What is the difference between Originals Intimate Strings and Originals Cinematic Frozen Strings?

Intimate Strings features 25 players, whereas Cinematic Frozen Strings features just 8 players (2,2,0,2,2 - no violas), placed antiphonally (split across the room). The extended techniques featured in Cinematic Frozen Strings are much more experimental, and are played at the quietest of levels, creating a distinctly raw, icy tone. The ‘Super Close’ signal in this library, created by recording the instruments with DPA clip-on mics placed on the bridge, gives you even more detail and definition, so you can really hear each individual instrument.

Intimate Strings techniques (9): Longs, Longs CS , Longs ½ Section, Flautando, Harmonics, Short, Short CS, Pizzicato, Short Col Legno  

Signals: Close, Tree, Vintage

What is the difference between Originals Cinematic Frozen Strings and the strings section in Albion Tundra?

The techniques in Cinematic Frozen Strings have been inspired by the string techniques used in Albion Tundra, this time featuring an eight-piece string section, whereas Albion Tundra offers a 56-piece section. This brand new set of recordings is designed to complement Albion Tundra, but can also be used on its own or with a range of other Spitfire libraries — blending particularly well with Albion NEO, LCO Textures and Contemporary Drama Toolkit.
