Hollywood Strings Gold Edition from East West is a virtual instrument featuring a huge collection of beautifully recorded string instruments, while simultaneously providing extensive control over the sound and performance. Recording for Hollywood Strings took place at EastWest Studio 1, the same studio where many Hollywood soundtracks and television themes were recorded with a live orchestra.

Heading this project were co-producers Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergerse, and sound engineer Shawn Murphy, who has recorded and mixed the scores for more than 300 feature films. The exceptional sounds of the virtual strings are the result of having a top sound engineer, a beautiful-sounding recording studio, an incredible selection of microphones, the best analog and digital recording equipment, and top Hollywood string players.

The library provides a large scoring-stage sound along with a more intimate scoring-stage sound. Hollywood Strings has many new features including the finger position controllable by the user, so you can play as far up the strings as you want and get a fuller, more romantic Hollywood sound. Vibrato intensity and extensive dynamics are controllable by the user.

Extensive multi-dynamic true legato has been sampled for all sections in 2 different categories – slurred and portamento, resulting in unsurpassed legato performance. The library features a single microphone position (mid-tree).
