    Solo Double Bass Demo

    Well, it\'s all done finally! Everyone who has the set will automatically get the new .gig files. (They load into Halion and Kontakt too.)

    Here are a couple demos:
    1) Double Bass. I used the vibrato samples for the sustains, but the set comes with non vibrato programmed so you can fade in the vibrato as you choose as well. Notice that at the beginning of the demo, during the pizzicato section, you can hear finger noises. This is actually intentional. The finger noises are programmed in. However, you can leave them out as well. I just thought it would be a good idea to add realism this way.

    2) The Romantic Violin. This is a different violin than comes with the current set of solo strings. I may or may not include it depending on how well it works with the rest of the set, and if it gets good reviews from my beta people. Basically, it\'s just an afterthought. Below is a quick demo of it at any rate.

    Kirk,

    Sorry, but the best , read most convincing, part of the demo were the staccato and the tremolo samples.
    I\'m not sure about the sustained with immediate vibrato. Did you also sample the bass with a delayed vibrato gently swelling? I would like to keyswitch between non-vibrato, delayed vibrato, full immediate vibrato. This is very important for all the instruments of the library to get the emotion right. If I can have my way, I want soft vibrato and strong vibrato.

    Just my greedy thoughts,


    ------------

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Yes, there are non-vibrato samples as well, and you can fade them in via the mod wheel or by keyswitching. I\'ve posted the complete instrument list above.
