Poiesis Cello: a preview.

NKS Kontakt Player Poiesis Cello

We are happy to share the first official demo for Poiesis Cello, our new solo cello library.

Listen to "Fata Morgana" by Tristan Jakob-Hoff:

Poiesis Cello is the first chapter in our new Poiesis Series, solo strings recorded in a dry ambience with an exceptionally detailed and intimate sound.
The cello focuses on sustained notes sampled in a huge variety of articulations, short articulations are also available.
The engine allows you to choose any two articulations and freely crossfade between them.
Poiesis Cello is a Kontakt Player instrument.

The studio, the musician and the instrument
Poiesis Cello was recorded at The WavLab Studio in Fort Mill, SC at 96kHz/24bit (downsampled to 48kHz/24bit) using three high-end microphones and ultra clean preamps.

The signals available are:
LDC: large diaphragm condenser (Neumann U87)
RBN: ribbon (AEA R84A)
SDC: small diaphragm condenser (Schoeps CMC mk4)

MIX: a pre-rendered left-centre-right Stereo Mix of the three microphones.

The musician is Alan Black, Charlotte Symphony’s principal cellist playing a 1995 Moes & Moes cello, originally built for and owned by Yo-Yo Ma.
