Cinesamples CineStrings Core v2.0 KONTAKT screenshot
CineStrings Core is a flagship orchestral strings library recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios by master engineer Dennis Sands. This library is part of the CineSymphony series and blends well with our CineBrass, CineWinds and CinePerc libraries from this same legendary Hollywood scoring stage. Version 2.0 features a brand new interface, a complete new sonic treatment for the samples, improvements to the scripting and Kontakt engine FX, and more!

Recorded at the world famous SONY Pictures Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and mixed by veteran legend Dennis Sands, the CineStrings Core Library covers the essentials of the orchestral string section, and functions as a foundation in any scoring palette. The result is a string library that is easy to use, composer-friendly, with unparalleled recording quality.

CineStrings Core does not require you to purchase any additional sample playback software, and is licensed to work with the Native Instrument’s free Kontakt Player. Explore the latest version of Kontakt HERE. All you need is a sequencer like Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, LIVE, Pro Tools, Cakewalk, or even Apple GarageBand and you’ll be up and running. You can also use CineStrings with your favorite notation software such as Sibelius or Finale.

Intuitive Graphical Interface
CineStrings Core (as with our other CineSymphony series libraries) has a very intuitive and easy to use graphical interface with quickly selectable presets that can help you write, program and mix tailored to your specific practices. The mapping page can quickly set you up for velocity, key-switching or even midi continuous controller (CC) articulation switching. Our mixer page allows you to quickly access our full mix or the four other microphone positions. The settings page allows for advanced control over each of these patches for sound design, programming and other useful features.

The CineStrings Core library contains the basic set of articulations needed to do most of the traditional writing and programming for the string section.

- Non-vibrato, vibrato and espressivo sustains with smooth dynamic morphing across five dynamics and across each vibrato position
- Natural legatos with smooth dynamic morphing across four dynamics
- Spiccato @ 7-8xRR @ pp to f
- Staccato @ 5-6xRR @ pp to fff
- Marcato @ 3xRR @ p to ff
- Sforzando Overlay @ p to ff
- Tremolos @ p to f
- Sul-Pont Tremolos @ p to f
- Trills (Whole-Step and Half-Step) @ p to f
- Pizzicato @ 5xRR @ p to f
- Bartok Pizz @ 3xRR
- Col Legno @ 3-5xRR
- Harmonic Sustains @ p to f

Unique Features
CineStrings Core offers many amazing features that distinguishes it from other libraries.

Our newest feature is the “Hairpin Creator”. This amazing setting allows for you to automatically get very natural “swells” without having to program a series of controller changes. Based on time or synced to your DAW, the strings can crescendo and decrescendo as you play, including linking a non-vibrato to espressivo state – this allows for amazing and expressive playing without having to touch any other controller!

When we released the CineBrass library we added a feature called “staccato overlay” – we have taken this in a new MAJOR direction with our new bow-attack overlay in CineStrings Core. You can quickly switch types of overlay (Marcato, Sforzando, etc) through a CC, which then is “overlayed” on the sustains and legatos each time you play at a hard velocity. This allows you to simulate many different styles of bow attacks and create unique playing styles on the fly and recall easily in your DAW.

Along with these features, expect a great deal of expansive programability with our interface. You can link the vibrato and dynamic controls, create your own unique mix and much more!

CineStrings Core v2.0 is scripted for Native Instruments' Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) format.

Works with the free NI Kontakt Player v6.7.1 and higherl!

Of course, a new interface with repeated samples in the same release. Everything new.

Is this lib still relevant in 2023?
  Resident 7.07.2016 7 888
Absolutely!!! There’s no doubt in my mind Cinestrings is in the top 10 “go to” library category. Just head to Vicontrol if you doubt me or YouTube, & see how many composers still have this chestnut in their template.
  Resident 16.03.2014 1509
I was actually putting it against the top three (Spitfire, Orchestral Tools and VSL).
