Scary Flautando Violin

A flautando that descends into a scary mess of ricochet, glissando and percussive tapping.

The story

Using a Neumann KM183 through a Neve Mic preamp this instrument explores how the intimate sound of flautando can descend into a scary mess of ricochet, glissando and percussive tapping.

Although the violin starts at G2 the samples are stretched down to give a fake cello sound. Open the mod wheel and increase velocity to get the scariest tones!

Thanks Kasia for the awesome violin playing!

  • Sublime And Beautiful (And Not Very Scary)

    Probably my favourite pianobook instrument. One of my favourite string sounds of any library I own. Simply stunning.

  • Don't be scared, it's pure gentleness and calm

    The sound quality is absolutely amazing ! From the lowest notes to the highest, it will create a soft and very delicate atmosphere like the misty forests of Christoph Berg - Paraphrases

  • Absolutely stunning

    This sound is a go to for me, im using it in a track right now. Since this is a violin i can only assume its been stretched in kontakt to cover such a wide range but it sounds amazing in the low end. Just holding out long chords sounds so good. Theres alot of variation happening in the sound that keeps in interesting and the kind of scratchiness you hear sounds so natural and organic. I wish more high end string libraries would capture this. No complaints here, this is awesome

  • Scarily amazing

    This violin instrument is something that could exist inside LABS, or even in a Spitfire Originals series. It is so great that you have to see it yourself. Every time you press a single key, chills may go down your spine. It will fit perfectly in many scenarios. Unfortunately there are no customization options, and no GUI to at least drive your visual instincts a little bit. In my personal opinion, this is a must-have instrument.

  • I'm a little sad

    I'm kind of sad I didn't discover this library a few months ago. It has this excellent lonely, despondent sound that would have been perfect for a few projects I just finished. My loss, I guess. These samples aren't very clean, but they're dirty in the best kind of way. They have vibe and mojo. I don't really find this library is only good at scary stuff -- although it really does the scary/disturbed thing really well. It can be hopeful, poignant, and endearing too. It's really emotional and lovely all at the same time, and it's one of my favorite things on the PB site. Hope to hear more from this awesome samplist in the future!!
