    In December 2018, I built a fully playable cello out of an old silverware box. Now you can own the sounds of this unique instrument in a feature-packed Kontakt library. Introductory price: $20!

    Buy here: https://www.decentsamples.com/product/box-cello-kontakt/

    Features:
    • Three articulations: sustain (both velocity and modwheel), spiccato and pizzicato
    • Up to 8 round robins per note, 2 velocity layers for a maximum total of 16 different samples per note!
    • ADSR controls on all patches (except spiccato which doesn't really need it)
    • EQ controls on all patches
    • Recorded with three different mics (including a piezo contact mic). Mic levels are controllable after the fact to give maximum sonic flexibility
    • Three experimental patches: Texture I, Open Strings, Open Strings (Ensemble)
    • Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.3.1 or later.
    • Library size: 1.03GB (each articulation is separate patch so you can easily get rid of articulations you don't need if you find yourself short on disk space)

    Finally! A solo string, silver box instrument instead of the usual full sections... about damn time... and it sounds good.

    That is very cool, and exactly the sort of library that causes me to open my wallet.

    Thanks!

    Very unique sound! And I like your "Equilibrium" piece quite a lot! And thanks for that informative vid on making the (free!) Nagoya Harp lib.

    It's my understanding it has been added. You can download the updated NKI at the website, I think.

    Oh no looks like I missed the intro price. Oh well, $30 isn't heavy relatively speaking.

    That's odd, last night it said $30, now it's $20. :)

    Let's get it! Wait a minute. I am cello-VSTi ignorant. Enlighten me.

    What does this do that the basic cello in the full version of Kontakt does not?
