Kinematic Composer Cello - Breathtaking Organic Cello Instruments

At the heart of this instrument are 3762 meticulously crafted samples, recorded at Kinema Audio’s renowned 1600sq foot Studio 1.

The instrument also includes 9 complimentary analogue pads crafted to underscore and support your Cello compositions.

All patches have 3 controllable mic positions: Center, Stereo and Room.

The Analogue Pads are also multi mic’d with Dry, Room and Verb control.

A signal chain incorporating Microphones from Flea, Coles and Neumann into Neve Preamps and Prism Conversion was used to record Liz’s vintage Cello, an instrument made by Thomas Smith at the Harp and Hautboy, Piccadilly, London 1765.

Kinematic Composer Cello is the first instrument from Kinematic: a new Kontakt instrument collection from Sam Brown (of Paper Stone Instruments):

Kinematic is the fusion of my ideas as a composer and the collaborative input of session musicians to form uniquely organic, inspiring instruments for Kontakt.”
