Symphonic Strings Volume 3 from Spitfire Audio is part of The British Modular Library, an ongoing project to provide composers with the ability to add fine detail and musical expression to their compositions. This selection features a sixty-piece string band, recorded and performed in such a way as to provide excellent detail. All the players are recorded in situ and mixed carefully with the correct perspective and placing so that they lock together with each and every BML module.

The library features fast run legato, longs super sul tasto, longs marcato attacks, brushed spiccatos, sul tasto and harmonics in multiple round robins, dynamic layers, with control over vibrato. The "progressive techniques" include 'divisi normale and con sordino' recorded together, basses playing both pizzicato and brushed spiccato for a warmer, more-rounded bottom end, and also 'super sul tasto'. Additionally, thirty players recorded so far up the neck that the note ceases to exist, just the sound of rosin on bow, coupled with the other thirty musicians playing con sord and close to "oblivion" on the neck, provides a never before heard, almost inaudibly quiet symphonic landscape.

The Ostinatum section of the instrument is not quite an arpeggiator, nor a sequencer, but a device that allows for building complex patterns dependent on what's being played. The samples are presented with seven microphone positions which can be mixed and blended together to fit a current application. A full version of KONTAKT 5 is required to utilize this sample library.
