Ben Osterhouse Cello Textures v1.4 KONTAKT

Team DECiBEL | 14 May 2020 | 496 MB

The “Cello Textures” instrument by Ben Osterhouse is a carefully curated playground of expressive cello articulations.

If you are looking for inspiring, niche string sounds to add splashes of color and realism to your music, this instrument is for you!

Multiple Articulations & Playing Styles!
“Cello Textures” employs a visually stimulating GUI inspired by Spitfire’s “Evo” series of instruments, that uses only shapes and arrows to communicate the articulation type and performance options.

Articulations & Effects
Four cello articulations: Staccato, Accent, Dramatic Swell, and Slow Swell
Each articulation recorded with 3 different tone qualities (normale, ponticello, fingered harmonics)

Performance Options
Up/Down Arrows – use these to transpose a particular articulation up or down an octave.
Loop – layers both a reverse articulation and a normal articulation so that they loop continuously.
Reverse Articulation – plays the chosen articulation backwards.
Random – by using the “Dice” button on the top left of the interface you can completely randomize which articulations and performance controls are activated, which can be great for discovering new and unusual textures!
Convolution Reverbs – choose from 4 convolution reverbs.
