    VSL demo - Solo string II - con sordino - Shostakovich Quartet

    Here is a moverment of Shostakovich's string quartet #1. It uses the VSL Solo Strings II package (con sordino solo strings) exclusively. No EQ-- just a bit of Altiverb. They have quite a different sound from the unmuted strings in the Solo Strings I package. Comments welcome.

    Best,
    Jay

    Great job; however there are still limitations of the sample library which has nothing to do with your performance.

    ....or something "more Hollywood" like Guy Bacal. He sounds handsome. I can imagine being in a Casino with a tux on, sipping a martini, and saying... "Bacal......Guy Bacal." Seriously though, you two kill me and inspire all of us.

    Very nice job as usual Jay!

    Listening to this - I cant help thinking that the Kirk Hunter strings would also really excel at this sort of allegro material. His marcato and spiccato samples have so much bite and passion in them.

    Great movement by the way - love Shostakovich in mercurial mode.
