Product Information

'Emotional Violin' is a Kontakt Instrument from Best Service which was sampled in a very specific way to capture sounds in a 'musical context'. Numerous articulations make this Kontakt Library the perfect companion for composing great music.

If you are looking for the perfect instrument for film scoring, Pop music, songwriting, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, then 'Emotional Violin' for Kontakt is a fantastic choice. It's a unique virtual instrument with a variety of articulations including unusual playing techniques, like rebowing. With its impressive emotional sound, it enables expression that has never been achieved.
The Scripting
'Emotional Violin' was recorded in a musical context to capture the full expression and natural bowing techniques of professional instrumentalists. The intelligent scripting enables more than 50 playing styles and True Legato, making this library extremely versatile.
Includes Extraordinary Techniques
• Paganini Runs (Legato)
• Morbid Sustains
• Riccochets
• Flautandos
• Sulponti
• Double Stopped Chords
Contextual Sampling
The philosophy employed during these recordings was 'Contextual Sampling'. To find the perfect sound, various string instruments were recorded over a period of four years. No technique has come close to the actual and natural vibrato of trained musicians. The sampling of real vibrato has some conceptual drawbacks, but these recordings are always more inspiring and organic than adding an artificial vibrato. So the goal was to perfectly capture these musical aspects and combine them into a great sounding and easy to play instrument.
The Result?
A violin sample library with unsurpassed authenticity. This beautiful sound is finished off with a multitude of articulations. Thus, phrases, turns, variations, bars and closing notes can be used as independent phrases without having to repeat themselves. So that the sounds and articulations can be used in an appropriate context -  keyswitches like Delicate Fast, Vivid and Moderate have been added, respectively.
The Articulations
• Sustains with/without Vibrato

Additional Features
This library also features technical refinements such as Rebowing, which allows you to switch between bow strokes using the Keyswitch, extremely useful for long sustains. The Vibrato Crossfade works in a similar way, allowing you to easily fade from non-vibrato to vibrato.
The Recordings
'Emotional Violin' was recorded at the Mastermix Studio near Munich in a wood-panelled room with a large ceiling height and the greatest possible distance to the wall. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184 and U87 microphones were deliberately used to record closely. Therefore the room amount is quite subtle and you can use your own effects for further processing. However, you can also use the integrated Convolution Reverb.
'Emotional Violin' has three True Legato master patches, including 'Romantic Violin' and 'Intimate Violin'. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations which logically overlap. If, for example, you play an opening note that of course has no legato, you will only hear one note with a natural string opening. As soon as you play legato or sustain notes, you will hear a note that originates from the corresponding context of the original recordings.
In addition, the library contains more than 70 articulations, which are grouped into categories and are available as multi-keyswitch patches, everything from simple sustains to dynamic crossfades between four layers is included. So if you don't want to work with keyswitches, this way of working is perfect for you. To ensure the highest possible liveliness, many variations contain up to 9 Round Robins.
'Emotional Violin' is the second virtual instrument in this series, produced by Harmonic Subtones, the makers of 'Emotional Cello'.
