Intimate Legato - Cello
Introducing Intimate Legato: Cello, a solo cello sample library featuring a beautifully captured, natural sounding legato performed by virtuoso cellist, Nicholas Trygstad. With a wonderfully raw and life-like sound, this library makes it easy to create realistic and emotional melodic lines.
Built for the free Kontakt Player, Intimate Legato: Cello was recorded in a small church hall with a variety of microphone positions to capture the detail of the cello and the room. The library features a host of useful controls such as a “Rebowing” keyswitch, legato intensity and legato volume sliders, multiple microphone positions and a host of reverb presets, filters and distortions..
THIS LIBRARY WORKS IN THE FREE KONTAKT PLAYER AND IS NKS COMPATIBLE
Recording the Intimate Legato: Cello library was something that we've been planning for some time, in order to explore a new method of capturing legato instruments. Whilst this method only involved some minor tweaks to how we did it in previous libraries, we think the end result features a massive improvement in both playability and the overall realism of the library - something which is a hard balance to strike when sampling an instrument with a complex sound like the cello. After months of testing and getting feedback from our team and fellow composers, we think this library has evolved into something truly special. Whilst most string libraries require a lot of tweaking using the mod wheel, expression and other parameters to make it sound natural, this library sounds fantastic out of the box - you can simply start playing and create incredibly natural, emotional and intimate melodic lines and phrases.
To capture the rich and delicate tone of the cello, we teamed up with Nicholas Trygstad, who is the leader of the cellos for the Hallé Orchestra and an all around fantastic musician. To capture the beautiful tone of Nicholas' 18th Century Cello, we decided to choose a small church hall, to get both an up close and personal sound, but also capture the wonderful reflections and space that the hall had to offer. We captured 4 microphone positions, which are all controllable either individually, or simultaneously using the proximity fader. We also created a custom mix which can be used to get an instant mix without the need to tweak the microphone positions. Inspired by modern film scores, this library is perfect for soaring, emotional scores as well as dark, soulful and intimate melodies.
