    So, I have Composer Cloud, and I find myself wanting to experiment with using more solo violin, but I haven't been able to get particularly great results out of the Hollywood Solo Violin. The only other solo string instrument I have really used is the Tina Guo Cello and that seems to be pretty much perfect out of the box. Should I just keep experimenting with the Hollywood Violin, or is there another violin somewhere in Composer Cloud that would be better?

    There is the older EW solo violin and the mucho espressivo violin in Gypsy. I'm not sure EW is offering the older violin any more at least it's not on their site but I got it with CC a few years back.

    Not used Solo Violin but I've got some great results out of the one in Gypsy over the years.

    Try the flautando long patch. Is pretty exquisite.

    I still use Gypsy, just because I like the sound. I own the EW Solo Violin but I only ever used the old one...now I'm wondering if I should update.

    The answer is no and no

    I own Emotional Violin and have used Joshua Bell Violin and I have EW CC plus.
    You could give me a 1000 situations to choose a solo violin and the times I would choose EWHW solo violin would be 0.
    Like someone else said....even the Gypsy one is better....

    Emotional Violin does sound rad... trying not to spend anymore money right now though, considering I just got Albion 2 and Tina Guo within the last few weeks. So tempting though...

    Yep. The uninstall was pretty seamless and quick. The very definition of a good result.

    Yea I used the solo violin once and quickly went and bought the Josh Bell version so that I could erase the sound of EWs violin from my mind.

    Though I'm pretty damn crazy about the Hein violin, as a happy owner of Emotional Cello I can't help but be interested in EV.

    I got the EV Cello at the APD sale awhile back and it took everything in me to not 'borrow' for the EV Violin. I saved up and got the EV less than a week ago....and just love it.

    Try the solo violins from EW Symphonic Orchestra, or Gypsy.
