Staccato Strings


Sourced from a core string ensemble, we’ve taken the crisp and precise notes of the staccato articulation in this analog synthesizer software and processed them to deliver a strong rhythmic foundation for any modern score.


The beauty of this modern string orchestra emerges from combining intricately performed string textures with creatively-processed synthetic elements. The result, a uniquely modern and hybrid sound in this FOUNDATIONS | Staccato Strings instrument.


Built to be a sound design canvas for artists, producers, and composers of all experience levels, the FOUNDATIONS engine features an extensive palette of sound-shaping capabilities, including ARP, Gate, Space, and ADSR.


Heavyocity FOUNDATIONS was created to introduce all music makers to the dynamic world of cinematic sound. FOUNDATIONS is a line of professional-quality free instruments, designed to inspire the next generation of film, TV, and game scores. Try this cinematic strings plugin today!
