Best Service releases “Emotional Violin”

If you are looking for the perfect instrument for film scoring, pop music, songwriting, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, the Emotional Violin is your first choice! A unique, virtual instrument that convinces through its variety of articulations, its direct and unadulterated sound and unusual playing techniques, including rebowing. With its impressive and at the same time emotional sound, it enables expressions that have never been achieved before.

Emotional Violin has been recorded throughout in a musical context to capture the expressiveness and natural bowing of real instrumentalists. The intelligent scripting enables more than 50 different playing styles and True Legato, making this library extremely versatile. In addition to the usual playing styles and articulations, the Emotional Violin also features extraordinary techniques such as:

  • Paganini Run (Legato)

  • Morbid Sustain

  • Riccochet

  • Flautando

  • Sulponti

  • Double Stopped Chords

    Contextual Sampling

    Our philosophy during the recordings is called “Contextual Sampling”. In order to find the perfect sound, various string instruments were recorded 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.

    The sampling of real vibrato of course has some conceptual drawbacks, but these recordings are always more inspiring and organic than adding an artificial vibrato. So our goal was to perfectly capture these musical aspects and combine them into a great sounding and easy to play instrument.

    The result is a library with unsurpassed authenticity

    This wonderful sound is rounded off by a multitude of articulations. Thus, different phrases, turns, variations, bars and closing notes can be used as actually independent phrasings without having to repeat themselves. So that these sounds and articulations can be used appropriately to the context, respective keyswitches such as Delicate Fast, Vivid or Moderate have been added.

    Emotional Violin also offers unusual articulations that you won’t find in any other library. Simply select from one of the following:

  • 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

  • Diverse Violin Effects

  • Violin Percussions

This library also features technical refinements such as Rebowing, which allows you to switch between bow strokes using the Keyswitch – extremely useful for long sustains. The Vibrato Crossfade works in a similar way, allowing you to easily fade from non-vibrato to vibrato.

The Recording

The Emotional Violin was recorded at the Mastermix Studio near Munich in a wood-panelled room with a large ceiling height and the greatest possible distance to the wall. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184 and U87 microphones were deliberately used to record closely. Therefore the room amount is quite subtle and you can use your own effects for further processing. However, you can also use the integrated Convolution Reverb.

Emotional Violin Articulations Screen
Kontakt

Emotional Violin has three True Legato Master Patches, including the “Romantic Violin” and the “Intimate Violin”. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations, which logically overlap. If, for example, you play an opening note that of course has no legato, you will only hear one note with a natural string opening. As soon as you play legato or sustain notes, you will hear a note that originates from the corresponding context of the original recordings.

In addition, the library contains more than 70 articulations, which are grouped into categories and are available as multi-keyswitch patches – everything from simple sustains to dynamic crossfades between four layers is included. So if you don’t want to work with keyswitches, this way of working is perfect for you.
To ensure the highest possible liveliness, many variations contain up to 9 Round Robins.


Emotional Violin is the second virtual instrument in this series, produced by Harmonic Subtones, the makers of Emotional Cello.

Celtic ERA – when druids of the Highlands ask for a dance

With Celtic ERA, Eduardo Tarilonte once again takes you to a fascinating journey through time. This time, he travels far north to the roots of the Celtic culture. Sounds having been been played in the green vastness and the high mountains of Ireland for ages are now available at your fingertips with Celtic ERA.

After creating successful libraries such as Ancient ERA Persia, Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and ERA Medieval Legends, sample-mastermind Eduardo Tarilonte has dedicated himself to the sound of Nordic myths.

Whenever the unmistakable flutes are heard, they’ll magically enchant our dreaming minds with pictures of the green island and its majestic Nordic mountains. Hence, Celtic ERA is the pick of the bunch for film-scores and background music for television documentations taking place or being settled in this region. Whether historical or fictional background, the authentic sounds of Celtic ERA will lift the power of the pictures to a new level.Celtic ERA Screen and Box Image

Celtic Era Instruments Image 1The Instruments

For Celtic ERA, Eduardo Tarilonte has recorded 23 brass-, string- and percussion-instruments in full detail and with immaculate quality. Find catchy flutes, dreamy harps, the famous Uilleann Pipes and the indispensable Bodhran drums. To achieve an even greater variety, some sounds have been created by recording two different instruments of the same kind. This allows you for example to play a harp duet without the instruments sounding identical.

In addition, authentic phrases have been recorded as MIDI-patterns as well as inspiring soundscapes. Naturally, the instruments are offered in all of their typical articulations with an added true legato function.

The instruments of this roundabout 18-GB-heavy library (consisting of more than 18,000 samples) are elaborated multisamples (24 bit/ 44,1 kHz) with several dynamic graduations, various articulations, round-robin- and real legato-samples as well as dedicated glissando samples.

The Engine

Celtic ERA transfers the sounds of the far north, that have been preserved until this day from times long gone by, into today’s DAW-based production environment. The carefully programmed user interface of the Engine player makes work with this library real easy, allowing musicians to be inspired by the libraries’ sounds to fully unfold their creativity.

Celtic Era GUI Screen 1Who is it for?

The sounds of Celtic ERA are completely unique and cannot be found in any other library. The outstanding selection of instruments, the MIDI-patterns and soundscapes provide you with an extensive collection which leaves as good as no sound left to be desired.

The Recordings

Eldana Studio

The recordings for Celtic ERA were made in Eldana studios in Spanish Dueñas . All instruments have been played by superb musicians being part of the Irish music scene. Martino Vacca (Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute, Whistles), Karen Hickey (Fiddle), Carlos Martín Aires (Acoustic Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, Tenor Banjo), Jean Yves Magre (Highland Pipes), Pablo Vergara (Bodhrans). Eduardo Tarilonte, the creator of this library, single-handedly played the Concertinas and Celtic Harps while the three historical instruments were performed by Abraham Cureiro.

All instruments have been recorded using selected Kahayan U47-microphones into preamplifiers by the same manufacturer. Miking was carried out intentionally close and thus without room detail. This procedure offers full control over the following sculpting of the sounds and effects. Therefore, the sounds of Celtic ERA can be combined with Eduardo Tarilonte’s others libraries without any difficulty.

Recensione Soundiron Microrgan

Microrgan is a vintage 49-key electric reed organ built in the 1950s by the Italian electronics company Farfisa. Rare and highly sought-after, the origins of this classic instrument are shrouded in mystery and our particular keyboard has seen more than its fair share of wear and tear over the years, although it still sounds good as new thanks to its rugged mechanics and simple design. We’ve captured it’s warm, humble and yet full-bodied tone with infinite sustains and tight staccatos. But to take this far beyond an ordinary reed organ sample library, we’ve also created 20 awesome sound-designed custom synth and special effect presets and 40 unique sound-designed ambiences that can be played chromatically as atmospheric synths, dronescapes and pads or used directly in your DAW for underscoring and texture.

 

But fret not! We’ve captured it’s old-school fat, buttery tone, with infinite sustains and tight staccatos. To take this far beyond an ordinary analog chord organ sample library, we’ve also created 20 awesome sound-designed custom chord organ and effects presets and 40 unique sound-designed ambiences that can be played chromatically as atmospheric synths, dronescapes and pads or used directly in your DAW for underscoring and texture.

We’ve packed the GUI with lots of great sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the shape in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering. The “Glide” control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You’ll also find an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filter, with assignable modulation control options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.

The library is programmed for the full version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OSX 10.9 or later / Windows 7 or later required). It comes equipped with a custom user interface and dynamic sound shaping and mixing controls: volume, attack, release, offset, vibrato, octave, bank preset loading (with optional key-switching), adaptive arpeggiation, advanced LFO and filter systems and our full FX rack with convolution reverb with your choice of well over 100 different rooms, halls, spaces and special FX impulses.

Microrgan was recorded by John Valasis. John is a Greek-born composer, producer and sound designer. From his Athens based studio, he delivers scoring, foley and sound design services for a great number of local and international clients. John’s clientele includes prestigious brands such as Native Instruments, Ableton, Soundiron, Virgin, Amazon Prime Video, Vice Magazine and the BBC. As of 2014, John belongs to the roster of Ninja Tune’s publishing house Just Isn’t Music, alongside artists like Amon Tobin, Bonobo, Flying Lotus and The Cinematic Orchestra.

John’s professional experience began in the 90s, emerging in his late teens as a composer and producer for popular music and gradually expanding his skill-set across a large variety of genres. With the abilities he acquired through his 20-year professional career, as well as his genuine love for soulful music, he has managed to craft a strong, musical identity which sound both personal and diverse. When not working on tight deadlines, John uses Poordream as a vehicle to freely express his emotions and influences without defining limits and by exploring sound and composition beyond the boundaries of conventional electronic music.

Embertone Joshua Bell Violin Recensione

https://www.embertone.com/instruments/joshuabellviolin.php

 

Embertone set out to create a new standard in virtual solo strings, offering plenty of inspiration without sacrificing flexibility… and with the unmistakable, iconic sound of internationally acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell.

The instrument offers a huge variety of standard articulations, like sustains, pizzicatos, staccatos, spiccatos, and more, along with a number of sample sets you’re not likely to find anywhere else. Joshua performed an incredible set of eerie harmonics transitions, and a set of “ultra-flautando”, a special technique he can harness from his 300+ year-old violin.

Though this VI is incredibly complex, featuring almost 20,000 individual samples, it’s designed to be simple to use. Play it straight out of the box and it will inspire and surprise you! This virtual violin utilizes intelligent and predictive programming using a diverse array of musical tendencies and rule sets. And with 12 complete “legato”/transition types, you can perform the Joshua Bell violin at various tempos, dynamics, in different styles, while retaining an authentic performance!

Grammy® winner Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated winning violinists of his era, and his restless curiosity, passion, and multi-faceted musical interests are unparalleled in the world of classical music. With more than 40 CDS recorded of classical repertoire as well as soundtracks including the Oscar® winning score for The Red Violin, Bell has been embraced by wide television audiences with appearances ranging from The Tonight Show, Tavis Smiley, Charlie Rose, to CBS Sunday Morning and Sesame Street. He was one of the first classical artists to have a music video on VH1 and he was the subject of a BBC Omnibus documentary.

Bell has appeared in publications ranging from The Strad and Gramophone to Time, The New York Times, People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, GQ, Vogue and Reader’s Digest among many. Bell performs on the world’s most precious stages from Carnegie Hall 33 times to the Hollywood Bowl with his 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin and his late 18th century French bow by François Tourte.

The 1713 ‘Huberman’ Stradivari violin now owned by Joshua Bell has a thrilling history. Formerly known as the ‘Gibson’ Strad, the violin was twice stolen from the Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman and for nearly 50 years remained undiscovered in plain sight, disguised by its thief – a café violinist named Julian Altman who made a deathbed confession to his wife.

After Altman’s death, his wife had the violin authenticated and reported to the proper authorities. The fiddle was then sold to Norbert Brainin, an acclaimed English violinist, who later decided to sell the violin to a dealer who had an investor eyeing it for a museum piece. Then Joshua stepped in, showing great empathy for its rightful owner, Bronislaw Huberman, who had passed away in 1947, and for the instrument which he felt must be played.

In Bell’s words, “The idea of the violin resting silently in a vault made me ill. This was an instrument meant to be played, not just admired.” He purchased the violin for nearly $4 million, selling his own $2 million 1732 Tom Taylor Strad in the process. The rest is history, and Joshua uses the instrument exclusively to this day!

Shimmer Shake Strike - Struck Percussion Selection

Shimmer Shake Strike is a one-stop-shop for all your “top of mix” percussion needs.

This sample library of tambourines, shakers and small hand percussion allows you to create and control the sound of realistic, human performances with ease.

Useful to almost every genre of music, Shimmer Shake Strike will be a library that you will use over and over for years to come.

“PERFORMANCE” BAKED IN

  • Traditional “sampling” of instruments is rather straightforward: record the instrument being played from soft to hard.

  • But for tambourines and shakers, that approach will never come close to reproducing a life-like sound.

  • Instead, we recorded percussion performances, harvesting samples of forward and backward thrusts, accents, twists, and variations of the important “in-between” sounds that glue everything together.

  • Using this approach, each shaker pulls from 130 samples across 13 articulation types.

  • But more importantly: when using Shimmer Shake Strike, samples from the performances reconnect to fit your track, retaining the nuance and variation of the player.
