Emotional Violin - the most expressive virtual violin of all time
If you are looking for the perfect instrument for film setting, pop music, songwriting, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, Emotional Violin is your first choice!
A unique, virtual instrument, which convinces by its direct and unadulterated sound, its variety of essential to extraordinary articulations as well as by functions like True Legato and Rebowing. With his impressive and at the same time emotional sound expressions, a realism is made possible that has never been achieved before.
Our philosophy behind the recordings is called "Contextual Sampling". In order to find the perfect sound, string instruments were sampled in various ways over a period of four years. We came to the conclusion that no technique comes even close to the actual and natural vibrato of a trained musician. Sampling real vibrato was always more inspiring and organic than adding an artificial vibrato. So our goal was to capture these musical aspects perfectly and to combine them in a versatile yet easily playable instrument.
Emotional Violin was created from well over 100 articulations and their variations. By means of an elaborate, intelligent script, countless articulations are meaningfully linked with each other so that they follow the flow of the user. This is the secret of the Emotional Violin, which leads to an extraordinarily realistic and authentic sound.
Master Patches & True Legato
Emotional Violin features three
master patches, including the "Emotional Violin" and the "Intimate Violin". These contain a multitude of recorded articulations,
which logically overlap and provide the elegantly connected tone in the game by means of "True Legato"
A total of 4 different transition types have been captured in countless sessions and simulate realistic changes in the bow stroke direction or passionate portamento while playing and are simply controlled by the user via the velocity - the tempo of the tone transitions automatically adjusts to your DAW!
A highlight are the ornament keyswitches. Unlike the articulation key switches, these are designed for the moment and bring variations of the already selected articulation into play. You can fade the current playing style by pressing one of the ornament keyswitches into another articulation (e.g. to trills and tremolo) or generate variations (e.g. for a controlled bow stroke change to let a note gently fade out or end in crescendo).
Last but not least, the ornament MKS offers violin-typical effects such as glissando (up and down), flageolet and many more.
Effective sound shaping
Emotional Violin offers a small but effective collection of sound shaping possibilities specifically tailored to the instrument. In addition to a typical 3-band EQ and a switchable Sordinos, the Timbre function can also be found - 15 special, convolution-based presets (so-called Timbre Impulses) were created by 4 renowned and experienced sound engineers especially for this library and allow a simple and characterful modulation of the basic sound of the violin. For the use of the violin as 1st chair violin in an orchestral field of application, there are also timbre EQs that set the violin in its correct place in the orchestra room. The "Room" and "Reverb" modules, which reproduce the sound of real rooms through professionally recorded convolution reverb presets and can also be adjusted separately, provide the final touch.
You're the interpreter!
In order to do justice to your individual playing style, Emotional Violin offers extended functions on the user interface. Thus "PolyLegato" recognizes whether you are currently playing a bound melody line or a chord and the speed of the legato and portamento transitions can be set manually via "Legato Trimming". A special feature is the Attack function - this allows the user to add an additional start sample independent of the currently selected articulation, e.g. to let short notes flow into the legato playing or to simulate harsh initial notes! The "Micro Tuning Option" can be used to apply the most popular tunings (e.g. Pythagorean, Werkmeister III, etc.) to the sound of the violin and to create completely new tunings.
The result is a library with unsurpassed authenticity
Emotional Violin offers a variety of articulations - even unusual ones - that you will not find in any other library. In addition to the 3 large master patches, more than 70 articulations have been grouped into categories, which are available as multi-key-switch patches - from expressive sustains and pinpoint shorts with up to 9 round robins, to trills and exotic effects, to dynamic crossfades between four layers, everything is included. Unused game types/keyswitches can be deactivated at any time via the "Purge function" in order to free up memory for further instruments. If you don't want to work exclusively with keyswitches, this method is perfect for you.
A selection of the game styles included:
Normal sustains with and without vibrato, multiple progressive vibratos, multiple espressivo, flautando, sul ponticello, morbid sustains, harmonics, multiple spiccatos, staccato,Marcato, Tremolo, Tremolo Sul Ponticello, Multiple Trills, Pizzicato, Pizzicato Snap, Paganini Pizzicato, Scratches, Piazolla FX, Various Violin Effects, Violin Percussions
Contact Player 5.7.3 or later required.
Emotional Violin is now the second virtual instrument in the series, produced by Harmonic Subtones, the makers of Emotional Cello.
