    The Alder Violin
    A solo violin library featuring expressive playing techniques. Performed by American violinist Jenavieve Vaga (after a chance meeting under a giant blue whale).

    Articulations: expressive | harmonic brush | harmonic sustains | low tide | trill maj | trill min

    On my first trip to New York, I was invited to a performance at the Museum of Natural History, knowing nothing of the event. It turned out to be a group meditation held underneath a giant blue whale hanging in the 'whale room', quite an impressive setting. Part of the guided meditation included musicians weaving in and out of the audience with subdued and reflective sounds enticing the listener to delve deeper into a meditative state. Having quite the opposite effect, one of the performers caught my ear, the violin performance was incredible. After the show I introduced myself, and it turned out Jenavieve was not just part of the show, she was the music director. She'd recently returned from some London recording sessions and was interested in the 'Seven Days' fundraiser concept for Hometree. So we grabbed some drinks and a burrito and discussed.

    In the spirit of the Seven Days libraries, we recorded a select few articulations distilling a particular sound, a particular 'voice'. Ones that offer up something inspiring, musical and unique. The result is the Alder Violin.​

    Loving these and will probably end up buying them all. Curious whether I can use the license on two machines? (I downloaded the trumpet to my laptop already but would like to be able to download and install on my desktop, too.)

    It may be silly to praise this over and over but it feels like going back to pure sampling nature on its own. Terrific job.

    Thank you Wally. The license covers use on 2 machines. Thank you for checking.

    Ah, thank you! Much appreciated and certainly motivating.

    And another thank you - really do appreciate the kind feedback.

    Is this one different from the one that was available before or is it the same one?

    This is the same one as available before; the only one out of the six not specifically created for the Seven Days fundraiser. It fits the ethos of the collection really well and offers people a chance to pick it up at the cheapest it'll ever be (and some tree's will be planted)!

    There's a small update coming for John's Guitar and that'll include a main patch with the Seven Days interface, but not for a little while.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I already have it, which is why I asked. Looking forward to the last little gem in this series.

    The Alder Cello
    Performed by friend and cellist Lidia Alonso and recorded by Adaq Khan in Soho, London. Focusing on the delicate, the soft and the evocative. Inspired in part by the ocean and its many moods (bristeacha, low tide, swells, seagulls), the surfer community that support the Hometree project, and their nomadic and humble lifestyle. The Alder Cello contains some unique and inspiring articulations which coupled with the stacked reverb and delay options in the 'Seven Says GUI' allows for further exploration of ethereal and experimental cello textures.

    Articulations: sustains | harmonic sustains | delicate tremolo | low tide | bristeacha | Swell NV | Swell Vib | Seagulls

    I was under the impression the cello would have legato (dont know where i got that from though). That is a shame. Can't complain for £10 though :P. Sounds lovely.

    Was there not a discussion in another thread where you guys were doing a legato cello?

    Violin and cello are a bit Olafur Arnalds-y. Really nice velvety textures

    Love these delicate strings... maybe Waverunner will consider expanding upon these to fill a much needed hole.

    Cello legato actually was mentioned in this thread, along with detache, portamento, gliss, and rebowing. All this suggests that there really might be more to come for The Alder Cello. Didn't legato eventually come for Two French Horns as an upgrade/update?

    Wow, this cello is really lovely.
    So much character. Very inspiring to use.
