The Gofriller Solo Cello from Garritan represents a major step forward in software musical instrument technology and provides a level of realism and expression never before heard in the industry. This virtual instrument integrates the Native Instruments Kontakt 2 sample player and can be used as a standalone instrument, as a VST, DXi, RTAS or Audio Units plug-in, and can be used with supported notation programs like Finale 2007.
Gofriller Cellos (made nearly three hundred years ago) are among the finest cellos ever made and are known for the rich and beautiful tone. Just as real Gofriller Cellos are so well made that they are considered the best of their type, Garritan wanted to produce a sample instrument library that would be the best cello library ever made. The finest instruments are the ones that will allow musicians to express themselves best, whether they are three hundred years old or in the form of today's software instruments.
The Gofriller Solo Cello Sample Library is a true musical instrument designed to be played expressively, in real time. This instrument allows the user to play beautifully expressive and believable sound that can be played and performed as music, in real-time, rather than put together like a jigsaw puzzle or tweaked after the fact.
Thanks to "harmonic alignment" technology (developed & patent-pending by Giorgio Tommasini), and using specially devised convolution impulses for the body of the violin, using a technique developed & patent-pending by Giorgio Tommasini & Stefano Lucato, this sampled Gofriller Cello 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.
"Harmonic Alignment" allows you to morph between samples. Morphing describes what can be seen in motion pictures where there is a gradual transformation from one image into another. First used in the Garritan virtual Stradivari Solo Violin software, this basic concept has been applied to sound samples allowing them samples to morph into each other seamlessly and hear authentic timbre changes as notes become louder or softer. Sophisticated modal resonance technology uses instrument body impulses and allows you to control the onset, intensity and rate of vibrato, impart portamento and much more. In addition, with the powerful AI midi processor you can change or create articulations in real time, change the type of attack or bow direction, impart legato, play trills & tremolo and have an infinite variety of playing possibilities at your fingertips. All this in real time!
The result of these technologies is extraordinary levels of realism, expressiveness and virtusosic performance capabilities in a way that preserves the natural characteristics of the Gofriller Cello. This virtual instrument leaps to life beneath your fingertips!
- Retriggering mode (when you release an overlapped note holding the first note down, the latter is played again), for much more realistic trillos
- Sull'altra corda mode
- Bichord portamento
- Independent control of bow noise level
- User controlled randomization of vibrato rate
Gofriller Solo Cello Virtual Instrument Sample Library
- System Requirements:
- Works on PC & Mac platforms (OSX 10,4+)
- Works with all sequencers that support VST, DXi, RTAS and Audio Units
- Works in real time on a P4 2.6+ GHz (or a comparable Mac), with a CPU load of about 20-25% (convolution included)
- (A faster computer will yield more efficiency and also Kontakt 2 purging will significantly decrease the CPU load)
- A keyboard with a six octave range, Pitch Wheel, Mod Wheel, Sustain Pedal, Channel Aftertouch, and Expression Pedal or similar controllers are required to get full use of the product
