The idea is that you play the pitch with the blue notes and then switch between phrases by triggering the red notes. That matched with the staccato patch and the phrases would really have made it an even stronger cinematic string toolkit. Hats off for this one, my dear Native Instruments. As Kontakt users may be familiar with, you see some notes shown in different colors representing which ones have sounds assigned to them. For variation, you can switch between phrases as you play at any point in the bar with your left hand. Others ignore them completely, preferring to compose their own phrases.

The probem with many sampled string libraries is that as good as they sound, playing a keyboard makes it very difficult to replicate the kinds of musical phrases that a real string section would play. Every theme can be quickly previewed with a single click on the theme name.
The phrases range from basic rhythmic patterns to intricate melodies, each recorded live in every key, and in two dynamic levels. Blend between the dynamic levels via the mod wheel, switch the harmonic patterns to minor or major via velocity, or change the meter to fit your production. As all phrases are recorded in two different volumes you can build, or should we say, control dynamics with the mod-wheel. This is especially important if you use more complex rhythms combined from few rhythmical elements allowing you to preserve the flow of the whole musical passage.
