Auddict has launched Virtuosic Violin, a violin instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
With an instrument as diverse, capable, and exposed as the violin, there is no cutting corners, so we strived to capture as much of the possible sounds a violin can make as possible, resulting in the huge list of articulations you can see below, as well as four sampled legato styles, also shown below. We even specially sampled slurred and bowed legato so you can correctly and realistically phrase passages, and a specially sampled “fast legato” set of intervals, which will allow you to play virtuosic runs and scale passages.
On top of this, we want our instruments to be as close in sonic-flexibility to a real situation as they can be, so in addition to providing close and stage mic positions, we have also made sure to have both a ribbon and condenser mic, which you can choose to switch between. Both sounds offer so much in their own right, the ribbon having a beautiful smooth tone, and the condenser being ruthless in exposing every little detail in the sound.
The stereo mic position can be widened and narrowed by dragging the mics in the interface.
Virtuosic Violin for Kontakt 4 or higher (full version) is available for the introductory price of £42.50 GBP (regular £85 GBP).
