Description : Emotional Violin is the most expressive virtual violin ever.
If you are looking for the perfect instrument for scoring movies, pop music, songs, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, Emotional Violin is your first choice! A unique virtual instrument that amazes with a variety of articulations, its direct and genuine sound and unusual playing methods, including the technique of holding a bow. With an impressive and at the same time emotional sound, it allows you to get emotionality that has never been achieved before.
Emotional Violin was recorded with different musical contexts to capture the expressiveness and natural bowing technique of real instrumentalists. Intelligent scripting allows for over 50 different playstyles and True Legato, making this a versatile library. In addition to the usual playing styles and articulations, Emotional Violin also includes unusual playing methods such as:
* Paganini Run (Legato)
* Morbid Sustain
* Riccochet
* Flautando
* Sulponti
* Double Stopped Chords

Contextual Sampling: Our philosophy at the time of recording was called “Contextual Sampling”. In order to find the perfect sound, several stringed instruments were taken, recorded over the course of four years. We have come to the conclusion that no technique comes close to the real and natural vibrato of a trained musician. Of course, sampling real vibrato has some conceptual flaws, but such recordings are always more inspiring and organic than adding artificial vibrato. So our goal was to fully capture these musical aspects and combine them into a great sounding and easy to use instrument.
A library with unrivaled fidelity: In this way, various phrases, turns, variations, bars and closing notes can be used as virtually independent phrasings without repetition. This library also features technical enhancements such as Rebowing, which allows you to switch between bow strikes with Keyswitch – extremely useful for long sustain. Vibrato Crossfade works in a similar way, allowing you to easily fade your sound from non-vibrato to vibrato.
Recording process: Emotional Violin was recorded at Mastermix Studios in Munich in a wood paneled room with high ceilings and wide wall spacing. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184 and U87 microphones were specially used close together. Therefore, the acoustic influence of the room is quite subtle and you can use your own effects for further processing. However, you can also use the built-in convolution reverb.
