Welcome to Shadow Strings, a darker side of the cello that can add suspense, mystery, and a sense of uniqueness to any of your compositions. This ground-breaking Kontakt sample library pushes the boundaries of traditional cello sounds to offer a rich tapestry of unconventional textures and effects.



When recording sample libraries, you want to capture the best sounds from an instrument. You try to have clean starts and stops, an expressive tone, and balanced dynamics across every sample. With all this in mind, it can be difficult to keep a spontaneous, fresh feel to the samples. It can turn into a chore. The goal during planning and development this library was to avoid as much chore-like recording. Everything is played with abandon, then heavily curated and edited later to highlight the best moments.

Shadow Strings is not so much about recreating the sound of the instruments realistically and accurately --it’s about finding sounds that work well when time-stretched, layered with synths, and fed through effects. Limitations breed creativity, and the cellos and piano used to make this library were the limitations.

At the heart of "Shadow Strings" lies a diverse array of unusual sounds and effects extracted from the depths of the cello's timbral palette. From haunting drones to gritty pulses, ethereal harmonics to distorted screeches, each sound is imbued with a sense of intrigue and mystery, ready to add depth and character to your compositions.



Designed to inspire creativity, "Shadow Strings" is equally at home in cinematic soundscapes, ambient electronica, experimental music, and beyond. Whether you're scoring a tense thriller, crafting atmospheric underscores, or exploring avant-garde sonic landscapes, these sounds will elevate your productions to new heights.

"ZERO-G LICENSE AGREEMENT 1. The sound samples included on this product remain the property of Zero-G Limited and are licensed, not sold, to you for use on your sampling software or equipment. 2. A right to use the enclosed sounds is granted to the original end-user of the product (Licensee) and is NOT transferable. 3. The Licensee may modify the sounds. and MAY USE THE SOUNDS FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES WITHIN MUSICAL COMPOSITIONS, subject to section 7 below. 4. This license expressly forbids resale, relicensing, or other distribution of these sound samples, either as they exist on the enclosed discs, or any modification thereof. You cannot assign, lease, lend, rent, upload or download to or from any database or server, or transfer any or all of the sound samples to another user, or use them in any competitive product. 5. Licensor will not be responsible if the sound samples do not fit the particular purpose of the Licensee. The sound samples are licensed 'as is' without warranties of any kind. Neither the Licensor, or any distributor of Licensor's products, can be held responsible for any direct, indirect, or consequential loss arising from the use of any sound samples licensed from Zero-G Limited in whatever form. 6. The Licensee may use these sound samples for Foley and sound FX in TV or movie soundtracks, video game soundtracks, gaming machines, or toys, but Licensee may not re-distribute the sounds as sounds, multi-sounds, samples, multi-samples, programs or patches – meaning the Licensee cannot re-sell them as part of a sound sample library of any kind thereby effectively competing against Zero-G. Note also that use of the sound samples in isolation in video game soundtracks, gaming machines, or toys where they appear in isolation or as sound effects as part of a music game or remixing game is not permitted without first obtaining a separate written License (subject to availability) from Licensor. 7. Use of the sound samples in 'library music' (also known as 'music libraries' or 'production music'), which is intended for commercial exploitation by relicensing to multiple third parties, is permitted PROVIDED that the samples are used within a musical context and are not presented isolated or 'solo-ed'. The sound samples must be used 'in combination' within musical compositions. For such usage, any rhythm loop samples (which Zero-G regards as being musical clips in themselves) must also be combined with other types of samples or sounds to effectively form a new composition, rather than simply being looped in isolation."
