We have worked for over 2 years to develop a new kind of Virtual Instrument (including the Expansion 1) .
Instead of making another Virtual Instrument we have made a Virtual Performer™.
The easiest to use and the most inspiring VI we could ever make!
We present the Bohemian Violin
The first in our new Soul Capture series.
VIOLIN PERFORMER OVERVIEW
Our virtual performer is a new look at how to make virtual instruments. Instead of making "just" another virtual violin we have decided to sample the performer and their play styles. Due to the amount of types of samples recorded, we had to develop a virtual performer to handle the articulations, many types of legatos and bow selection for you as you play. This allows you to concentrate on playing and being inspired in a similar fashion you would be inspired by working with a real violinist. Virtual Performer has just been expanded with Expansion 1 delivering more varied types of performance, many new legato types, powerful Mood selection (Improv, Czardas and Emotive) allowing you to change the behavior of the violinist on the fly and as we go through the different expansion stages we will carry on our hunt for the ultimate VI tool. All you need is velocity sensitive keyboard, machine that fits minimum specs and a melody in mind.
BOW STYLES , LEGATOS, MOODS and FORCE KEYS
To make sure that the violin doesn’t sound static and doesn’t fall to the common traps of other virtual instruments we had to sample a varied versions of bowings, large selection of legatos and bow styles, to offer enough variety and option to the users. The expanded version with unparalleled sample pool of 32000+ on single microphone position means that the variety is so complex that we had to come up with something new again. The answer is Moods - changing complex behavior on the fly with a single keyswitch. For every note we have sampled over 32 variations including the on bow legatos in many dynamics, speeds and expression. Of course this still doesn’t account for 3 dynamics of Diminuendos going all the way to p- ppp with 2 round robin repetition and of course our short notes (Staccatos, Spiccatos and Pizzicatos) which have 4 repetitions per bow and per one of the 3 dynamic layers. Our Legato is fluent and with dynamic bowing and bow direction in the same spirit as the rest of the library, so instead of having simple transition crossfades we have captured the onbow legato in varied speeds and dynamics as well as expressions. Each of these articulations or moods can be forced on the performer using a assignable force key giving you the ultimate control over the performer should you choose to adjust his behavior.
THE FUTURE AND EXPANSIONS
When we began this journey to the performer’s soul we have realised that it can not be done all at once, so we have decided to do things in parts. You can already pick up the Bohemian Violin including Expansion 1 now with all the articulations necessary to write emotionally rich melodies or fast paced runs in Spiccato or on bow variations, but we want to go beyond that and still capture even more of the performer. We will be doing expansions for each of our Soul Capture libraries until we are satisfied that 99% of the performer and his sound has been sampled and made available to you in a controllable and intuitive manner, in the same spirit as the current version. To make sure that early adopters benefit from this setup all future expansions for each individual instrument in the Soul Capture Series are free.
BOHEMIAN VIOLIN EXPANSION PLAN
Most of what we have originally stated as a plan for EXP1 2 and 3 has already been done in the Expansion 1, but we know that we can go beyond. We can build on the moods and add more expression as we go forward, as we have many ideas which we still want to implement and we are also listening to ideas of our community, so we will make more moods, even more flexibility and further updates, so we can make sure the performer fit your requirements and deliver for any type of performance like a real violinist would. Our commitment remains to Quality, Unparalleled Realism and Ease of use.
