powerful and simultaneously exceptional emotional cello sounds

Emotional Cello is a new kind of virtual instrument, created by Harmonic Subtones, a Munich based developer team, to be used with Native Instrument´s Kontakt 5 Player. Because of its powerful and simultaneously exceptional emotional sound, it opens up previously unknown verbal dimensions for the work with samples.

Emotional Cello is the perfect instrument for film-scoring, pop-production, song-writing, classic and modern avant-garde cello compositions. This unique virtual instrument shines by its impressive number of articulations, its direct uncolored sound quality, unusual play techniques and innovative rebowing.

Emotional Cello has been continuously recorded in a musical context to capture the natural bowing and the individual expressions of real instrumentalists. Thanks to intelligent scripting, 16 play-styles and true legato, this library offers immense versatile possible applications. Emotional Cello offers all typical play-styles and articulations as well as unusual techniques such as

  • sul ponticello legato and
  • flageolet legato,
  • morbid sustain,
  • ricochet and even
  • renaissance sounds.

Content

Harmonic Subtones calls the underlying philosophy of the Emotional Cello project „Contextual Sampling“. In search for perfect tone and highest inspiration, various string instruments have been recorded over a period of no less than four years. Conclusion was that nothing can match the natural vibrato with its artistic facets performed by skilled musicians. Although, any sample with an included recorded vibrato has obvious conceptual drawbacks, the sound of the performance itself will be a lot more inspirational than adding artificial vibrato. Based upon this insight, Harmonic Subtones went to extract the recordings with topmost musicality to forge a brilliant sounding instrument.
The result is a library of unmatched authenticity.

To achieve conclusive arrangements. Emotional Cello offers a multitude of articulations. This way, the several phrases, turns, variations, pickups and endings can be used as real autonomous phrasings without the need of ever being repeated. To be able to correctly use the various tones and articulations in a musical context, the corresponding key switches have been appropriately titled with names such as Delicate fast, Vivid or Moderate.

In addition, Emotional Cello also offers unusual and unconventional articulations, almost never to be found in competitive products. For example, the library offers

  • the so called Spilegno, a harder edged Spiccato with bow-noise,
  • Power 5th Spiccato,
  • Plectrum Pizz,
  • Rota Spiccato
  • and a lot more.

Added are technical refinements, such as the rebowing-function which allows controlled directional change of the bow within a note using a key switch – uttermost useful with long sustains. Likewise, the vibrato-crossfade allows creating rhythmically perfect transitions from non-vibrato to vibrato-patches.

Recording

Emotional Cello has been recorded in the Mastermix Studio, Unterföhring/Germany. The instrument has been carefully mic´ed in a wood-paneled room with high ceilings and highest possible wall distance. Microphone recordings were performed intentionally close using two Neumann models KM184 and U47, preserving a discreet portion of the room´s excellent acoustics. At the same time, the close mic´ing technique easily allows external processing, e.g. to accomplish an overall ambience for the mix. Just as needed, the integrated convolution reverb of the Kontakt 5 Player or the pure unprocessed original sounds can be used.

Kontakt-Instruments

Emotional offers three true legato master-patches: Normal, Sulponticello and Harmonics. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations, which are logically interconnected using advanced scripting. For example: A note being played in the beginning will sound perfectly natural because the chosen sample will also be a first note of the source recordings. The same goes for legato- and sustained notes: All samples originate from a corresponding context of the original recordings.
Approximately 50 additional single-patches contain a selected articulation each. Choices range from simple sustain-patches to dynamic crossfades between four layers. These patches are useful for producers preferring to arrange different articulations on different MIDI tracks instead of switching these by key switches. To achieve highest authenticity and liveliness, the patches offer four round-robin-samples for long notes and up to eight for short notes.

 


Press Reviews

"This is the best solo cello library I have had a chance to get my hands on and it will definitely stay in my main orchestral template for a long long time." - TheAudioSpotlight

"Overall, Emotional Cello has some seriously expressive mojo. The secret sauce is in the brilliant scripting that they use to command the thousands of meticulously recorded samples in a way that allows a keyboard to intuitively control a solo cello expressively" - Audio News Room
