What started out as a 'what if...' experiment gone too far quickly became one of my favorite string libraries

The story

What does an instrument sound like when you don’t know how to play it properly? What if you don’t record it the ‘right’ way? What if you just go with your gut and record the results and see what happens?

Turns out, it’s insanely emotive, expressive, and beautiful.

Volitions is a collection of unique viola performances in custom layered performances, ensemble, and soloist forms with additional supplementary synthesizer layers for the layered performance patches.

  • Excellent and inspiring sound

    I really enjoyed using this instrument - the mandolin-like setting especially.

  • Exceptional textured strings

    This is a finely crafted instrument that could be easily considered a premium one. It features 6 different textures coming from stringed instruments, and all of them seem just perfect. The sampling is sublime, and it plays very well too, with a nice full 5-octave range. It comes with an extra "Sub" slider, that I absolutely loved, and you will also find full ADSR controls, along with nice Reverb and Delay settings.

    With a nice and easy to read design, along with the fact that this is a DecentSampler instrument, makes it absolutely perfect overall. Amazing job by Venus Theory!

  • Wonderful texture library for cinematic composition

    I am amazed by how good this sounds and how many creative ideas this sparks for me. I think this is one of the best texture library I have ever come across regarding strings, detaching from the conventional idea of a "well played" normal string library.

  • Something Special

    I started working with this and had to go and buy the full version. Worth every penny! Already starting composing with it. Every patch is useful.
