    Follow up - Dennis at Bolder (in Boulder) has gone above and beyond expected call of duty to provide support. The solution is great and the instrument is first class, and great support. Great work!!

    Between 120-150bpm
    This is good enough to run 2 instances and have 2 different PBend amounts.
    I do this with CHein Solo Violin and Leap Motion to pull off Jean Luc Ponty solos.

    This Fiddle can easily do that but even go further doing Zydeco and Cajun Fiddling.
    It’s tone is captured perfectly.

    Think I’ll be getting this.
    Always liked Bolders instrument choices and quality.

    Sweet

    Thanks Jerry ... I'm happy to help. I have always tried to treat my customers like I would a friend. Many people over the years have told me "that's no way to run a business" - I disagree.

    Bo Clausen and I are currently working on version 2 of the fiddle! library . It will have additional samples featuring numerous ornaments as well as a set of Slow-Bow sustain samples.

    Will there be a charge for the V2 update? That has yet to be determined. But one thing I can say - it will either be free for current fiddle! owners, or a very minimal upgrade cost.

    Shooting for early December 2018.

    Thank you!

    Great walk-through video! Wish all vendors would provide such a detailed look at their products. Very interested in this and will probably be picking up at some time.

    Also looking forward to it. Will it be a paid upgrade? If so, what will be the upgrade price?

    Yes - if you buy it today you will get the update to version 2 of fiddle! for free. Current owners of fiddle! will also be able to update to version 2 at no charge. :)

    Slightly off topic but after looking at the Fiddle on the website I checked out the Bolder Sounds Guitarron and watched the walkthrough. Wow - really impressed with both the sound and programming. This one has flown under the radar!

    Thanks for the mention of the Guitarron library. It is one of my favorite sample libraries as well as one of my favorite instruments. A customer once told me it was boring and it was the tofu of the bass world. I told him to play it in octaves ... he tried and said "wow - I never thought I'd play a bass instrument in octaves, I thought it would get the mix too muddy." For some reason it does not muck things up.

    That is how Mariachi players always play the Guitarron. Listen to Jackson Browne's "Linda Paloma" from the Pretender album. Talk about a lush, gorgeous, subtle and fat bass part!

    I never realised how widely the Guitarron has been used in pop music. Your 'Linda Paloma' bass sound description is spot on. The Guitarron has a unique character of tone & presence which sits so well with other instruments. Really happy to have found this!

    This is just plain cool. Before I bought the Bolder Sounds fiddle!, I thought about another dev's fiddle, and also thought about waiting for another yet to be released fiddle, and now I'm doubly glad I made the decision I did.

    Thank you.

    It will not be cheaper than it is now (at least in the near future), and on the release date (December 15th) it will go up $10 in price. So, I would suggest getting it before the 15th.

    Will there be a Christmas sale or not? Only Santa knows.

    Here is a demo I worked on this afternoon using fiddle! V2 - "The Kiss" by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman from The Last Of The Mohicans.

    Featuring rolls, waterfalls, hammers, mordents and flick ornaments.

    Can’t wait to try these out. These embellishments make all the difference for a traditional feel, particularly for Celtic tunes. Sounding really great Dennis!
