Version: Kontakt 5.8.1 / WAV / V1
Modern Horror Strings
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Stringache is a modern horror library of mangled string noises. We’ve used close microphone techniques to record a huge deal of violin stabs and screeches, pizzicatos, cello staccatos, double bass jetè, crescendos, strident string gestures, bowed noises: all of them have been heavily processed and transformed in unsettling, hair-raising cinematic horror effects.
Stringache is for the contemporary composer of horror cinematic music: whenever you need a subtle violin effect to create tension, a rising cluster effect to grab the audience’s attention or a screaming, ear piercing string screech stab, Stringache will be your weapon.

Brilliant coverage for horror-scoring. Controls take a little getting used to (had to manually adjust a number of the releases on certain patches where others came as standard) but once you get the hang of it, this little baby is ideal for scaring the absolute pants off your audience.
Really like it! Very usable
Used a lot in my trailer production! Great quality!
A unique sounding library with one flaw
A fantastic library for sure with many useful sounds. As close as I can get to purchasing and punishing my own cello ;)
Unfortunately none of the loops are tempo-synced to Kontakt, something the developer said was intentional because of resulting artifacts and suggested using the wav files instead.
It took some work but I was able to sync them into Kontakt myself and they sound just fine with time machine pro!
