Will it create a new generation of virtual Paganinis? Dave Stewart The DVD given away with SOS August 2005 featured an intriguing video clip of a man producing an amazingly lifelike and expressive solo violin performance from a bog-standard MIDI keyboard. Even allowing for the player's tasty keyboard technique, the soaring, emotive legato phrasing, dynamic response, swelling vibrato, and expressive portamento slides of the instrument were reproduced so accurately that it was hard to believe that some kind of sorcery was not involved. The man in the clip was Stefano Lucato, filmed playing Gary Garritan's Stradivari Solo Violin instrument live at the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2005 trade fair. When it comes to sampling orchestral instruments, Gary Garritan has a long and distinguished track record.

Combine solo and duo strings to create trios, quartets, or quintets. Layer these elements with the full string sections for even more texture and nuance.

Dedicated hardware samplers from the likes of Roland, Yamaha, Kurzweil, EMU and Akai once ruled the studio and stage and sample libraries were designed around limitations of the hardware - memory and processor speed being the chief constraints.

So I dusted off my cello and prepared for the worst. I wasn’t extremely careful because I wasn’t expecting it to work – but it worked out not too bad for a quick job! I have zero programming skills so just be aware that it is very primitive and has limited use (although it is beginning to be far more useful with the help of members of this forum!) I’ve also kept it dry so I suggest you soak it in your favourite reverb (even before playing it if possible LOL). Zero-G ANIMATO String & Flute FX.
