The Stradivari

This historical masterpiece was created in c.1727 by the legendary Italian luthier Antonio Stradivari and is considered to be a typical example of his work in the late 1720s. It now stands in the Museo del Violino after it’s last owner, violinist and composer Remo Lauricella expressed his will to return the violin to its place of origin in the town of Cremona, Italy.

Human Vibrato

The e-instruments innovation of performance captured vibrato takes the recording of a professional violinist’s vibrato technique, then reapplies the behavior of the vibrato parameters to the sample, allowing you to automate or control in real-time, resulting in full and realistic control for an expressive and natural sound.


Multiple Articulations

The numerous articulations recorded include long, short, expressive, dynamic, and special articulations, all with up to three legato transitions. The adaptive Virtuoso articulation intelligently combines multiple articulations in real-time using the velocity, note, and pitch bend information sent from your MIDI controller performance.

True Solo Violin

Every single note of the Stradivarius violin has been painstakingly sampled at different dynamics and phase-aligned in stereo across multiple microphones. This ensures that all dynamic transitions are free from any phasing artifacts and dynamic changes over long legato transitions, from the softest pianissimo to the most forceful fortissimo, are indistinguishable from that of a real violin.


Shape Your Sound

Two Kontakt instruments provide a choice between Multi-Mic and Stereo. The Multi-Mic option provides a mixer within the UI offering control over the “close”, “mid” and “far” audio fields. The Stereo offers a stereo mixdown of all three. This gives the player flexibility and customization over the sound when mixing, or a more CPU and RAM efficient instrument for maximizing workflow when composing.

CRE Choose Your Timbre

Choose Your Timbre

The “Smart” position algorithm will select the fingerboard position that a professional violinist would most likely choose to play a musical phrase. The “Low String” and “High String” options allow you to determine the timbre you wish to get from the violin, forcing a lower or higher string to be played. The lower string will result in a more mellow timbre, whereas forcing a high string will create a brighter, clearer timbre.
