Detailed sound design patches
The second half of Stringscapes is an array of complex processed patches. We set our sound designers to work with the raw material from the performances, with a brief to create a flexible toolkit for contemporary scoring. They delivered a wide set of possible worlds, from disturbing horror textures to reversed effects and ethereal ambient atmospheres: Instant inspiration.
All recordings are available in their ‘raw’ form, as well as in a special mix by Benjamin Wallfisch. So you get the Hollywood sound straight out of the box, plus a wealth of options for shaping and perfecting your own personal sound.

Perfectly integrated Teldex sound
Stringscapes by Benjamin Wallfisch is also available as a bundle with its sister collection, Benjamin Wallfisch Strings.
What’s more, both collections were recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin—the same place we recorded the Berlin Series, the Metropolis Ark Series, Miroire, and many other collections. We used the same basic mic setup every time, so you know that all these collections work perfectly together in the same sonic space.
