Orchestral Strings One - String ensemble
Orchestral Strings One was recorded utilizing the legendary acoustics in the famous Berliner Hall - home of the world class BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER. Our full string orchestra contains 14 violins, 10 Violas, 8 Cellos and 6 Double Basses.

The NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine offers you the best from both the sampling and modeling worlds. The Authentic Sound of Sampling combined with the Playability of Modeling makes for a string experience that you have to try to believe! No steep hardware requirements here. Orchestral Strings One takes up less than 200MB of disk space and doesn't overly tax your CPU. The NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine gives you absolute control over every aspect of each string - you can even design your own string! There are nearly 20 controls waiting for you to tweak! Some of you (you know who you are!) just HAVE to dial up the legato and velocity, fiddle with the dynamic response, and play with those timbre differences.

Unlike static samples, modeling technology really brings the Orchestral Strings One to life. And more importantly, Orchestral Strings One focuses on the continuous flow of melody, not on just a single note. For example, you can progressively transform a sustained note by first adding slow vibrato, then medium vibrato and finally fast vibrato. While doing this, you can also use the expression controller to change from crescendo to decrescendo. This sort of control is just about impossible to achieve with sampled strings.

Orchestral Strings One is very easy to use. You can play with all the parameters on the fly with a MIDI keyboard using key switches and controllers. A keyboard player can easily and freely play our Orchestral Strings One without any difficulty. It's perfect for a live performance!

Is anyone else not able to save or export it without it resetting to the default settings? I like the pizzicato sound but when I export the file or reload the project it's back to the default one.

I want to use it but my system is 64bit. Will it work anyway? I don't want to break anything

If your DAW has no onboard bridge, you can try this one: https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridge/

Bruh, I just started using them, you must suck entirely. No sound is perfect raw. You need to EQ, compress, and filter it. As well as separate and pan the stereo.

Garbage no explanation as to why the sound either fades out consistantly or sounds like a trachcan.

Ogni cosa sta bene nel posto giusto, anche questa per me è ottima nella sua sfera, E e poi una CPU cosi bassa nel contesto non credo sia facile trovarla.

I must be missing something. This one sounds way to simple to be orchestral strings. Maybe my 64 bit system and Jbridge doesn't work properly with this VSTi. It uses a LOT of CPU but produce very little in orchestral strings sound ways. :P - It actually sounds like an old style analog synthesizer if anything, but not multilayerd strings if that was the intention.
