Intimate Textures from HeavyOCity - A First Impression

HeavyOCity have released a new expansion pack to its stunning Novo modern strings library titled "Intimate Textures". As the name implies this is a library carrying on from the path laid by Novo and is a sample library of incredible detailed and up close sounding string articulations.

 The detail that can be pulled out very quickly and elegantly using this library is frankly jaw droppingly good. In the example video here i'm merely using 4 patches 2 of which are solo strings and some very simplistic note and chord progressions to create the lush detailed and overly intimate soundscape of strings. This should be an essential buy for anyone looking to add a unique flavour and twist to their computer composed compositions.
