Session Strings Pro is the new gold standard for contemporary studio strings. Take control of an 11-piece ensemble, recorded with the utmost precision in four different settings for maximum flexibility and realism. With its immaculate, intimate quality, unique musical workflow and a vivid, modern edge, Session Strings Pro is the premium choice for pop, RnB and much more.
Taking the intuitive approach of Session Strings to completely new heights of quality and detail, Session Strings Pro is 20 times bigger, with refined workflows, separate instrument groups, a choice of instrument placements, 29 articulations and expressive, precise control.
Session Strings Pro is far more than just a string library. Creating natural, expressive string tracks in the highest possible quality has never been more immediate, or more rewarding.
The sound of Session Strings Pro is close, detailed and intimate — an essential alternative to an orchestral strings library. Meticulously sampled and designed to behave well in the mix, each of the four ensembles consists of five instrument groups: full ensemble, four violins, three violas, two cellos and two basses. Play full ensembles, mapped across the keyboard, or individual instrument groups.
Multiple velocity layers and provide a wide expressive range. With smooth looping, beautifully fluid transitions and up to four round robin samples per note, Session Strings Pro delivers a strikingly natural sound. What’s more, an additional set of presets provides the glamorous sound of vintage soul and disco.
The defining quality of this instrument is musical flow. Designed by musicians for musicians, Session Strings Pro provides tailored workflows for performance and production, supporting the creative process, rather than getting in the way. You can play chords and monophonic lines at the same time, and all 29 articulations are available in a single interface. And for instant rhythm, the Animator transforms the chords you play into lively rhythmical phrases.
Session Strings Pro provides precise and detailed control, right down to the amount of bow noise. Choose between classic or pop instrument placements. Experiment with close and wide microphone positions, or combine two ensembles for a full, widescreen sound.
All ensembles are provided as two different preset types: Performance, for playing with two hands on the keyboard, and Production, for assigning key switches.
The Animator in Session Strings Pro is also completely customizable. Create your own patterns with a choice of articulations, note lengths, and time signatures.

"SSPro is actually more versatile than its suggested ‘pop’ applications, and is quite capable of handling baroque, classical and period styles.
Its simple operation makes for a fun sit-down-and-jam experience, but it can also sound quite impressive when sequencing a complex arrangement."
