    Really good virtual violin - will we ever see it?

    Hey all,

    I was listening to a lot of Wieniawski the other day and I couldn't help but think... even a small segment of the violin playing would be extremely difficult to do with all our sample libraries and technology.

    Do you think articulations and expressive playing like this:

    ..could ever come close to being recreated with software? I have high hopes for Sample-Modeling to create some nice stuff (as their Trumpet is wonderful) but don't you think it would be amazing if someone could really raise the bar so that we could compose music approaching the amazing sounds in music like Wieniawski's? At the moment it's near impossible to even make fake-sounding versions of these compositions.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks! I've been practicing for years.

    Now try to do that performance with a sample library. You can't really emulate the raw emotion in my playing, and all those articulations!

    The guys behind "The Trumpet"...won't they have new instruments up their sleeves?:P...and who else is doing sample modeling? We need a whole orchestra! hehe
