Hello VI-C'ers!!

We're proud to announce the official Cyber Monday release of our Joshua Bell Violin Essential! It lived for a few days over at APD, and now is officially nestled into the Embertone website :)


Joshua Bell Violin Essential contains all the core articulations from the 'full' product, with the same legendary sound of Joshua Bell playing on his priceless Stradivarius. The concept behind 'Essential' is that it sounds wonderful, realistic, and expressive from the moment you open it up. No esoteric articulations, and much less tweaking and configuring here. Our hope is that you can simply play your melody line, and enjoy the sound of Joshua Bell in YOUR music!

Love,

Alex and Jonathan

Didn't realise you were bringing it over to your site as I bought this at midnight last night in hope the hiccups had been sorted. ;) Looking forward to downloading today and enjoying it. I watched the videos and have never heard a bad thing about JBell Violin, fab release!

It looks like a nice release. I appreciate the Embertone team providing a budget version of their flagship solo violin. I wonder though how Staccato wasn't included as an essential articulation.

The spiccatos are more versatile - they "speak" with a faster response, have a nice length. They will give the broad spectrum of users more utility! The JBell staccatos are a bit longer, and useful, but in slightly more specialized circumstances.

Fair enough. The spiccatos do sound lovely.

Is it possible to upgrade to the full version from Essential? I bought the essential version and I'm kicking my self for not buy the full version. It's so good!

They posted here in one of the threads that you can upgrade to the full version for $90 ($10 more to keep the Essential license in addition to the full JB Violin license). You might have to email them about it, though. The last time I checked, the website wasn't set up to handle the upgrade yet.

Hello,

I only just bought the full JBV less than 3 days ago.

I’m wondering if there is any discount for someone who’s recently bought the full version, or if there is any benefit to me getting Essential?

Hey there,

The full version has every feature of Essential, and all the extra articulations, samples, Tone/color Control, and Control Preset configuration customizability. No benefit to picking up Essential IMO.

We don’t have any discounts currently setup for full owners who would consider picking up the JBVEss. Though if you’re wanting to, now would be the time! It’s 40% off and won’t be going back to that levelof discount for a long time.

thanks!

Happy Friday! A reminder that if you're on the fence about JBVEss, today is a good day to make a decision on it!

Actually, we're having some minor update issues. Which means that it's on for just a few more hours. In case anyone is still interested. I'll be troubleshooting and refreshing it in the AM!!
