The downloadable Artisan Cello from Spitfire Audio is a performance-oriented virtual instrument based on samples played by the concert and session cellist Chris Worsey. The sample library covers the character, performance, and playing-technique ranges of the cello with 13,002 studio-recorded samples. Each sample is available in a choice of six microphone mixes to help you achieve just the sound you want.

The Artisan Cello's graphic user interface lets you choose between three so-called patches: Performance, Various Articulations, and Time Machine. In the Performance patch you simply play your music on your keyboard without much manual customization; the Performance patch responds intelligently to your stroke on the keyboard and recreates your playing in cello sound with cello-specific articulations.

The Various Articulations Patch, on the other hand, is the patch you need if you want to manually control the type of articulation you want to apply to any particular note or group of notes. Each articulation has been recorded individually for true-to-life rendition of the cello's sound palette: long expressive notes, harmonics, sul tasto, sul pont, tremolo, staccato, pizzicato, and more. Lastly, the Time Machine is a tool for stretching - or compressing - short articulations to varying lengths. Time Machine stretching can be applied to any of the following short articulations: spiccato, pizzicato, staccato, and brushed spiccato.

Dynamics, vibrato, and reverb control open up a myriad of sound customization possibilities from each of the patches. The dynamics slider gives you dramatic dynamic-modulation possibilities from "ppp" to "fff" and everything in between. The vibrato slider helps you give the right expression to each note of your score, and lets you modulate vibrato even within notes. The reverb slider lets you recreate the acoustics of the hall or space where you would like your virtual session to happen. The samples of Artisan Cello were recorded in a purpose-built dry studio to give you maximum control over ambient effects.

Note: Requires full version of KONTAKT 5

Overview Panel
The overview panel gives you a quick and easy way to access, view, and load the different articulations, mic mixes, and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow.
General Controls Panel
This is a deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. You can choose, for example, how many round robins you want and how you want them to behave, or how memory is organized alongside pitch options.
This device allows you to build up complex rhythmical patterns that react to your playing to create original effects.
