Virtual Cello for classic & cinematic
Emotional Cello – never before could you play a virtual instrument at this level of expression.
Emotional Cello is a new kind of virtual instrument, created by Harmonic Subtones, a Munich based developer team, for Native Instrument's Kontakt 5 Player. Because of its powerful and yet exceptionally emotional sound, it unlocks previously unknown dimensions in the realms of sampling.
Emotional Cello is the perfect instrument for film-scoring, pop-production, song-writing, classic and modern avant-garde cello compositions. This unique virtual instrument shines by its impressive number of articulations, its direct and uncolored sound quality, unusual play techniques and innovative rebowing.
Emotional Cello was always recorded in a musical context to capture the natural bowing and the individual expressions of real instrumentalists. Thanks to intelligent scripting, 16 play-styles and true legato, this library offers immense versatile applications. Emotional Cello offers typical play-styles and articulations and also unusual techniques such as
- sul ponticello legato and
- flageolet legato,
- morbid sustain,
- ricochet and even
- renaissance sounds.
Harmonic Subtones calls the underlying philosophy of the Emotional Cello project „Contextual Sampling“. In search for perfect tone and highest inspiration, various string instruments were recorded over a period of no less than four years, realising that nothing can match the natural vibrato with its artistic facets performed by skilled musicians. Although any sample that includes recorded vibrato has obvious conceptual drawbacks, the sound of the performance itself will be a lot more inspirational than adding artificial vibrato. Based upon this insight, Harmonic Subtones went to extract the recordings with topmost musicality to forge a brilliantly sounding instrument.
The result is a library of unmatched authenticity.
To achieve conclusive arrangements, Emotional Cello offers a multitude of articulations. This way, the several phrases, turns, variations, pickups and endings can be used as real autonomous phrasings without ever being repetitive. To properly match the various sounds and articulations to your musical context, respective key-switches with appropriate naming, like delicate fast, vivid or moderate were added.
In addition, Emotional Cello offers unusual and unconventional articulations, you will not find in most competitive products. For example:
- the so called Spilegno, a harder edged Spiccato with bow-noise,
- Power 5th Spiccato,
- Plectrum Pizz,
- Rota Spiccato
- and a lot more.
Technical refinements were added, such as the rebowing-function which allows controlled directional change of the bow within a note using a key switch – highly useful for long sustains. Likewise, the vibrato-crossfade allows creating rhythmically perfect transitions from non-vibrato to vibrato-patches.
