Static Felt Violins
Static Felt Violins is a first serious sampling venture of mine.
It’s my 100-year old violin prepared with standard mute, felt mute (a mic vocal sponge) and tin foil on each string played (and layered) with fast tremolo.
The sound was incredible when I gave it a go, and I’d play more often with it if it wasn’t for the hassle of preparing the violin each time, hense why I sampled it.
With splosh/delays etc it can be quite other-worldly.

A Shimmering Trem
The various mutes on the violin add a simply stunning shimmer to the sound. I found that layering these over top of other sampled tremolo sections works wonders in creating a beautiful texture. Recommended. :]
