Spitfire Solo Violin Designed For ‘Ultra-Realistic Solo Performance’

Spitfire Audio has announced that Spitfire Solo Violin, described as “its most advanced and powerful performance instrument” is now available.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Our highly intuitive Violin (Virtuoso) Total Performance instrument is included in Spitfire Solo Strings, but is also now available to purchase as a separate Kontakt Player library. Our most detailed and advanced solo violin to date, every note has been performed by world-renowned virtuoso concert violinist Jack Liebeck in The Hall at AIR Studios.

It contains all of the techniques you need to create a realistic solo performance, including five different types of true legato — Fingered Legato, Bowed Legato and Portamento Legato, Runs and Arpeggios. It also features spiccato, staccato, tremolo, trills, molto vibrato, progressive vibrato and non vibrato — all combined together to enable musical phrasing without the need for key-switching, and programmed to react to playing speed and touch.

Easy to play and ultra intuitive, it allows you to focus entirely on your composition, without the need for ‘stitching’ together performances.”

Pricing and Availability

Spitfire Solo Violin is available now for $99 USD / 99 EUR.

  1. That’s a proverbial Real Thing of Beauty and a wise choice for a solo offering. Its easy to imagine embracing this one as a serious go-to for pretty much anything. Spitfire sure knows how to tempt me into the fold. Having the instrument run as a Kontakt PLAYER is also appreciated. I don’t begrudge NI their licensing fee; I just don’t need Kontakt added to my already teetering pile o’ plugs.

  2. Seems weird playing a violin “realistically” from a keyboard with mod wheel and pedals or whatever…

    It reminds me of my old boss at the studio where I worked many years ago… his main instrument was guitar, and he had a MIDI guitar he would use to compose parts for various orchestral instruments like flute, saxophone, violin, etc. Of course it was usually translated over to sheet music and then recorded by actual performers of those instruments, but still… I always found it quite odd to begin with.
