We have cherry picked the most essential and popular articulations from this blue chip library to make Sable available in an “ensembles format” for the first time. Sable for both hands! Each articulation has been painstakingly re-mixed to get the best balance of sections with no audible transitions between them. At last we can not only work these into our arrangements and orchestrations but actually compose with them from the get go too.

If you've enjoyed working with the very detailed and advanced Sable, but wish for a more instant compositional tool, then this is a must-have.

Or if you're a composer who wishes to liven his or her arrangements with a truly unique and very beautiful library without taking the full multi modular plunge then this is an excellent and very fairly priced introduction.


BML Sable is a totally unique and very special string series that concentrates on extreme detail, beauty and nuance. Made up from a small band (4,3,3,3) of the finest players London has to offer and recorded at the world renowned Air Studios. Sable is part of the British Modular Range an ultra-deep-sampled orchestral range that fits together like a jigsaw, or a modular synth, but made of orchestras!


Ensembles is made up of the “greatest hits” of the first four volumes. From simple longs, longs muted, staccatos and spiccatos, to the beguiling flautando, sul tasto and harmonics. For users unfamiliar with the Sable range this is the opportunity to taste the riches of it whilst having the non fussy ease-of-use of an ensemble range. With the ensemble playing 15 different articulations all with full Sable spec vibrato, dynamic and round robin control and four microphone positions to load in and mix between.


The Overview Panel

Gives you a quick and easy way to access, view and load the different articulations, mic mixes and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.

General Controls Panel

A deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. How would you like memory to be organised alongside pitch options and how velocity works.

The Ostinatum

Quite simply a little inspiration machine. Not quite an arpegiattor, not quite a sequencer. This intuitive device allows you to build up complex patterns that react to your playing to achieve wild systems results tantalising Zimmeresque tension beds or cheeky multi-tonguing effects!
