The story

Woven strings is a collaboration between myself and violinist extraordinaire Avery Bright. We sampled his violin, viola and octave viola in 2 separate articulations, drones and phrases. All of the samples were recorded in his other-worldly home studio in Nashville, Tennessee. The drones are quiet and intimate, while the phrases are both beautiful and haunting. Use Woven strings to add a human touch to large string sample libraries, or feature the drones and phrases in tightly recorded folk and acoustic music.

  • Beautiful and soulful collection

    Absolutely a stellar collection of tone, vibe and inspiration. Worth far more than the price which is FREE! Beautifully done.

  • A masterpiece of an instrument

    This is an absolutely incredible instrument, a true gem. The strings are impeccable, and they come with an additional section featuring some mesmerizing violin performances with grace notes, that can be blend with the other strings as well. All together produce this whimsical experience, one that you can't really find even in premium instruments.

    The best thing is that this is also made available for DecentSampler and works perfectly fine too, with the only difference that the "performance" section is not indicated in the keys.

    If I could "complain" about something (just in hope to get an update) it would be that the phrases contain either tones or semi-tones, which makes them unsuitable depending on the scale you are using. It would be just perfect if you had a keyswitch or something, so you can switch between whole-tones or semi-tones.

    Even without that, it's a 5/5. Thank you deeply, Jon!

    As a final note, if you decide to use either Kontakt or DS, be sure to delete the other files, because they are duplicate and they use the exact same samples.

  • Essential for chill / ambient / soundscape

    A superb sampler instrument, I find myself using it again and again. I introduced a friend to it and now his tracks are covered in violin lines from Woven Strings as well!

  • Must Have Library

    Jon has done a phenomenal job with this library. The drones are really awesome and have a great raw and intimate sound and the phrases are just beautiful. But the library really comes to life when you play the drones with your left hand and then add the phrases higher up on the keyboard with your right hand. These two sounds blend exceptionally well and create fantastic string textures. All of the ornaments really add a human touch and make it sound more like a real performance. The GUI is beautiful too and lets you adjust the volume of the individual sounds and also there is a useful build in reverb and delay. Highly recommended!
