This Vienna Instruments Collection is the sequel to Chamber Strings I, offering all-new articulations and sonic subtleties for the small string ensembles. Chamber Strings II contains many of the playing techniques that the first Collection includes, but played "con sordino" (with mutes). They lend themselves well to soft, intimate arrangements, and provide nuanced variations to your orchestral pallet. The muted chamber ensembles are a refined addition to your treasure chest of string varieties from Vienna!

The Chamber Strings II collection offers various facets of short and sustained notes, crescendos and diminuendos, but also includes Vienna’s unique Interval Performances, such as legato, portamento, and trill performances. All of the recorded samples were performed by an accomplished ensemble of string players who have been lending their talents and their international experience to the Vienna Symphonic Library for years. This collection reflects their mastery over their instruments, bringing the art of chamber music alive in your personal studio.

The Chamber Strings II Full Library contains 16.5 GB of uncompressed sample data in 44.1kHz/24-bit. Due to an innovative optimization process, the Vienna Instruments engine decompresses the samples in real-time, so that they take up only 11 GB of space on your hard disk.
