Description : Con Moto – Cellos is a string library recorded with movement in sustain, legato and attack / release.
The bowed sustain offers continuously expressed vibrato and emotions through approaches to performance and editing. resonating attack notes and carefully prepared release samples obtained from musical performance units turn into a game that provides a smooth change in the length of notes, similar to previous Performance Samples libraries.
In much the same spirit as in Oceania, Con Moto – Cellos continues to follow the path of “sampled energetic releases” and recognizes the endings of phrases in terms of performance as a critical tool element in the functionality of sampled releases. Transitions of legato-change of bow position cover all of this together, and when the entire library is presented musically, the result is an air ensemble with a coordination of phrases, vibrato and expression.
