Performance Samples’ Vista Strings

Vista is a legato strings library featuring a larger-than-life, romantic chamber sound, four dynamics (from a true PP all the way up to an intense FFF), slurred legato, same-note bow-change repetition samples, multiple attack types, and more.

Just like Con Moto, the sustains, legato, and other assets were recorded “in motion.” The sustains specifically use an “active-bow” approach (employed on Con Moto and others) which offers continuously re-expressed vibrato & emotion, via performance & editing processes. 

Vista features 5 violins, 4 violas, 3 cellos, and 3 basses. There are some bonuses, one of which is a basic full strings patch (created from the individual sections), useful for sketching and pads.

Also included is an overlay patch featuring 3 violins playing sustains and legato with heavy vibrato at FFF, useful for layering on the main 5 violins patch for more legato gel and detail. Lastly, there’s a harp, with notes recorded in repetition so that it can do repeated notes fluently.
