Thoughts

Liikkuva Scandi String Textures offers a beautiful set of string samples across a lovely and unique range of articulations aimed at tracks and underscore in the Scandi/Nordic genre. This is a fantastic set of well-recorded samples that are immediately playable out of the box. One of the things I really like about this library is the dual-ensemble approach – offering separate high and low string ensemble patches. This offers composers more control over the sound than traditional ensemble patches without breaking each instrument into its own dedicated folder. The small string orchestra was recorded without violas so that the sound is airy and feels more silky. This automatically has the effect of scooping out the mid-range to add addition boom to the bottom while giving the top more air and sheen. Within the library you will find a few more traditional sounding articulations (i.e., Sul Tasto, Sul Pont), but the real focus here is on articulations that elicit a more Scandi/Nordic vibe. To this end, there is a good number of articulations you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Liikkuva Scandi String Textures is a beautiful addition to any composer’s toolkit who finds themselves wanting to create underscore and tracks in the style of shows like Broadchurch or artists such as Olafur Arnalds or Nils Frahm.
