Embertone announces Blakus Cello for Kontakt

Embertone Blakus Cello

Embertone has announced Blakus Cello, a virtual cello instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We bring to you the EMBERTONE BLAKUS CELLO, a collaboration with the mighty Blake Robinson, Australian composer/cellist extraordanaire.

We sought Blake out after he released the popular freebie “Pocket Blakus”, and plunged straight into development. The result is a huuuuge set of samples: expressive sustains, visceral harsh attacks, pizzicatos, tremolos… along with a carefully prepared model for sul ponticello and con sordino with scripted legato.

This cello will add an expressive edge to your music – and hopefully, add a bit of joy to your music-making life!

Blakus Cello features

  • Expressive, beastly cello.
  • “True” legato bow changes and slurs.
  • Pizz, Trem, Sul Pont, Sordino.
