Performance Samples has announced the release of Solos of the Sea – Solo Violin A, a Kontakt instrument library with the sounds of solo strings recorded in motion, featuring expressive pitch-memory legato.

Performance Samples Solos of the Sea Solo Violin A

Solos of the Sea – Solo Violin A is a very simple solo legato instrument.

The library continues along the lines of the unfolding Con Moto series with ‘active-bow’ sustains and legatos recorded con moto (with motion). The latter is here expanded upon with a ‘pitch-memory’ adaptation, which helps minimize a musician’s susceptibility to timbral variation between sustain and shorter legato assets.

Solos of the Sea – Solo Violin A features

  • Solo violinist.
  • One dynamic layer (in the territory of mf-f).
  • Bow-change pitch-memory legato, recorded con moto (with movement in the bowing and vibrato).
  • “Active-bow” sustains (non-static longs that move and evolve while simultaneously maintaining the dynamic/timbre).
  • Short, responsive release samples.
  • One mic position – recorded at a moderately close distance in a hall with a stereo pair.
  • 48kHz / 24bit.
  • NCW-compressed, ~175 MB total.
  • Built for Kontakt 5.5.1 and above – full, retail version of Kontakt required.
  • Download via Continuata.

The library is available at the intro price of $99 USD through September 30th, 2018 (regular $139 USD).
