String ensemble staccatos are a composer’s best friend. Whether you need to accentuate dramatic rhythms in an action cue, create tension with a repeating ostinato line, build an epic swashbuckling main melody, or weave ominous arpeggiating textures, staccato strings are de facto standard.
Furia is a library tailor-made to deliver that very sound, and ONLY that sound. It is simple and streamlined, with no extraneous features or samples. As soon as you load it up and begin playing, you’ll see the appeal of this elegant design. With no complex UI or exhaustive patch lists, you instead have an instant, highly-versatile staccato sound out-of-the-box.
Use Furia on its own with either (or both) of two included mic positions and a handy FX rack, or layer it with other orchestral sounds like our Bravura Scoring Brass for even more ‘oomph’. Either way, we know you’ll find it a fantastic and very practical tool for your template!
- Ensemble Multiplier
FSS was recorded with a 22-piece string ensemble. With this control, you can multiply the size of the ensemble up to 8x for an even more epic sound!
- Timing Controls
The Ensemble Timing knob controls the amount of random timing variation in the ensemble multiplier, while Sample Offset adjusts the sample playback to be more aggressive (at the cost of some pre-bow noise).
- Mic Mixer
Here you can load or unload either of the two included mic positions, plus change or automate their volume & stereo width.
- Envelope Shaping
Dial down the decay and sustain for a very tight and aggressive staccato sound, or turn them up with release to let each note ring out.
