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!
