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, don't be scared

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

    This is a great sound. I use it all of the time tuned down an octave or two. At normal register it is pretty harsh scary and rough, but the addition of warmth makes it one of the most beautiful sounds here.

  • 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.

  • 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
