Sunset Strings is unlike any strings library you've heard or played before.

Yes.  Really.

Using top L.A. session players at the renowned "Studio A" at United Recording in Hollywood, we believe Sunset Strings just has "that" sound.

Not just another strings library

Overview

Sunset Strings allows you to seamlessly blend between an extensive selection of standard and extended articulations to create organic, evolving textures - adding life and musicality to your productions. This library breathes! Check out the video to see what we mean.

What's the big deal?

UNIQUE Features

Our unique 2-Layer approach gives you control to "bring in the emotion" by crossfading between articulations, as well as giving you a range of attacks and releases including slow bends, quick slides, natural crescendos, decrescendos, and more. Seriously, it's unlike any strings library you've played before.

Lush YET Defined

The Ensemble

Articulations were recorded as an ensemble (5 violins, 3 violas, 3 celli), with Basses (3) recorded separately to offer greater control.
Some articulations such as the "repetitions" were recorded as soloists in their seating position within the ensemble, achieving a gorgeously detailed natural stereo image.
