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:
