Cory’s Library Spotlight – Venice Modern Strings

Venice Modern Strings is a sampled string orchestra for Kontakt 5 which features 8 first violins6 second violins5 violas5 cellos and 3 doublebasses.

The library features three kinds of legato: portamentofingered legato and bow change legato. These can be triggered either by velocity, by MIDI CC or by Pitchwheel. Moreover there’s a control for the amount of vibrato.

There’s a polyphonic legato engine, mainly derived by Dominus, Staccato and Staccatissimo articulations, Short and Long Arcs and a small selection of sustain articulations. Every articulation has a set of advanced controls: you can change the parameters to have a more agile legato, dynamically stretch the Arcs to adapt them into your piece or control the velocity curve for articulations like Pizzicato, Staccato and Staccatissimo.

All the long articulations may be modulated by the morph engine: this allows to create custom articulations by dynamically modulating two different string techniques, in many different ways.

The library also includes single articulation patchesensembles and low memory footprint patches.
