Experience an Authentic Viola Experience
A virtual instrument that sounds far beyond what digital is supposed to be, we captured the genuine tone and emotion of a solo viola by recording it at Platinum Sound in New York City.
This allowed us to keep the Italian handmade viola’s purity with crisp, clean, unaltered details free of reflections or coloring. In fact, we used the SSL 9000 series console, along with legendary U47 and M49 Neumann vintage microphones, to ensure vivid representation in each note.
Historic Sound Meets Innovative Technology
Cadenza Viola was originally crafted by hand using well-aged European tone woods and naturally seasoned spruce from the Italian apps. the same manufacturer as Cadenza Violin. Oil-varnished to bring out the rich vibrancy of the wood, it produces a sophisticated sound with color, depth, and a powerfully full voice and constant timbre in every environment.
It’s this sound that lead us to expand our Modeling Legato technology to bring you even more creative musical freedom.
Capable of supporting any technique, patches, or articulations with more control over the parametric. This allows you to manipulate shapes and sound variety in real time with smoother transitions between notes than a sampled legato.
Hybrid Vibrato and Tremolo
We further expanded our technology to achieve more authentic sounds from sampling without sacrificing creative control. For perspective, this means starting with non-vibrato and then fading in vibrato sustain while changing depth and speed. Or, you can also change Tremolo speed in real time while optimize control or to leverage human behaviors in the vibrato for enhanced realism in the final version.
Limitless Sound Shaping Possibilities
The Cadenza Viola offers far more sound-shaping options than a sampling instrument with five bands parametric EQ and more control over the harmonic partial sounds. This means you can quickly change timbre with a simple turn of a knob or tune every single note with the Scala tuning system.
We’ve also made it possible to finish all techniques on a single track with our performance keyswitch system that allows the Cadenza Viola to be used in live performances without sacrificing quality or efficiency.
Full Range of Articulations
No two sessions, songs, or musical experiences are alike, which is why Cadenza Viola has been recoded in a variety of formats to suit every need including vibrato, pizzicato, sustains, staccato, sordino, spiccato, harmonics, martellato, open strings and even Released & Trapped Martelle and Jeté—all to ensure it fits every musical style.
A Much Smaller Footprint will help you in a big project
Thanks to the latest Neo Hybrid Modelling technology, Cadenza Viola has a much smaller footprint than sample libraries. Not only the total size of the library, but also the RAM occupancy, which is only about 60MB for Cadenza Viola.
