Fire Strings by Alliance Divergent Audio Group Review
Alliance Divergent Audio Group teamed up with Paris Sampling to produce Fire Strings. This Kontakt library is a hybrid tension instrument.
Alliance Divergent Audio Group did send a review copy with no strings attached.
You download the library, move it to your preferred Kontakt library location. In the Full Version of Kontakt (the free player version of Kontakt is not supported) you need to do a re-batch save, and you are ready to use the instrument. You may need to move the snapshots to the usual Kontakt location to be able to use them.
Alliance Divergent Audio Group captured tonal, aleatoric and rhythmic content performed by electric violin and guitar. To add the unique vibe it eas recorded through analog gear (Neve, API, Universal Audio, Manley, etc.) and mangled by Olajide Paris in the box with some unique sound design tools.
There are plenty of snapshots (123) included to guide you through the exciting and vibrant possibilities of this library.
You can then dive deeper into three categories of sounds. With the first Tonal section, you can use the captured electric violin sustains and textures and find sustains and tremolos as well as unsettling spectral scrubs, harmonics, trills, wild microtonal bends, and vibrato.
In the third section, you find risers with long, anxiety erection glissandos. Captured is a variety of bowing and fingering techniques – this is to develop your climaxes.
In the last section, you have access to regular content. Several grooves that work as the starting point for a track.
User interface & Usability
With Fire Strings an excellent UI and is a significant step forward since the last release by Paris Sampling. Glyn Lloyd has done an excellent job in designing the user interface. You combine two sound sources and rhythmically and blend each sound. It is a UI that makes it easier to produce sounds and allows you to dive into sincerely with many included effects.
The interface allows you to very flexible perform sound design to create sonic results that last.
Rating: Four out of five stars
Fire Strings is an excellent collection of traditional and extended Tonal, Riser, and Rhythmic, tonal instruments.
