Poiesis Cello

For Kontakt Player 6.5.3+.

The first chapter in the Poiesis strings series is here.

We love organic textures and we love extended techniques: this is why we made Poiesis Cello. Poiesis Cello will allow you to instantly create beautiful (or beautifully ugly!) soundscapes that will inspire new music the first time you touch the keyboard.

"Poiesis Cello gives us everything from fragile beauty to unsettling darkness, with its intimate and detailed exploration of cello textures. This is a library of real quality at a very reasonable price." - Sample Library Review.

The sound.

Poiesis cello was recorded in a dry studio with three high-end microphones placed relatively close to the instrument, to offer an intimate sound that you can shape as you please.

The microphones used are a Neumann U87 large diaphragm condenser (LDC), an AEA R84A ribbon (RBN) and a Schoeps CMC/mk4 small diaphragm condenser (SDC).A pre-rendered stereo mix (MIX) with the single microphones in LCR position and additional processing is also included and it provides a ready-to-use, resource-friendly way to obtain a great sound, right out of the box.

The instrument recorded is a 1995 Moes & Moes cello built for and owned by Yo-Yo Ma and played by Alan Black, principal cellist with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.

"A suite away from the usual cluster of mainstream string libraries, providing excellent tones for experimentation." - Computer Music.

The patches.

Poiesis Cello features two different patches:

Textures is a two-layer instrument that allows you to choose between any of the 43 included articulations for each of the layers and freely crossfade between them using your keyboard's mod-wheel (midi CC#1).
Shorts is a complementary patch that features three velocity-sensitive short articulations sampled with 5 round robins and 3 dynamic layers (+ snap pizz. on the pizzicato articulation.

"I was taken by the delicate flautando and sul tasto styles (the latter of which has a nice tremolo variant) and loved the dreamy harmonics." - Dave Stewart, Sound on Sound.
