ANR is privileged to help virtual instrument sampling company Embertone announce the availability of Joshua Bell Violin.
This creative collaboration with Grammy® Award-winning violin virtuoso Joshua Bell enables you to harness his celebrated sound as an advanced virtual violin for Native Instruments’ industry-standard KONTAKT Player platform.
Embertone set out to create a new standard in virtual solo strings, offering plenty of inspiration without sacrificing flexibility and with the unmistakable, iconic sound of Joshua Bell.
Watch Embertone’s sneak peek-style preview of Joshua Bell Violin here:
The instrument offers a huge variety of standard articulations, like sustains, pizzicatos, staccatos, spiccatos, and more, along with a number of sample sets you’re not likely to find anywhere else.
Joshua performed an incredible set of eerie harmonics transitions, and a set of “ultra-flautando”, a special technique he can harness from his 300+ year-old violin – a 1713 ‘Huberman’ Stradivari.
Though this VI is incredibly complex, featuring almost 20,000 individual samples, it’s designed to be simple to use.
Play it straight out of the box and it will inspire and surprise you!
