Spitfire Audio has today introduced a new expansion in their excellent LABS instrument series. Scary Strings features a selection of haunting string evolutions. I highly recommend these free virtual instruments because they have an excellent range of unusual sounds.
These haunting string evolutions were the inspiration behind Spitfire’s Evolutions libraries, born out of the need for subtly shifting textures.
Performed by a small ensemble of string players, we give you three distinctive presets: Cool, which creates icy overtones; Sustain, for longer notes; and Stretched, for a disturbing, drawn-out effect that will make your hairs stand on end.
Scary Strings is available as a free download for the Spitfire Audio App. The plugin is also available for free.
