Macabre Solo Strings aren't the usual sampled Solo Strings. They were crafted with one particular sound in our minds, which they deliver better than any other Solo String library out there. Macabre excels at slow emotional Solo String lines and on top of that you don't even need tons of programming to get stunning results with them. Just sit down and play. The samples themselves contain a huge amount of natural expressiveness, which makes it easier than ever to write realistic sounding Solo String lines.
"Macabre Solo Strings is a joy to work with. It’s melodic, dark, expressive and extremely easy to use. It’s the first multi-instrument solo string library I’ve used where I liked it the out of the box as is, making it great for beginners that want a great sound as well as those that don’t want to spend a lot of time on mixing." - SoundBytesMag
"Macabre Solo Strings is a good library with a fairly realistic sound and great graphic interface with minimal room to get lost tweaking the sound." - TheAudioSpotlight
"I’ve never had a string library that felt as easy to play as Macabre Solo Strings. No keyswitch programming, no extensive “button-workout”. All you have to do is play, and that’s very inspiring." - filmandgamecomposers.com (Rating: 9.6/10)
"I could easily float around the notes of my controller. The notes melted together in such a way, it sounded like a string instrument playing, rather than a sample being played on a keyboard." - AskAudio
"Really having a lot of fun with some Strezov sounds these days. Encourage lots of fun ways to get you out of my comfort zones. The Macabre Strings are really characterful, as if you can sense the players. Not at all generic in any way." - Imogen Heap
