@terezka - here's the thing I was referring to in the Xmas project thread....  

Is it a violin? Is it a viola ? Is it a cello ? Actually, nope, it's none of the above - it's a bit of a mutant-ninja-fiddle....

4/4 fiddle, restrung C, G, D, A becomes a viola. ( well, sort of ).   Electronically drop the viola sound by an octave - woo hoo - I got me a cello.  ( well, sort of ! ) bunny-headbang

feature=youtu.be

The piece was of course only played once - the original actual audio (viola part) captured by studio mic. The "cello" part was caught by the $5 piezo pickups stuck on the back and fed through a BOSS ME80 guitar effects box, set to drop frequency by 1 octave. The two voices (actual audio and the BOSS ME80 output) were subsequently recombined for the "dual instrument" version....

The "cello" sound is actually better than the 'raw' viola IMO !!!! roflol

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
