Since joining the team of SCOREcastOnline a few months back, I have had the joy to work with some incredibly talented composers and developers.
With our technology team, we have begun a series of Solo String library reviews - with good reason, because quite a number of such libraries have materialized in the last months.
After a detailed look at Spitfire Solo Strings as well as LASS First Chair, I am pleased to announce the second review in this series. VSL Solo Strings is a heavyweight in the work of solo string libraries. The „oldest“ of the libraries reviewed, it has time and again proven to be a versatile tool for composers. The review tells you why and also gives you some nice audio examples.
On a related note, if you sometimes feel a bit daunted by the sheer power of the Vienna Instruments Pro sampler, SCOREcast also has an article for you that explains the interface and general concept.
VSL product manager Paul Steinbauer was so kind to put it up there for anyones benefit. I’m at work on a new update to the tutorial, so there’s a lot to come.
I will continue to host the tutorial on my site, too and provide regular updates both here and on the VSL site.
And this is just the start! There is tons of new stuff in the pipeline, so stay stuned.
