Love it. The solo violin sounds very good, which is near impossible to achieve with sample libraries. Amazing job.

A great demo of a top notch sample lib. I do try to make is work, but still struggling. Any tips and tricks to recommend regarding dynamics and playing?

Great work

Hi moma,
Thank you for your kind words, good new i'm not much of a technicien when it comes to libraries like this, and i dont use any particular playing tricks.
As you know the software automatically adapts to your playing. The important thing is to "think violin" and play phrases à violonist could play. We can't play any thing on these libraries and make it sound like real strings, but we slowly reach real strings technics.

Yes, thats the way to go I guess, still its a tough challenge to handle the dynamics in JB. There is a new update out now that Im about to get, see what that can bring:)

Best to you

Sounds almost like a real violin, but such realistic samples makes the listener demand even more realistic sound.

What I miss is some soft-medium vibrato on the legato (long notes). If you can handle that, I think it would sound really nice.

Speaking as someone who's been struggling to get to grips with the Spitfire Solo Strings "Total Performance" patch all week, this is incredible.

@Gerald this is really nice, beautiful harmonies, a very french feeling.

On production, a favorite topic: how to cram the most out of CSS. I've used it a lot, and am intrigued regarding what processing and reverb - if any - you've used here.

Even Joshua Bell would be impressed! A joy to listen to! I love the expressiveness and clarity I can get from my VSL solo violin, but next time this one is on sale, my fingers will be all the more itchy. Keep doing what you're doing!
