Viola Sample Pack

Driven by passion, commitment, and excitement, towards the generous and genuine exercise of philantropy throughout sound design, this library features an ableton instrument consisting of a single patch, where the c string of the viola of tiago morais morgado (improviser, composer, and laptoper born in Portugal), is sampled and layered with ableton synth presets and so on so forth

The story

How can a sampled instrument designed with ableton live suits the needs of contributing towards layering strings, in a style close to bands and groups idolatrized by people in the BBC Radio 6 (such as Mary Anne Hobbs), in example, Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, King Crimson Dave Cross, Velvet Underground’s John Cale, Yann Tiersen, and many others?

Suiting a Viola Sampled with a state of the art microphone manufactured by Jonas Gruska (Institute of Sonology Alumni), namely Lom Label’s Uzi Pro Microphone, decently plugged into a Focusrite Solo soundcard, and Sampled and Mangled altogether in Ableton Live

Beautiful Layers, with nice reverb, and some synths, with different bowed articulations, sampled pizzicare, and reverb and synths.

Genuinely and Generously Yours

  • Dynamics based on one sample

    This is a viola instrument that comes with different dynamic layers, all based on one single note (C). The texture is quite nice, but you need to be careful with it, since you might be able to hear some weird background noises, such as breathing near the microphone.
