I like the sound of Cellofan, but unfortunately it's a cello, not a violin, so it doesn't play above C4 (or something, don't remember exactly).

I don't know if you can still get it, but the old version of Sampletank Free included a violin I think. If you have any cash at all, and if can find one, the Sonic Reality Symphony Strings pack for Sampletank 1 included very nice violins and cellos - and lots more besides.

i've tried a pm model, but just haven't found anything near convincing for high notes.

otoh, for some apps, simple subtractive synthesis can usually please me.

Mmm, I gave it a try some time ago, I must admit I hated it, I even thought it was a joke at first, but it may sound good with a bit of tweaking, I don't know... If anybody comes up with interesting patches, I'm more than willing to try it again.

it not only depends on the patches but also on how you use them - in the right context it can sound relatively realistic - or no - let me rephrase that: it can sound relatively convincing... :)

StringZ was/is very promising. The demos sounded great. But, I had some trouble with unwanted noise/click/bump at the very beginning of the notes. Like an overemphasized attack, as it were... The ADSR couldn't cure it, to my ears...

I hope it's still under construction/refinement. Nice skin, btw.
