Even though I must confess it´s a bit confusing how many different string libraries they have (not even counting the solos) and for what purpose each is suited best.

The problem is that it seems to be a taboo to say what your library is for nowadays. As a company you GOT to hide your intentions behind cryptic promotion blabla, as if it´s a nuclear accident and you are a politician who wants to cover it up.
Hey, companies: Don´t make it a secret what your libraries are for. No one will rip your head off! In fact, users would like to clearly know, believe it or not!

Areia is too big, in the sense that 16 violins is way too many. Play a 3-note chord and it's 48 players! And no dedicated 2nd Violins.

It sounds great; but it turns into a big synth pad the more parts you add... just too thick.

We need more 6-5-3-3-2 section libraries.

yeah I think I'll put a moratorium on strings and brass for a while. It's good to make a rule that if one comes in, one must go.

Excellent!

Such sound is needed most if the music isn't classical or soundtrack, so they can cut through synth.s or distorted guitars.

I hope we'll see the rest of the studio series soon.
