One of my favorite unique jazz sounds is the electric violin. Any recommendations which sample lib is best for this? NOTE: Not looking for Stuff Smith, Hot Jazz sound-want that lean, Ponty/Urbaniak/Coltrane-like tone.
I imagine violin through ReValver or Pod, etc.
(and yeah I know Coltrane didn\'t play violin, but I saw him once in a club in Boston and the ancient Bogen PA was distorting so bad, the horn sounded like a violin!
Lee, that\'s probably a great idea-I tend to stay in the digital realm, but that\'s a time-honored technique for fattening the sound up.
What I\'m looking for are recommandations for which solo string library is most suitable for a contemporary jazz sound. Most string samples are very classical in nature, with that wide classical vibrato and attack that\'s quite different from the way someone like Jean-Luc Ponty or Michael Urbaniak approach the instrument.
With the nature of the sample library licensing as it is today, if I buy a sample set and it\'s totally unsuitable for my needs, I can\'t legally re-sell it (and they certainly won\'t take it back!) so I need suggestions.
What I want is a dry set, no vibrato but lots of character.
