September ’19 – #9: Short Strings

TFO #9: “Short Strings” offers you 5 octaves of ensemble string staccatos, taken from the Symphobia 1 recordings. The instrument covers violins, violas, cellos and double basses and has full round-robin functionality in 1 dynamic “forte” layer. The on-screen Lowpass filter is mapped to velocity and allows you to tweak the amount of dynamic filtering for the instrument.

The Free Orchestra does not come with a Kontakt Player license and therefore requires the full version of Kontakt. All Free Orchestra patches have been formatted for Kontakt 5.6.8.

Open sample pool

Short Strings comes with an open 44.1 kHz/24 bit sample pool. This means that you can directly access the wave files and use them on any platform that can handle wave files. Example are Ableton, Cubase, Pro Tools, FL Studio, HALion, Falcon – or your vintage hardware or Eurorack sampler.


  • Full version of Kontakt required.

License conditions

  • Please note that while you are more than welcome to use The Free Orchestra in commercial projects, it is not allowed to redistribute or resell these sounds without prior, written permission of ProjectSAM!
