    Written and created by Pianobook Artist - Dan Keen

    Soft String Textures is the ultimate embodiment of the original Soft String Spurs concept. Featuring three of Dan's all-time favourite string players, this collaboration captures bespoke performances and articulations that have been workshopped to deliver stunning realism and emotive depth to your music.

    Formed of solo violin, viola and cello, Soft String Textures leans heavily on the musicality of three sublime players - Ellie Consta, Georgie Davis and Meera Raja. Recorded in Studio B at Spitfire Audio HQ, this library is intimate and immediate. Captured at 96kHz by an 8-mic array, each player was recorded individually for fine control. Alongside 5 core articulations, Soft String Textures also features 10 warps to add a hybrid element to your scores.
