Red Room Audio has announced the launch of the Traveler Series Gypsy Fiddle, continuing the legacy of “Traveler Series” products recorded on location around the globe with world-class musicians.
The fiddle has been deep sampled with the full range of passionate playing on show. The library features 4.4GB of content with over 10,500 samples, over 20 core and extended articulations and 15 traditional ornaments, plus 650 Phrases & FX.
Gypsy fiddle playing is known the world over for its passion, romance and virtuosity and the music is synonymous with the campfire and the open road. Gypsy fiddlers tend to be highly skilled. Their playing swoops dramatically from the highest to the lowest positions, using cascades of arpeggios, chromatic runs, harmonics, pizzicato, exaggerated vibrato and extreme ornamentation.
For our Gypsy Fiddle we traveled to Sofia, Bulgaria where we had the pleasure of working with renowned Bulgarian violinist Stoimen Peev. Stoimen is a member of the elite Sofia Soloists and Sofia Quartet ensembles as well as the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir and has performed classical and traditional Bulgarian music all over the world. The lively sessions were superbly directed by co-producer George Strezov and engineer Ivan Boshev at “The Bakery” studio.
