A while ago I asked about interest in a violimba sample library, and various people expressed concern that the violimba is such a flexible instrument that it would be impossible to sample, as such. Having now played with my violimba for a while I think they're quite right - doing anything consistent enough to organise as an instrument is next to impossible.
On the other hand it is a superb tool for creating textural beds. I just wanted to gauge interest in a possible library of such textures. Say I was to create a dvd with as many different beds as I can fit on it, is there anyone who would be willing to pay a small fee for it.
I've posted an MP3 of a typical texture - this one was created using a violin bow and cello bow simultaneously, and feeding the pickup from the violimba into my PodXT.
Let me know if you'd be interested.
