IM pretty much a newbie with a little bit of prior experience working on an old standup piano. But i want to move to home recording and there is a particular set of synth effects im looking for. Id like to know if these string patches are part of a certain keyboard type or if they are a specific computer software program. Im very interested in the extrodinarily lush symphonic effects of the bands Hellveto and I Shalt Become. Here are some examples:



Hearing these two side by side, i can tell that both bands used different techniques to get their sounds. I guess the question would be are they making use of a specific synth, or a computer midi studio program? If so, then what ones do you recognize? Im EXTREMELY interested in the exact strings effects used by I Shalt Become, they sound very realistic.

Hm for that you'll need something good. I would recommend you EWQL Symphonic orchestra:
or Project Sam Symphobia 3 - Lumina Library
INSPELL - Black-death metal
Fallen Art - Most of the active bands and projects I'm working with
Schadenfreude - Some late recorded stuff

Most modern stand alone synth workstations can do this sort of thing. I have a Korg Triton and can get sounds like that easily enough. And you can always load better samples into it if needed. Software synths can load much larger and better samples but then you have to bother with the computer.
