Aria’s first solo violin instrument for the Kontakt platform, (Will only work in Kontakt 5 and above, not the free player). The second of our vst string series, and recorded in the same hall as our solo cello instrument. With true legato sampled intervals, plus three dynamic layers. On top of this, we have programmed an up-bow, down-bow alternation for as natural a sound to the instrument as possible. Also included in this instrument pack are staccato/short notes. Like the cello sound we previously released, we have once again worked with a world class violinist, getting the perfect tone and massive range right into the highest but still crystal clear notes. The vibrato in the samples was also planned in such a way that it gives an extra human level, but isn’t controlled by software, allowing it to breathe more like a real instrument rather than sound like a “Kontakt instrument”. Crossfading between dynamics is possible by using the mod wheel. Keep checking back for more up and coming sample libraries by ARIA, it will only get better from here on. We primarily design plug-ins and instruments for Kontakt 5 and above. The full version of Kontakt 5 or above is required to run this software. It will not run on the free version of Kontakt player.
This violin Kontakt instrument was recorded in the same brilliant hall as our solo cellist, so not only does the quality of the sound uphold, but it also workd together seamlessly with the cello, as they sound in the same space. The violinist recording these samples has full control and musicality over their instrument, and it comes through in these samples when they are played. Each note was played and recorded with care and attention, and likewise, later programmed to bring out the best in the samples in use through Kontakt sampling.
