    I used Adagio cellos on my last New Age album alongside my real violinist. Most people thought I had also used a real cellist. :2thumbs:

    I also love Adagio's keyswitch endings for the legato. Takes a bit of extra work to put those in there but makes a big difference to me. Having an actual performed diminuendo vs just moving the mod wheel down is a great detail.

    Here is a piece that the cello begins around 2:40, but it's pretty simple and the beautiful live violinist gets all the ear attention. :)

    I use Adagio as a layer for my CS2. For example its sustains at the lowest dynamics sound sooo gorgerous, detailed and lively and I love layering different types of shorts, like the on bow spiccato and tapped spiccato, with CS2 shorts to give them specific flavour, very effective.

    I like the tone of the Adagio Viola too, it’s has the woody kind of viola sound I like (along with the Soaring Strings and Afflatus violas and maybe some others).

    To me it sounds much more realistic.

    But then I love the sound of a rugged string instrument as a rule.

    You guys are really selling me this library ...
    Does anyone know whether the anthology viola has the same quality as the adagio or not ??

    Which patch are you referring about the violas? Divisi, Ensemble, solo?

    Quick, start a thread about the cellos so 8Dio can flash sale them too. You have that power. :cool:
