Sacconi Strings - Quartet from Spitfire Audio is an original and inspiring set of purpose-built tools for writing for string quartets performed by the Sacconi String Quartet, an award-winning and highly sought-after British group and recorded at Wigmore Hall, arguably the best chamber acoustic in the world. Recorded over the course of four years, Spitfire engineers combined modern techniques and exploratory approaches to vibrato alongside stunning traditional articulations to provide a very different approach to sampling in the digital sphere.

The quartet library features individual instruments that can be utilized in two modes, the traditional "key-switching" method that changes articulations via inaudible notes being hit on your controller. Or "performance patches", which is a scripted automatic tool that analyses the way you're playing and interprets the style of performance you need. The performance patches can select from Spiccatos, various longs, and a selection of True Legato transitions, for maximum expressiveness. Quartet also contains a useful 'baked' ensembles section that allows you to sketch your quartet composition with both hands before splitting off into the separate parts.

The software utilizes a full version of Kontakt 5 (not included), and the library contains 6 different microphone perspectives, including the main stereo position that gives you the classic sound of the hall. Other positions include two close mics, a decca tree, outriggers, and ambients. 15 different articulations are included with the library from tight spiccatos to longs with complete vibrato control and a whole host of others in between.

Note: Requires full version of KONTAKT 5

  • The Overview Panel
    • Gives you a quick and easy way to access, view, and load the different articulations, mic mixes, and essential controller functions, which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.
  • General Controls Panel
    • A deeper, but still simple, UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. Control how many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. Set how you would like memory to be organized alongside the pitch options and how velocity works.
  • The Ostinatum
    • Quite simply a little inspiration machine. Not quite an arpeggiator, not quite a sequencer. This intuitive device allows you to build up complex patterns that react to your playing to achieve wild systems results tantalizing Zimmeresque tension beds or cheeky multi-tonguing effects.
