I have a few "string texture" plug-ins, but none of them compare to Violin Textures. There is a sonic quality to it that fits so well with a sound track but also makes it stand out.

Frank C.

Absolute beauty. The violin player is incredibly sensitive, and the programming and processing is at the same artistic level.

Jose L.

This library has brought so much more character to my music.

Karl V.

“Wonderful instrument, very easy to use and creates the most lush and emotive sounds. It's like no other library I own. Highly recommended”

Dave C.

“Bravo Mike for creating such a stunning library that I have wanted for many years!

Matt R.

“It has that certain, special magic that's quite hard to find, more than the some of its parts and especially at this price point. It breathes

VI-CONTROL Member

I must say this is an amazing product for an insanely low price. I've been looking for droney, textured, atmospheric pads like these for a while (and thats saying a lot since I own libraries like Omnisphere) and these are wonderful. Well worth the price that's already low to begin with! Thanks and keep it up. Definitely gonna keep an eye on future releases.

Chris S.

WOW, I can say without hesitation these are the best soundscape libraries I have ever heard or used. So creative... so many possibilities.

Nick H.

Probably the finest software purchase I've made! Stunning organic textures.

Joanne S.

OMG! I love this SOOOO MUCH!!! Just what I was looking for!

Thom C.

I am in love. So, so expansive and lush

Jeff L.

“Installed this yesterday. Blown away by it. Already used it for a film trailer!”

Paul H.

“Really adds a lovely organic element to orchestral arrangements. It's adding a great deal to my TV productions - quickly and efficiently.

It's an excellent cost-benefit ratio in terms of the vibe added.”

Tim R.

I am loving this instrument.

Gareth W.

Just ordered my copy and tested it out! It’s like nothing I have ever played. Real violins sampled beautifully.

The sound, textures and effects have all but inspired my latest Super 8mm film project. 10/10 from me! 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 audio 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

Violin Textures is the first 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 brought in the expertise of world-renowned violinist Francesca Dardani to help us create an emotionally moving nuance, 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
