The Cello of Damascus is an ethereal instrument consisting of a multisampled bowed electric guitar which has been recorded and mastered in a way that gives it a uniquely cinematic and ethnic timbre which you may find suitable for your next game or film project.
This Kontakt instrument consists of 10 instruments, and 5 multis and features a GUI which makes tweaking the attack, added reverb, or EQ easy. The volume is mapped to the MOD wheel for added expression. These tweaks can totally change the vibe of some of the patches.
The instruments range from multisampled sustains, multisampled tremolo diminuendos, scrapes, FX, to synthy pads, all of which can sound "heartfelt, ethnic, or even downright creepy".
Cello of Damascus is for the full version of Kontakt 4.2 and higher (not Kontakt Player).
