The united strings of europe

these are the strings you've been waiting for

Auddict teamed up with the "United Strings of Europe", a London-based string orchestra, to create THE flagship string library. We are extremely proud to present the UNITED STRINGS OF EUROPE.

This astounding library has what we believe to be the most realistic string legato sampled and programmed to this date, recorded at the world-famous "Cadogan Hall" in London. Thanks to the USE musicians' pristine and flawlessly crafted sound, we have captured the most delicate, to the most gargantuan of string sounds for this library, which blends superbly well in a mix due to the fantastic acoustic of this concert hall.

These are the perfect strings for your next score/track; you need look no further...

Why do I need the First AND Second Violins?


This is a very good and valid question, rightly asked by many of you!

The perfect balance and hugely sought after sound of the orchestra has been refined over centuries. In order to capture this sonic beauty with samples, each section must be meticulously captured… multiple players, each with different instruments, slightly different timbre, subtle differences in tuning, vibrato and seated in different positions in the stereo/sonic field.

Combining the USE first and second violins in your palette allows access to this beautiful, lush synergy of instruments… something not possible by layering multiple tracks of first violins, which at the very least, can cause phase problems, but more importantly, withhold your music from its full potential and depth.

With the United Strings of Europe, the second violins are particularly important, as - faithful to how the USE play (and similar to how a lot of score music is recorded) - the second violins actually sit to the right of the conductor, with first violins opposite on the left. It's common for many scores to be recorded this way, and has the benefit of basses sitting in the middle at the back (you want the bass in your track in the middle!)

On top of all this, – from a plainly musical/performance perspective - every single note in the second violins is a different and new performance to the first violins... Every note has slightly different intention, emotion and musicality. Combining and orchestrating with both sections will raise the depth of your music several-fold.
