Ldk1609 Violin

Creative Commons Attribution: ldk1609 @ www.freesound.org

This violin has a pleasant tone and a very natural sounding decay and with 250 samples and 6 articulations it is quite heavily sampled for a free instrument. Every note is sampled in a single velocity layer, though I extended the range a bit using the last high and low note.

There were some mistakes in the first version, that are now corrected.

Keystroke Articulations: 
E1 - Tremolo, F1 - Arco Non-Vibrato (Default), F#1 - Arco Vibrato,
G1 - Pizzicato Non-Vibrato, G#1 - Pizzicato Vibrato, A1 - Spiccato

Fiddling around - LDK1609 is the second half.


  1. I'd love to see these as SFZs -- I'm non-kontakt.

  2. Due to the large size, a cellist sits whilst playing with the main body of the instrument between the knees and the neck of the cello above the left shoulder. cello app

  3. Because the strings are so fine and subject to stretch during use, most experts recommend tuning a violin each time you take it out of the case to play it. violin app
