Sound Dust has launched Cloud Viola², an updated version of the viola based sample library that uses unlikely playing techniques and live granular synthesis to create an organic sounding electronic/classical instrument, ideal for both cinematic hugeness and delicate minimalism.

Sound Dust Cloud Viola2

Similar to the Cloud Bass and Cloud Cello, the deeply multisampled Cloud Viola² hybrid Kontakt instrument takes a humble 17th century classical stringed instrument and lovingly shoves it into the modern world.

CLOUD VIOLA² uses unlikly playing techniques and sampling magic to create new tones and textures. From cinematic pads to strange leads she is perfect as a standalone signature instrument or for adding interesting texture to a ‘proper’ orchestra. Using midi controllers and DAW automation she can be played with organic expressiveness and genuine emotion.

CLOUD VIOLA² is completely in her comfort zone in cutting edge electronica, epic trailer massiveness, quirky sound design and delicate contemporary classical.

  • One Kontakt .nki instrument.
  • 60 snapshots.
  • 3 GB of 24-bit samples (uncompressed).
