Expressive E Arché Collection Offers Violin, Viola & Cello Virtual Instruments For Expressive Controllers

Expressive E, creators of the Touché expressive controller, have introduced the Arché Collection, a new plug-in suite containing three realistic physical models of Violin, Viola and Cello.

Arché simulates the physics of a real bow striking real strings in ‘painstaking detail’, leading to a level of realism that they say ‘has never been heard before in simulated string instruments. played with a keyboard interface”.  While designed for the fullest integration using Expressive E Touché and Touché SE controllers, users can also enjoy most functions of Arché using standard MIDI keyboard controllers.

Here’s a video intro, and examples of each virtual instrument:

  1. Would have loved to have seen/heard a double-bass, as well.

    There is a violin option for Reaktor, (can’t remember what it’s called). There’s FingerFiddle for iOS, which is decent. But this Arche seems richer and more responsive.
