Since joining the team of SCOREcastOnline a few months back, I have had the joy to work with some incredibly talented composers and developers.
With our technology team, we have begun a series of Solo String library reviews - with good reason, because quite a number of such libraries have materialized in the last months.
After a detailed look at Spitfire Solo Strings as well as LASS First Chair, I am pleased to announce the second review in this series. VSL Solo Strings is a heavyweight in the work of solo string libraries. The „oldest“ of the libraries reviewed, it has time and again proven to be a versatile tool for composers. The review tells you why and also gives you some nice audio examples.
On a related note, if you sometimes feel a bit daunted by the sheer power of the Vienna Instruments Pro sampler, SCOREcast also has an article for you that explains the interface and general concept.
