Wow. So it does have real vibrato? I never paid attention to all that vibrato in the original composition until you made this demo of it, lol (no wonder I love that theme -and game :P). I read the description it has Vibrato Speed control, but the description doesn't really tell if it is real or not. Not that it matters, sounds great to me. Sigh, I will have to buy it now (again, even if it doesn't matter, could you let us know please if it's real or not?). Thanks so much.

P.S. Have you considered adding later Pizzicato? Not that I am that interested in that, but reading comments makes me wonder if doing it as an addon would be nice business (like get Pizzicato addon/update for 15/20 bucks, later down the road?). I mean, if you get a decent/good response on this instrument, maybe it would be worth it? Cheers.

Real. The vibrato speed (optional patch) is achieved with the Time Machine. Not only affects the vibrato but also the way it performs the whole note (slower vibrato values will make the note to last longer).

Got it! ;) Thanks so much for replying so I could tell if I should get it or not. May I ask for the midi file of Tax P? Maybe through a PM? That way I could learn more how this instrument works. I use mainly Studio One 4 Pro and sometimes Reaper (Cubase 10 Elements too).

Very nice music, CGR... but why does the cello player sit 60 feet in the back of the gym? :whistling: Joke aside: much too much reverb on him for my taste. The reverb is good though. What is it?

Haha - thanks Sid. Yeah, got carried away with the verb levels there I must admit, but hey, who doesn't like a nice deep reverb?
It's East West Spaces v1 - the Burbank Scoring Stage from memory. Spaces just works and always sounds natural to me (not surprising given the techniques and high-end equipment used to create the impulse responses)

Sounds pretty sweet. What piano did you use? Thanks :P
It's the EWQL Bosendorfer. The sketch is literally the first thing I played without looking at the keyboard - just assessing the tone and and playability and trying the keyswitch for the Staccato articulation. Added the piano after that.

And I knew why I loved the reverb. The Burbank big stage is my standart reverb on EVERYTHING. It makes things sound classical... woody and "chamber-y"... if you don´t "pump up the Bank, just pump it up!" :rofl:

I also liked how even if it's sitting in the back, the cello has very nice frequencies that still manages to kinda cut through the mix. And weirdly enough it doesn't sound thin. It seems this little instrument wins.

I was waiting for a not so expensive cello but a very good one and suddenly Fluffy come out with this one.

Cheers guys.

Great and very usable cello!

I've been in touch with support about a small issue I have. After loading the samples of the patches the time before the UI shows is 10sec in Kontakt 6.11 and instant in 5.8.1? @EvilDragon: Would you know if something is changed between Kontakt 5 and 6 that can influence this?

Hello Harry, we just did some tests and there's no difference on our osx systems by loading the library into Kontakt 5.8.1 or Kontakt 6.11. We will do more research, though. Are Kontakt 5 and 6 in the same place on your system? Same drive, etc..

Also I'd like to point out about this cello that the Vibrato Speed patch has the interesting feature of being fruit of a nice intuition that with the Time Machine we could make a nice controllable speed vibrato that is not emulated, but 100% real. While it is a very simple thing to implement (and consumes more ram than the basic patch), it's actually very cool to change the speed of the vibrato during the performance. It sounds way much realistic than any kind of emulation and it doesn't involve the use of crossfading which rarely sounds acceptable on solo strings (and no, phase alignment on strings doesn't work, since on string instruments, contrary to brass, the harmonics are all misaligned).

In definitive, we are quite proud of this little instrument :)
