Description: Energetic alto chord textures.
String Flow Viola is an example of a technique used by violists in which they quickly roll the bow across the strings to create energetic chordal texture. There are 2 ways to play the instrument.
The first way is straightforward: just choose what type of chord you want, what key you want to play, and then play the white keys. Whatever you play, you’ll get a harmony that matches the key you choose. It’s similar to Kontakt’s “Harmonize” factory scripts, except that in this case all the harmonies had to be recorded by hand!
The second way of playing requires more knowledge of the instrument and is more flexible. If you play a recorded chord, the instrument will play that chord on the viola. The midi clips that come with the instrument demonstrate which chords work.

– The interface reacts to the notes you play, showing how the notation will look to the player, as well as showing what voice, inversion and key the chord is in. This can be useful for those who want to write music for live musicians.
– Comes with a collection of midi clips to familiarize yourself with the instrument. They include a collection of short progressions and examples of all possible voices.
– Each chord was played for 4 measures (about 9 seconds). Loops are available for all samples.
– Chords are divided into 4 different types.
– Each chord is recorded at 2 velocity levels, and each layer has a normal version and a ponticello version that can cross-fade into each other using the modulation wheel. This is a good way to give the sound movement.
– The louder velocity layer has a rubato that adds contrast and emphasizes the bass line.
