i am realy did'nt think before buying this strings that its so excellent , it have all things that i want in strings , i tried before other products for oriental strings but its not like that good as your product here , i liked also the good memory consumption , thanks fayez saidawi , i hope for you the good life , always go forward :) , thanks a lot


What a great library! Its 'a must' for those who's fed up from using pre-recorded phrases plug-ins! The nonlinearity techniques used here have made it possible to acquire own characteristic sound, space, and scale using built-in micro-tuner. Highly recommended for Eastern & Western composers. Well done!


Absolutely fabulous very easy, very user freindly, ajustable the 1 only oriental strings i highly recommend it , thanks fayez for honesty and helping through out the intallment it was very easy indeed:)


I am a big fan of Arabic and Oriental style string sections so finding this library is a pleasant surprise. no more chopping up loops for me as finally Oriental Strings lets me perform with a truly realistic sound. We are not overwhelmed with complicated articulations but just the right amount to get the job done. I especially like the fast portamento patch. It is obvious from the quality of this library that the developer has put in a lot of work and the quality is amazing. Full marks from me, I am so please I have now found my Go To Library for Oriental Strings. :-)
