Stradi Strings Soaked

A one hundred year old violin passed through various effects....

The story

I acquired my great-grandmother’s childhood violin a few years ago and have always been enamored with it. For being over 100 years old, it is still structurally sound and plays quite well, the player is the problem. I wanted to do something along the lines of what Spitfire does with evolutions. These longs pass through the Strymon Volante and Big Sky while I am tampering with the wear, mechanics, and time with the delay pedal. The affect is somewhat of a tape flutter. The mod wheel controls the drive of distortion.

  • Cant go wrong with this!

    Similar to David's other pad library the original sound source has been distorted and warped into a brilliant textural sound. This one works nicely as a pad too and there's no nasty buildup in volume. The filter controls and MW are a welcome addition too. Some notes give you a colourful overtone which can really add something to the way this thing plays. Cool stuff!

  • Quite versatile!

    The instrument greets you with a nice wallpaper that hosts just two knobs for Cutoff and Resonance. These two knobs along with the modwheel will make the smooth default texture sound like a nightmare. I can see this doing incredibely well as an atmospheric riser in cinematic soundscapes.

  • Simple but affective strings wash

    Slow attack strings with a nice shiny timbre but nothing too special going on here. Could certainly be used as a bed for other sounds.
