Cinematic Studio Strings (or CSS) is a strings sample library for Kontakt and Kontakt Player 5.5, from the creators of the critically acclaimed library Cinematic Strings 2. CSS features the sound of a Hollywood-style string section seated in position, and is suited to a wide range of applications. Cinematic Studio Strings is the first product of the new full orchestral series: Cinematic Studio Series, which will feature the entire orchestra including piano (also out now), solo strings, brass, woodwind and percussion.

CSS has true-to-life dynamics, a wide variety of articulations (listed below), and a realistic legato engine. It was recorded with a combination of ribbon and condenser microphones at three mic distances, which can all be controlled independently via the mixer on the GUI, which also features output routing options and reverb.
Cinematic Studio Strings has the following articulations:
- Legato, including legato repetition and portamento.
- Spiccato, staccatissimo, staccato and sfz (long staccato).
- Marcato / fast runs.
- Pizzicato, including Bartok snaps.
- Col legno.
- Trills (half and whole).
- Measured tremolo (tempo sync and free sync).
- Con sordino emulation (whole library).
