STRINGPOOL’s development process meant that violin virtuoso Sofia Bartlett had to undergo many agonizing days of excruciating sampling.
While I calmly sipped my coffee, Sofia spent hours beautifully extracting lyric notes with a long bow from her 200-year-old instrument. Four different velocities with a vibrato tint are recorded for each note. She sincerely suffered for our art. From these hours of recordings, I created hundreds of seamless, clean loops and an alternative set of “processed” samples, distorted by tape and lamps. It was then packaged into a comprehensive Kontakt engine with a simple interface and a wealth of expressive capabilities.
