Solo Violin by Artist, Taylor Davis

Artist Series - Taylor Davis is a solo violin library and a part of Cinesamples' Artist Series. Her Violin Legato library incorporates the same unique seamless legato recording and programming techniques as the Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato, Tina Guo vol 2, and CineStrings SOLO libraries. The legato allows for agile melodic passages and there are additional articulations including spiccato, marcato, tenuto, pizzicato, and open strings.

About the Instrument

  • Legato - The Legato articulation features Cinesamples' Seamless Legato performance found in all our solo string instruments. Want upward portamento?  Play a transition with a velocity over 110!  You'll get an upward portamento legato transition for minor 3rd intervals through the octave.  Additional programming allows for legato beyond the octave. 

  • Note Shaping - Selecting this adds a slower attack to notes with lower velocities for a more dynamic preformance.  

  • ∞ Bow - Unselected, this includes Taylor's natural bow changes on sustained notes.  Selected, it allows you to extend the bow length as needed.  Simply re-attack a note (quickly) when you need a bow change on the same note. 

  • Legato Speed - With AUTO on, legato speed is determined automatically by how fast you play.  You may deselect AUTO and set the Legato Speed manually. Higher settings allow for faster playing, and lower settings allow for slower playing and will reveal more of the recorded legato transition.  This setting is saved with the patch.

Mod Wheel - The Mod Wheel controls general dynamics. 

For more articulations, use the keyswitches from C1-F#1, or select them from the dropdown menu:

  • Legato
  • Sustains
  • Spiccato
  • Marcato - an elongated espressivo-style short
  • Pizz
  • Tenuto
  • Open Strings - sustains on the 4 open strings of the violin
  • Reverb - There are a variety of reverbs from which to choose including Taylor's custom reverb heard on all her YouTube videos.

  • Articulation Lock - There is an Articulation Lock feature next to the articulation pull-down menu.  When locked, keyswitches are removed and all other articulations are purged from RAM.
