Gentle and Raw

Vertigo Violin is a new addition to Cinematique Instruments' symphonic range. It is an exciting mixture of different playing techniques of the violin, which have been assembled into the Cinematique Instruments existing Vertigo Engine. The sound of Vertigo Violin is both smooth and rough and opens up the possibility to create very unique and soft string instrument tunings as well as more extreme and strange-sounding soundscapes. And all this is - as always - very organic and lively. It fits so well to all types of film music.


Essentially Vertigo Violin is a melange of 14 meticulously selected violin articulations and additional sounds which can be mixed freely to fulfil your creative vision in an intuitive and easy way. The overall sound is characterised by a warm and raw violin ensemble, with a special organic flavour.

Cinematique Instruments' aim was to deliver a unique and inspiring violin ensemble. Cinematique Instruments recorded different articulations (fragile, sul pont, harmonics, motion and bounce/ bow) with a varying amount of players. All sounds can be mixed, tuned and panned individually. Several articulations can also be varied in the number of players. Vertigo Violin comes with 13 presets to provide instantly playable ensembles.
All of these aspects come together to form the beautiful, rich and organic sound that is Vertigo Violin. Because of its unique assortment of sounds such as raw violin sounds or resynthesized sources as well as its organic human feel, it is a very special library. Please feel free to download the reference manual.

In addition, Vertigo violin comes with a portamento patch that plays fifths portamento in up and down variations - all in a polyphony of 1 to 8 violins.


14 Different Sound Sources:
  • Fragile (1, 3 and 4 players) - played very softly and close to the fingerboard,
  • Sul Pont (1 and 4 players) - Played rather harsh and close to the bridge and bowing noises,
  • Harmonics (1 and 4 players) - Typical soft flageolet notes,
  • Motion (1 and 4 players) - Moving between different articulations like long notes and tremolo,
  • Random Bounce (Leap) - Bouncing the bow randomly on the strings or synced in half, 4th and 16th Bounce and bowing noise,
  • 3 Resynthesized Violin Sounds - Fragile and Sul Pont sounds send through various modular effects and guitar pedals
All these sounds result in a wonderful tool to easily achieve inspiring as well as unique violin ensemble sounds. It gives you a rich and deep sonic experience.
