I\'m composing music for a suspense film, and would like to get an opinion on what series of string samples would offer the best instances of suspensful loops and psycho string effects. I\'ve heard kirk hunter is good for this, but what about garritan?
Any of the Avante Garde Samples, The FX samples, Glisses,Below the bridge bows, Ponticelli tremelo, below the Bridge pizzi, glissandos. Lots of dusonant voicings (lots of Minor Second intervals) with the non vibrato sustain samples. Use Marcatto and Spicatto samples for the hard Psycho type attacks, and pay them with grace/ghost notes. I dont have KH srings but I think GOS would blow away KH for horror/suspense with all these options.
