Spitfire Audio Evo Grid 01 Strings KONTAKT
An extraordinary collection of long evolving chamber strings orchestrated by ben foskett and recorded dry at air-edel studios providing you with a totally unique palette of inspiration with an ingenious grid layout that allows all but an infinite number of evo configurations. The true golden goose here though is the gift to composers that is the ability to play ultra minimal passages whilst still holding your listeners spellbound.

Performed by some of the most progressive avant garde string players in London today and recorded dry at the amazing Air-Edel studios via the finest vintage mics, neve pre-amps and vintage Cadac desk. Spitfire went about recording 48 different and very long Evos. Not just tense, mysterious and frightening Evos as with Scary Strings. But also intensely beautiful, tender and moving. Recorded across 12 intervals, and arranged on a 12 x 48 grid the true genius of this library lies in its interface...

With a GUI Inspired by the EMS VCS3 you can instantly select (or peg) what evo sits on each of the 12 key ranges. This gives you literally an almost infinite number of personalised configurations. Toggle your pegs around, or hit "Randomise", replay the MIDI and no cue will ever sound the same twice! The pièce de résistance here though is the ability to play ultra minimal music whilst holding your audience captive with the ever changing kaleidoscope of progressive string techniques.
Whilst playing the material orchestrated by Ben Foskett, we couldn't stop ourselves from creating an additional 5 grids of awesome warped, saturated and totally transformed versions of each and every Evo.

They are one of the brightest tuned percussion instruments and similar to a piccolo, will cut through even the biggest orchestral dirges.
