I've been planning to make my own sample library containing 6 violins, 4 second violins, 4 violas, 3 cellos and 2 kontrabasses. In addition to that I'll record solo violin, viola and cello. I want to create string library my own because I feel that small string sections that are available now don't offer the intimate, warm sound that I need. I want my strings to be expressive, emotional and human.
I'll use Kontakt 2 scripting to add legato and other performances. I think I use tune variaton also to simulate live-feeling. I don't record every possible playing styles, but I think legato sustain, portato and staccato are enough. Maybe I'll record some kind of horror effects also.
So I would like to hear your advices and thought about this. Any tips for creating custom samples? I'm not sure if this will be a commercial product, but if it will be, what kind of a sound would you want and what performances? What is a good price for this kind of product?
