Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Vertigo Cello, a Kontakt Instrument featuring a range of different articulations of a solo cello as well as playing techniques of a trio.
Cinematique Instruments says:
Vertigo Cello convinces with the ability - just like the other Vertigo instruments - to create organic and unique string moods as well as special organic soundscapes in an instant - all within the tonal spectrum of a cello. In addition, of course, you can also play legato sounds full of character.
As a bonus, we've included a portamento patch that plays fifths portamento in up and down variations.
Vertigo Cello provides 15 different sound sources:
- Sustained Cello.
- Sul Pont (all played with one solo Cello as well as Cello trio).
- Evoloving Random Bowed in two variations 1+2.
- Soft- and Hard Tremolo (all played with one solo Cello).
- Cloud Cello (Cello ran through several modular tools).
- Bowed (three cello bowing).
- Leap (random spiccato).
All of these playing techniques can be freely mixed and individually tuned, enabling your vision of cello sound in an intuitive and simple way. The overall sound of Vertigo Cello is characterized by a deep and vibrant string mood with an organic character.
Vertigo Cello has many different and interesting sound sources. Besides the well known Sustained Notes available as Solo and Cello Trio in three velocity layer, CI paid special attention to select special as well as unique playing techniques. They mention their special articulation called 'Fragile', which plays the cello absolutely quiet - at the edge of atonal bow scratching. This creates a liveliness, which gives the cello a special touch, especially when mixed with other articulations. CI also played the cello with circular movement ('Circular'), also recorded harmonics, sul ponto and evolving articulations in two different variations.
Vertigo Cello is rounded off by 2 resynthesized sound sources - here CI put the cello through some modules like tap delay, granular effects and special resynthesizer and created interesting textures.
Cinematique Instruments concludes:
In summary, the main principle of Vertigo Cello is the use of 15 different cello articulations that can be individually mixed, pitched and paned. In the master section you find very interesting tools, such as taped and spin speakers, with which you can create absolutely unique we sichs ehr intense and concise string sounds.
We have dispensed with a manual in the meantime. This is visible in the GUI on board - please just click on the small (i) on the lower left bottom.
As a bonus we give away a fifth portamento patch with one or four cello in up- or down intervals.
