Denny Jaeger Master Violin Library

Sample CD Buyer's Guide

Published in the UKs Sound on Sound January 2000

Disc 1: Loud Violins

Disc 2: Soft Violins

Disc 3: Tremolos, Trills & Pizzicatos

 

Comments: Nothing but violin sections, painstakingly recorded at semitone intervals, compiled and seamlessly looped by an apparent obsessive (I mean that as a compliment, but if you meet Denny Jaeger at a party, don't get him started on violins). By layering short-attack samples with matching sustains, very realistic performances of anything from soft legato chords to fierce staccato melodies can be programmed.

 

Of course, sampling instruments at every semitone is great for sonic realism, but heavy on sampler memory. Mr Jaeger's compromise is to divide the sustained sounds into three alternative volumes, each sampled at minor thirds. If you have sufficient memory, these can be layered to provide further lushness. The attacks, being a lot shorter, are presented with all semitones present.

 

It's also worth pointing out that a violin's bottom note is G below middle C, so you will have to look elsewhere for real low-end strings. However, some artfully detuned violin section samples are provided in a valiant attempt to fill the gap.

 

Standouts: Purely a question of musical aptitude, as the quality is excellent throughout. For a classic legato string sound, layer the '2MP' and '5MP' programs from the second disc.
