Visuals and Sound

Like many FrozenPlain libraries, Arctic Strings features a strong link between visuals and sounds. Strings can have an incredibly emotive sound that swells and flows. I began to draw a link between this and the real life spectacle of the northern lights . I imagined the strings swell and move in time to the aurora, this idea is what I have endeavoured to represent with the interface! The samples are wide and lush stereo recordings from a medium sized string ensemble in a church. This library excels at strings for ambience and atmosphere. It it not a deep sampled and technical concert hall type library. Be sure to check out the video demos at the bottom of this page to really get a feel of the sound and the unique GUI.

Strings with character

I love these strings, they have a really cool lofi/ambient sound, and the reverb is cool :) Not a conventional string library but they work great for ambient string textures. Icy!

It's cold outside

Wow, these strings sound so damn cold but also very unique and beautiful. I can really see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
