Ben Osterhouse has released Pattern Strings, ostinato string patterns maker for Kontakt


Indy developer Ben Osterhouse has released Pattern Strings, a Kontakt a library for creating ostinato string patterns.

“It can achieve a wide range of moods, from lightly pulsating string beds to pounding, energetic textures. 19 rhythms have been recorded at two dynamic layers on violin, viola, cello, and bass, and each rhythm was recorded as a 4 bar loop.

The interface allows you to seamlessly piece together sections of these loops in order to create endlessly customizable ostinato string patterns. Because the samples are so long, the interface was designed with a dynamic loading system which only loads whichever samples are needed for the current pattern and chosen instrumentation.

This interface is great for experimenting and learning how strings can blend together.”


The library sells for £41.25 for a limited time (reg £55)
