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.

Incredible Sonics

5.0 rating

This library is exactly what I’d been looking for out there and has exceeded my expectations. Beautiful recordings of each sonic, rich and powerful. I’ve already begun to implement this into my work. My fear is that everyone else will also and being unique within this unique genre will be the challenge! The only thing I would have liked for this to include, or for a follow up library is to also have some legato notes played for other options. It’s a great source of content nonetheless, love it!
