HORROR STRING NOISES
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.

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 Player not supported).
Your opinion matters. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Stringache.
cool bunch of sounds
A cool bunch of sounds which can be useful for stings or to add to other pieces. Good sound quality with lots of tweaking avaiable
i would of liked a few melodic instruments with 3 or 4 octave range etc so we can create some creepy melodies with but i guess that’s not the aim for this particular library but hope some are included in future.
Response from Silence+Other Sounds
Hi Tom! Thank you for your nice words, if you’re looking for playable tonal elements, we have a new release called ‘Freaktion’ which includes also some more melody-oriented Kontakt instruments. In case you are curious, here’s the link with the demos 🙂 Thanks again! https://silenceandothersounds.com/products/freaktion/
And yet, ANOTHER great little library...
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…
