The Poiesis Cello sample library by Sonora Cinematic is a deep exploration of intimate and detailed extended cello textures and techniques for Kontakt Player.
The library was recorded with the skils of Alan Black, using Yo-Yo Ma’s “Moes & Moes” cello through a blend of high end microphones – the end result being 47 articulations that will allow you to create instant beautiful, organic soundscapes and textures for a modern cinematic sound.
The Poiesis Cello was recorded with a close microphone setup using 3 high end mics in a dry studio environment to offer a raw, upfront and focused sound that you can then shape yourself as required.
The following high end microphones were used in the recording to create a beautifully nuanced sound:
As resource friendly pre-rendered patch was also created with the individual microphones in an LCR position with additional processing to provide a quick and ready-to-use sound immediately.
The Poiesis Cello offers a wide variety of dry textural sounds with 43 articulations to choose from, ranging from normale gritty col legno and airy flautando to moving sul pont waves.
The library features two different patches – Textures and Shorts.
Textures is an instrument with two layers where you can choose between any of the 43 “texture” articulations and easily crossfade between them both using your keyboards modwheel (CC#1) to create a sound to moves from one sound into another.
Shorts is a smaller complimentary patch featuring 3 velocity sensitive short articulations (spiccato, staccato and pizzicato) that have been sampled with 3 dynamic layers and 5 round robins.
The sounds on offer in this sample library are dry, intimate, moving and evocative making it ideal for modern film scores and emotional soundscapes and textures.
Poiesis Cello can create a range of sounds from delicate and beautiful to dark and nightmarish.
Because it was recorded up close with a variety of high end microphones, its sound can be modified to your requirements to create a more dry sound or a more lush sound by adding your own reverb as required.
