Box Violin Swells

Box Violin Swells


In October 2019, I built several violins, including this one out of a long paintbrush box. Since then, I’ve used it on countless tracks and a couple film scores. This is an ensemble patch featuring 8 layers–my take on a classic “swells” articulation.

Can’t wait to try this one out. Is it still available, David? I’m getting an error message upon trying to download.

Very versitile when layered with other samples. Very nicely recorded.
