Textural viola


Blisko [blʹisko] Viola is the first part of an unique collection of three string libraries that dare to be different. Progressive string textures with a constant sense of motion, captured through amazing analogue kit. A project of love.

This is not yet another strings library. It’s not designed to be bread-and-butter, nor is it following any zeitgeist. Sampled humanly, it really feels like being in a room with a great player. Or up to three, in fact, because we overdubbed everything intelligently, changing playing styles and positions.

Inspired by the works of John Luther Adams, Henryk Górecki, Ben Frost and Ben Salisbury & Geoff Barrow, even the simplest, softest patches have a sense of constant motion, that gets denser and more emotional as you move through the dynamic layers. To keep it simple - play a chord and stuff will happen.
The library was recorded through a beautiful collection of hand-made microphones, going into vintage Neumann, Telefunken and REDD-style tube preamps. The kit was hand-picked for it’s character.

You choose between two close and two room signals and blend between them to your liking. And since we recorded in a dry studio, even the room mics are tight.

Whether you need an instrument to create evocative organic textures or a tool to bring life to your existing string libraries, Blisko has you covered.

‘Exceptionally useful
yet lovingly strange.’

- Hainbach


Evocative patches that never stop moving. You can create custom crossfades between different playing techniques, thanks to the intuitive layers interface.


Explore interesting rhythmic intervals between semi-measured notes.
The Cascade function allows you to delay the beginning of a note, per player.

Made by friends

Blisko was performed by an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist and friend, Marta Zalewska.

She played on every single score I produced over the past few years and her incredible sound is what makes this library special. 
During the recording, Marta commented that performing things this soft, with gain set so high, feels like playing under a microscope. I think it’s the perfect description of the tone and if I wasn’t so into minimalism, I’d put it on a poster.

Expression ready

If you own a MPE device, such as the ROLI Seaboard, you can perform the Moments patches using a multi-dimensional polyphonic control, shaping the textures on per-note basis. Standard MIDI controllers are supported as well.

Built-in effects

Blisko comes with a three-band EQ captured from a ultra-rare Austrian unit, as well as a vintage echo and reverb with three presets each.
