THE MAKING OF A CLASSIC
STRADIVARI VIOLIN is the culmination of several years of collaborative planning and execution by e-instruments, Native Instruments, and the Museo del Violino in Cremona, Italy. The museum launched the project to digitally preserve the iconic historical instruments in its collection while enabling a new generation of contemporary musicians to use them in their own work.
The Museo del Violino showcases rare and priceless historical instruments, spanning several centuries, that reflect Cremona’s deep tradition of unparalleled artisanal skill.
Responsible for producing SESSION STRINGS and SESSION HORNS, e-instruments specializes in crafting intensely detailed sampled instruments. With STRADIVARI VIOLIN, the e-instruments team captured the timeless beauty of the original instrument in a rich acoustic space using the highest-quality recording equipment. Every note on each string was expertly articulated by a master musician, enabling you to incorporate the violin’s authentic sound into your next production.
