Adventure Strings is the follow-up to the debut offering, Soaring Strings. Performed by the same number of players, recorded in the same room, seated in their traditional positions -- both share the same performance aesthetic. Strong, passionate and relentlessly energetic.
So why another string library with the same, familiar collection of short articulations? Well, it's how Musical Sampling produced them that makes it interesting.
Shorts are normally recorded in isolation -- perhaps one or two notes per bar during the recording process. This makes the editing process a snap and the end result is often satisfactory. The sane choice.
With Adventure Strings, Musical Sampling recorded repetition phrases; a quick succession of notes at a procured tempo. The samples of each note of that phrase were then edited and programmed to be playable, which resulted in a fetal position-incurring post-production process.

The end result is a collection of patches that now suit the context they were designed for because, well, they were recorded that way!
In addition to the shorts (spiccatos/staccatos/pizzicatos/marcatos), Adventure Strings includes trills, tremolos, sustains, keyboard-spanning Full Strings instruments and of course, the Adventure patches.
