Here comes a demo for the patch Major Clouds Split, layered major goodness all derived from arpeggiated cello and violin chords. I think this has to be scripted patch as there are so many controllable things and the 8 Macros, Modwheel and Aftertouch which I have currently assigned don't cover all of the controls I'd like to have.

Multisampled psaltery tremoli in unison mode (3 voices, Modwheel for detuning up to +/- 1 octave) with two keyswitchable articulations (plectrum and chop sticks) meets Cello Glissando Scanner, where you can scan through two multisampled gliss phrases with the wheel/Macro and add all sorts of temposynced modulations (triplet based):

Jamming with three fresh patches in this track, temposynced cello loops multisampled over an 2 octave range, with keyswitches for either finger plucked pizz or drumstick beaten pizz, then we have Spilt String Scapes which have temposynced modulations for filter and amplitude on board, and the solo sound is named Sul Pont synth, multisampled sul pont cello mixed with FM synth also keyswitchable for different electronic layers. It's so good just to just jam with these sounds after all those days of sample editing....

This new demo track combines two fresh patches all with electric guitar sounds or derivatives thereof, splits and layers, one MachFive synth involved involved layered with one of the guitar drones, all fully controllable. This one is quite a trip:

Two fresh patches with various electric guitar flageolets samples and textures are used in this ambient demo, this was played live in two passes including all the Macro controller tweaks, Modwheel and Aftertouch:

Quick impro with the patch Granular Vibrato Bows - multisampled vibrato cello notes with long bowing (8-10 bows per note), in the demo I was controlling the bowing speed with a Macro, controlling cutoff with the Modwheel and sometimes adding some overdrive with another Macro, played live on disk:

This is a demo for the patch from Ambient Strings using long mutisampled tremolo samples, each note has 2 dynamic waves where the bow moves towards the brigde and back creating a transition of harmonics, a keyswitch let's you add a wavetable synth which uses an imported single cycle from a cello sustain, you cam control it's volume in the interface. The cello plays up to C3, then the violin takes over up to C5, all thirds (sometimes minor, sometimes major) were sampled. Sample start can be randomized with the Modwheel (up to 50%) or you can set sample start with a controller. Lot's of filtering and FX options/sounds are available.

Here comes a new demo combining two patches, Granular Glissandi made with multisampled cello octave glissandi and their electronic derivatives, you can keyswitch between natural and electronic gliss, control the gliss speed, or freeze the sound and control sample position with the Modwheel/Macro and do all sorts of other things with it. The other patch uses processed arpeggiated minor chords from violin/cello in split mode, layered with an arpeggiated synth. Both patches will have scripted interfaces.

Here comes a new demo combining two fresh patches - Violin Spiccato Synth which combines multisampled spiccato violin with 3x round robin with a analog synth module in unison mode, in the background there is the patch Oud Rattle Drones and Ebow, combining rattling oud drones in the lower keyboard region with multisampled e-bowed western guitar in the upper region.

New demo combining 3 fresh patches, all sounds you here are derived from violin samples, where the instrument was tuned to G-D-G-D, so one can play arpeggios and textural stuff just on open strings only resulting in octaves, fourths and fifths. 100% MachFive, 3 instances are used in the demo, tweaking some of the Macros, Aftertouch and Modwheel on the fly. The natural samples play in split/granular mode and are layered with their processed counterparts in sampling mode, full control over levels and numerous parameters is available, I'm not sure yet if I can afford the scripting of all of these violin patches but I'll try.

These patches belong to the most magical ones I've done in my life, I could bath for months in these sounds.

Received the next scripted patch from my scripter Iain Morland today, Major Clouds Split, all sounds you hear are derived from cello and violin arpeggiated chords in major, split and layered:

Finishing this working Sunday with a granular flautato pad, layering musltisampled long-bowed violin flautatos with an analog synth module in unison mode (3 voices). Tweaking the 8 Macros and the Modwheel on the impro fly, changing things like bowing/sample speed, filter/pan animation, tuning of the synth's tuned bandpass filter up an octave, flanger amount, detuning the grains and the synth uni detune and more.
