Bohemian Viola - Realistic Violist Performances

To achieve realism, we recorded an unprecedented amount of samples for a solo instrument, but managing all this by loading individual patches would be slow and cumbersome and stifle inspiration.

This is where the virtual performer comes in, controlling all the varied legatos, bow types and emotive expressions as you play, all from one patch and all in real time.

Performances with Evolving Emotion

Anticipating how to perform based on your playing input is only part of the magic, the virtual performer can also be directed to alter its emotion during performing by switching through alternative play styles called moods.

Play harsh with assertive, through too emotional and gentle with emotive or play a varied off the cuff mockup with improv, classical mood and finally short, sharp, lively with sprightly, all with the tap of a key.

Switch into Maestro, the first poly performer legato, play as many notes together as you wish and let our poly performer choose the appropriate legatos and bow types for you.

Captured in Momentum

In Bohemian Viola, every note is sampled with hundreds of intervals, multiple dynamics and varied speeds, packing emotion into every performance while remaining in true musical phrase, from first note to the last.

Our legato is always captured in phrase and in a musical context, resulting in each legato played being a true sample of a real performance.

Each articulation and mood can be forced upon the performer using an assignable key, granting you the ability to adjust the performers behaviour should you choose to.

The Virtual Performer enables incredibly easy live play, Auto selecting the bow types, legatos and bow positions based on your play style.
