Hi jieff, I remember you said you voted for it, so there must be something in there you really like - in spite of the reservations you have. Thanks for useful info.
I've seen many people expect a LOT from virtual instruments, like achieving stunning results in a single pass....
Hmmm... if an instrument contain several notes you avoid because they almost sound as if they come from another instrument, that sounds kind of major to me. (The same goes for being disappointed with all but 4 articulations – which makes me wonder what exactly it is it that your Nocturne violin can do which your Bohemian cannot...)It's still my favorite (now along with the Bohemian Violin). But those are minor things that bug me a little [...]
Sorry, I must have missed that post. The products which weren't mentioned in the "overview thread" wasn't included, so please vote for these other libraries my posting a message instead, and as mentioned earlier: I had this 10 vote limit, so I couldn't include more than that anyway. But this thread/poll is only about dedicated solo violin VIs - Kirk Hunter and Signor Paganini is mentioned in the other thread/poll which is about string quartet/first chair products, here:Not in the poll, but at least worthy of discussion: Embertone Friedlander violin, EW Hollywood Solo Violin, and Kirk Hunter Spotlight Strings solo violin.
And while it is a one trick pony, the Signor Paganini Solo Violin does the fast stuff brilliantly and is a bargain.
I think poll-maker.com may be a free service, so anyone want who wants to create a new poll with both all the products from the two current polls and those others who have been mentioned in the threads could be included... And I agree that EW Gypsy should be in there, it really has something to it's sound that the others don't. Maybe one even should include some of the products which aren't released yet, but which we know is being worked on (like eg Emotional Violin)?Still no EW Gypsy. I'll pass.
I've already gotten files with the Bohemian, Cinestrings Solo Violin, Embertone Friedlander and Trio Broz Solo Violin. Thanks a lot. Maybe I can, post these to this thread, if I get permission. Anyone who wants to give OT Nocturne a try? It should work well in theory, because the MIDI file I want to try out is the file behind this Berlin Strings test track:Btw, if someone here needs to waste 10 minutes, I could PM them a one track MIDI file which would be great to hear with any of the solo/FC instruments. I'll gladly return the favour in one way or the other.
Hi! I didn't actually leave it out of the poll, this poll is about "solo (etc) violins that can be bought as a separate products". There's also a poll here, about "first chairs"/quartets etc: http://vi-control.net/community/thr...ir-libraries-you-are-really-happy-with.54967/ VSL Solo Strings are in that poll.VSL Solo Violin.
However, you left it out from the poll...
And here are the files. This isn't a "serious" comparison, for instance because stuff like portamento and slow/fast attacks aren't at all identical between the files. But still - they give an impression of the differences, in terms of the basic sound of each of these four violins has.I've already gotten files with the Bohemian, Cinestrings Solo Violin, Embertone Friedlander and Trio Broz Solo Violin.

This definitely sounds like a good violin, and (IMO: unlike some of the other libraries) the tone somehow reflects some of the passion a real violin sound has at best.Out of the libraries I own, VSL solo strings is my favorite. Here is (an overly compressed) cue I did years ago featuring VSL solo violin
