Stringache Horror sound library Artwork by Franz Russo

• 570+ Royalty-Free sounds • 24 bit, 96 kHz, .wav

• 14 Kontakt Instruments (Full v 5.8.1 or later required)


Stringache is a modern horror library of mangled string noises. We’ve used close microphone techniques to record a huge deal of violin stabs and screeches, pizzicatos, cello staccatos, double bass jetè, crescendos, strident string gestures, bowed noises: all of them have been heavily processed and transformed in unsettling, hair-raising cinematic horror effects.

Stringache is for the contemporary composer of horror cinematic music: whenever you need a subtle violin effect to create tension, a rising cluster effect to grab the audience’s attention or a screaming, ear piercing string screech stab, Stringache will be your weapon.

This library also comes with a large set of original recordings of double bass, cello, viola and violin (270+ 96 kHz, 24 bit, .wav). These sounds have been treated with a very transparent process of EQ and de-noising and you can use them as construction elements to create your own sound effects.

14 Kontakt Instruments with a custom UI are included in the sound library. For more details scroll down to the Kontakt Instruments section.


  • 6 folders of high resolution and Royalty-Free sounds
  • A total of 570+ sounds (96 kHz, 24 bit .wav)
  • Crescendos and mangled rising clusters (cello, viola, violin)
  • Piercing high note screeches and jump scares
  • Dark cellos and double bass jetè
  • Twisted string gestures
  • Rhythms and clocks
  • Construction kit of 270+ source recordings (double bass, cello, viola and violin)
  • 14 Kontakt Instruments (Full version 5.8.1 or later required) with a custom UI to further manipulate the sounds


You don’t necessarily need Kontakt to use the sounds. You can import every sounds in your DAW, in your favourite audio sampler, video editing software or in any software able to handle .wav files.

However, if you want to use our Kontakt Instruments, at least a FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 is required (Kontakt Play not supported).

What I said about Transfer goes double for StringAche!! Amazing, well thought out and extremely useful sounds. EVERYONE OF THEM (something I cannot say for other Kontakt libraries full of fluff)!
Keep’em coming Giuseppe!!! The price points can’t be beat either… so hopefully Silence + Other Sounds can gain traction in the Kontakt world so Giuseppe can keep his products affordable…

The sound design and attention to detail with the free Relic and paid Stringache are stunning. Tones of sounds with manipulation controls to make the sounds unique will set your horror productions apart from the others.
Never have I heard such a well thought out library, every key press will bring awe inspiring new ideas to your story telling
I can firmly say this will be the go-to library for many years to come nothing can beat it for price or versatility or sheer amounts of sounds! You’re dealing direct with the composer, producer, sound design and Kontakt scripter.
If you are lacking that huge sound and need cinema grade quality horror sound design and musical composition tools which get under the skin then this is the perfect bundle. You’ll not be disappointed. I’m looking forward to future releasings for this cutting edge composer and company.
