0:12 - Celli Staccatissimo 1:20 - Celli Leg. Slur 2:16 - Violins Runs 2:50 - Violins Pizzicato 3:45 - Violins Spiccato 5:03 - Violins Leg. Port 6:44 - Violas NV NV NV VB 8:34 - Full Strings (1st Violin Leg.) All melodies are played directly by me on a MIDI keyboard, and are all improvised. Thus, there was no mixing, quantizing or other changes made to the performance heard. Any similar rhythms to other songs are unintentional. The video is for demonstrative purposes only. If you'd like to see more from this library, you can comment on the video and I can create an additional video showing more from the library. The instruments I chose to feature in this video are among my favorite and most used, and also what I feel best represents the library. For more information on the product, visit this link: http://www.soundsonline.com/Hollywood-Strings Hollywood Strings was produced by Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, and Thomas Bergersen, with Shawn Murphy as a sound engineer. "HOLLYWOOD STRINGS has many groundbreaking features not found in any other collection. Finger position is, for the first time, controllable by the user, so you can play as far up the strings as you want, and get a fuller more romantic Hollywood sound. Vibrato intensity and extensive dynamics are controllable by the user. Extensive multi-dynamic true legato has been sampled for all sections in three different categories: slurred, portamento, and bow change. This results in unsurpassed legato performance that has never been available. HOLLYWOOD STRINGS has five user-controllable mic positions, including main pickup (Decca tree), mid pickup, close pickup, surround pickup, and an alternate vintage circa 1945 RCA ribbon room pickup." Check out some of my original compositions on my channel to hear Hollywood Strings in action.

WOW i think this are the best strings i've ever heard! i want this
is not a problem, i have that version lol
Astrah Cat (8 months ago)
check out 8dio adagio strings. Problem is it requires Kontakt 5.5 full version...
Cody Sorenson (11 months ago)
Do they sound the same with Gold? I'm trying to figure out which version to purchase.

Diamond is 24-bit as well. If add a bunch of instruments there is likely to be less noise buildup in the mix.
Ian Cris (4 months ago)
No! They all sound the same. The only difference between with Gold and Diamond is that Diamond gives more access to all mic positions and has Divisi and more legato articulations as well.

Certainly not bad and most usable but Spitfire libraries are quite another level I feel... But for the current price, HS is great.
Scott Johnson (1 year ago)
Lawrence O Agreed - the sound of spitfire is incredible. Might do a video on some of their libraries soon :)

does any one know what Violas NV NV NV VB stand for?
Astrah Cat (8 months ago)
Non Vibrato...Non Vibrato...Non Vibrato....F*CKIN VIBRATO!!!
Andre M (1 year ago)
Non-Vibrato and Vibrato. It means that instrument sample has three layers of varying dynamic levels and vibrato depths that are controlled by a mod wheel.

I hear this is fucking murder to instal.
Rohann van Rensburg (1 year ago)
Takes up tonnnns of room. But a straight forward install.
Garrett Jenkins (2 years ago)
Ooooo this is my kind of shiiz
Alex Grammann (2 years ago)
If I were to export midi from say Guitar Pro 6, does it sound just as good? I've got that problem with EzDrummer that their midi maps that are included sound way better that if I were to export mine from GP6 and adjusting the velocities... Highly considering buying it since it's 50% off atm!
I want to buy this. I have an Intel i5 Core, but it says i need a Intel 2 on the specs. Would Hollywood Strings still work on my pc? Please help!
+Brittany Thompson I double checked with EW, they said the Intel i5 is actually higher than what they said for minimum requirements. 
Brittany Thompson (2 years ago)
how fast is your i5? 2.7 is the minimum for dual core processors.
Brittany Thompson (2 years ago)
isn't there an option you can click to make the notes transition sound more realistic? Thought I saw someone else do it in a video...could be wrong :/
Scott Johnson (2 years ago)
There's an example of this at 5:03 in the video.
Daniel Cann Music (2 years ago)
+Brittany Thompson True legato, it's on the player menu
Túlio Edson (3 years ago)
Hi! You have a link for download player off EWQL Hollywood Strings?
Rebekah Parkhurst (3 years ago)
At 4:00 - is the tempo synced with your DAW settings? Or is it a set BPM?
Scott Johnson (2 years ago)
+Rebekah Pankhurst Everything was played by me into my DAW.

Hi it would be great if you can show how well the detache samples do the job. thanks for the video,
AnonymStikkAv (3 years ago)
I'd like to see a demo of portamento, mic positions and realism with solo instruments (pre-made, not improvised). Why does no one go into detail with this? :(
Kyle Hottel (2 years ago)
It's quite difficult to sample legato and portamento in a room with natural reverb. Sometimes companies have to make decisions to avoid the expressive articulations for realism reasons. Besides, nothing can beat a real musician's live portamento. The day sample libraries can replace performers is the day we are all doomed haha
Mahlercougar (3 years ago)
+AnonymStikkAv Same with Viola runs for fast passages like he did here with the Celli Staccatissimo. I looked and I cant find any (Viola slur runs) in my Diamond library :(
leeahegg (3 years ago)
Woa! Excellent demo video! How much ram you packed? Thank you so much!
leeahegg (2 years ago)
Thank you so much! By the way, I use SSD now and replace my thunderbolt raid! No compliant anymore, cheer1
Scott Johnson (2 years ago)
I do now, yes. However, the video was made before I installed my SSD.
leeahegg (3 years ago)
I don't have an SSD! But I am using external raid0 via thunderbolt connection! 
far ema (3 years ago)
+Scott Johnson u have ssd?
Scott Johnson (3 years ago)
+leeahegg Thanks! 64 GB of RAM.
Estevao pinheiro (4 years ago)
Is this program have a limited time to use when you buy it?because i dont understand the option of buy liscense
Estevao pinheiro (4 years ago)
thank you very much
Alex (4 years ago)
No, it's full version. The option to buy a full license is for the customers of CCC as it says. Notice that CCC is different from CCC2!: CCC does not include the liceses.
Felix J Music (4 years ago)
Is there any real DEMO so u can try it out for free for a limited time or so..? Im actually interested in buying this.
SuperJohnnyRobert (4 years ago)
how much ram ?
Scott Johnson (3 years ago)
+SuperJohnnyRobert 64 GB.
Sotir ivanovski (4 years ago)
Hi, Ive just bought CCC2, from east west. Its a huge library. I'm a beginner really, but have high passion and aspiration. I am wondering if you could point me to tutorials on how to use EAST West Hollywood strings, brass, in fact all of them.....Something step by step...which not only shows you how to use it, but for what.
Mark Aven (1 year ago)
I would say that about 6 consistent months of piano lessons will help most, you can learn on a keyboard. That, coupled with using a DAW and doing it every day. You'll get it. : )
far ema (3 years ago)
+Sotir ivanovski u just gotta start learning it ur self ... there is no shorcut in life.

@ibanezman04: its not a question of ram size, its issue of bus speed, reading speed of drive, so SSD is your solution
Ian Cris (4 months ago)
But some patches and libraries open really quickly on a 5400rpm drive. An SSD is required for the big East West libraries and other VSTs as well.
Scott Johnson (2 years ago)
+tronic Precisely. Although, this video was made before I had a SSD.
ibanezman04 (5 years ago)
How much RAM are you packing?. my samples dont load not half as quick as this.. Great demo by the way!!
