Karoryfer x bigcat cello
This collaborative release by Karoryfer Lecolds and bigcat instruments is a cello sample library for Plogue sforzando and Native Instruments Kontakt, which is intended to be flexible and easy to use. The recordings are close-miked, recorded without vibrato, and unprocessed, so there's no pre-baked reverb, compression or EQ. You can shape the vibrato and other aspects of the sound using the provided controls and external effects, which makes this cello especially suited to pop, rock or EDM tracks.
The cellist had just received her master's degree in cello performance a few days before these samples were recorded, and now performs with an orchestra. At the time the samples were originally recorded, she also was the cellist of a pop/rock string quartet. In her spare time, she enjoys pretending to ride sculptures of penny farthing bicycles (or so it seems from the GUI wallpaper photo).
All notes are sampled every minor third. There are also bonus harmonics slides and percussive noises mapped to the keys above the notes. Sustain (looped for infinite sustain), staccato and pizzicato samples are the main articulations.
Total number of samples: 479. Total download size: 126 MB.
The Sforzando and Kontakt instruments both include controllable vibrato, legato and humanization though the implementations and quite different. The Sforzando instrument also adds 4-voice and 8-voice mappings as a bonus.
