Native Instruments has introduced Action Strings – a phrase-based instrument, featuring a 60-piece string orchestra, that’s designed to let you create ‘epic, blockbuster sound’.

Performed by the FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague, Action Strings offers with over 14GB of musical phrases. The orchestra is made up of a high ensemble featuring 22 violins, eight violas and six cellos, as well as a low ensemble containing ten violas, eight cellos and six basses. The phrases range from basic rhythmic patterns to intricate melodies, each recorded live in every key, and in two dynamic levels.


The phrases in ACTION STRINGS were performed by the FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague – sampled in exquisite detail by experienced score producers, Dynamedion. The orchestra was made up of 60 musicians – 36 in the high ensemble (22 violins, eight violas and six cellos), and 24 in the low ensemble (ten violas, eight cellos and six basses).

The phrases range from basic rhythm patterns to complex melodies, each recorded live in every key, and in two dynamic levels. Blend between the dynamic levels via the mod wheel, switch the harmonic patterns to minor or major via velocity, or change the meter to fit your production. And because these strings are recorded as phrases, the sound is stunningly natural at all times.


ACTION STRINGS is designed to make your job easier. All the 150 phrases are organized into themes of five, with five additional custom slots. All slots can be assigned or changed easily via the phrase browser, making the coherent development of your track completely straightforward. Every phrase is playable in all keys, and is selectable via keyswitch – create epic progressions without spending a lifetime studying music theory and arrangement.

Play phrases in Trigger mode for more control or sync your phrase to the ‘1’ of your host’s tempo. Utilizing KONTAKT’s Time-Machine Pro, you can drastically alter the tempo of the phrase in real time, even progressive changes like ritardando or accelerando – the sound remains strong and natural at all times.


Founded by Pierre Langer and Tilman Sillescu, Dynamedion has established itself as a leader in soundtrack composition, orchestra production and sound design on the European computer game market. Their work on Halo Legends, KINECT StarWars, Alan Wake, and Crysis 2 have set the standard for large-scale projects in the industry and won a reputation for unsurpassed quality. Also highly renowned for scoring movie trailers – including The Last King of Scotland, The Bourne Ultimatum and 10,000 B.C – Dynamedion have received numerous prizes and music awards in the past decade.

The epic, blockbuster sound of a string orchestra, instantly playable and recorded live in stunning quality.

    Thanks a lot for this sharing. I’ve a problem with this library. I downloaded all the links but there were no any files in “Action Strings Library Part 1.pkg” but Resources folder. And i delete all my rar files when i open all rar files :( I can’t use it with my kontakt 5 player. How many files must have in “Action Strings Library Part 1.pkg”? Can you upload just them please? Thank you from now.

  6. nyphot says:

    Awesome, but how does it install? (Win 7) I double click on the installer and get “Please run this installer from the original DVD”. I tried running it as the Admin, but same result.

    I moved all of the extracted files from the .iso to my Instruments folder. Kontakt 5 recognizes the folders, but it doesn’t recognize any files or libraries.

    So. Can I burn the individual folders to separate dvds, do I need to figure out how to use the multi-density dvds, or am I missing something so simple that you guys are going to jab me with pointed sticks? lol.

    Thanks again!!

  13. ZiON says:


    you have to mount the dvd with magiciSO software , than run the installer it will run normally, or burn it on dvd
