In-Depth Overview of Native Instruments Action Strings for Kontakt
This is a brilliant hour-long in-depth overview of the new Native Instruments Action Strings sample library for Kontakt.
There are many, many, many sample libraries showcasing strings available nowadays, but there are a few things that really set the newly released Native Instruments Action Strings for Kontakt. There have been a lot of mixed reviews and surrounding this style of sample library that NI seems to be focused on right now, but much of it is actually misunderstanding how the programming tools work and what they are actually capable of. There are many pre-made articulation and phrase presets for each instrument made easily accessible via the main interface windows. But you can also dig in a little deeper and begin tweaking these presets, or making your own new ones to generate truly unique and original sequences, progressions and arrangements.
The Native Instruments Action Strings sample library is intended to be used for cinematic and emotionally intense projects. And having the unique ability to quickly produce professional sounding recordings of string ensembles has helped many artists and producers around the world enter into the world of production music. It also comes with a few essential effects, like reverb, expression and other tools to help you build a more realistic and believable delivery of your arrangements.
So for those of you who already have the Native Instruments Action Strings library, or Komplete, we hope this video has helped to shed some light on things and give you a reason to jump into it. And for those who may be on the fence with this purchase, it certainly seems like a great library to have, especially if you are not classically trained but still wish to include dynamic and powerful strings in your projects. It can obviously deliver some really great sounds in very little time!
