pocketBlakus Free Solo Cello for Kontakt
Inspired by a post by HZ I decided to have a crack at a simple, slow moving, expressive solo cello. So I dusted off my cello and prepared for the worst. I wasn’t extremely careful because I wasn’t expecting it to work – but it worked out not too bad for a quick job! I have zero programming skills so just be aware that it is very primitive and has limited use (although it is beginning to be far more useful with the help of members of this forum!) I’ve also kept it dry so I suggest you soak it in your favourite reverb (even before playing it if possible LOL).
This is my first sampling attempt and I really enjoyed making this. I wish I had some scripting skills so I could do something more comprehensive now. I’m finding playing chords with the sustains patch quite a bit of fun too.
