I found this excellent and very real-feel VST (Virtual Instrument) - essentially an add on Kontakt Bank. It focuses on Violins - and truly captured some remarkable and extremely life-like samples. I had to have it - but after reading the description for it - I had this SHARE IT first!! Isn't the story / history remarkable??

Check it out!


These instruments were made by the finest luthiers in history. With each articulation of every note played by virtuoso performers in Cremona’s Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi, and recorded in exceptional detail, their sounds are now immortalized for contemporary productions.


Though best known for violin making, Stradivari also made other stringed instruments. His ‘Stauffer’ cello, built in 1700, is listed as an Italian national treasure. Completing the quartet with luscious deep tones, it adds weight to the overall sound of the ensemble.

The sounds of CREMONA QUARTET were captured using a bespoke array of microphones and preamps, placed in a specially designed acoustic environment. Even the local people of Cremona played their part, with all traffic near the auditorium stopped for the duration of the recordings, to ensure that no external noise could interrupt the process.

Situated in the city of Cremona and the home of these precious instruments, the Museo Del Violino enabled the project by allowing the recordings to take place.

The Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi was purpose-built to allow stringed instruments to sound their very best.

The concert hall was designed by Italian architect Giorgio Palù, with consultation from pioneering acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota.

32 microphones were placed around the concert hall in order to capture every possible timbre from each instrument.

Also if you want to have Samples and Sounds, Loops and MIDI, Vocals and Sound Effects available for both free and purchase - please get ahold of us and cast your vote (I second that)

Think Im about to have a 'I second That' Sale - and everyone who buys is entered for a free sound bank since the first 'Official" DSS Loop Pack/ Sample Pack must be one for history - has to be a classic.

Hit us up on Social and let us know you want us to start investing more energies into the electronica/production/digital music production end of thigns and not so much analog instruments.
