    Real-time Stradivari Performance Video - Thais Meditation by Massanet

    Stefano Lucato has prepared a real-time performance video with the Stradivari.

    The work performed is the Meditation de 'Thais' by Jules Massenet (1842-1912) which is regarded as one of the most beautiful pieces written for violin.

    This video shows the Stradivari Solo Violin being played in real-time and shows various playable articulations and techniques. Seperate articulation samples did not have to be searched nor stiched together. All in one performance and on one track.

    Here is the link to the video:

    The file is 8.3 MB and is in WMA format.

    Here is a Quicktime file:

    The file is about 10MB.

    Stefano was one of the developers of the Stradivari and is a rare talent. I am very proud to be associated with him.

    Enjoy Stefano's exquisite performance!

    That's really amazing. Great performance. And the vibrato, which I've been a bit leery about in some demos, sonds spot-on in that one as well.

    One small technical question, I guess he is playing live along with the sequencer.His last note sounds like a harmonic, but I didn't see him hit any key-switches.
    Was this automated in the sequencer.??
    Superb performance. For those of us that use a measure of imrovisation, as part of the compositional process.The real time playability of the Strad is a godsend.

    Very nice. ANother question.


    What CC is routed to his MW? Is that 'modulation' (CC#1) or Aftertouch?

    The vibrato sound more real in this example because it is not too deep or fast. Give some details how the vibrato depth and rate were set up.

    Thanks.
