‘Real Strings Vol 6: Broken Chords’ from Organic Loops is a library of violins performing the distinctive texture of rolling arpeggios. These loops will give character and movement to all styles of music. Loops from the Real Strings series have been featured on tracks by many artists, including Skrillex and Rudimental.
There are 94 chord patterns, recorded across four bars, at 100 and 120 BPM. The loops cover major, minor and open 5th chords, and unusual patterns like augmented, diminished and sus chords. The pack also includes sustained notes with rising and falling dynamics.
The pack really comes to life for producers who own Kontakt5 as they are treated to a fully scripted performance instrument that features a customisable preset of up to eight broken (arpeggiated) chord patterns, a two octave spread of single notes to complement the arpeggios and a reverb module to add air to the sounds and loops.
‘Real Strings Vol 6: Broken Chords’ features clever key switching, allowing producers to change between the eight loaded sequences on the fly with the ability to also change the root key of each loop. Tempo changes are not a problem as the instrument will use Kontakt5’s ability to follow your DAW’s tempo.
These authentic string samples were recorded in Pete’s studio where he regularly records real strings for major labels and media companies.
Expect to find over 600 MB of 24-Bit loops recorded at 100 and 120 BPM. All loops are supplied as five bar files, to include the tail. The Kontakt5 instrument is also included in this download, as are the scores in MIDI, PDF and Sibelus format for those who want to dig even deeper.
In detail, expect to find 980 MB of content including 214 Arpeggiated Loops, one Kontakt5 Scripted Instrument Preset and 214 REX2 Files.
