To create the greatest film scores in the world, you need to think outside the box. We teamed up with Hans Zimmer, the Godfather of orchestral sampling (Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, Interstellar), to produce this spectacular innovation; 344 players performing an unconventional range of playing techniques in The Hall at London's world-famous AIR Studios. With up to 26 mic positions, only technology allows you to play an ensemble this big — from thundering basslines to glass-like high strings, this is symphonic strings maximised.
With the help of design and user experience agency UsTwo (Monument Valley, DICE), Hans Zimmer Strings is presented in our award-winning dedicated plugin — developed primarily for composers, by composers. Take the dynamic of your scores to levels you’ve never imagined, with our most ambitious library yet.
In collaboration with Hans, we adopted his groundbreaking approach to large group sampling and took it to another level to create a truly epic, supercharged string sound. We handpicked a gargantuan ensemble of London's finest session players in The Hall at AIR Studios to perform a vast range of playing techniques, including Tremolo Harmonic Waves, Super Sul Pont and newly added Marcato Shorts — with mindblowing results. With this ambitious and exciting string library, you are bound to unlock areas of creativity you didn’t imagine were possible.
