Berlin Strings | Special Bows II - Notes

With Berlin Strings, our comprehensive flagship string library firmly establishing the Teldex sound in the world of orchestral strings, we are proud to bring the BST line-up to the next level.

Berlin Strings | Special Bows II introduces much sought-after special bowing techniques for Celli and Basses. Included is a large complement of Sul Ponticello, Sul Tasto and Flageolet articulations, as well as Col Legno for all sections.
Following the idea of our symphonic sampling project to do things right and in detail, we decided to really delve deep into those special bows and provide them as standalone collections instead of just including some basic patches in the main collections. All articulations have been recorded with the same depth and scope as Berlin Strings. With Sul Tasto and Sul Ponticello legato, you can play melodic lines with the same sonic depth as the main collection. RRs on shorts patches counter the dreaded machine gun effect even when playing Flageolet.
