Universal Solo Violin Library
Hyperion Strings Solo Violins is a universal solo violin library built for everyone. It features two complete solo violin libraries in one, for life-like duets and rich layering options! Soundiron have recorded, engineered and programmed it with uncompromising care and precision to achieve a new benchmark in quality and playability. They set out to strike the ideal balance between polished refinement and natural humanism, giving you maximum creative flexibility, advanced utility and sonic realism. With each player, Soundiron recorded a complete range of detailed and deeply multi-sampled chromatic articulations, as well as an extensive collection of improvised melodic phrases in a range of styles, dynamics, tempos and keys.
This symphonic solo violin library is a robust musical production workhorse that will serve you well, whether you’re a working composer, student, producer, songwriter, teacher, arranger, band, sound designer, or are just curious about creating your own music. It’s optimized for instant gratification, from the moment you load it up. Its intuitive modular design and content symmetry make it easy to use for the beginner. Yet its robust articulation list, dynamic capabilities, time-saving articulation management tools, deeply customizable acoustics and professional feature set make it exceptionally powerful in the hands of the seasoned composer. Hyperion Strings Solo Violins has an intimate and robust sound unlike any other. It has a powerful tone and expressive dynamic range that can be shaped to fit any genre or style. Soundiron have equipped the interface with plenty of spatialization, environment simulation and positioning controls and options to let you dial in the sound and character you need.
This library includes both 1st and 2nd violins with Master, Phrase, and True Legato presets for each violin. The Master presets include a wide selection of articulations, each with their own range of customizable real-time performance options, key-switch and mapping options and performance tools. These master presets allow you to blend and switch effortlessly between sustains, a variety of shorts and naturally dynamic tempo-based expressions.
The Sustain articulations give you a plethora of sustain types with vibrato of different speeds and intensity, most recorded naturally in both piano and forte dynamics. Also included is an entire section of sordino articulations, with sustains, expressions, and shorts.
The Short articulations include staccatos, spiccatos, pizzicatos, colle, col legno, bartok pizzicato, and more! Each short articulation provides 4 round-robin variations per note, making it easy to humanize your arrangements and find the perfect emotive expression for any musical moment.
The Expressions allow real-time dynamically-aware release sample triggering, tempo-synching and time-stretching. We’ve included Crescendo, Decrescendo, Sforzando, and Swell articulations. When combined with the Offset and Attack controls, you can carve out just about any dynamic shape you could ever need.
The phrase presets feature a massive collection of live phrases, organized intuitively by root tempo and mood. Tempo-synching, time-stretching, and pitch transposition give you complete freedom to customize. You can also shape, blend and sequence phrases with our phrase-legato, step sequencer, speed-control, and live waveform editing.
