    I am using this in a project I am currently working on.  One of my hobbies is writing new music for old silent movies.  I'm working on a Charlie Chaplin short, and this violin sound was just what I needed. I thought you might like to hear an excerpt:

    Very nice. So much more satisfying to hear your sounds than some of the standard GM violin.  Thanks for making it available.

    Sounds great. Love the way the vibrato creeps in naturally.

    Thank you so much!

    I will eventually make a new Violin SoundFont all by recording chromatic 6 velocity layered samples with multiple articulations / effects, that way this violin SoundFont will be the BEST out of all the other Violin SoundFonts out there!

    That sounds like an extremely worthwhile many of the old soundfonts out there are pretty bad.

    Comment from Arianna on
    Well have you checked out the aaviolin.sf2 soundfont?
    It's not that bad.
  • DC
    Comment from David C on
    Yes the aa sounds pretty good. Some of the 'violin' soundfonts I've come across don't actually sound like violins..they're probably sampled from old synth 'strings' patches.
