Give your music an emotional punch

Expressive Violin is a virtual instrument for the free Kontakt Player sampler, focused on ultra realistic, emotional and expressive melodic true legatos.​ This is Kunst Audio's first installment of a series of expressive instruments.

Two types of true legato recorded

The goal was to capture how the violinist adapted vibrato and bowing speed to different note lengths in a melodic context.

  • Short: Immediate vibrato and faster bowing for in short notes

  • Long: Progressive vibrato and slower bowing for longer notes

Easily switch between the two legato types in real time by using Velocity or CC.


  • Dynamics: Go from soft to loud using your modwheel.

  • True Mid/Side & Stereo width: Recorded using Mid/Side technique. Mono compatible.

  • Bow noise: Control the amount of friction noise between the bow and the strings in real time.

  • Reverb: Recorded in a studio setting for a detailed sound. Just add a bit of reverb.


Lookahead is a smart control that adjusts the “speed response” of the instrument, meaning, if it will sound better on faster or slower melodies. Lower lookahead sounds better on faster melodies and has less latency. Higher lookahead sounds better on slower melodies but adds more latency.

Easily switch between a zero latency mode (Record mode) and a previously set Lookahead value (Playback mode).

Requires Kontakt Player 6.7.0+.
