Emotional Cello is a new kind of virtual instrument, created by Harmonic Subtones, a Munich based developer team, to be used with Native Instrument's Kontakt 5 Player. Because of its powerful and simultaneously exceptional emotional sound, it opens up previously unknown verbal dimensions for the work with samples.
Emotional Cello is the perfect instrument for film-scoring, pop-production, song-writing, classic and modern avant-garde cello compositions. This unique virtual instrument shines by its impressive number of articulations, its direct uncolored sound quality, unusual play techniques and innovative rebowing.
Emotional Cello has been continuously recorded in a musical context to capture the natural bowing and the individual expressions of real instrumentalists. Thanks to intelligent scripting, 16 play-styles and true legato, this library offers immense versatile possible applications. Emotional Cello offers all typical play-styles and articulations as well as unusual techniques.
Harmonic Subtones calls the underlying philosophy of the Emotional Cello project "Contextual Sampling". In search for perfect tone and highest inspiration, various string instruments have been recorded over a period of no less than four years. Conclusion was that nothing can match the natural vibrato with its artistic facets performed by skilled musicians. Although, any sample with an included recorded vibrato has obvious conceptual drawbacks, the sound of the performance itself will be a lot more inspirational than adding artificial vibrato. Based upon this insight, Harmonic Subtones went to extract the recordings with topmost musicality to forge a brilliant sounding instrument. The result is a library of unmatched authenticity.
To achieve conclusive arrangements. Emotional Cello offers a multitude of articulations. This way, the several phrases, turns, variations, pickups and endings can be used as real autonomous phrasings without the need of ever being repeated. To be able to correctly use the various tones and articulations in a musical context, the corresponding key switches have been appropriately titled with names such as Delicate fast, Vivid or Moderate.
