Master Solo Strings - Solo Viola
Version: Kontakt 4 / WAV / V1
Emotive Master Solo Viola
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
When approaching the master solo strings, our initial thoughts were to begin with the solo violin, as out of the four main bowed string instruments, it is by far the most prominently used soloist instrument. With further consideration, we decided it might be perfect to focus and actually begin with a meticulously sampled solo Viola. There are already many sampled violins, and we have contributed some ourselves, so lets open with the viola!
The instrument is carefully sampled, with multiple legato modes at different dynamic layers, cross-fadeable with MIDI CC1 (mod wheel)
Over 23,000 samples!

4 LEGATO MODES
As you can see, there are four legato modes, normal legato with and without vibrato, and portamento with and without vibrato.
Controls on the GUI allow you to also control the legato interval volume, as well as legato interval length, and portamento length, allowing for fast snappy note changes, more expressive drawn out intervals, or short/long slides between notes.
This instrument requires the FULL VERSION of Kontakt 4, or above (so it will also run in Kontakt 5 perfectly). The full version of Kontakt 4, is not the free "Kontakt Player", which can be downloaded, it is the full retail version which can be purchased from Native-Instruments' website.
You will need just over 10GB for the instrument, and almost double this for the extraction process.
