Hey guys, I'm looking for a kind of string library that is reminiscent of the quality that J-RPG's in the late 90s through early 2000's had for games on the PS1/2, Dreamcast, Saturn etc. In other words, a string library that is not too realistic yet also not terribly down sampled like the SNES was. 

 

Here's some examples:

I'm guessing these were all done on some midi device? Unfortunately I don't believe I'd have the cash to spend on old hardware sad.png, so am looking if anyone knows of any VSTs/quality soundfonts

 

Any input would be appreciated!

Depending on the DAW you're using, many of these lower quality sampled instruments come bundled with the program. For example, when I was on Sonar I could find many options to fit these needs. Same with Reason and Logic as well as Pro Tools. What program(s) are you using?

 

Thanks,

 

Nate

Hm, didn't even think of that! I use Ableton, and was able to find some decent j-rpg sounding strings in the Tension section. Thanks :)
