Vienna Symphonic Library released Violin Runs for free

There’s a special quality to fast scales performed by an ensemble of string players. It’s the concurrent presence of precision and minimal random deviations in a well-rehearsed ensemble that creates the smoothness and vividness of string ensemble runs. So to increase liveliness and authenticity in your tracks, it may be better in some cases to use pre-recorded runs than creating a string run out of single notes. That’s why we recorded octave runs performed by an ensemble of 14 violin players in all scales and modes that are now available in the well-organized patch structure of the Vienna Synchron Player.

All runs are available in all minor and major scales as well as in Greek modes, always played upwards and downwards. What’s more, they’re all available in two variations: “Fixed runs” trigger a fast run as soon as you hit a key, landing on a long sustained note one octave higher or lower. “Perform runs” work differently: You play a long note, and once you hit a note one octave above or below, the run is performed toward that note which then is sustained again. You can also create beautiful longer passages by connecting upwards and downward runs, or by adding variations through triggering only a part of the runs.
