Orchestral Tools Berlin Strings 2.5 KONTAKT ALL MICS SEPARATED REPACK
ADAPTIVE LEGATO ENGINE
Berlin Strings features an innovative new legato system which analyzes your performance to choose between four different types of legato:
Slurred expressive legato
Agile, fast legato (scripted)
Fast runs legato
With velocity you have control over different captured bow stroke intensities (soft attack, immediate attack, accented attack). With the sustain pedal you can add a soft decay to end a phrase. These release samples have been specifically recorded. Additionally, the faster you play the more blurred the intonation will turn out - like in a real string performance. These blurred intonation effects will be created by specifically sampled articulations. Via a CC of your choice you can switch between different vibrato expressions.
SECTIONS AND THEIR SIZES
For Berlin Strings we decided to choose smaller section sizes to keep the definition and vibrato details in the sampled patches. Several crossfading techniques (dynamic layers, legatos fade scripts, vibrato fading) or playing more than one voice leads to a bigger and pad-like undefined string sound. With smaller sections we´re trying to take this effect into calculation to end up with a detailed, expressive orchestral string section. Berlin Strings includes the following sections:
1st Violins (8 players)
2nd Violins (6 players)
Violas (5 players)
Celli (5 players)
Basses (4 players)
BOW NOISE & BLURRED ARTICS
Bow Noise adds natural cc-controllable bow noise for additional expressiveness. With the new Blurred Articulations, we recorded special untuned and blurred articulations, which you can blend as a sonic color to change the impression of the intonation in a phrase.
Berlin Strings offers playable runs patches, as well as pre-recorded octave runs, which adapt automatically to your host tempo.

TIP: Don't know what mics to download to protect your ratio?
1st, search for a review in YT.
2nd, allow me to suggest:
- TREE as the main mic position, used at most professional orchestral recordings as the main sound.
- CLOSE as the mic that gives clarity in vibrato and spiccato but alone is harsh and bodyless.
- AB as the mic that gives better stereo image in each section and more ambiance than TREE.
