    STRADIVARI SOLO VIOLIN Now Shipping!

    As some of you have found out when the FedEx person showed up today, the Stradivari Solo Violin started shipping. All pre-orders have shipped. And just in time for the holidays!

    Stradivari Solo Violin is now shipping in Kontakt 2 format and the Kontakt 2 Player version is planned to be released as soon as Native Instruments makes the player available.

    The Stradivari Solo Violin represents a breakthrough in virtual instrumentation. The Stradivrari Solo Violin was designed to be playable in real-time, on one track and in one patch. No need to stitch together samples or search for articulations. Developed by Giorgio Tommasini, Stefano Lucato and Gary Garritan, this instrument uses exclusive "Sonic Morphing" technology. Morphing describes what can be seen in motion pictures where there is a gradual transformation from one image into another. This basic concept has been applied to sound samples allowing sound samples to morph into each other to provide expressive performance. This allows unlimited gradients of sound (rather than static snapshot samples) and allows for expressive performances.


    There are a number of mp3 demos on our site - http://www.garritan.com/stradivari.html.
    More demos will be posted soon.

    Merry Christmas

    Gary Garritan

    Oh my oh my, Strad already! How awesome. Looks like I'll be ordering something extra alongside the Kontakt 2 upgrade next week

    Sampling just evolved to an entirely new level folks, viva la revolution!

    Gary,
    The videos on your site are excellent but unfortunately download too slow to stream (even on my DSL trying to use the smallest video).
    But I downloaded the whole video and its really a great little tutorial on the violin!
    thanks

    Hi Gary,

    Congrats on the release! I guess I wasn't aware that this was going to be offered as a Kontakt Player as well. Will library owners be offered a crossgrade to the player?

    Thanks, Regards,
    Kevin L.

    I'd love to hear some demos of something "not-so-tonal". Berg Violin Concerto perhaps?

    Mine arrived today! Completely unexpected so soon, even with gary's ship announcement, I figured US mail, but FedEx to the door. Wow!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to the Garritan crew (and forum members.)\
    BTW Gary, page 7 of the manual states the package includes '1 CD Disc containing...' when of course it should read '1 DVD Disc containing...'
