“Absolutely STUNNING! This is TOTALLY in my wheelhouse. My new FAVORITE instrument, hands down!!!“

SHAWN D.

“The Cello and Violin libraries are indispensable to me and exceed the qualities, sonically and in terms of articulations of some alternate libraries costing many times more than these instruments. Clearly they are focused on making these great libraries accessible...that is ferking cool “

DES O.

“If anyone's wondering whether this is worth it: Stop wondering. Get it. And then get Violin and Soprano as well.

They're all f-ing amazing, and work for so many more genres than you'd think. Sure, they're sweet for ambient and soundtracks, but I use them in avant-garde metal. Works like a charm.“

TOMMY B.

“It is brilliant, the bloody thing is alive!“

JOE P.

“I was using Soprano Textures on a score yesterday, but it needed some low end. Added the Cello Textures to it and WOW!!! They work beautifully together.“

FLOYD J.

“Just had to buy this. I don't usually buy sample libraries, but the sound quality of those presets sounds jaw dropping! Bought within 15 mins of hearing!“

ANDY M.

“Used this in a few cues already. It really plays nicely with other libraries as well. Thanks emergence for the hard work you put in to this.“

TIM P.

“Just used this and Soprano Textures to quickly add scoring to an animation that needed some somber epicness. Was so good and so easy“

MARTIN W.

“Superb, sublime, stupendous. It’s helped me create original, stunning, soundscapes, stings and score. 5*“

DOMINIC M.

“Absolutely brilliant!“

PETE C.

“It's Astonishing“

MARK S.

“I absolutely LOVED Violin Textures and began begging Emergence Audio for a Cello version almost immediately - And they did not disappoint! In fact, I think Cello Textures even surpasses Violin Textures! I feel I could take on any emotional soundtrack gig with these two great tools.“

THOMAS B.

“Very inspiring virtual instrument“

MARC B.

“Another awesome library at an excellent price. I am loving it“

DAVE C.

Bought this today. It is seriously bewitching and beautiful and

I can't wait to record with it! Thank you for creating it.

KATHIE B.

I have Violin Textures and now Cello Textures. I spent an hour just on the first Multi instrument after loading it up. Beautiful stuff with all kinds of possibilities.

ERIK L.

“Bought it. Played it. Excellent work - this is a fantastic library“

LIAM P.

“Super useful library!!!“

STEVEN C.

Just bought this and I have to say it’s quite stunning! One of the best libraries I’ve purchased in a while and it can give certain companies producing more expensive libraries doing a similar sort of thing a run for their money! Superb!

TONY P.

Violin Textures has changed my life haha... so I can only assume this one will too. Congrats EA on great products!

MICHAEL T.

“Another brilliant addition to the textures suite of instruments . I just adore spending time with these versatile libraries and look forward to the potential of an expanding range…well done Emergence team“

DES O.

“I'm speechless, you simply did it again to add some magic to those celli. WOW, I love it“

NON-STATIC sAMPLING™

MOVEMENT THAT FEELS INFINITE

Non-Static Sampling™ is an approach developed by founder Michael Vignola that introduces a constantly evolving and unpredictable quality into a sonic environment, adding depth and realism. Rather than simply relying on a short and static predetermined sample, this technique infuses each note sampled with subtle and unique variations in the performance over a very long period of time which preserves the natural complexity and richness of live instrumentation. This keeps the listener engaged and the performance feeling fresh, emotive, and dynamic. We believe when combining this technique with our Infinite Motion Engine™ we have created a powerful and innovative new tool that allows users to instantly elevate their audio productions to new levels of authenticity and artistry.

PHILOSOPHY

AN UNCOVENTIONAL APPROACH

Cello Textures is the second installment in our non-static string series. Expand your sonic possibilities with our Infinite Motion Engine™ and Non-Static Sampling™ which integrates emotion and synth programming all in one easy to use interface. 

We worked with world-renowned cellist Mariko Muranaka to bring this concept to life, and the results are stunning!

Our intuitive Infinite Motion Engine™ and Non-Static Sampling™ process allows you to blend and sculpt expressive sonic landscapes in new and unique ways that never feel static. Create pads, textures, soundscapes, drones and pulses for a wide range of genres including film, television and game scoring, contemporary era music, neo-classical music, ambient music, drone music, sound design, trailer music, new age/meditation music, and much more.

"I find the Emergence Audio instruments to be a breath of fresh air in the realm of sampled strings. There’s a level of emotion and texture in these sounds that I find to be incredibly inspiring and real. They’re now an indispensable part of my writing template."

ATLI ÖRVARSSON COMPOSER

SILO (Apple TV), The Hitman's Bodyguard, Defending Jacob (Apple TV)

"Emergence Audio’s Violin and Cello Textures are a new go-to favorite for intuitive organic pad design. As a violinist and electronic musician, I love how this library brings the human lyricism of live bowed instruments together with an innovative automated filter structure. This makes it fun, easy and inspiring to dial in new textures with a few twists of the virtual knobs. These libraries sound beautiful, tactile, and engaging."

RONIT KIRCHMAN COMPOSER

THE SINNER, EVIL EYE, LIMETOWN

"I found using Quantum and Violin Textures incredibly intuitive and inspiring. I appreciate how the process to get a desired sound can be as intricate or simple as you'd like while still landing in a great (and usable!) sonic space. The evolution and sense of space the patches have from the get-go make integrating these into my template a breeze!"

HANNAH PARROTT COMPOSER

THE CROODS: FAMILY TREE, GOLDEN ARM, THE HIGHEST OF STAKES

"Emergence Audio instruments have become a daily source of inspiration and a go-to in my work as a composer. Textures, pads, and pulses that have life and blend perfectly with live instrumentation. Evocative and beautiful in their simplicity. Sounds with a heartbeat. Emergence Audio has created a set of libraries that sound like nothing else out there."

CHRISTOPHER HOYT KNIGHT COMPOSER

WHO'S AFRAID OF NATHAN LAW, YELLOW ROSE, YOU (additional music)

“Violin Textures is a fantastic addition to my scoring template. I am always on the search for sounds that can be used in a hybrid style of scoring. These sounds bridge between organic and electronic in a very inspiring way. They will get a lot of use in the future.“

DANNY LUX COMPOSER

MANIFEST, GREY'S ANATOMY, HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION

“Really enjoying the infinite possibilities of Quantum. The sounds are very cool with a lot of analog character, and it’s lovely to just play some chords and hear the sonorities evolve. The GUI is easy to navigate, but there’s loads of control so you really feel like you can sculpt, modulate and perform to your own taste. I can see this being really useful for scoring anything from dramas to dark thrillers.“

DAVID BUCKLEY COMPOSER

THE SANDMAN (NETFLIX), JASON BOURNE, NOBODY, THE GOOD FIGHT

Complete underscore & ambient gold! Violin Textures is a beautiful library of moving soundscapes, beating pulses, and GORGEOUS pads that will find a home in underscore and ambient music. Filled with emotional movement, Violin Textures can add depth and emotion to your tracks.

SAMPLE LIBRARY REVIEW

“The pads are all tasteful and totally usable, none of those ‘filler’ presets that you get with so many libraries. Each one is so well crafted, I love this thing!“


JACOB YOFFEE COMPOSER

THE WONDER YEARS 2021, AMAZON'S FREE MEEK, DISNEY'S ANDI MACK

"Quantum is a beautifully designed virtual instrument that will transport you to another dimension. Evolving textures and evocative timbres abound. It's awesome to have this software in my sonic world!"

JORDAN RUDESS KEYBOARDIST & MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST

DREAM THEATER

"Quantum has become an essential instrument in my toolkit for adding rich texture and movement to my compositions. It features an intuitive GUI that inspires endless possibilities from scratch, while delivering beautifully crafted atmospheric and rhythmic presets ready to plug and play for the busy composer. Quantum is surely a secret weapon for the working professional and hobbyist!"

MATTHEW RAETZEL COMPOSER

FORGED IN FIRE, THE 11TH ORDER, RING OF SILENCE

“Soprano Textures has become a big part of my template. It adds such magic and color to my pieces. It also blends quite naturally with my voice. I cannot think of a better way to be inspired. So many ideas flourished because of it!“

SYLVIA NAVARRO COMPOSER

ALIEN WORLDS (NETFLIX), MOSUL (NETFLIX), EARTH IN COLOR AT NIGHT (APPLE)


Violin Textures is an incredible library that has the power to be the central and forefront part of a cue, or the nuance and subtlety of being an additional textural layer over a lush orchestration. Where Emergence Audio really shines is with how playable all the libraries are. EA’s libraries sound incredible even when playing and sketching them on a midi keyboard, whereas often other company libraries can sound artificial with unrealistic release/decays on the samples. Violin Textures sounds ready to go out of the box and there is a diverse range of presets, pads, pulses and controls to make it stand out in your own music!

SID ACHARYA COMPOSER

NASA, LISBON AQUARIUM, HOUSTON SPACE CENTRE

"Being a creator in multi-genres, Quantum has easily become an essential part of my creative palette. Immediately after going through a few presets, I was easily inspired by the quality, playability and ease of the GUI. Finding the sound you didn't know you were searching for comes quick and effortlessly. I'm happy to include this superb tool to my sonic template."

GILDE FLORES COMPOSER & PRODUCER

THE WOLVERINE, UBISOFT, LIONSGATE



“The Emergence Audio Violin Textures is a perfect tool for creating organic atmospheres and slowly building dramatic passages. Since the engine allows you to combine two articulations, the instrument is at its best creating natural feeling musical conversations; and there’s always a new story waiting!“

ARTTU SILVAST COMPOSER

YLE'S INSIDE ENCE, BAHER OF FINLAND

“My search is over for a library that bridges the orchestral and soundscape worlds. Quantum is amazing out of the box, and customized, the options are endless. Emergence Audio truly captured the feeling of infinity – it's an all-around great plug-in, a must-have for all studios, and a great addition to my dual synth keytar.“

NOMI ABADI COMPOSER

SEBASTIAN, NASA, NORY® DOUBLE SYNTH KEYTAR CREATOR
