The Dan Dean Solo Strings Advanced (DDSSA) from Dan Dean is a single DVD library comprised of violin, viola and cello samples released in the Native Instruments Kontakt 2 Player. The instrument is loaded with programming features, advanced scripting and Ensemble Presets.
The virtual instrument was designed to have plug-and-play/drag-and-drop functionality - find the instrument you want, open it and play. Sustain pedal controls and keyboard velocity behave is you would expect them to. And adjusting attack and sustain is readily available via MIDI.
Feature all articulations of each solo instrument (violin, viola and cello) accessible via key switching
All 6 articulations are laid out on separate key switches - arco, spiccato, pizzicato, tremolo, half step trill and whole step trill - allowing for instant articulation switching
