VSTBuzz are offering 62% off Viola Da Gamba by Ben Osterhouse for a limited time, now only €19.00 (usually €50.00).
Viola Da Gamba is a unique instrument with a full, earthy tone that differs from the violin or cello and can provide a rustic alternative to the classical string sound.
It is a library that can provide unique textures and sounds for Intimate Film Scoring, TV Music and Chamber/Baroque Music!
The Viola Da Gamba is a six-stringed baroque instrument. It’s similar in size to the Cello, but has a slightly different shape, uses frets, and is tuned in 4ths. It is strung with synthetic gut strings, which give it a strident, husky sound.
The Gamba’s earthy tones can provide a rustic alternative to the classical string sound. This is one of only a handful of other baroque virtual instruments recorded.
The Viola Da Gamba library is presented in two forms: Gamba Articulations and Gamba Rhythms – split into 2 nki’s:
NKI 1 – 12 Articulations
- Long Bow
- Endless Bow
All of the different articulations can be easily layered together within a single interface.
NKI 2 – Small Rhythmic Figures
These have been designed to fit together to create natural sounding ostinato patterns.
Each of the rhythmic figures can be accessed either by using key switches or using a unique interface which allows you to visually arrange the figures into a sequence.
Each rhythmic figure is recorded as a 4-bar loop, and the musical emphasis is given to downbeats and upbeats. This gives a natural ebb and flow to any ostinato pattern created with the Gamba.
It has a three-octave range from C36 (2 octaves below middle C) up to C72 (an octave above middle C).
If you are looking for organic, rustic Viola Da Gamba textures, this instrument is for you!
Viola Da Gamba requires a full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or later.
