Spiritoso: Live Cello Phrases from EastWest is a 17GB collection of thousands of live recorded phrases, rhythms, chords and arpeggios, all compressed down to 8GB using KONTAKT 4's lossless compression technology. The library's content was performed by Ian Bracken, a world-class cellist from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded in Liverpool's famous Parr Street studios.
The fifty-seven KONTAKT 4 instruments allow patterns to automatically sync to the tempo of any project, while a wide variety of chords, rhythms, and scale types can be selected using key-switches. Recorded with three dynamic levels, phrases can be cross faded using the modulation wheel. Additionally, the ensemble size can be zoomed from solo to twelve players, and two microphone positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.
A great resource in itself, the library also works well when blended with other orchestral sample libraries to introduce an additional layer of realism and expression.
