Produced by Nick Phoenix, Quantum Leap Solo Violin is a virtuoso solo violin recorded at Remote Control Productions, a film score facility in Santa Monica, California run by veteran film composer Hans Zimmer and home to the scores of many of today's top films.
Quantum Leap Solo Violin includes 5 passes of true legatos sampled intervals, Legato soft, legato forte, expressive legato, portamento and fast legato/ trill/ run.
Quantum Leap Solo Violin features round robin up and down bowing on most articulations and is the first violin virtual instrument that can handle very fast playing and live trill playing with ease. All of the basic articulations were sampled as well as various expressive articulations, vibrato styles and non vibrato.
CC11 controls volume on all patches and CC1 or mod wheel controls crossfading or sample switching on all MOD programs. All programs are listed under the "Content" tab.
Quantum Leap Solo Violin has a sound and character ideally suited for film and classical work.
Quantum Leap Solo Violin includes the latest version of EastWest's PLAY software featuring 2 new solo violin reverb impulses designed to make Quantum Leap Solo Violin blend well with other EastWest/Quantum Leap collections.
Please note, Quantum Leap Solo Violin is not part of the Hollywood series and was recorded in a different location.
