If you’ve ever wanted to utilize the massive emotional force a cello contains, LYRICAL CELLO PHRASES is the right heavy-hitter for you.

Experience this feeling with LYRICAL CELLO PHRASES and give yourself the gift of a great tool to take your workflow, your productivity and creativity to the very next level.
THE IDEA BEHIND LYRICAL CELLO PHRASES
We were given a challenge by a group of composers: they challenged us to build a cello tool to take their compositional process to a whole new level: these composers not only wanted their needs taken care of, they also asked us to find a way to leverage the strengths a real instrumentalist brings to the table. We asked our composers what they look for in a new instrument. They told us they need high quality sound, they need their work-flow to be at the speed of their thoughts or faster and, best case scenario, that these instruments inspire new creative ideas.
LYRICAL CELLO PHRASES is exactly the best of both worlds: it combines the creative freedom a composer enjoys with the expressivity and emotionality a real instrumentalist sets free – all at your fingertips.
[NEW FEATURE: We’ve updated the software, so you can now change themes via key switch. Watch the “Update Video” below]
The themes were all played by our cellist of choice Mátyás Ölveti (recorded for “The Elder Scrolls Online”, …) whose improvisatorial talent brought out the strengths of the cello full throttle. With over 70 freely combinable phrases spread over 10 themes throughout all keys as well as 2 additional bonus themes this library is a tool that empowers every creative composer to get the project off of the ground with an impact.
Besides the selection of these hand-crafted themes the Lyrical Cello Phrases includes a legato instrument so you can play the melodies that come to you freely with two different note-lengths to chose from.
