EW Hollywood Strings is a virtual software instrument that provides a collection of 44.1 kHz 24-bit string instruments with unprecedented control over sound and performance, all supplied on a hard drive for ease of installation. Finger position is, for the first time, controllable by the user, so you can play as far up the strings as you want, and get a fuller more romantic Hollywood sound. Vibrato intensity and extensive dynamics are controllable by the user. Extensive multi-dynamic true legato has been sampled for all sections in three different categories: slurred, portamento, and bow change. The tool has five user-controllable mic positions, including main pickup, mid pickup, close pickup, surround pickup, and an alternate vintage circa 1945 RCA ribbon room pickup.
