Vir2's latest release - Violence - is a Kontakt-powered virtual instrument which focuses on "extremely unusual textures, manglings, distortions, and perspectives on the solo violin."

Created for both musical use and sound design, Violence features a deconstruction of a solo violin recorded from numerous angles: bowed, scraped, hit, plucked, played with mallets, chopsticks, guitar picks, and wet fingers. The sound design was then repitched, layered, and post-processed through an array of unusual tools to produce sounds not found in other virtual instruments, the company says.

More than eighty patches have been designed, each with a custom set of scripted knobs and controls organised into four categories of sounds: Drum Kits, Melodic, Pads and Sound Effects, and Tempo-Synced.

Vir2 says that the inspiration for Violence came from the influential American composer John Cage, whose experiments with prepared piano yielded new timbres and effects - what Cage did on the piano, Violence brings to the violin, the company says.
