Cosmic Messenger

Post by dante »

For years I looked for a reasonably priced solo violin VST that didn't come bundled with megabucks cost of 'Hollywood' or 'Vienna' samples and wooden pics. Then came this - enter - the 'Friktion' rack. I used it to revoice this old Jean Luc Ponty classic, and then dusted off the trusty DAS F07 for the EPiano. Years ago I had spent hours trying to program that EP into my Kenton DX7 and found that on the F07 it could be made in nearly 2 minutes using mostly just 2 operators. The Friktion violin is the startup preset straight out of the box, tweaked only 1 CC parameter. And you can feel the modelled Resin without any CC.

The fiddle is Friktion. I already had a few pitch bends and mod wheel CC in the midi track, and I just dropped in Friktion where there was an NNXT sampler and didn't do much else except change the mod wheel CC to a single fixed value from start to finish to give sustain. And all the expression was happening. See the green rectangle (indicating automation) next to the orange 'articulation' triangle. Literally only a 30 second job.

Previously, when using an NNXT sampler, the fiddle melody was either weak in the low notes or weak in the upper notes. Couldnt find a sample that was expressive and powerful across the entire keyboard range but physical modelling defeats that issue I guess.

This dude had a similar idea from the reason forum, but way more riffy and intricate than mine. Worth a repost here for all u fusion cats lurking around :

I've seen that guy do videos on the Linnstrument. Very talented musician. I'll bet he's using that for the violin app.
