Cinematique Instruments has released a new KLANG series instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt. Grained Violin features two short patches and one long patch of a violin sent through various inspiring guitar fx pedals.

While playing around with Guitar FX pedals, René and Ege wondered what it would sound like if fed by a violin. So they quickly taped some piezo contact mics to the violin and sent it through some granular pedals as well as weird modulated delays and reverbs.

After recording a lot of material they sorted all the recordings and came up with three very inspiring patches: Grained Pizzicato, Grained Col Legno and Grained Longs – together they are the new Klang instrument.

Grained Violin is a free download for the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher.
