Tina Guo vol. 2 is a valuable expansion of the original Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato library utilizing the same unique seamless legato recording and programming techniques. The legato in vol. 2 allows for more agile melodic passages and additional articulations including spiccato, marcato, harmonics, sul ponticello, and vibrato pizzicato. Combining vol. 2 with the original library provides a complete combination of Tina’s solo acoustic cello.
How is Tina Guo vol 2 different from Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato?
The primary difference is playing style. Tina Guo Acoustic Cello Legato features a romantic, espressivo style of playing that lends itself well to longer melodic lines. Tina Guo vol 2 allows for an agile, more connected style of playing. Also, faster playing naturally allows less time for vibrato on passing notes. Vol 2 also features more articulations not available in the original library (see below).
Otherwise, Tina played the same instrument at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, recorded using same microphones as the original library. Tim Starnes recreated the same mix as the original library as well as the desk mix from the Scoring Stage.
Selecting this adds a staccato attack overlay to the beginnings of sustains. Its volume is velocity dependent. They appear at higher velocities. The attack of sustains are also sensitive to velocity.
Selecting this allows monophonic voicing with recorded legato transitions. Unselected allows polyphonic sustain samples only. Legato transitions are sensitive to velocity.
Unselected, this includes Tina’s natural bow changes on sustained notes. Selected, it allows you to extend the bow length as needed. Simply re-attack a note when you need a bow change on the same note.
This controls the volume of the note releases. If set too high, it will sound like too much reverb and decay. A setting too low will give an unnatural sound to the legato transititons.
Legato Speed (CC02)
Higher settings allow for faster playing. Lower settings allow for slower playing and will reveal more of the recorded legato transition.
The Mod Wheel controls general dynamics.

MINI PHRASES AND EFFECTS
This patch contains a variety of cello effects and improvisation phrases in each key, and major and minor modes.
The RED keyswitches toggle between tonal and non-tonal samples.
The GREEN keswitches select the tonal center of the tonal samples.
The VIOLET keyswitches toggle between major and minor modes of the tonal samples.
Instead of playing back the entire sample as recorded, the GRANULAR button triggers a stream of “grains” or small chunks of audio that begin playing from the playhead.
The SPEED slider controls how quickly the playhead scrubs through the sample.
The DENSITY slider controls how many grains are generated per second. Higher densities may result in CPU overload.
The RANDOMIZE Slider randomizes the position of the playhead as well as the grains’ panning and microtuning.
