At the time of this publication, there does not exist another instrument that can let you play FOUR string sections (violins, violas, cellos and basses) at the SAME TIME.  But wit Kinetic, you get the entire string section in one instrument.  That means you get a separate timeline for each section.  Each timeline contains  64 note or rest events and can be divided into up to 4 "regions".  And you can have each timeline play a different pattern whether you hold down a single note or chord!  

Choose from 30 fun-to-play presets.  And if you really want to get wild, you can choose the any of the same 30 presets for each section separately.  That means you could have the violins playing the "Superman" preset, the violas play the "Terminator" preset, the cellos play the "Xmen" preset, and the basses play the "Cap. America" preset ALL AT THE SAME TIME!  And of course, any or all of these patterns can be edited.

You can also load "perpetual motion" patterns that include very useful accents.  These accents can be based on every 2, 3, 4 or 6 events.  Additionally, you can set whether the accents are subtle, moderate or dynamic.

Kinetic Strings contains 16 violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos, and 4 basses.  Included articulations are Spiccato, Marcato, and Pizzicato.  And each articulation can be "tightened or broadened".  

Recorded at the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica where A-list Los Angeles-based orchestras record and perform.
