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: 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.
Violin Ensemble – Long (variable attack): This is an alternate version of the Long patch described above that allows you to control the attack time. (The version above uses the natural attack as was recorded.)
Violin Ensemble – Short: 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 (Lite): This is a cut-down version of the Short 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.
Violin Ensemble – Pizzicato (Plucked): The sound of four violins being plucked in unison. 8 samples per note (4 round robins / 2 velocity layers).
