Aria Sounds has introduced Aria Violinist, a new solo violin instrument for Kontakt,
Here’s what they have to say about it:
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’.
Here’s a video demo:
Here’s an official audio demo:
- 3 Dynamic levels with alternating up and down bowing for ultra natural sound
- True specifically recorded legato intervals between notes, also programmed for maximum playability
- Staccato and legato playability
- Crossfading dynamics via mod wheel or MIDI CC1
- This violin Kontakt instrument was recorded in the same brilliant hall as their solo cellist, so it works together seamlessly with the cello.
Note: 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.
Aria Violin is priced at £30, with an introductory price of £15. See the Aria site for details.
