    Loved the sound and approach and couldn't resist the intro pricing, even if it's just legato sustains. Not quite sure what I'll do with it but hopefully this will motivate Jasper to produce more goodies. Waiting to see what will come next. Will try it in a bit.

    Edit: Ok, played with it for a while. It's decent, it adds some nice movement and drama. A bit quirky to program, lag can be a bit problematic but workable. Could probably use a bit wider dynamics, you'll prob need a filter for very low dynamics and probably some EQ or volume ride for pretty high dynamics (mic volumes too). The releases seem to conflict with the attacks at some points for some reason. A fade to silence would be a nice addition. Can work solo for calmer pieces, for others it's probably better for layering (or at least with the rest of the sections). It's likely I'll complete the bundle, probably on some sale. Still curious for the next releases though; keep 'em coming.

    Here's some messing around in some more examples (they're the longer notes; violins B only, in a few different settings):

    @Jasper Blunk , I think you mentioned in a another thread that the violas were next. Any ideas even if rough as to when? Need to make some decisions, and would like to wait if possible. Thanks!!!

    Just thought I’d mention I tried Con Moto Violins B in Logic with Kontakt 5 running inside Komplete Kontrol (on a 2017 iMac) and I have had no CPU spike issues at all.

    Now that folks have had the violins for a while and the last day of the intro price is tomorrow, whats the verdict? Any thoughts, pros, cons?

    In my opinion there are no Cons. It is an amazing library. Jasper's libraries have a kind of musicality there I rarely find anywhere else. It is beautiful and raw. And the price is right. One amazing patch with low footprint, and amazing sound quality.

    I only wish there was maybe a patch for slower/smother passages. This patch is vibrant and expressive. but it'be nice to have a a patch for tailored to softer passages. But that may be a future release.

    yes it plays very well fast passages. It does that amazingly well. And it also plays very well slow passages. You just have to start the notes before the beat because of the delay of the legato.

    I'd like to see a future release focused on more lyrical softer, slower passages. Perhaps a PP to MP patch.

    Constaneum, here is a quick passage I improvised live without putting any thought to it, as I am busy working on project. No editing whatsoever. No preparation. No processing, except for the master hall reverb. I think it does well on fast passages. It is not a library intended to play only runs per say, but it does "speak" pretty fast, and even runs kind of work. But the strength of the library is doing emotive and passionate passages that can feature quite fast notes. What do you think?
