Vertigo Viola Main GUI Screen

Vertigo Viola delivers full, resonant string sounds while being fragile and raw and capable of creating different textures and moods. It captures the organic, realistic dynamics of the viola and consists of 14 different articulations, plus 2 bowing effects. Like the other instruments in the Vertigo family, in Vertigo Viola, all the articulations can be mixed and matched to create and expand your vision of the viola. You can also individually pan and tune the intervals of each articulation and add effects intuitively.

The sound sources of Vertigo Viola cover a broad group of playing techniques: It includes 4 different solo violas in the Single Arco articulation, which can be played either solo or as a "viola quartet" with four different velocity layers. The instrument also contains a full and more "fragile" sound of the Viola da Gamba, which can add an even lower depth to your composition. Next, you will find one Harmonics articulation and 2 Sul Pont, which means that the viola was bowed closer to the bridge, emphasising the higher overtones and giving the viola a more metallic timbre. To add more dynamics, we also included articulations with different bowing motions and spiccatos, which can be played at different speeds. Finally, Vertigo Viola also comes with a frozen viola, a synthesised source and two bow effects.
