Cello + twine x reverb = Cloud Cello

Product Overview

Cloud Cello is a new take on an old instrument using unlikely bowing materials and techniques to make entirely new sounds that go from huge 'superwave' pads to intimate and delicate solos.

Seven deeply sampled articulations through eight 'oscillators'. ? Accented bow: short bowed note with conventional bow. 5 x round robin per note. Two mic positions- valve condensor and contact mic. ? Col legno: Latin for 'gently thwacked with the back of the bow'. 5 x round robin per note. Two mic positions- valve condensor and contact mic. ? Twine: bowed with 5 meters of coarse garden string. 5 x round robin per note, minimum 20 seconds per sample. Two mic positions- valve condensor and contact mic. Hard-wired to CC11 for expression pedal or MIDI controllers. ? Dark Cloud: Twine recorded 100% wet reverbed through Strymon Big Sky hardware reverb. Playback through Kontakt grain oscillator. ? Pale Cloud: the Dark Cloud recorded 100% wet reverbed through Strymon Big Sky hardware reverb unit, so basically 200% wet. ? Sub Bass: (ensemble only) Moog Voyager sine bass. ? Effects per oscillator: tremolo, vibrato, saturation, pitch selection, pan, lowpass filter, high pass filter, reverb and delay. ?
