Angel Strings Vol 1

 Welcome to angel strings vol 1 or Dex brand-new orchestral strings library introducing articulations and techniques which have never been sampled before and

pushing others that have even further there are many things that make angel strings special when it comes to string libraries we'll start out by looking at the interface angel strings volume 1 is

made up of three main NKI files runs and Tremeloes this allows you to play sequenced fast alternate bowed measured tremolo by holding down notes and chords which will lock into your doors tempo as well as play bode runs with your

controller SFX where you will find the more gritty atonal articulations which will serve hybrid electronic orchestral and horror-themed music very well and tonal Long's and shorts that contain

the more nice and lush sounding articulations will go straight into the SFX NKI to start with and straight away you can see here we have two tabs the first tab which opens up shows you your articulations which can be changed by clicking on the icons or by pressing

their respective key on your midi controller to change an articulations key switch key on your keyboard click the little keyboard below an articulation and then press the key on your controller which you want to set

the key switch to some articulations have s-start sliders these are simple sample start sliders that allow you to set the articulation so that when you play a key it starts playing further on in the sample this is useful for chopping or shortening slides

and glides in the samples to taste the second tab is where you will find your mixer here you can turn on or off any of the 10 included mic positions and blend them to taste you can also route each position to its own output from within

contact at the bottom there is a filter and connected adsr envelope which you can use to add further elements of sound design to the instrument we're going to take a look now at the tonal Long's and shorts NKI sus and mark

is your standard sustained patch how our G play will affect the attack of the note with the highest velocity creating a harsh Marcato and the softest creating a very long swell attack to the note the cluster - you knee articulation which has to crossfade herbal dynamic layers is where every player starts on a different note and they all then glide together and land on the same note at the same time playing chords with this creates an amazing effect Sau lt auto is an extremely lush and warm articulation created by playing with the bow very far from the bridge Tambor asked is a sort of synchronized.

boat trill sounding like a natural oscillation a very unique and interesting effect [Music]

Suhel Monticello is the opposite of salt a stow the bow is played very near the bridge creating a harsh sound with loads of very intrusive harmonics there is also a tremolo salt Pont articulation

the bends are small synchronized slides that get very interesting when mixed

with Tunes and chords really great for

electronic orchestral hybrid music this Peccato articulation is a massive 15 round-robin spicata patch that can

sound quiet and intimate and apocalyptically huge.

finally, there is an alternative shorts articulation a salt ass toe staccato

a patch that ended up unintentionally sounding very baroque or classical take a look at some of the articulations in the SFX patch we have here Rises with different attacks a smooth attack and a harsh one sampled across every string section on every string.

the dives or dive bombs are falling glissandos which land on the notes you play the trem bridge and sus bridge are some very nasty sounding tones created by playing the small section of the string behind the bridge of the instrument, scratched home is created by over

pressing the strings there are multiple dynamic layers here crossfade able with the mod will percussive sounds include various taps and other knocks created with the instrument.

finally, we'll head over to the third and final ski the runs and Tremeloes there are two articulations here one is a simple bowed runs technique which you play normally on your keyboard it's a good alternative sound to the spiccato in the previous NKI if you want a

the slightly tighter sound then we have the timed tremolo articulation if you select this articulation and hold down a chord you'll hear that it will play the sequencer on the right you can adjust the velocity of the slider for each step as

well as switch between four sequences via the buttons above you can change the length of the sequence via the steps drop-down menu and the time value of the steps in the drop-down menu here something that makes this library indispensable to composers is that the entire string orchestra was recorded together over a single large keyboard range during the recording sessions the

the orchestration was carefully balanced to achieve this but on top of all that you can still use,the spot mics in the mixer tab to Zone in on single sections if you wish to turn a section spots up all the way and everything else down and you can play that section on its own completely isolated from the rest of the orchestra.
