VIOLIN UNTAMED is a solo violin library with the idea that samples should sound like a performance. At the heart of the instrument is our unique Improvised articulation; a series of evolving and improvised notes. This sounds like a musician taking your composition and adding an individual direction and human performance.

Performed at 3 different intensities; the quietest layer is subtle and delicate, the medium layer brings more emotion and character, whilst the loudest layer sounds wild, intense and often chaotic. They sound beautiful alone as individual notes or even more compelling when played as chord progressions.

With 8 other standard and extended articulations included, all performed with the same philosophy, VIOLIN UNTAMED is a Kontakt library for the composer that wants to sound unpolished, raw and human. 

  • Longs Articulations Improvisations - Normale - Flautando - Sul Pont - Tremolo Circular Bowing - False Harmonics
  • Short Articulations Spiccato - Pizzicato (including Bartok)
  • Performance Controls Dynamics - Expression - Vibrato Microphones Spot - Close - Room - Gallery
  • Effects Saturation - Stereo Width - Reverb - 3 Band EQ

This is How they Recorded It:

Recorded at The Nave, one of the North of England’s finest recording studios; a converted church with the most beautiful sounding live room. Engineer Alex Greaves used an impeccable set of classic microphones and vintage outboard to tailor the perfect sound for the violin. 

With a single Neumann U87 at the heart of the mix, a stereo pair of Neumann KM184s and then two pairs of Coles 4038s, we collected a really wide range of perspectives for you to mix exactly the sound you need.

Everything was recorded through through API 512 preamps, an AMEK Rembrandt desk and captured at 96kHz using A world-class Apogee AD16X analogue to digital converters.
