Remote Violin (nano)

A cozy, screechy and oddly intimate violin...

The story

The world has been through a lot. Being unexpectedly confined for so long has been tough and all we can do is find some good and lightness through these weird times. I decided to experiment with the notion a remote recording by requesting the musician, an amazing violinist in this case, to record the samples for this instrument herself and using only her phone.

This string instrument is cozy, screechy and oddly intimate. It features four different sliders and two knobs, all CC assignable, that control the direct audio (recorded by a regular iPhone), two “interference” signals and a reverb created by a less than ideal reverb pedal!

Depending on where the Remote Violin nano will sit in your mix, the high end can be harsh at times, nothing that a low pass filter cannot fix. However, if you are after a more lo-fi feel, you can let the instrument’s natural top end shine through.

  • Warm, slow tremolo like string library

    This is really a beautiful library! The sound is very intimate and tender. So nice to have!

  • Sometime maybe

    I admire anyone who dares to be different. In this high definition bright polished world that we live in there must be a place for this. This is quite unique. The sound almost hurts your ears. I am sure I could use this somewhere....

  • PERFECT - but on low volume!

    This is a really magnificent instrument and very well designed in all aspects - BUT - it suffers from 2 issues. The first is that everything is very loud, and sometimes this results in cracks and clips even though the volume indication is in a safe spot. The second is that every now and then you will notice some very obvious noices from the recording, and there is no way to control that. If those are fixed, this should be a flipping premium instrument. Please please please update it please please!
