Published: Sun October 15, 2006  News Feed

Garritan is pleased to announce that the Stradivari Solo Violin 2.0, the latest version of the award winning virtual solo violin software created by an Italian team in collaboration with Garritan, is now shipping. The new release makes this library not just a new version, but a new plug-in instrument integrating the Native Instrument Kontakt 2 sample player (you no longer need a stand-alone copy of Kontakt 2).

The major enhancement to the Stradivari Solo Violin include new Samples with a "Lyrical" instrument has been added for a fuller, sweeter and more dramatic tone, in addition to a "Classic" instrument, so there are in effect two violins to choose from. Performance and stability are improved with reduced CPU multiple instruments can be loaded and played in real time on a single computer. There is improved legato and note transitions, new bow change features, sustain pizzicato and other features in this new version.

The Stradivari Solo Violin 2.0 represents a major step forward in software musical instrument technology. The inclusion of the Kontakt 2 Players means that this instrument can work as a standalone, or as a plug-in in a variety of Mac and PC sequencers (VST/DX/ProTools and Audio Units) , DAWs, hosts and supported notation programs.

Thanks to the exclusive "Sonic Morphing" technology, the Stradivari is the only solo string library that lets you seamlessly crossfade among dynamics (pp to ff), continuously control the onset, rate and speed of the vibrato, and "shape" articulations in real time. The result of these technologies is extraordinary levels of realism, expressiveness and virtuosic performance capabilities in a way that preserves the natural characteristics of the Stradivari Violin.

Here is a demo of the Stradivari 2.0 performed by David Hearn.
