Kinetic Strings Plus By Kirk Hunter Studios On Offer At APD

Audio Plugin Deals are offering Kinetic Strings Plus by Kirk Hunter Studios at a reduced price for a limited time, now available for only $99.00, (usually $149.00). The offer ends February 7th.

Kinetic Strings contains 16 violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos, and 4 basses. Included articulations are Spiccato, Marcato, Pizzicato, Detache, Col legno, and Bartok Pizzicato. And each articulation can be “tightened or broadened”.

With Kinetic, you get the entire string section in one instrument (Violins, Violas, Cellos and Basses). You get a separate timeline for each section. Each timeline contains 64 note or rest events and can be divided into up to 4 “regions”. And you can have each timeline play a different pattern, section or articulation when you hold down a single note or chord!

Choose from 30 fun-to-play presets in Kinetic Strings Original, or 40 new and different patterns in Kinetic Strings Plus. And if you really want to get wild, you can choose any of the presets for each section separately. That means you could have the violins playing the one preset, the violas play another, the cellos play yet another, and the basses play event another… ALL AT THE SAME TIME! And of course, any or all of these patterns can be edited.

Kinetic Strings Original – You can also load “perpetual motion” patterns that include very useful accents. These accents can be based on every 2, 3, 4 or 6 events. Additionally, you can set whether the accents are subtle, moderate or dynamic.

Recorded at the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica where A-list Los Angeles-based orchestras record and perform.
