Hans Zimmer the Godfather of orchestral sampling came over to Spitfire audio to produce this spectacular innovation in orchestral sampling, 344 players were sampled in Air Studios in London and put together in Hans Zimmer Strings. From thundering basslines to glass-like high strings this plugin is Symphonic Strings on steroids.
For Hans Zimmer Strings, Spitfire Audio has adopted his groundbreaking approach to large group sampling and taken it to another level.
They have assembled some of the greatest players in London to perform on this library, recorded at Air Studios, and it’s the combination of such vast numbers of top-tier session players performing together, as one, that led to results we couldn’t have dreamt of.
“When you gather large string forces it is like the thread count with Egyptian cotton sheets; the higher the count, the silkier the feel.
Hans Zimmer Strings offers an oceanic patina of strings and articulations. Where some techniques are often angular, here they suddenly take on a fresh beauty; try out the Col Legno Trattos, a totally unique sound.” – Christian Henson
“This really will make you feel like you can create something totally new and extraordinary sounding – for example, the first experience of hearing 60 exceptional cellists playing muted as softly as possible is so memorable! Being able to realize my own musical ideas with this unusual creative toolkit is extremely inspiring.” – Paul Thomson
