Four violins from four different countries – each with their own distinctive sound – come together to produce a lush, highly cinematic ensemble. All samples are played without vibrato to produce a smooth, organic sound that will fit out the mid-range beautifully.
- Alfred Fallet (Switzerland, ca 1910)
- Mirecourt (France, ca 1870)
- Lewis Pyle (America, ca 1890)
- Unlabeled Italian violin (ca 1890)
Violin Ensemble – Long Notes: Dynamics are controlled by the modwheel or by the dynamics knob in the UI. When the knob is turned all the way down, you are hearing just two violins playing with more violins being added as the dynamics control is increased. At it’s maximum setting, you will hear eight instrument (2 takes of each violin) playing. On Decent Sampler, there are two versions of this patch, one that uses the natural attack time, and the other that allows the attack time to be changed.
Violin Ensemble – Short Notes: This is a classic cinematic spiccato. Dynamics are controlled by note velocity. A reverb knob allows you to control the level of splosh. 8 samples per note (4 round robins / 2 velocity layers).
Violin Ensemble – Short Notes (Lite): This is a cut-down version of the Short Notes patch described above. This may be helpful for mobile devices that have limited RAM as it should use approximately 50% of the memory of the main patch. As this patch was designed for mobile devices, it is only available for Decent Sampler.
Violin Ensemble – Pizzicato (Plucked): The sound of four violins being plucked in unison. 8 samples per note (4 round robins / 2 velocity layers).
Violin Ensemble – Keys: A unique keys instrument based on the Long Notes sample set.
