Spitfire presents Warren Zielinski´s ´Artisan Violin´

With 11 deep sampled articulations and 6 different mic types and perspectives, 12,691 samples and 14.22GB of uncompressed raw WAV (48k 24bit) data (DL footprint is 7.77GB of lossless compressed data) we're sure you'll agree this is a characterful but definitive take on this very unique player.

Warren is one of London's most active session players, with more than 1500 Popular Songs and over 200 Major Film scores to his credit. Film highlights include: Shakespeare in Love, Gladiator, James Bond 18-23, Harry Potter, The Lord of The Rings, Shrek, & the recent Batman and Almodovar Films. Pop music recording highlights include albums for Sting, Madonna, David Gilmour and Joni Mitchells epic ‘Both Sides Now arranged by Vince Mendoza. Warren is also a regular Featured soloist on the BBCs popular “Strictly Come Dancing” Television program.

Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag", and as perfect companion to Chris Worsey's 'Artisan Cello', Spitfire leads on with the next instalment in our characterful instrument range, our personality led, performance oriented sampled virtual instruments that are finding their way onto award winning recordings the world over.

Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument with a host of "artisan" phrases, standard and additional techniques, including "performance vibrato" that gives you a realistic sounding presentation of the instrument out-of-the-box. Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Warren. A man who always brings a distinct element of edge to sessions we book him on. The zeitgeist violin style we're all looking for from searing emotion to heart breaking timidity.


We've used our purpose built "dry" stage in central London to record this via 6 top-of-the-line valve, ribbon mics and perspective into top-of-the-range NEVE mic pre's and Cranesong and Apogee AD converters.


We like instruments that just open and play. So we have worked for many years to create a simple to use and uniform GUI so you learn one, you learn them all. With the Euphone we have also created a different way of working with your new sounds.

Artisan GUI


A simple UI panel that allows you to access the sounds available in this library and mix them together. Alongside the various signal chains sampled which can also be loaded, mixed and assigned to different output via this panel. You can also tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave?
