Melodic Legato

Captured in musical context, the Melodic Legato mode produces lifelike and musical transitions between notes while incorporating natural vibrato. With its long transition samples, Melodic Legato is especially useful when playing themes, slow phrases, and passages.

Pattern Legato

Optimized for ostinato patterns, Pattern Legato eliminates the machine gun effect of other sample libraries by using a round-robin approach, with three samples for every transition. Varying the sound of repeating notes delivers natural, organic results.

Rapid Legato

Developed for playing fast runs with the large string sections of Berlin Symphonic Strings, Rapid Legato yields new levels of realism that easily surpass results from other libraries. Even the fastest melodies are now 100% playable and convincing.
