I bought the disco strings and Phoenix brass for EXS24 and I guess I can manually export/import them into my new Yamaha Modx. But it would be much simpler if I could buy the sounds with some kind of discount. Is that possible ?

Hi ! Thank you so much for this.This is definitely the sound i was looking for. I just had a couple questions for the kontakt version. I’ve tried without success to reproduce the presets that the other versions have ; A01 : Disco Strings ( with falls ), A02 : Attack Strings, A03 : Super Strings, A04 : Falls Strings, A05 : Tremolo Strings, A06 : Arco Strings, A07 : Slow Strings, A08 : Disco Strings ( w/o falls )

I would LOVE to be able to add tremolos and falls to my strings for certain projects i’m working on ! I read all the comments on here and went on the FAQ and even tho it is explained in certain of the comments, I can’t seem to obtain any results on the DAW that i’m using. ( I’m using FL studio). Is it possible to recreate these presets on kontakt and be able to use them on a DAW and if so, how could I achieve it ? Thanks so much for your help 🙂 !!

You Need the esx24 sampler from logic or mainstage.
There go to the edit Button .
Here you can export the esx24 DiscoStrings over the iCloud in the folder of the iOS App „AudioLayer „.
AudioLayer can direct open most esx24 patches without Problem.
Best regards, Chris

Hi I just bought the sample Library for Kontakt and the strings sound amazing,

But since I don’t use Kontakt that often, I don’t know how to activate different “sample” sets.
For example my strings sound very normal, but I want them to have that “fall” effect for which I bought them. But the Kontakt Player has just so many options that I don’t know where to change that haha.

Kind regards Jason

Just bought this sound-set for Kronos 2 88. Very nice little String set indeed! Others were right about this, these sounds are very playable and sample quality is very nice. You can make very nice Combis from these sounds, no doubt it. Well done! Ps. more sounds for the Kronos would be nice!

hi,
2 questions –
Does the Kontakt option work on both Windows 10 and Mac Sierra version of Kontakt 5?

separately, if I wanted to use this on Mainstage 3.3, I have both ESX24 and Kontakt to choose from. Which would you recommend is the preferred option and why?
(CPU load, features / ease of use etc)

Hi,
I bought the ESX24 version . I have put the files/folders into the places as per the PDF, I have rebooted MS3.3 but I cannot see the Disco Strings anywhere in the instrument selector?
Can you please provide instructions?
I dont have Logic on my Mac, just Mainstage 3.3

After listening to the great sounding demos, I purchased the EXS versions of CP70 and Disco Strings. CP is working flawlessly, but when loading the strings i get the message ‘Audio file “VI-14_stac_mf1_G#3.wav” not found!’

Somewhat strange, because they share the same installation procedure and the audio files are stored in the EXS Factory samples folder.

I am using Logic Pro X 10.2.4.

Am I doing something wrong here?

Regards, Martin

Congratulations, Stephane!

These are the most natural sounding strings I’ve ever played on the Motif series (in my case now a MOXF). This library is perfect for the purpose it was made for, but the usefulness goes far beyond that. For example I can think of using these fantastic strings for musical scoring as well. There’s much power and intelligence behind the concept and programming of this set. Thanks a lot!

Can’t wait to listen to your forthcoming Hohner Clavinet D6 library! Hope it will be released soon!

DANG!!! When I saw the lib I was like “yeah yeah yeah…It’ll sure work….NOT…” but then I listened to the demo, which , in all honesty , didn’t give me that much info (If you want to really impress ppl make one with great audio!) but I still thought that it may be worth the small price…and YEEEAH!!!! IT SO WAS!
I am very impressed! The first strings that can play legato, hard attack and also have nice falls in the same pgm!!
Very playable.
I bought the Kontakt version and the only thing I’d love to have is the ability to bend up a semitone and maybe a whole tone. To some extent it can be done with pitchbend (which is set at +-3 and I can’t find where to change it?!?!?!) but it’d be so preferable to be able to maybe keyswitch in the bend. Only that thing. Apart from that I am very very very surprised!
I just had to replace some brass in a jingle with discostrings and thought it’d be a nightmare but it was slammin!
Amazing!

Hey Keyboard Waves,

I recently purchased disco strings… and i’m impressed w/ how well they sit in a proper disco track and the overall playability… esp. the attack on faster lines where u need clarity and a sort of chunkiness…

I wanted 2 let u guys know i’ve made a proper Kontakt library for this nki and wondered if u guys might be interested in it…
hit me up if so… and keep making those superb libraries…
cheers!

Hi,

how can the 3 nsmp files be modulated on a Nord Electro as, unlike the Nord Stage Stage, it does not have a mod wheel.

Is there a demo that shows how the sounds can be played on a Nord Electro?

Hi Stef,
Your strings sound perfect. I’ve been buying various version of String instruments (software), without achieving the real disco strings sound that you’ve achieved with this product. I was wondering if I buy the Kontakt version will I be able to open the files in wav format so that I can somehow remap them into the Reason NNXT sampler (my sampler of choice)? If not will they play in the latest free Kontakt player, or will I have to buy the full version?

Sorry for the 101 questions but I mainly write in Reason with Midi keyboards & have wasted many months unsuccessfully trying to get the correct tonality, so hoping not to have to relearn a different sampler instrument – Steve

Hi Stef,

The strings really sound great.
What size (MB) are the program(s) for the Nord library?
Is it one big program with all sounds (falls, tremolo etc) or are there different programs for each sound?

Best regards

Hi, I have a question regarding the Disco strings packaged for the EXS 24 sampler in Logic. I’ve just downloaded them and they sound awesome, however they show up as only one preset. They’re not listed like the 8 separate user sounds patches you have for the Motif XF. Is there any way I can have them configured the same way?

Thanks
Raphael

Hi,
I purchased the Disco strings few days ago for my Kronos. It sounds fantastic.
There is one issue i’m hoping you could help me with. I get a “sample not loaded”
message on top of the screen every time I go through the patches. So I uploaded the
Disco strings again, It would play again. But after you power down and power back up,
I get the same message again even when I had the Auto load function on.
Please provide instructions on how to properly upload and save this plugin.
Thank you,
Marvin
